How Should I Deal With My Addiction to Prostitutes?

Hanafi Fiqh

Answered by Ustadh Tabraze Azam

Question: As salam alaykum,

I have a strong addiction to prostitutes. How should I deal with that?

Answer: Wa alaikum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,

I pray that this message finds you well, insha’Allah.

You should repent to Allah Most High, and then supplicate to Him asking that the difficulty be removed out of His Pure Grace.

This is a trial for you, and the sign of success is in steadfastness in upholding the limits of the Sacred Law, and using it as an opportunity to seek Allah Most High.

With that, continue to attend circles of learning and remembrance, and look for righteous company, striving to always remain occupied in the good.

If you don’t busy yourself with the good, it will busy you with bad.
