Question: The questioner is saying, I have become afflicted with the [evil] habit of masturbation, [so] I ask you about the cure for it; [as] I am addicted to watching films and prohibited things.

Do guide me [to salvation from this evil habit], and may Allaah bless you?

Response: This here is the very reason – that you watch films and and look at prohibited things; keep well away from them, and [in doing so] your urge for this evil habit will cease, [just as] your sexual desire will cease.

All of this is caused by watching things of a [sexually] exciting nature, so you must keep away from such things.
