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)”

Narrated by Anas ibn Malik ...That he heard the Messenger of Allah (saws) say: 'The eye commits 'zina', and the palm of the hand, the foot, the body, the tongue and private part of the body confirm it or deny it.' ABU DAWOOD[Book 41 : Hadith 4886]

There is absolutely no doubt, that watching pornography is the zina of eyes. A believer should fear Allah and should abstain from watching the pornography. If one continues to transgress the limits of Allah, soon will befall the destruction on those who continue to transgress the limits of Allah.

But if one seeks sincere forgiveness for his/her transgression from lord of the worlds before one's appointment of death, he will definitely find his lord Most Merciful and oft-forgiving.

Allah says in the Quran : (O Prophet) say: "O My servants who have wronged their own souls...Do not despair of Allah's Mercy! Surely, Allah forgives all sins. He indeed is the All Forgiving, All Merciful. Return to your Lord and submit to Him before the scourge overtakes you; for then you may get no help from anywhere." QURAN[39:53-54]

Dear brother, Watching nude videos or pictures does not affect the validity of one’s ablution or wadu.

The acts that invalidate one's wudu or ablution are:

  1. Any release from one's private parts (urine, sexual emission, wet dream release, menses blood for women, stool, wind, etc.)
  2. Sexual emission.
  3. Wet dreams.
  4. Menses blood.
  5. Stool (offering call of nature).
  6. Releasing wind.
  7. Deep sleep.
  8. Sexual intercourse.

Regarding the acts mentioned below, there are a difference of opinion amoung the scholars, whether these acts invalidate wudu or not.

  1. The touching of one's private parts.
  2. The touching of women.
  3. Constant bleeding of blood from any part of the body.
  4. Vomiting.
  5. The consuming of camel meat.
  6. The washing of a deceased's body.
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.
