Leaving pornography and seeking repentance?

Since 4 years i have been a slave to pornography but now i realized that it's pointless. I have decided to stop watching and to pray all 5 prayers. But i'm shy to even start praying because i fear that Allah will not accept my prayers because i did bad things. I feel weird when im asking dua because of all the guilt. Now it's ramzan and in every prayer i literally beg of forgiveness but still there's a doubt in my heart whether im forgiven or not. What should i even do? Im confused a lot.. please help me brother...


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)”

The pornography is absolutely the path of shaitan through which he wants to lead mankind astry. Allah says in the glorious quran: O ye who believe! Follow not Satan's footsteps QURAN[24:21]

Dear brother, it is indeed good that you have realized, recognized and abandoned the evil habit of watching pornography. The pornography is nowadays a strong weapon of the accursed shaitan to mislead mankind.

(... And establish regular prayer for verily, prayer restrains [the worshipper] from shameful and unjust deeds...) Quran[ 29: 45]

Dear brother, Verily, the Salah prevents from immoral sins and evil wicked deeds. Ibn `Awn Al-Ansari said: "When you are praying, you are doing good, it is keeping you away from immoral sins and evil wicked deeds and what you are doing is part of the remembrance of the lord, most high.''

Dear brother, if you are ashamed of your sins and have turned back to Allah in sincere repentance, then Do not despair from the mercy of Allah! Surely, Allah forgives all sins, for Allah is Entirely Merciful and Especially Merciful.

Allah says in the glorious Quran: Say, "O My servants who have transgressed against themselves [by sinning], do not despair of the mercy of Allah. Indeed, Allah forgives all sins. Indeed, it is He who is the Forgiving, the Merciful." And return [in repentance] to your Lord and submit to Him before the punishment comes upon you; then you will not be helped.Quran[39:53-54]

Allah says in the glorious Quran: And those who, when they have committed Fahishah (illegal sexual intercourse etc.) or wronged themselves with evil, remember Allah and ask forgiveness for their sins; - and none can forgive sins but Allah - And do not persist in what (wrong) they have done, while they know. For such, the reward is Forgiveness from their Lord, and Gardens with rivers flowing underneath (Paradise), wherein they shall abide forever. How excellent is this reward for the doers (who do righteous deeds according to Allah's Orders). Quran[3:135-136]

Dear brother, you should put your trust on Allah and should never despair from his mercy. Concentrate on the acts of worship and don’t give any attention to the doubts, for doubts are from shaitan.

Narrated by Abdullah ibn Mas'ud Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "He who repents of a sin is like him who has committed no sin." Al-Tirmidhi [Hadith 2357]

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.
