Question:

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

Respected ‘Ulama

I have a problem. I constantly watch pornography. This started after I was getting down about not getting married and I accidentally came across a site. I have tried to quit but I’m finding it difficult to do so.

I have definitely lessened my time with porn over the past few months but it still happens. Sometimes, while I’m watching, I start regretting and close it. Sometimes, just after I type in the title, I close and leave, but sometimes, I watch for 20 minutes and I hate that.

Please advise me. I hate doing this.

The Poisoned Arrow

Allah Ta‘ala has blessed every person with five basic senses; taste, smell, touch, hearing and sight. It is through these five faculties that each person perceives the world around him, responds to the stimuli he experiences and is able to interact with his environment.

On hearing a pleasant sound, smelling a fragrant scent, seeing an attractive sight or touching something dear and beloved, the heart is immediately affected. It is filled with happiness, causing one to react with joy and delight.

Thus, the five senses can be regarded as the ‘gateways’ to the heart, while the heart itself can be regarded as the ‘command centre’ of all the limbs of the body. Therefore, in order to protect our heart from evil influences that will motivate the limbs towards sin, it will be imperative to protect the five faculties and senses, and shield them from all sins and temptations to haraam.

Practical Advice for Mothers

Question:

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

Respected ‘Ulama

We run a WhatsApp Muslimah mothers’ group and these are a few common questions and challenges that we would really appreciate some advice regarding:

1. Motherhood is so consuming, and we’re so busy the entire day (and most of the night too) that we feel like our ‘ibaadah is slipping. Our namaaz is rushed and we are unable to concentrate properly because one child is always crying. We don’t get peace to read Quran properly or make extra zikr. Sometimes, we even have trouble getting up for Fajr because the baby is up all night. How do we balance being a mother and being a good Muslimah?

Keep Your Distance!

Every parent loves his child and tries his best to keep his child safe from harm. Even in the home, the parent understands that the young toddler is exposed to certain dangers which threaten his safety. Plug points… detergents… knives and scissors… Swimming pools… These, and other similar things are common in many houses, yet pose a grave threat to the safety of the child.

Out of deep love for the child, and wishing well for the child, the parent firstly educates the child and tries to teach him that these things are dangerous. When the young child stretches his chubby and grubby fingers towards the detergent cupboard, the mother will raise her voice and call out in a stern tone, “NO! NAUGHTY!” Thereafter, if the child persists in trying to play with the dangerous item, she may even punish him.

However, a sensible, loving parent will not only suffice on teaching the child harm from benefit. For instance, the parent will not leave a knife within arm’s reach while telling the child, “Don’t touch.” Rather, the parent will also put into place preventative measures which will be conducive to the child’s safety.

Leaving Islam due to Presumptions and Feelings

Question:

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

Respected ‘Ulama

Two years ago, a Christian girl reverted to Islam. We, the Muslim girls around her, welcomed her and supported her as much as we could. She was always known to read all her salaah. 

A day ago, we found out that she reverted back to Christianity. After asking her why she did so, this is the response we received: her grandfather, who is a Christian, fell ill recently. During his illness – which was concluded to be terminal – priests would visit him and pray for him. He was later cured and the doctors considered this a miracle.
