The legal status of pornography (above) and Muslim populations

Islam and pornography are not generally considered compatible by Islamic jurisprudence.


Pornography is directly opposed to the very heart of Islamic teachings, which is highlighted by Taqwa to gain a better self-control, the Sharia and the ethical principles prohibit looking at the private parts of another person.[1] This fundamentally applies equally to looking at private parts in pictures or films, it is so to increase spiritual awareness and taqwa and prepare the soul to accept Allah.[citation needed]

That opposition between this "porn-use" attitude with the "fitra" (reverence instinct toward Allah, that all humans have, whether they are aware of it or not), creates a state of tension that leads to the destruction of the soul, leading to sadness and depression, and loss of self-esteem. That is why, in Islam, pornography is seen as a fundamentally destructive force to eradicate from one's life and from society.[citation needed]

The Quran states: "Say to the believing men that they cast down their looks and guard their private parts; that is purer for them; surely Allah is Aware of what they do."[Quran 24:30]

The Quran states: "And say to the believing women that they cast down their looks and guard their private parts and do not display their ornaments except what appears thereof, and let them wear their head-coverings over their bosoms, and not display their ornaments except to their husbands ..."[Quran 24:31]

Therefore, it is stated by Islamic scholars that one can only look lustfully at the nakedness or the body of someone who is one's spouse, and if a Muslim sees someone or something that arouses them, including pornography, they should avoid looking at it. Hence, the justification for declaring pornography haram in Islam.[2][3]

The Quran states "they are an apparel for you and you are an apparel for them[.]"[Quran 2:187] "This is interpreted to mean that the sexual unison between husband and wife is more than seeking a relief from the urge of desire. Indeed the prophet taught that it is one of the charities in Islam. He said to his companions, enumerating examples of charitable deeds: 'And when the one of you makes love (has sex) it is a rewardable charity.'"[4]

Islamic economics[edit]

In Islamic economics it is completely forbidden to invest on certain industries that are considered morally dubious. Pornography industry is considered to be off-limits for investors.[5]

Internet pornography[edit]

Yasmine Lafitte is a Moroccan-French former pornographic actress who was born in a Muslim family.

While pornography is not tolerated in the Arab World, national responses for the internet pornography have varied. Saudi-Arabia, Kuwait and other Gulf states have strict filtering policies. After the Arab spring, Tunisia imposed filters for pornographic content, despite overall decrease in repressiveness of internet surveillance. Historically Egypt also had a lenient policy.[6][7][8] In contrast, Turkey has legalized pornography.[9]

Pakistani newspaper The Express Tribune reported in January 2015 that the six out of eight most porn-searching countries were Muslim countries. Pakistan was the most porn-searching country in the world, and it was also a leading country in beastiality related porn searches for various animals like donkeys, dogs and pigs. Among the top-ranking Muslim countries only Turkey had legalized pornography.[9] In 2012 Telecommunications Department of the Turkish Parliament made an estimate that 2 million Turkish online users watch pornography each minute.[10]

Only two percent of surveyed Pakistanis said in 2012 that society should accept homosexuality. Despite being a very intolerant for gays, Pakistan leads in porn searches for shemale, heterosexual anal sex and gay porn searches. These types of searches for pornographic content did not only come from major cities, but they came even from the conservative region of Peshawar. This discrepancy can be explained by the fact that even highly religious Muslim men in Pakistan have sexual encounters with men without identifying as gay. Persecution of minorities in Pakistan may have also caused gays to resort to pornography as they cannot live freely, and modern Islam is giving opposition for homosexuality. In the past Middle East, especially among Arab authors, and India were more open to discuss homosexuality than Europe, but the rise of conservative Islam has changed this.[11]

It has been identified from Google search statistics, that around the month of Ramadan, there is a yearly drop of pornography searches from various Muslim majority countries.[12]

Muslims in porn industry[edit]

Muslims have engaged in production of pornography despite the illegality of pornographic materials in the Islamic countries. Notable Muslim women who have worked as porn actors include Yasmine Lafitte, Nadia Ali and Saeeda Vorajee.[12][13][14] Vorajee is also known for acting as a prostitute in the Game of Thrones TV-series.[14]

Hijab pornography is an emerging subgenre within pornography industry. However, it has caused some heavy reactions to occur. For instance, Mia Khalifa and Nadia Ali have received death threats for wearing hijabs in their porn films.[15][13][16][17] One such movie belonging to the subgenre is Women of the Middle East.[18]
