It’s hard, especially when you’re a teenager and bombarded with images of sexuality:that hot-looking scantily clad guy or gal in the magazine, grinning at you and luring you;or the persistent emphasis on sex in the movies (even Toy Story!); or the pervasive linksto pornography and ad banners that pop up while you may simply be checking your e-mailor researching something for school. How does a young Muslim protect him or herself fromall of this? Below are some tips that can help:Tip 1.Know what is Halal (lawful) and what’s notWe may think only hard core pornography is Islamically unacceptable. This is not true.Improperly dressed men and women, sexual situations, foreplay, kissing, touching, dirty jokes: none of these are Islamically acceptable. Talk to a trusted Muslim friend, familymember of the same gender or an Imam about this. Bring it up and ask them to give youthe Islamic perspective.Tip 2. Remember your accountability to AllahIn America and some other countries, you’re fully responsible for your actions when youturn 18. In Islam, you’re fully accountable as soon as you understand these things. Sothat means that from that point onwards, you cannot assume looking at this stuff is nobig deal. Your eyes will testify about what you looked at on the Day of Judgment.Remember that Allah is always watching. He is Most Just and Merciful, and He rewards usfor the good and punishes us for the bad we do.Tip 3. Become conscious of the Haram (unlawful)Too often, it’s easy to dismiss that billboard with the spandex-and-bikini-top-clad blondegirl advertising gum, or the guy in tight leather pants and no shirt advertising perfume.When you see it, remember the Islamic perspective, your accountability to Allah, andlower your gaze. Do the same for television and the internet. If you keep doing this,insha-Allah, it’ll become a habit, and eventually an automatic reaction.Tip 4. If feeling overwhelmed, remember AllahIn situations where you feel overwhelmed and can’t get yourself to switch the channel,close the browser window or turn your eyes away from the billboard, ask Allah’s help. Youdon’t necessarily need any heavy duty, long Dua's. "La hawla wa la quwwata illa billah"(there is no power or ability except with Allah) is short, simple, and reminds you who isreally in control and can help you out of this.Tip 5. Seek refuge in Allah from ShaitanShaitan lured you into this mess. Seeking refuge in Allah (saying awthu/awoozoo billahiminash Shaitan ir rajeem), will help you resist him and his whisperings to continue lookingat the material.Tip 6. Get up and leaveIf you feel unable to control looking at the screen or the magazine, leave the situation.Get out of the living room, your bedroom where the internet is, or where you’ve beenreading the magazine. Take a walk. Just do something to physically get out of thesituation.
