Wise Sayings, Interesting Events & Moral Lessons from the Islamic History
Compiled by : Abdul-Malik Mujahid | DARUSSALAM
It is not permissible to watch pornography at all, not even with one’s wife.
Pornography is prohibited in islam. How big a sin is “watching” pornographic material with your wife once in a while?
Watching pornography is forbidden, whether a person is married or not. The one who does that has to repent to Allaah. How can a person watch such things with his wife and he can he permit her to watch it too?
Women are weak and are easily influenced; indeed watching such things may lead to problems between the spouses which may end up in divorce – Allaah forbid.
Undoubtedly if a man approves of such a thing he is lacking in gheerah (protective jealousy), which is what distinguishes a Muslim from others, from kaafirs and duyooths (cuckolds) who approve of obscenity and immorality in their families.
Moreover, watching such material makes one take the matter of immorality lightly and encourages promiscuity.
We ask Allaah to keep us safe and sound.
- Let the one who has committed such a sin beware of the punishment of Allaah; let him hasten to repent.
- He should be keen to look for anything that may help his wife to remain chaste, not for things that will encourage immoral actions. And Allaah knows best.

May You All Be Honeyed By Allāh !!
عسلكم الله جميعاً
قال رسول اللهﷺ : إذا أحب اللّه عبداً عسله ، قالوا : ما عسله؟ قال : يفتح الله عز وجل له عملاً صالحاً قبل موته ثم يقبضه عليه.
The Messenger of Allāh ﷺ said: “If Allāh loves a person, he is honeyed by Him, they asked: ‘What is honeying him (means)?’, he said: “Allāh opens for him (the door of) a righteous deed before his death, then keeps him firm on it (until his death).”
● [ رواه أحمد ١٧٨١٩]
قال العلامة الألباني رحمه الله : وأمارة هذا التعسيل بأن يرضى عنه من حوله لما ثبت في زيادة مرفوعة للنبي صلى اللّه عليه وسلم : (.. حتى يرضى عنه من حوله) ، يقال بأن الشيخ الألباني رحمه الله يدعوا لمن صنع إليه معروفا بقوله: ( عسّلك الله ).
al-‘Allāmah al-Albāni Raḥimahullāh said: “And the sign of this honeying is that everyone around him become pleased with him as is proven in addition from Prophet ﷺ saying in Marfū’ form: ’.. until (everyone) from around him are pleased with him.’ • [الصحيحة ١١١٤],
It is said that Sh. al-Albānī (Allāh have mercy upon him) used to supplicate for the one who did a favor to him by saying: ‘May you be honeyed by Allāh’.”
