Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh welcome everyone to prophetic recovery where we discuss narrations, authentic variations from the life of the prophet Muhammad wa sallam. If we follow today in sha Allah definitely, definitely definitely we will live a life of sobriety and this is specifically for those who are addicted to pornography or any undesirable sexual activities. Today's narration is in Sahih Muslim Andrea inop The larger your nom de la may Allah be pleased with him.

and I see images that are not so pleasant. Sometimes they attract our sexual attention. What do I do if I look accidentally and I saw something haram, the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam responded for Mr. Rouhani he commanded me and asked if basally to divert my gaze to the other direction. So two things we learn here number one is the obvious command of the Quran, where Allah subhanaw taala told us to lower our gaze immediately when we see something haram Khalil Nina, Dolman are beside him while follow through Jehan dai indicates that when you lower your gaze immediately you will protect your private part tell to the believing men and another ayah that follows.

But the other point in here is that the Prophet SAW Selim said for Amarante, he commanded me so it's not an optional thing for the believers to choose from. It's a command which means you must obey that command of the Prophet Thomas asana and if you obey the command of the processor in lowering your gaze when you see something haram then in sha Allah to Allah, you will be on the road to recovery. But be careful this hadith talks about accidental look, it's not talking

about visiting websites intentionally going through all these images, tons of images intentionally masturbating to pornography intentionally and then at the end you say okay, I will lower my gaze. No, we are talking about accidental look, and that from from the beginning will help you to chart a lot and live a life of sobriety. So may Allah subhanaw taala protect us and by the way, that doesn't mean that those who visited websites and are already addicted, I've got no solutions and that we're Academy always help people so seek is the far from Allah seek tilba from Allah subhanaw taala and reach out for help. If you cannot get rid of pornography on your own. May Allah protect us all. See
