Muslim Communities Are Aware
That There’s A Problem Due To Pornography
Leaders within Muslim communities have increasingly become aware that pornography is a real problem, often mentioning the quantity of people coming to their office complaining of their own - or their spouse’s - obsession with pornography.
And we should be alarmed.
Did you know that 68% of young men and 18% of young women view pornography at least once a
For many individuals, repeated use will lead to addiction resulting in
devastating consequences, including:
- Suicidal Thoughts
- Social Anxiety
- Low Motivation
- Negative Self-Perception
- Marital Breakdown
- Erectile Dysfunction
...AWARENESS IS IMPORTANT, BUT WITHOUT EDUCATION AND RESOURCES, SINCERE INDIVIDUALS IN YOUR COMMUNITY WILL REMAIN TRAPPED, ASHAMED, AND ALONE.
Our community leaders are doing their best to help individuals struggling with pornography to change their lives. And increased spiritual practices are often recommended to help curb addiction.
However, addiction has spiritual, emotional, and psychological roots.
When a spiritual solution is attempted without considering the emotional and psychological dimensions of the problem, sadly many individuals only fall into deeper shame about their inability to stop.
Despite a lack of comprehensive solutions, we should be vocal in applauding community leaders for their courage in discussing such a sensitive topic.
And we must also affirm that advice to fear and remember Allah is essential to helping people change their lives for the better.
Making your community a safe place for healing is simply a matter of also recognizing the psychological and emotional components of addiction, and including these essential items in the discussion.
Here’s The Good News…
With a basic level of training, incredible improvements can be achieved toward making your community even safer, more compassionate, and better equipped to provide effective support to those in need.
And we’d like to help you make it happen!

Praise For Purify Your Gaze
“I have always wished for an Islamic website that would treat this issue seriously and cater to my needs. Non-muslim websites are informative to an extent, but I feel that this website really understands the cultural and religious dilemma I face. Purify Your Gaze is filling in a big gap for the Ummah – a bridge between the perfection of Islam & modern science and personal development methods that I can relate to, and implement in my life.”
A.M, Purify Your Gaze Subscriber
“Purify Your Gaze is run by a brother who I know personally and have referred people to over the years. I highly encourage anyone who is able to, to please support this very important initiative so that they continue to do the incredible work they do and help as many people in our community as possible. We are fortunate to have such a service in our community that deals directly with this problem.” Hosai Mojaddidi, Mental Health For Muslims
“Pornography – I even feel icky writing the word, but it’s a serious issue in today’s world. I recall discussing at our Islamic School if we should bring up the topic in our middle school health class. There was obvious hesitation, but when we asked the Islamic studies teachers how old were they the first time they were exposed it was 11 years old! (accidentally, but still that would’ve been 10+ years ago and in religious families). Kudos to Zeyad Ramadan and his team for stepping up and tackling this difficult issue!”Chris Abdur-Rahman Blauvelt, LaunchGood.com
