How a Muslim should fight the harmful influences of Western movies, shows and music

Hello. Do you have any advice for someone who is struggling with faith? I am a Muslim Arab girl, but being constantly exposed to western movies, shows, music and their general detachment from God and religion is really starting to shake my faith. Please help.


Your faith will only be as strong as the amount of work that you put in it. I recommend dedicating a certain amount of time daily to reading the Quran (I recommend an hour for those who are able). If you do not dedicate time to worship and remembrance of God, you will invariably feel distant from God and go under harmful influences. But if you hold tight to the Quran and dedicate time to it daily, then you will be able to easily overcome harmful influences.

Best wishes.
