Q889: How to deal with a husband who watches porn.

Assalamu alaykum,
 I have a problem with my husband as he watches porn. its been going on for a few years from even before we were married but I never knew how to approach him regarding the matter but Alhamdulillah last week I had the courage to ask him, at first he denied it but eventually admitted he does. I am so stuck and I need help as to how I can help him stay away from this.
Jazakallah

Answer: 
Wa ‘Alaykumussalaam wa rahmatullah,
It is great to see the care you have for your husband. May Allah increase your love amongst one other. 
In reference to your question, it is important that you support your husband in helping him leave this habit. Do not rebuke him or look down upon him, as this will make matters hard for both of you. 
Rather, try to encourage him to do taubah and repent sincerely. Read to him the verses of tawbah, give him something to read or some bayan to listen to on the Internet.
Read after evey fardh Salah: 300x ya Rasheedu ya Haadi, and then raise your hands and make dua for him. 
Allah Ta’ala Mentions in the Qur’an:
هن لباس لكم و انتم لباس لهن
‘The wives are a means of covering up for the husbands as the husbands are for their wives’
It is vital for the relationship between and husband and wife to have an understanding and the will to help one another in their times of need. 
May Allah make it easy for you and accept your efforts! Ameen.
