A question answered by Shaikh Muhammad Salih Al-Munajjid regarding: "I am sixteen-year-old Muslim boy. I pray and fast regularly, I am straight but the problem is that I am homosexual. I first was thinking of my father, I think I became homosexual genetically. I see usually bad pictures, but I want to give up. I have never done any sex in my life. I am really afraid of God, and I always pray to him to help me. Please sir, I beg you, tell me how practically can I get rid of this nasty desire?"
