  7. "In Shiite jurisprudence it is unlawful for a master of a female slave to grant a third party the use of her for sexual relations. The Shiite scholar Shaykh al-Tusi stated:ولا يجوز إعارتها للاستمتاع بها لأن البضع لا يستباح بالإعارة "It is not permissible to loan (the slave girl) for enjoyment purpose, because sexual intercourse cannot be legitimate through loaning"[65] and the Shiite scholars al-Muhaqiq al-Kurki, Allamah al-Hilli and Ali Asghar Merwarid made the following ruling: ولا تجوز استعارة الجواري للاستمتاع "It is not permissible to loan the slave girl for the purpose of sexual intercourse"[66] Shaykh al-Tusi stated in Al-Mabsut, Volume 3 page 57 Jump up^ al-Muhaqiq al-Kurki in Jame'a al-Maqasid, Volume 6 page 62, Allamah al-Hilli in Al-Tadkira, Volume 2 page 210 and Ali Asghar Merwarid in Al-Yanabi al-Fiqhya, Volume 17 page 187 Source: Wikipedia
  8. I seek Allah (swt)'s protection from shaytan. Salams brother, Some very good advice has already been provided. I would definitely try to implement it. I would like to comment further: - You mentioned how you have the urge to watch, yet you cover the image your hand. This in itself is laying the ground work for sexual addiction. You may brain feeds off of this. You build up excitement which is in the form of dopamine release, a pleasure neurotransmitter. It is only a matter of time before you will go through with the entire experience (God forbid). My advice, re-train your brain. It is possible to develop pleasure in other activities. There is a course dedicated to controlling porn addiction: http://www.nofapacademy.com/ Salman
  9. Inshallah brother.
  10. Uncle watches porn....

    Salam, Porn addiction is like drug adduction and like drug addiction there needs to be rehab. There is excess dopamine release with the viewing of such images/videos such that in its absence the mind enters a state of extreme depravation and withdrawal. Check out the science behind porn addiction: https://yourbrainonporn.com/ I am not a betting person, I would bet a 100% that your uncle is extremely ashamed of his actions. To successfully overcome this addiction he needs to re-wire his brain from the image-arousal-dopamine cycle. If you aren't aware already, there is a course out there that has been created by ex-porn addicts. Here is the approach many have taken to successfully quit porn https://www.nofap.com/rebooting/ Here is the actual course https://www.nofapacademy.com/ You need to have a non-judegmental conversation with him. Let him know that there is a cure and it is acombination of dua and effort. Salman
  11. Salams, Wow! Thanks for sharing. I always (still) cringe when they force us to work us in groups and interact with each other, rather than naturally let it happen. My biggest pet peeve is that at every orientation they make us take turns and introduce ourselves, tell something interesting about us, etc :-)
  12. I need the most powerful dua

    Salam dear brother, Read Dua Jawshan Kabeer with the translation and reflect on the meanings of the dua. If Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì wills, your hajat will be granted. http://www.duas.org/joshkabiralt.htm Salman
  13. Salam, I am currently studying for my second year medicine boards here in the US. As you know, that it is practically very difficult to study for boards and do well on them in a state of fast. A small 1-3 hr exam is a different story. We are talking about an 8 hour exam here. So I was told that fasting would result in undue hardship then I am exempted from fasting, provided that I make the fasts up a later time (within the year. I am presuming) The aalim is Shaykh Amin Rastani and you can look him up on facebook. Hope that helped
  14. It's truly sad we don't get to hear his side of the story. Salman
  15. Salam, Have the Shia ulema of Pakistan said anything on this matter? Any aalim or representative? Salman
