It’s a word that’s taboo to say out loud in many of our communities, yet it’s responsible for psychological, spiritual, and social harms on a scale that is almost impossible to comprehend. While it is common knowledge that watching pornography is forbidden in Islam, its addictive nature makes it difficult to overcome.  What are the harms of watching this content? What are the underlying issues that cause people to turn to it, and why do they have a hard time turning away? What can we do to stop this habit before it becomes an addiction?

2022/06/01

In this episode, host Mohamad Zaoud talks to Sh. Mohammad Elshinawy, co-author of the Yaqeen Institute paper “Gender Uniqueness in Islam and the Significance of Fatherhood.” Read it here. ?

For many people, our Ramadan excitement is high at the beginning, lower near the middle, and high again toward the end.  But the question is: Where does that excitement go after Ramadan?

S3 Ep 1 - Fasting Ramadan: The 7 Rivers to the Heart with Ustadha Ieasha Prime
2022/04/06
Note: The quote Ustadha Ieasha mentions at 8:00 (“Allah says…”) is not a verse from the Qur’an, but a quote from the Israa’eeliyyaat, a narration from the people of the Book. It means that Allah (SWT) puts love and knowledge of Himself in the heart of His slave. --- In verse 183 of Surat al-Baqara, Allah says, “O believers! Fasting is prescribed for you—as it was for those before you—so perhaps you will become mindful of Allah.”  Every Ramadan is full of reminders that the purpose of fasting is to gain taqwa, meaning mindfulness of God, or God-consciousness. But how exactly does that work? What is the relationship between what our bodies physically consume and the states of our hearts? What should be mindful of throughout our fasts so we can achieve the goal Allah intends for us? In this episode, Ustadha Ieasha Prime joins the show for a special presentation about how fasting protects and cleanses the heart, followed by a personal reflection by host Mohamad Zaoud.
