Reading fatwas in the toilet

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I used to read the Quran, fatwa webistes where Allah’s Name was mentioned in the toilet. Sometimes I also cannot control myself and use the same cellphone that I learn about Islam to watch pornography. I read fatwas today that warns against both scenarios and I am afraid if I disbelieved due to those behaviours. More so, after reading that fatwa, which in fact also happened in toilet, I did not stop immediately and continued to read other fatwas to confirm if that fatwa is correct or not. I am frightened now and did I disbelieve and what should I do?


A: It is not disbelief. However this type of behaviour is extremely dangerous. Make sincere taubah and promise Allah that you will never return to this.

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