Faith Fridays - Exposing Pornography by Sheikh Yassir Fazaga [VIDEO]

Every Friday we hope to bring you a khutbah or short lecture in English that we feel may be of benefit to you. Think of it as a weekly khutbah from a different perspective. All you need to do is spend 30 minutes (or less) a week to learn something new.

If you have any suggestions on a video that we should share please send us an email via "Write for Us".

Jummah Mubarak!

We live in a world where we are continually bombarded with sexualised images. From the television to the internet, sometimes even radio shows insinuate sexuality. And then there's pornography. It is everywhere, you can't escape lewd images wherever you go.

Pornography is an industry that preys on human beings' weaknesses. There are many people out there who suffer from pornography addiction in silence. Yet because it is a sensitive topic we shy away from even talking about it.

Imagine then when an imam decides that pornography should be the topic of his Friday khutbah. Surprised? You shouldn't be. The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) was never one to shy away from discussing issues that were relevant to the community even if they were deemed to be sensitive.

Watch as Sheikh Yassir Fazaga not only talks about the destruction pornography brings but presents solutions to those who are currently affected by it (whether you are an addict or you are friends with an addict), and most importantly what we can do to protect ourselves and our children from it.
