Answer:



بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

We begin with Allah’s blessed name, we praise him and we glorify him, seek his forgiveness and ask him to guide us. Whoever Allah guides, None can lead astray and whoever he misguides, None can guide. There is no power and no strength except from Allah, The most high, the Most great, the most powerful. We bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers. We pray for peace and blessings on all the noble messengers and in particular on the last of them all “the blessed prophet Mohammad (pbuh)”

Thank you brother for your kind words of encouragement.

Today the wide spread availability of porn material on the internet is a serious threat to our young Muslim generations; Pornography has made a serious effect on the life’s of people from all walks of life. Here in Kashmir what is more threatening is that our young Muslims are getting more and more attracted towards the pornography, which has resulted due to the negligence of their parents and also due to their lack of responsibility and lack of Islamic awareness. The parents equip their children’s with the latest technology(smart-phones etc), which expose them to the ocean of danger on the internet , as internet is the same place where they can get useful information, but the bitter truth is that There are around 420 million pornographic WebPages, which is sufficient that your child can even get accidently into it. Once a child goes into it, it is very difficult to control the obsession that it generates, and leads one to visit it again and again, and finally turns one into an addict. . Ironically while viewing porn, it creates momentarily intense pleasurable experience, it ends up leading to several negative lingering psychological experience.

Pornography has made a serious blow to the relationships particularly the martial relationship. Addiction to porn is not very different from drug addiction. A recent Cambridge study says that porn triggers the same brain activity in people as triggered by drugs. In Kashmir there are many organizations fighting the drug addiction, but strangely no one’s attention goes towards the like addiction that has gripped large number youth. Even the scholars of Islam in Kashmir have become the mute spectators. They love to fight each other on any minor issue, but when it comes to such a dangerous social issue, they love to keep silent. STRANGE

Some studies conclude that those who are obsessed with watching porn develop compulsive sexual behavior, which could lead to distress and feeling of guilt and shame.

Experts say that as one gets involved in it when one gets bored. In Kashmir, as we all very well know the large numbers of youth are unemployed, which means that they remain free for large portion of the time. The accursed shaitan avails this opportunity and whispers evil into the hearts of these young muslims, some who are strong in taqwa defeat him, but most are unable to deal with the temptations of accursed shaitan.

What the parents should do is to strictly watch the activity of their children on net or on electronic devices where the danger is open. There are many ‘net dog’ or ‘parental control’ software’s that can help parents filter contents and prevent children’s from viewing unwanted contents.

Parents should teach their children’s the teachings of Islam, and guide them on every step as per the teachings of islam. One god fearing parent would never wish that their child should go to hell; rather they would consider ‘making their child successful both in dunya and aakhira’ their sole mission. Parents should Encourage and help their children learn and practice the religion “al-Islam”, help them be God conscious, be greater in taqwa.

In contrast to that what the trend is going on in Kashmir, the parents teach their children everything that is bad and never bother to be heedful about their children. They encourage their children watching TV, wasting hours of their precious time in playing internet games, and do not bother to teach their children the teachings of the blessed religion ‘AL-ISLAM’. When such is the situation of the parents of any society, then what good can you expect, The only thing that would be promoted would be evil.

O dear brothers and sisters ,if you are blessed by almighty Allah with children’s or you are going to be parents in future, sit back and think of it seriously. And remember this, first be righteous yourself , then only can you make your child righteous. May Allah guide you and us to the right path. And Allah alone knows the best.

I ask Allah to make this a sincere effort, seeking his pleasure, and I ask him to grant us refuge in him from the evils within ourselves, and that in our deeds. I ask him to grant us success in achieving whatever pleases him; And May Allah Shower His blessings and mercy upon our beloved Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), his family and his Companions and on all those who follow him until the final hour.
