Zina - The Prohibition

"Verily, the hearing, and the sight, and the heart, of each of those ones will be questioned (by Allah).'' - The Holy Qur'an [17:36]

The acts of fornication is not merely restricted to sexual relationships but acts that can support the desires of him too are!!!

Prophet Mohammad (salaAllahu alaihi wa sallam) said:"The fornication of the two eyes is an evil glance. The fornication of the two ears is the obscene talk. The fornication of the tongue and hand is the touch and grasp. And the fornication of the two feet is the steps taken towards evil. The heart desires and longs and the private parts abide with or does contrary to it”. (Mishkat ul Masabih, Abu Dawood)

Is it not amazing how often we are reminded by our own fellow brothers and sister that some lustful talk is just a fun way to pass time with the opposite sex, seeing lustful images of models is not a major sin we are doing nothing and watching pornography atleast once is a healthier way for a private life and the most deceitful and common one, we are having an relationship with no bad intentions? Are we going to let the whispers of Shaitan beguile us?

Your eyes are a doorway to your soul 
You are warned about the poisoned arrows from shaitan, the first look is pardonable not the second!

O Allah, we supplicate to you with your greatest names of "Al-Hayyu and Al-Qayyum" to protect and safeguard our private parts from indulging in this destructive sin of zina.

To enable mankind to save himself from this heinous sin and its consequences of destruction of self, family, and society, the guidance of the Lord Most Merciful has not just simply forbidden
‘zina’, but blocked every single path that might lead one towards this great evil.

‘vain’ talk with those of the opposite sex is an act which might allow the avowed enemy of man, the Shaytaan, to lead one to this grave sin; and thus the Perfect Guidance of Islam has warned the believers to abstain from even ever approaching this evilest of paths!

For those who think that they can develop an ‘innocent’ relationship with non-mehram women, or that they can control their emotions and their desires with a women, just take a look at the command of the All-Knowing, All-Wise Lord of the Worlds to the noble companions of the Holy Prophet (saws) in the Holy Quran

Arrogance and ignorance will lead to nothing but ones own perdition! [Quran 33: 53]

Allah has blessed us to be guided aright, and how to take care of not only our physical body but that of utmost importance, the preservation of our souls!

If one trusts, the laws and commands of Allah will not be misled; any other guidance, other than that of Allah and His Messenger (saws), is being led astray.
