Pornography statistics are at an all time high and continue to rise!
Whilst it is true that we live in a highly desensitised world when it comes to chastity and being chaste; one of the things we really need to do to manage the situation is to put into effect steps which block any leads to the action itself.
There is a reason why Allah (swt) says: “And do not *go near* Zina (adultery) …” (Isra:32).
It’s because the root of this evil is in the steps taken. The gaze that wasn’t lowered, the wife that wasn’t appreciated, the sites that weren’t blocked, the influence of sinning friends that weren’t avoided, the technology that was not kept out of reach at night, and the fantasiszing that wasn’t stopped.
Remember, minimizing and refraining from the small evils will prevent greater evils!
Whatever your situation; it is never to late to redeem yourself and take control of your life! Start by taking care of the points mentioned above.
Also, never lose hope in the mercy of Allah! Beg him for forgiveness & have good hope in Him that He has forgiven you, and seek His assistance from Allah in beating the enemy in front of you.
May Allah forgive our past and inspire our futures. Ameen.
