Ustadha Raidah deals with a question from a man who is struggling with an addiction to pornography, trying to overcome it despite several relapses and is wondering how much he needs to disclose to a future wife. She speaks about the process of finding a spouse, and how much one needs to tell them whether it be an addiction, an illness, or a past trauma. She also speaks about what makes a happy and strong relationship; the commitment to stand by each other despite challenges, rather than to run away at every obstacle.

Abuse. Financial confusion. Addiction. Toxic relationships. Not to mention family and marriage problems. Our communities are filled with these issues and lack a compassionate solution grounded in the wisdom of the Islamic tradition. Ustadha Raidah Shah Idil, a counselor, chaplain, and author, answers your questions every week helping you get to the bottom of things with wisdom and compassion.
