Fatwa No: 89458


I am suffering from a big trouble, I a Muslim and I do believe in God I pray, I went to Umrah times I am engaged now, but when I was single and younger I went out with many girls and did mistakes, now I love my fiancée but I have a big desire to follow sluts in the street and talk to them but I run away when I feel that she will go with me, I am in a struggle with myself, I have a big desire everyday to follow bad girls by car and look at then but I didn't do any mistakes after engagement, please how can I red out of this obsessive behavior?


All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger. We ask Allaah to exalt his mention as well as that of his family and all his companions.
