Wael Ibrahim shares ten tips to give up porn addiction for good.
It is a good idea to point out to those who are interested in Islam, when they find some matters difficult to understand or they find some rulings hard to accept, that Paradise is surrounded with difficulties and Hell is surrounded with desires, and that Allaah has issued His commands to His slaves in order to test them and see if they will do well. Earning the Lord’s pleasure and gaining the honour of admittance to His Paradise is not something that is easy in all aspects or something that a person can attain without any difficulty. It is not like that at all. Rather we have to be patient and strive to overcome our nafs (self), and put up with a lot of difficulties in order to please our Lord, be honoured by Him and be saved from His wrath. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):
The moment a person follows his desires, the path of sins open up. A person, who sins but then sincerely repents, is forgiven by Allah. But, in the present day world, the truth is disbelieved, and the falsehood is openly supported. If this is not misguidance then what is? Humiliation is the end of those who follow their desires in
disobedience to Allah:
“Have you seen him who takes his own lust (vain desires) as his ilaah (god)? And Allah knowing (him as such), left him astray, and sealed his hearing and his heart, and put a cover on his sight. Who then will guide him after Allah? Will you not then remember?” [Qur’an Surah Al-Jaathiyah (45): 23]
