Comment:Brothers and sisters, if you have been struggling with giving up addiction to porgnography, or any other addiction for that matter, might I reccomend the use of hypnotherapy as a means of cure. As a student of psychology, I have found in my own research that this is the most effective cure for addiction. The process will take less than fifteen minutes and is guaranteed to work with most people; it worked with myself when nothing else would after so many years of failure.
If you do choose to seek out a hypnotherapist, PLEASE make sure you go to someone who is genuinely qualified. Just because they're in the Yellow Pages, it does not mean that they are at all qualified, and improper practice of hypnosis can sometimes have unwanted effects.
There's a wealth of information on the internet which you can research, dismissing popular myths about hypnosis and so on.

Comment:Salam ou Allikum, There is INTENSE difficulty with trying to quit this rotten, life destroying addiction. Im sick and tired of failing, this takes so very long and its mind numbing. I dont even think quitting cigarettes was this difficult. The 12 step method requires much courage and you need to BEG Allah from the deepest depths of your heart for help and forgiveness. We must keep trying our hardest to vere away from the shaytan. Never give up, fight the oppression of the shaytan the way Allah teaches us to.

Comment:Pornography is addictive. If you purposely start for pleasure, stop. Don't go on the computer. You MUST stop it before it starts. I'm sorry to say that I have intentionally looked up porn, but when I see how deep in people get, it encouraged me to stop. I'm so glad I saw this article in SoundVision or maybe I would have ended up deeper in that I could have imaged.

Comment:Excellent tips to fight this filth. A few things i would like to add:
1. Pray Tahajjud. This is EXTREMELY powerful in fighinting one's desires. Get up at 2-3' O'clock and pray 4 or 8 rakahs and make duaa when you are in sajadah for Allah swt says (inregard to this night prayer): Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah's Apostle (p.b.u.h) said, "Our Lord, the Blessed, the Superior, comes every night down on the nearest Heaven to us when the last third of the night remains, saying: "Is there anyone to invoke Me, so that I may respond to invocation? Is there anyone to ask Me, so that I may grant him his request? Is there anyone seeking My forgiveness, so that I may forgive him?"
Allah swt is saying ASK ME SO THAT I WILL GIVE YOU!! and with asking comes patience!! Just because you ask Allah swt for a night or two (or maybe even a week) and you still have problems with porn, dont think Allah hasnt heard your prayer or has decided not to answer!! Patience!! It may take weeks, months, and maybe Even YEARS but Allah WILL answer your prayer!! Patience and sincerity (one REALLY REALLY from his heart wants to give this act up) and InshAllah will grant protection from this act. Also, one has to be consistent. One cant just pray night prayer for 3-4 weeks and say "im not seeing any results." Once one starts night prayer he should not stop. Consistency is the Key and Patience and Sincerity are the door which the key fits in!! I'm not saying this from myself, just look at the hadith: Allah swt is himself saying that he will answer your du'aa. and who is more Just than Allah? Who is more truthful to his promise than Allah? None.
2. Set up a daily dhikr routine. Write down what words and du'aa's you're going to say and sit down for about 20-40 (more if you like) and say these words, and be consistent. Dhikr is very hard in the beginning. It is very hard to keep your mind free of thoughts and temptations but stick to it and You Will See results InshAllah! Give it a go for at least a month without missing a SINGLE DAY and you will become closer to Allah swt InshAllah.
Just wanted to add these two tips as i thought they are extremely powerful in fighting this addiction. I conclude by praising Allah swt and by asking him to guide us all and make us among the Dwellers of Jannatul Firdaus with Rasullullah (saw).

Comment:Pornography addiction plagued me from the age of 12 to the age of 21. I have now, thanks to meditation and prayer - started to cure my addiction; but with a lot of pain and struggle. If you become addicted to lust, it can not only destroy your mind but can actually affect your physical health. I lost so much weight from my addiction, because i would have much more desire for sexual excitement than the basic desire to eat food. I also developed a vascular condition from the emotional damage it caused - mainly because it replaced all my friends and my hobbies and took over my life. Such utter filth like this is a reflection of the sickness that man is in, and that the need to love God in existence (which is woman) is paramount - rather than lust after her selfishly.

Comment:ASslamualaikum, I am still battling with this addiction for a long time, I didn't know there were other Muslims who had the same problem as me, Inshallah Allahswt will reward us if we can put the 12 steps into Practice, It may not be easy, This addiction has caused me such grief and pain that I was ashamed to call myself a Muslim. I ask Allahswt with all his name to shower down his mercy on us and make it easier for us to stop the addiction and shaytaan whispers to committing this act of shame over and over again. Inshallah let's be closer To Allahswt by practicing which is good and prevent what is evil AMEEN.

Comment:alhandulillah, this addresses an issue that was needed to be discused. living in the land of kuf, we are surounded and thronged by haram daily. in america there are muslims that own liquor stores and sell haram; tainting our image as muslims. advertisements and signs, even commercials are drawing our attentions to sex. our young children are being forced to want to live like the kafr thru negative influence. if we have a legit business, many og our customers are not legit and respectful, as they dress prvokative and nasty. making it harder to lower our gaze. inshiallah this article served its purpose. i am a muslim that has gone trhu countless transformations until i came to the true understanding of islam, that being on the path of the qur'an and sunnah. comming from christianity to al-islam by way of so many bidah organizations and sects that claimed to be muslim, but yet failed to adhere to islamic fiqh, i was lost. and sex/porn was my taguut. as a new muslim years ago i did not have a support system. i still drank and smoked weed. it became harder to repent and serve god. inshiallah we will all submit wholeheartedly and be saved. as-salaam-u alaikum.
