A Person Who Allows Lewd Magazines To Enter His Home

What is the ruling regarding a person who allows lewd magazines, which contain unlawful pictures and deviant messages, to enter his home?

A Muslim is not permitted to bring magazines and books that are contrary to Islamic beliefs and that corrupt Islamic precepts and manners into his home. The senior of the house is responsible for himself as well as for his family; the Prophet (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) said: A man is shepherd in his home, and he is responsible for his herd. [1] May Allaah send peace and blessings upon Muhammad, his family, and his Companions.

[1] Al-Bukhari no. 893 and Muslim no. 1829.
