Question:

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

Respected ‘Ulama

I have recently developed an addiction to watching videos on YouTube. I know it’s wrong and most of the videos contain music as well as pictures of men which is zina of the eyes.

I know that if I continue watching, it is going to slowly strip away my modesty and further weaken my already weak imaan.

I feel very guilty after watching the videos and it disturbs be greatly. I have made istighfaar and tried to stop it, but due to my weakened state, I keep going back.

Please give me some advice as to what I could do to stop for good.

Jazakallah

There was once an eagle that lived atop the highest of mountains, nesting among the crags. One day, the eagle felt curious about the village that lay at the foot of the mountain and decided to pay it a visit. As it landed on the ground below, an old lady suddenly threw a sack over it, capturing it and taking it to her home!

Once at home, she took the bewildered and frightened eagle out of the sack. Never having seen an eagle before, she looked at it and exclaimed, “You poor bird! Nobody’s been looking after you! Your nails are so long and filthy! And your beak has become curved and sharp! And your wings are overgrown! Shame!” Saying so, she clipped the eagle’s wings. Then, she trimmed its beak. Finally, she cut its talons.

Obviously, that was the end of the eagle. With its wings trimmed, it could no longer fly. With its talons trimmed, it could no longer hunt, and with its beak cut, it could no longer eat. What seemed like kindness was, in reality, absolute cruelty to the eagle as it effectively killed the bird. Furthermore, it obliterated the beauty and unique features of the eagle, which lay in its curved beak, hooked talons and large, powerful wings, and rendered the eagle indistinguishable from an overgrown chicken.

Question:

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

Respected ‘Ulama

I have been trying to convince my parents to get me married to a certain boy that I have known since childhood as we both like each other and would like to get married. However, my parents are very judgemental and seem to hate him because he is not from a high-status family.

They do not want to listen to me or any of the ‘Ulama that we have spoken to regarding this marriage. I was even told that I would never get married to him – even if it means staying unmarried for my entire life! I have received proposals from other boys, but I am simply not interested in anyone else.

Please help me and tell me what I can do.

Jazakallah

Struggling to Success​

A little boy was once playing in the garden when he noticed a cocoon hanging from the branch of a tree. As he watched, he was surprised to see a tiny hole appear in the wall of the cocoon. After some time, he noticed that there was something inside, struggling to make its way out. Slowly, with great effort and much struggling, it pushed at the hole, until part of its body had emerged. At that point, the little boy realised, with great delight, that it was a butterfly!

Eager to assist the struggling butterfly, he ran home, entered the kitchen, found a pair of scissors, and raced back to the cocoon, cutting at the hole until he had enlarged it sufficiently. Now that the hole was bigger, the butterfly emerged with ease, tumbling out of the cocoon onto a branch below. However, there was something wrong with the butterfly.

Its wings were shrivelled, while its body was engorged and swollen. The butterfly was unable to fly and remained where it was, weak and frail.
