Watching filthy videos on the Internet

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I am 21 years old. I am very addicted to watching gay sex on the net as well as other sex videos. I repent after watching it. I did not wish to watch it again but then I can’t control…. again I start watching. Please help me. I want to stop this sin forever. What should I do? And whenever I see handsome boys, I have feelings to make sexual relationship with them. I am am ashamed of my bad thoughts as well as watching gay sex on the internet. What should I do?


A: In order for one to be successful or achieve any goal in life (whether worldly or Deeni related), one is required to show determination and courage. Without determination and the necessary effort one will not succeed in reaching his goal. Consider the evil consequences in the grave as well as in the hereafter on account of committing such detestable deeds. It appears in the Hadith that in the manner a person leads his life that is how he will pass away and leave this world, and the manner he passes away he will be resurrected on the day of Qiyaamah. Imagine being resurrected on the day of qiyaamah with those dirty and filthy people one enjoyed viewing! Make sincere tawbah and attend the programmes and gatherings of the pious. May Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) assist you in reforming your life.

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