    As all of us know, fitnah (temptation) is rampant all over the place nowadays; therefore, the best way of avoiding it is to get married as soon as possible.

    This is based on the Prophetic hadith “O young people, whoever reaches adulthood or becomes able to get married, he should do so, thus it would protect him. But for those who are not able to do so, they should keep fasting (Mondays and Thursdays); thus fasting would protect them.”

    In this regard, I am of the opinion that marriage is a great help for the youth who want to avoid fitnah. In addition to this, one needs to lower one’s gaze as required by the Qur’an in Surat An-Nur 24:30–31. This gesture is also a great help in terms of avoiding fitnah.

    Finally, the youth should remember the Prophetic du`aa’ (supplication) that he gave one day to a young man who couldn’t refrain himself from adultery. He (peace and blessings be upon him) prayed for him by saying, “O Allah! help him to be chaste, purify his heart, and forgive his sins.”

    Accordingly, it is strongly recommended for the Muslim young man who is faced with temptation to repeat this du`aa’ all the time by saying, “O Allah! help me to be chaste, purify my heart, and forgive my sins.”

    I am sure that the youth should do their best to busy themselves in doing good and useful deeds. They should avoid having more free time or having too much interaction with the opposite ***.

    Furthermore, they should always have friends who would help them to fill their time in a proper manner. From the depth of my heart, I pray to Allah to protect the Muslim youth and guide them in their vacation and summer camps. I wish them all an excellent and fruitful vacation!

    Nice article al-awadi, & I totally agree with what u hv said
    especially what u wrote in ur other article Summer Activities for Youth that is what exactly youth need these days since marrige nowadays is not as easy as it was.
    So i guess the best thing is to keep there mind busy with useful stuff, although i'm afraid that this solution will not last for along time.

    Thank you:)
