Protection is the best prevention


Allah told us in the Quran that we shouldn’t even be near to (sinna) or unlawful sex whether we know the person that we are having sex with or not.


Remember the Hadith of the prophet Mohamed Aleihi Salam:

“O youths whoever can afford should get marry, if you can’t then you should fast, because it lower your gaze and reduce your sexual desire”


Please and please brothers and sisters don’t loose your life for 3 minutes. I guess you know what I mean.


I have seen a healthy looking Somali bro and sisters who are (HIV) positive. They are with us, among us with a mission that is to spreading the desease for whatever reason.
