One of the most pressing issues facing young Muslims is the easy access to free and infinite amount of pornography. Internet, music video’s and movies makes it more prominent and almost gives you the ideology that is acceptable in our times today. Regardless, it is a very important issue and one of the most popular trends amongst Muslim males.
THE ISLAMIC PERSPECTIVE
There are 2 clear issues: the first is the religious impermissibility of viewing pornography, and the second is the neurological implications sustained pornography use can have. The Qur’an (24:30) states “Tell the believing men to lower their gaze and guard their private parts, for that is purer for them. God is fully aware of what you do.”
