Praise be to Allaah.
Watching pornography is forbidden, whether a person is
married or not. The one who does that has to repent to Allaah. How can a
person watch such things with his wife and he can he permit her to watch it
too? Women are weak and are easily influenced; indeed watching such things
may lead to problems between the spouses which may end up in divorce –
Allaah forbid. Undoubtedly if a man approves of such a thing he is lacking
in gheerah (protective jealousy), which is what distinguishes a Muslim from
others, from kaafirs and duyooths (cuckolds) who approve of obscenity and
immorality in their families. Moreover, watching such material makes one
take the matter of immorality lightly and encourages promiscuity. We ask
Allaah to keep us safe and sound. Let the one who has committed such a sin
beware of the punishment of Allaah; let him hasten to repent. He should be
keen to look for anything that may help his wife to remain chaste, not for
things that will encourage immoral actions. And Allaah knows best.
