AsalamuAlaikum Ya Mawlana Shaykh Nazim,
Ya Mawlana Hisham, eshaykh staff! Ya Mawlana I would like to request you to pray for me to get rid of the bad act of looking at pornography and masturbating. The problem is, whenever I am alone I feel like watching such things like pornography. Then lust fills me and then I masturbate. After that I feel repentant and cry. I involve in this same act again after some days. I have tried many times to protect myself from it but nafs/shaytan make me unsuccessful all the time. That’s why I am requesting you to help me ya Mawlana. I feel very shy to tell you about my problem. It has been 2 years since I started to involve in this act. I am not 18 years old yet.
Ya Mawlana please help me. Pray for me to be a pious, practicing, good Muslim and get rid of this haram act.
Spend time in group dhikr, suhba of Mawlana, mosque and other good company. Remove internet from your room. Fast and pray Salat al-Najat before fajr. Be a fan of cold showers until you are ready to marry.
Hajj Gibril Haddad
