i have a huge huge sin. I used to watch porn a lot, i did tawba and it took some time but i was able to stop. But i wasnt able to stop masterbating. Looking at girls online and stuff led me to masterbating. This is very common in me now. I do tawba every time but i end up doing the sin again. I have heard a lot of bayans and stuff to stop. I have conplete regret in the sin every time but whenever i get the desires, i just do it again. While masterbating i know it is wrong and think i will do tauba but i just dont stop. Please help me.
In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.
MashaAllah it is encouraging to see your remorse for the sin that you are committing. This is a sign of your Iman.
However, it is necessary for you to increase your Iman to such an extent that you will be able to protect yourself from all sins.
Therefore, in order to increase your Iman, you must be in good company and exercise your Iman.
We advise that you take out 4 months and spend it in the Path of Allah in Tabligh. In these four months, you will be in the environment of Iman and you will be able to exercise your Iman which will give you the strength and celestial light of Iman InshaAllah.
If an individual has cancer, and the doctor says you must spend 4 months in the hospital, who would not agree? The disease of the heart and weak Iman is much more disastrous than cancer. Hence, our advice is to free up 4 months as soon as possible and proceed in this spiritual hospital.
Furthermore, you must exercise will power. Allah Ta’ala has kept the will power in every human being to be able to stay away from sins.
Also, kindly read the following Fatwa:
And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
