Pornography Addiction A Rising Epidemic Afflicting Muslim Youth
With the advent of technology and the Internet, pornography has become easily accessible, with more than 68% of young men and 18% of young women viewing it at least once a week.
For many individuals, their repeated use will lead to dependence resulting in devastating consequences, including:
- Social Anxiety
- Low Motivation
- Marital Breakdown
- Suicidal Thoughts
- Negative Self-Perception
- Erectile Dysfunction
And these effects are not absent from the Muslim community.
Because of the taboo nature of pornography, it generates a lot of shame and it is incredibly difficult for an addict or their family member to find or ask for help.
"I think it can be much easier for a person addicted to drugs or an alcoholic to talk about his/her addiction than for a normal Muslim to talk about his porn/sex addiction."Yehya, A Muslim in recovery from porn addiction
Without a safe network to reach out for support or counsel, often times the only respite from pain for many addicts becomes none other than their drug.
Who We Are And What We Do
Purify Your Gaze is the first and only organization that has created a safe and anonymous platform for Muslims globally seeking support and treatment from pornography addiction.
Since 2009, we’ve been able to reach 57,000 Muslims seeking resources for recovery and we’ve been able to assist more than 2,000 in our programs.
Our 8 step Islamically-congruent therapeutic model for change empowers individuals to tackle and heal the underlying reasons that were fueling their addictive behaviors.
More importantly, it helps individuals find new and healthy ways of relating to self, to life, to others, and to God. Our alumni include artists, doctors, students of sacred knowledge, entrepreneurs, community activists, huffaadh, and wonderful fathers and mothers.
As a result of their participation in our program they have become more loving and giving.
Your Gift Will Help Bring An End To The Ugliness And Misery Of Pornography Addiction For A Muslim Youth Without The Means To Pay For Our Services
In spite of our program's affordability, we receive multiple requests a day to join from full-time students, those in between jobs, or individuals that come from countries with weak currencies.
The predicament of needing professional support for such a sensitive situation, but not being able to afford it for some can be doubly shameful, and so many in such situations do not seek out the support they need altogether.
We don't want to see that happen to anyone which is why we've launched our scholarship program.
Our vision with this scholarship program is with the Muslim community's support to further subsidize or when appropriate waive the fees altogether for our services for all clients in financial hardship.
It is our obligation as a community to give a hand to those who need our support as the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said as narrated in Sahih Muslim:
“Whoever removes a grief from a believer from amongst the sorrows of this life, Allah will remove a grief from him amongst the sorrows of the Day of Resurrection. Whoever brings ease to one in difficulty, Allah will make it easy for him in this life and the Hereafter. Whoever covers a Muslim, Allah will cover him in this life and the Hereafter. Allah is in aid of the servant so long as the servant is in aid of his brother."
We all have struggles and wounds, and we all deserve to have a safe place for support and healing.

- Weekly Support Group Sessions
