before asking my question, i would like to mention what our religion says in brief- 1. sex is not a thing to be ashamed of. 2. it is haraam for wife to refuse her husband if he calls her to sleep with him. 3. If it is possible for a young man to marry by any means, he should marry. 4. Marriage completes half of imaan and there are many verses and hadiths which prove that sexual desire is an important part of human nature and this desire must be fufilled at regular intervals, its impossible to control. Thats why we such hadiths and verses that i mentioned above. My question is- As we live in 21st century and our marriages take place at the age of 26, 28, 30, its impossible to control this sexual desire for 8-10 years. Most of the people commit adultery. I try to follow islaam strictly with namaaz, roza etc. but its impossible for me to control watching porn and masturbate, its addictive, and as i mentioned even our islamic scriptures prove that and allow us to marry as early as possible. SO IN SUCH SITUATION OF TODAY'S MODERN WORLD, WATCHING PORN AND MASTURBATION IS HARAAM? EVEN IF ITS HARAAM, HOW TO CONTROL IT? ITS OUR BASIC DESIRE AND CANT BE CONTROLLED?

Al Salam Alaykom brother Syed. I can tell from your question, that you KNOW that such watching of porn is Haram, but you wish to justify it some way to feel less guilt. No, its haram, and you CAN control it even if you do not marry your whole life, if you want to know what Islam said about this I would gladly tell you. Regarding masturbation, Muslim scholars are divided on its being Haram or Not desired (Makrooh) or Allowed (Halah), and you can read about that if you wish I can direct you to a trusted English source. Now brother back to the main point of your question: we do not approach Islam by asking for it to change for us and for the rules to be proven inappropriate beucause you CANT; no, we approach it by saying that they are correct 100% of the time till the end of time, and that the CHALLENGE is growing HARDER as time progresses, so what can we do? You are invalid, and the Islamic teachings on watching such things is valid. You are the weak one, and not the ruling. If you wish me to help you in that direction, controlling yourself and seeing how this is 100% possible almost all the time, I would be more than willing to assist In Sha Allah. May Allah bless and guide you to His Path.
