Giving up porn and smoking

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q:

1. I have an e-cigarette. It is like an alterative to a cigrette and I’ve got lots of different types and spent alot of money on them but I want to stop it completely. Should I throw them away and go against my nafs?

2. I am a younster with hormones and I used to make accounts to watch naked women perform acts. Each time I had the urge I’d make a new account. Should I leave the accounts and ask for forgiveness and not go back to the accounts even if the accounts are there and not getting used? Will I be sinful everyday if the accounts are not there because I don’t know how to delete them.

Bismillaah

A:

1. If you have the willpower to give it up then it is a very good idea.

2. Delete all these things, and after Esha make fresh wudhu, perform 4 rakaats of taubah namaaz, recite the kalimah at least 500 times and seriously think about death and all the events after death. Cry to Allah and beg for His forgiveness and help that He keeps you firm.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
