Q&A

Pornography

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.

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?

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.

Movies and Cartoons

Question:

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

Respected ‘Ulama

I was wondering, what are the spiritual and worldly harms of showing children/teens cartoons and movies etc.? Children watch cartoons such as Arthur and Wild Kratts on a daily basis, and movies such as Avengers once a week. What are the spiritual and worldly risks of these, and what are the rulings on both types of entertainment i.e. cartoons and movies?

Is it true that jinns can reside in these devices and in the movie characters and cause harm to the watchers?
