Harms and consequences of pornography and masturbation

Q: Mention the harms and consequences of pornography and masturbation.

A: The greatest is that it is haraam, and when one persists in haraam then at times he loses greater favours of Allah Ta`ala in this life and he could be destroying his life in the Hereafter. Many are the cases where the marital life has been rocked on account of these types of practices. Fights, disputes and disagreements carry on and in most cases this moves on to their innocent children as well.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
