Father watching indecent videos

Question ID: 26569

Assalamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakaatuh Hadrat Mufti Saheb

I was using my fathers iPad today and came across six or seven lesbian porn videos on the internet that he has watched. I was completely disgusted.

[My father is 52 years old and I am 19.]

(1) In addition to making Du’a, I am unsure what else to do in this situation. I feel totally against exposing him even subtly as this may cause complete turmoil in the family with my mother. Hadhrat Mufti Saheb, please advise in this sad situation.

(2) Without his knowledge, can I change some settings on his iPad that will make the internet connection slower or even inactive at times? Perhaps he will become frustrated at the “broken iPad” and leave out the porn.

Jazakallah Khair Hadhrat Mufti Saheb.

1) Talk to a trustworthy local Aalim. Request him to diplomatically talk to your father.

2) If possible, make the iPad inactive.

Make Du'aa for him. Try to e-mail him literature on modesty, Hijaab, and photography in Islaam.
