HOW TO GET RID OF THE ADDICTION OF WATCHING MOVIES

Praise be to Allah.

The ways in which you can give up watching movies: you can achieve that by means of several things that were mentioned by the scholars and educators, such as the following:

1) Bearing in mind that Allah, may He be exalted, is always watching and that He knows what is secret and is even more hidden. One of the early generation was asked about what they did that help them to lower their gaze and refrain from looking at haraam things. He said: By knowing that Allah sees you more quickly than you see what you are looking at.

2). Righteous friends who will remind you if you forget and alert you if you are heedless. They are close friends who love one another for the sake of Allah and you are brought together in obedience to Allah, may He be exalted. Allah says (interpretation of the meaning): “Friends on that Day will be foes one to another, save those who kept their duty (to Allah)” [al-Zukhruf 43:67]. That is the good companion whom the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) likened to the bearer of musk. It was narrated that Abu Moosa al-Ash‘ari (may Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “The likeness of a good companion and a bad companion is that of one who carries musk and one who works the bellows. With the carrier of musk, either he will give you some or you will buy some from him, or you will notice a good smell from him; as for the one who works the bellows, either he will burn your clothes or you will notice a bad smell from him.”
3) Keeping yourself busy with things will benefit you in religious and worldly terms. You should have a daily wird that you recite; memorize the Book of Allah; study some books by the scholars or listen to them, and busy yourself with things that are beneficial and serve the people and society.

4) Marriage, which is what the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) recommended to help lower their gaze and guard chastity, as he said: “O young men, whoever among you can afford it, let him get married, for it is more effective in lowering the gaze and guarding one’s chastity. And whoever cannot afford it, let him fast, for it will be a shield for him.” Narrated by al-Bukhaari (4779) and Muslim (1400).

5) Always asking Allah to help you, guide you and purify your hearing and sight. The best thing that a person can do to rid himself of evil inclinations after taking the proper measures is to turn to his Lord and ask Him to help him with that, to make things easy for him and to purify his physical faculties.

We ask Allah to enable you to do that which He loves and that pleases Him.

And Allah knows best

SEX BEFORE MARRIAGE AND ITS CONSEQUENCES.

In the name of Allah, most compassionate and most merciful. “From among the signs of the Hour (end of time) are that religious knowledge will be taken away (by the death of religious scholars), ignorance will prevail, drinking of alcoholic drinks, and there will be a prevalence of Zina.” – Prophet (saw) We begin our topic with these words of our beloved Prophet. How true were his words? We live in a world where all these things are prevalent and unfortunately in our Muslim community as well. Many of our Muslim brothers and sisters are trapped in the evil of Zina and it has become a norm for them, as a result they don’t even consider it haram and unlawful. Allah says in holy Quran: Sūrah al-Isrā’, 17:32: “And do not even approach zina, for it is an outrageous act, and an evil way…’’ We are not going into detail about why Zina is unlawful but in this article, you will find the consequences of this sin. How this affects a life of a person physically, mentally, spiritually and so

THE MAN WHO INSPIRE MILLIONS OF MUSLIMS EVEN WHEN HE IS PASSED AWAY (ALI BANAT)

Ali Banat is a sydney born who was diagnosed with Cancer and doctors have given him only 7 months to live. Despite his circumstances, he considers this a gift from Allah. Ali Banat, is a young man who, in his own words, was “gifted” with a stage 4 cancer throughout his body. He was given just a few months to live but took this great test as an opportunity to change his life. Upon receiving this news he immediately sold his business, gave up his lavish lifestyle and prized possessions and began a new mission to give up his Dunya and work for his Akhira. Ali has humbly dedicated the remainder of his life to helping those who are far less fortunate than him and in doing so, set up the charity MATW Project (Muslims Around The World) which has already changed the lives of so many. Being diagnosed with cancer is like death sentence for many. But this is not the way Australian Muslim Ali Ali Banat sees it.
