Question

 

I am very hesitant to ask this question, as it is a very upsetting situation. The Thing is that I am addicted to viewing porn from a very early age and every time I repent, I relapse after a certain time. I tried many things, but couldn’t be successful. May Allah help me. I am about to marry inshallah in the next few months and I want to ask, should I tell my spouse about my addiction, so maybe she would be helpful in not leaving me alone and watching me more? Or should I do conceal on myself and not tell anyone.

 

 

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

 

Answer:

 

At this moment you should cover your sins and seek both professional addiction help and spiritual help. Addiction is not easy to eradicate from one’s life. You must take professional help and not expect a wife to remove your addiction. This can be detrimental to your future marriage, faith, and life.
