Malaysia is categorized as third world country and has received rapid growth in socioeconomic and advance technologies. The globalization makes the world become smaller and all the information could be obtained easily by clicking on the computers. World without any barriers allows cultures from other countries influence the Malaysian especially the youths. There are good and bad cultures. The social problems emerged due to bad cultures from other countries. Cultures which we do not feed into our own cultural and religious values. Most young generations cannot identify and analyze what are the good and bad things.

So, who will teach them to be good girls and boys? Who will tell them what are good and bad actions and what the effects are if they are doing the bad things?Most of the youth fulfill their free time watching television, playing play station games, surfing internet, learning and trying to use a new handset, listening to music in digital MP3 player and so on. They are fast leaner and expertise in using modern technologies. The technologies are suppose to make our life better and help us to finish our work on time.

Those websites are trying to influence our youth to be rebellious teenagers!There are several problems that is common in Malaysia that I will explain in this article.

Namely in the form of uninhibited behavior without control and obscene, sexual appetite due to impingement with the opposite sex without knowing the limits of decency.Apparently, in times past that prostitution has a connection with the worship of gods and certain religious ceremonies. Prostitution is not only tolerated, but also there are religious practices that lead to sin and lewd behavior is not different from prostitution. Prostitution is always there in all civilized countries, since time immemorial. And always be a social problem, or becomes the object of legal affairs and tradition. Further, with technological developments, industrial and human culture, prostitution is also co-evolved in various forms and levels.This is what most of the westerners think about prostitution.In the other hand,inIslam,prostitution is a form of social ills that are difficult to stop its spread.The flourishing of prostitution in Muslim countries is a paradox that we often overlook as a problem of our ummah. As prostitution is condemned and forbidden in Islam, and these women, to an extent, are marginalized and invisible in our community, many of us are not aware of the magnitude and realities of this problem.
