Paging through this booklet directed to those suffering from pornographic addiction I feel that Br Wael Ibrahim has covered some very important aspects of the problem at hand with realistic suggested remedies. Though explicit at times, the direct approach will appeal to the youth of this age, many of whom, too embarrassed to reach out for help, prefer to suffer in silence. Br Wael has stretched out his hand to let those who need help not delay.
May Allah Almighty accept this contribution to the Ummah. Aameen

Praise be to Allah and peace and blessing be upon His messenger.
I truly appreciate this kind of work which is needed badly nowadays.
No doubt that one of the worst disasters the entire world is suffering from in our era is pornography. A disease which hardly skips any community or house, with that rises the urgent need to counter attack this catastrophe. I found by the grace of Allah in this smart booklet the practical steps to overcome this evil habit which turned in many cases to sort of addiction.
We need to propagate the message in this booklet to help more and more afflicted people to recover .
We are in constant struggle against all sorts of evil especially pornography, the good news is that Allah says in the last verse of Surat Al ‘Ankaboot:
وَالَّذِينَ جَاهَدُوا فِينَا لَنَهْدِيَنَّهُمْ سُبُلَنَا وَإِنَّ اللَّهَ لَمَعَ الْمُحْسِنِين
And those who strive for Us – We will surely guide them to Our ways. And indeed, Allah is with the doers of good. Qur’an 29:69
May Allah bless brother Wael and those who help spreading this message.
All praise is due to Allah, and may He extol and send blessings upon His final messenger Muhammad PBUH.
“Change” is for those longing to get close to Allah. A positive, uplifting booklet that injects hope into those despondent. Filled with well researched psychological strategies proven to assist in breaking bad habits and overcoming addictions.
A lantern that radiates optimism and an offer of help to those temporary defeated by the Shaytan/Satan. Everyone of the thirty entries in this booklet is a step towards Allah. The readers will find themselves constantly walking towards Allah. And when we walk towards Him He rushes towards us. In these pages is the invariable nature of becoming a friend of Allah and an enemy of the Shaytan.I ask Allah to accept and bring benefit through this work, and to assist and forgive those afflicted.
Pornography is a dehumanizing social issue that many find a taboo subject to address.
The reality is that the subject has an industry with fluid distribution channels for it’s content, and is consuming people across various spectrum’s of society into addiction. It is for this reason that Wael Ibrahim’s treatise titled: ‘CHANGE’ is a brave and magnanimous contribution to the field of development. I call it a treatise because it’s more than just a book. It’s a ‘companion’ and ‘calling’ and talks to you and not at you. A lot of literature today focuses on the ‘what’ with very little emphasis on the ‘why’ and ‘how’. ‘CHANGE’ definitely invites towards the revival and rejuvenation of ‘purpose’ and ‘self’ and is a publication I have had the honour of adding to my library and will be sharing with many.
May God Almighty shower upon us all a beautiful guidance. Ameen.
Brother Wael Ibrahim, one of my favorite public speakers who always knows how to intrigue audience’s curiosity and interests by his witty speech. Reading his booklet, “Change” is a unique enrichment for our minds and souls as his words are not only full of wisdom, but are filled with practicability encouraging us to reflect on ourselves from scratch to enlightenment. The highlight of this booklet is the integration of his personal views into Islamic practice based upon Quranic guidelines. It has been scarce nowadays to enjoy reading as a spiritual journey, whereas, the leverage of this booklet will etch on readers’ minds remarkably.

As a student of the Qur’an, I am very pleased and happy to find a book that revolves and evolves within the words of the Qur’an. I love how Brother Wael based all of his words and advises upon the Qur’an and sunnah. The booklet truly takes you into a sense of one on one session unto battling one of the most distractive drugs these days – pornography. It’s precise but powerful, short yet soul striking.
May this book serve its purpose successfully, encourage souls and become a tool for one to change for their own good and betterment. Amin.
