Among the causes of a plague is the prevalence of zina. When this filth becomes widespread, it becomes a cause for a plague. In this era both Muslims and non-Muslims indulge in fornication and adultery flagrantly and blatantly. In fact, zina and deeds of satanic perversion have acquired acceptance and even respect.

Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said:

“When faahishah (zina, homosexuality and immorality of all kinds) become rampant, then plagues and such diseases will afflict the people, of which their forefathers had not heard.”

The planet earth is rotten with fornication, adultery, homosexuality, lesbianism and other satanic varieties of sexual perversion. Almost every Muslim indulges in cellphone zina. Indulgence in cellphone pornography is filth in which even ‘scholars’, molvis and sheikhs indulge.

Those who indulge in these cesspools of filth and moral inequity appear to be atheists. It is not possible for a true Mu’min to become addicted to such rot and filth. While a sin can be committed in a moment of ignorance and nafsaaniyat, a Mu’min does not become an addict of immorality nor does he pre-plan sin.

Remember that Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said that when a person indulges in zina, his Imaam exits from his body and remains suspended. Should any one of the fornicators perish in the act, he dies without Imaan. This applies to even cellphone zina.

In terms of the Aakhirat, zina of the eyes, zina of the ears, zina of the tongue, zina of the mind and heart are also actual zina, i.e. the actual act of adultery. The punishment in the Aakhirat will be the same.

It is not surprising if the current epidemic is the consequence of the planet submerged in the filth of fornication, adultery, sexual perversion and the like.

Kindly peruse this ruling. It appears from this ruling that there is leeway for the permissibility of IVF. Is this correct? Is artificial insemination permissible at any time?


Choosing the gender of a child with IVF – Is it Halaal?


“Can I make use of a type of IVF where a couple can choose the gender e.g. boy or girl, is this Halaal?


Almighty Allah says in the Holy Quran,

لِلَّهِ مُلْكُ السَّمَـوَتِ وَالاٌّرْضِ يَخْلُقُ مَا يَشَآءُ يَهَبُ لِمَن يَشَآءُ إِنَـثاً وَيَهَبُ لِمَن يَشَآءُ الذُّكُورَ – أَوْ يُزَوِّجُهُمْ ذُكْرَاناً وَإِنَـثاً وَيَجْعَلُ مَن يَشَآءُ عَقِيماً إِنَّهُ عَلِيمٌ قَدِيرٌ (الشوري:49)

Translation: “To Allah belongs the kingdom of the heavens and the earth. He creates what He wills. He bestows female upon whom He wills and bestows male upon whom He wills. Or He bestows both males and females, and He renders barren whom He wills. Verily, He is the All-Knower and is Able to do all things.”

(Comment by The Majlis: So far, the fatwa is correct.)

Human beings by nature have desires and wants. Almighty Allah is the Knower of all things. He knows exactly what is best for us. If He decides to give us something, there can be no doubt regarding it being best for us. Almighty Allah says in the Holy Quran,

وَعَسَى أَن تَكْرَهُواْ شَيْئًا وَهُوَ خَيْرٌ لَّكُمْ وَعَسَى أَن تُحِبُّواْ شَيْئًا وَهُوَ شَرٌّ لَّكُمْ وَاللّهُ يَعْلَمُ وَأَنتُمْ لاَ تَعْلَمُونَ (البقرة:216)

Translation: “But perhaps you hate a thing, but it is good for you; and perhaps you love a thing, but it is bad for you. And Allah Knows, while you know not.”

It is a fundamental principle of Islamic Jurisprudence that one must avoid imposing upon one’s physical body actions that are usually considered to be unnatural and unconventional unless there is a dire necessity for doing so. (This is correct – The Majlis) For instance, the human body is accustomed to acquiring its food and drink orally through the gullet, but there are times when, due to certain ailments, food cannot be given to a patient orally. In such cases, the patient is then fed intravenously. Oral feeding is the conventional method whereas the intravenous one will be considered to be the unconventional one.

Shari’ah only permits the intravenous method due to necessity as man cannot usually survive without food and drink.”

(Comment by The Majlis: The Mufti has expressed himself incorrectly on this point. The body has not been artificially customized for the natural process/method of consuming food. The way people are consuming their food is natural. It is the natural method created by Allah Ta’ala. It is not merely a ‘conventional’ method. It is not a method which has been adopted and made conventional. It is the only natural way for the ingestion of food.
When a person, due to some grave disease, is unable to eat with his mouth and is forced by circumstances to consume food with his posterior or be fed intravenously, then such methods will be unnatural, not merely ‘unconventional’. An unconventional method can sometimes be natural, e.g. drinking water with a straw, or eating with knives and forks, or eating from a brand new or a thoroughly cleansed chamber pot. While this kind of westernized shaitaan will be eating naturally (i.e. via his mouth), the method will be unconventional and haraam.
Thus, the unnatural method will be permissible ONLY in case of Dharoorat (DIRE NEED), not hallucinated ‘need’ as the liberal muftis of this time imagine. Dire Need (Dharoorat) is only a need upheld by the Shariah.
The factor of Zigzagery

At this stage in his fatwa, the Mufti has subtly introduced the first step in his Zigzag datwa. He has subtly introduced the factor of Dharoorat to render the reader’s mind conducive for the acceptance of the corrupt, baatil conclusion of his liberal view.

The ploy is to imprint in the mind of readers that the desire of having a child is a Dharoorat, hence the ‘permissibility’ of artificial insemination. Thus the zigzagging between Haqq and baatil should be conspicuous to all intelligent men.
Continuing his fatwa, the Mufti says:

“In the absence of necessity, Shari’ah does not recommend the usage of unconventional methods of infusing objects into the body.” (This is incorrect. It is a devious attempt to mismanipulate the Shar’i principle of Dharoorat, and to confuse the unlearned. In the absence of ‘necessity’ (Dharoorat), the Shariah forbids usage of unnatural and unconventional methods. The Shariah does not merely “not recommend” the haraam methods. It strictly forbids the satanic methods. This is the second step in the process of zigzagery. -The Majlis)

Zigzagging back to the Shariah, the Mufti says:

“That brings us to your question regarding artificial insemination. As all the modern methods of artificial insemination (GIFT, IVF, IVI and ICSI) are not conventional (in fact are unnatural satanic methods – The Majlis) methods of inducing fertilization nor are these procedures a matter of life and death, opting for these procedures would be against the principles of Shari’ah.

In instances where these procedures are carried out by a doctor, which is more likely, many aspects of it will be considered to be prohibited by the Shari’ah.

Firstly, the male will be required to extract sperm through masturbation. This is not permissible. In the event the sperm is extracted lawfully, the female will be required to expose her Awrah to the doctor. One is only allowed to expose the Awrah to a doctor in the case of dire necessity.

(The Majlis comments: This section of the fatwa conforms with the Shariah. However, the Mufti reverting to his zigzag haraam liberal trajectory, avers):
“If you are unable to conceive through natural methods, and there are no other alternatives, then there is leeway in making use of IVF.”
(Our Comment: This is the satanism which shaitaan has inspired into the brains of the Mufti. With this stupid statement he seeks to impose on the understanding of ignorant people that sterility (uqmah/barrenness) is Shar’i Dhuroorat justifying the commission of haraam and a major sin.
While this wayward Mufti begins his Zigzag fatwa with the appropriate Qur’aanic Aayat, he conveniently or surreptitiously or ignorantly refrains from taking into account the penultimate statement of the Aayat which has a fundamental bearing on the issue under discussion. In this statement, Allah Azza Wa Jal says: “He makes barren whomever He wills.”
The sterility whether in the woman or the man, is the act and will of Allah Ta’ala. In this Aayat, Allah Azza Wa Jal explicitly informs us of His Will and Desire. Under no stretch of Imaani rationality and reasoning can it ever be valid to act in contravention of Allah’s Will and Desire despite the fact that in this dunya Allah Ta’ala has bestowed to humans limited ability to act in conflict with His Will. Since this dunya is the arena of trial and conflict where Muslims have to choose between halaal and haraam, vice and virtue, the limited freewill has been granted to man.
However, the freedom to act in violation of Allah’s Will and Desire does not halaalize the improper utilization of the freedom to act. It is Allah’s Will and Desire that adultery be not committed despite the fact that man has been granted the freedom to act in conflict with the Divine Will. Similarly, it is HARAAM to violate Allah’s Will and Desire regarding ‘barrenness’ despite the haraam ability to do so by the satanic IVF technique invented by the Satanist atheists.
It is this satanistic technique of artificial insemination which is a conglomeration of haraam, filth and satanism which this miserable Mufti Sahib has attempted to slip into the Permissibility folds of the Shariah by the intentional misapplication of the Shar’i principle of Dharoorat.
The Mufti has painfully, stupidly and satanically laboured most deviously and without dexterity, to zigzag his baatil view of permissibility into the fabric of the Shariah.
If a woman is unable to conceive lawfully by the natural method created by Allah Ta’ala, or by even permitted unconventional methods (such as Ta’weez and Amaliyaat, and lawful medicine) which all come within the purview of lawful Asbaab (valid material ways), then it does not justify nor render permissible the haraam satanic techniques of the atheists kuffaar. Her only recourse is Dua, Sabr and Tawakkul. There is no other option. –The Majlis)
The Mufti then says:

“However, it will still not be permissible to tamper with any aspect of the process to ensure a specific gender. Whatever has been decreed for you can never escape you. If you are granted males, be thankful. If you are granted females, then too you must be thankful.”

(While this is correct, it is an attempt to zigzag back to the Shariah, albeit a futile attempt. It is futile because it is in stark conflict with his ‘leeway’ view. There is no difference between this haraam attempt and the other haraam attempt of IVF for the purpose of pregnancy. Both techniques, i.e. to resort to haraam for inducing pregnancy, and for resorting to haraam for selecting the gender of the future child, are satanically villainous, hence HARAAM. There is absolutely no Shar’i Dharoorat principle applicable in these two haraam techniques.Whtever has been willed by Allah Ta’ala for you, accept it with contentment.
Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “It is of the good fortune of a person that he is pleased with whatever Allah has decreed for him/her.” – The Majlis
With conspicuous hollowness and insincerity, the Mufti advises:

“Have hope in the mercy and bounties of Almighty Allah. Make Dua to Almighty Allah if you wish for a specific gender. Almighty Allah says in a Hadith Qudsi,

يقول الله تعالى: أنا عند ظن عبدي بي

Translation: “I am to my slave as he thinks of me, (i.e. I am able to do for him what he thinks I can do for him).”
Checked and Approved by,
Mufti Ebrahim Desai.


The haraam and corrupt fatwa issued by Mufti Ebrahim Desai on the issue of IVF is incompatible with the sentiments expressed by the Mufti in the above avernment. These sentiments may not be restricted to only selective haraam acts. Dua, Tawakkul, Sabr and Ridha apply to all states of the Mu’min. These noble attributes of moral excellence have to be incumbently employed in all instances which demand abstention. Just as it is Waajib to abstain from the haraam technique of gender-selection, so too is it Waajib to abstain from the haraam technique of inducing pregnancy.

Our advice to the Mufti Sahib is to endeavour the restoration of his Imaani bearings by shunning western ideas of liberalism which the Muftis of today adopt especially in modern financial matters, more specifically in the dalliance with the riba banks. Fear Allah Ta’ala. Maut constantly hovers over our heads. Prepare for the stay in Barzakh. Do not barter away your Aakhirah in exchange for the jeefah of this dunya. Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhhi wasallam) said:

“The dunya is jeefah (carrion).”

What is the shar’i ruling of hermaphrodites with regards to marriage and inheritance?

1.What is the shar’ee ruling regarding a hermaphrodite with regards to:


b) inheritance?

2. In a case where a man married a hermaphrodite, not knowing her natural phenomenon (as he/she is predominantly feminine in features) happens to find out after the nikah has been performed, what is the ruling concerning this?



In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.


As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.


hermaphrodite is an organism that has reproductive organs normally associated with both male and female sexes.  It is known as a khuntā in the Arabic language.  All the books of Islamic law have a chapter dedicated to the laws relating to a khunthā.  [1]


Firstly, all measures will be taken to ascertain the sex of a khunthā.  If the hermaphrodite urinates from the male reproductive organ, he will be regarded as a male.  If the hermaphrodite urinates from the female reproductive organ she will be regarded as female.  If the hermaphrodite urinates from both male and female organs, the first one to release urine will be considered.  All these signs will be analysed to ascertain the gender of the hermaphrodite prior to adolescence.[2]


If the gender of the hermaphrodite was not ascertained prior to maturity, then the gender will be determined after maturity.[3]


The hermaphrodite will be classified as a male in the following instances:

  • He has conjugal relations with his male reproductive organ.
  • He has facial hair.
  • He experiences nocturnal discharge like men.
  • His testimony of his inner self.
  • He is inclined to women.


The hermaphrodite will be classified as a female in the following instances:

  • The growth of breasts like women.
  • The experiencing of menstruation.
  • She has intercourse like a female.
  • She falls pregnant.
  • She lactates.


If none of these signs transpire, the hermaphrodite will remain a hermaphrodite.  According to Imam Sarakhsi rahimahullah, it is virtually impossible for some of the above signs not to manifest.[4]


A hermaphrodite’s marriage will be not be valid until the gender is ascertained.[5] If the gender is ascertained and the sex is the same as that of the partner, the nikāh will be invalid.  If the sex of the hermaphrodite is opposite to that of the partner, the hermaphrodite if he is a male, then he will be given one year respite to remove any physical defects, or else the partner may apply for an annulment of the marriage.[6] If the hermaphrodite is a female,   there is no need for a respite as the husband has the right of divorce.


To hide such defects which are generally disliked or cause disinclination to a prospective spouse is deception.  The Prophet salallahu alaihi wasallam said,

“Whoever deceives us is not from amongst us.”[7] (Sahih Muslim)


With regards to inheritance, a hermaphrodite will receive the share which is the lesser amount of the possible shares.  In every scenario, the hermaphrodite will be envisaged a male and female, in whichever state the hermaphrodite receives less, the hermaphrodite will be treated as that gender for that particular scenario and subsequently given that share.[8]

فَإِنْ زَوَّجَهُ الْأَبُ امْرَأَةً وَبَلَغَ وَظَهَرَ عَلَامَاتُ الرِّجَالِ وَنَحْوُهُ حُكِمَ بِجَوَازِ النِّكَاحِ إلَّا أَنَّهُ إذَا لَمْ يَصِلْ إلَيْهَا فَإِنَّهُ يُؤَجَّلُ سَنَةً كَمَا يُؤَجَّلُ غَيْرُهُ إذَا لَمْ يَصِلْ إلَى امْرَأَتِهِ وَلَوْ أَنَّ هَذَا الْخُنْثَى الْمُشْكِلَ تَزَوَّجَ خُنْثَى مِثْلَهُ فَالنِّكَاحُ يَكُونُ مَوْقُوفًا إلَى أَنْ يَسْتَبِينَ حَالُهُمَا فَإِنْ تَبَيَّنَ حَالُهُمَا فَالنِّكَاحُ جَائِزٌ وَإِنْ مَاتَ أَحَدُهُمَا أَوْ مَاتَا قَبْلَ أَنْ يَزُولَ الْإِشْكَالُ لَمْ يَتَوَارَثَا وَإِنْ مَاتَا وَتَرَكَا أَحَدَ الْأَبَوَيْنِ فَأَقَامَ كُلُّ وَاحِدٍ مِنْ وَرَثَتِهِمَا الْبَيِّنَةَ أَنَّهُ هُوَ الزَّوْجُ وَأَنَّ الْآخَرَ هُوَ الزَّوْجَةُ لَا يَقْضِي بِشَيْءٍ مِنْ ذَلِكَ، وَلَوْ أَنَّ رَجُلًا قَبَّلَ هَذَا الْخُنْثَى بِشَهْوَةٍ لَيْسَ لِهَذَا الرَّجُلِ أَنْ يَتَزَوَّجَ بِمَحَارِمِهِ حَتَّى يَتَبَيَّنَ أَمْرَهُ.

Explaining the incredible and shocking indulgence of Molvis in immorality – fisq and fujoor – a concerned parent from Pietermaritzburg laments:
“As a concerned parent, I would like to know if swimming is permissible if there is no segregation of boys and girls. I do not like to judge but there is an Aalim, Moulana Saliem, in our community in Pietermaritzburg, who teaches swimming to our Muslim children. However, he does not separate the boys and girls, and some of these children are at the age of marriage. They all swim together and have conversations in between their swimming sessions.

The parents, mostly mothers, are allowed to sit and watch their children and this moulana also goes to the mothers and have chit chat with them in public view.

There is also another Aalim, Moulana Moosa from the same area, who goes to the pool and decides that it is correct to learn how to swim among hundreds of non- mahram woman and girls. Moulana Saliem also makes these innocent children participate in swim competitions like the Midmar Mile which is to take place next month at the Midmar dam.

Apart from all the nudity at the event There are thousands of swimmers who take part in this race. Men and women all swim together and this Aalim also participates in this competition with his swimmers. There is also another Aalim from the same community to add to the list who swims in this competition.

We look up to these moulanas in our community, so I would like to know if this is the correct thing which these learned people are doing as these moulanas are the high profile of our community. Moulana Saliem is part of the Jamiatul Ulama KZN, and an Imaam in a Masjid. Moulana Moosa is part of a Darul Uloom in Pietermartizburg – Madrasah Tarteelul Quraan.

Can people follow these Moulanas in Namaaz and can we take their advices? (End of the parent’s letter)

The level of degradation into the dregs of the cauldron of immorality and zina is shockingly lamentable. By no stretch of Imaani understanding can these molvis be described as ‘Aalims’. In fact they are juhala of the worst kind. They are fussaaq and fujjaar of the worst order. They are Satanists.

It is incredible to fathom – it is beyond even the imagination of conscious Muslims that molvis who are regarded to be part of the Ulama Fraternity indulging in zina so flagrantly in full public view. It is difficult to accept that they are even Muslims. It is not possible for people of Imaan, even for fussaaq and fujjaar, to denude themselves of every vestige of Imaani haya to organize, participate and promote even 3 year old boys and girls to swim together. But here in Pietermaritzburg, molvis linked to Madaaris and Musaajid are most brazenly and flagrantly promoting zina in the pools loaded with fisq and fujoor.

When it is not permissible to even view the garments of a female, it defies Imaani imagination to even attempt imagining Muslim boys and girls, men and women swimming together. While such filth is understandable for non-Muslims, such zina lewdness is incomprehensible regarding Muslims even in this age in close proximity to Qiyaamah. Are these molvis Muslims? They appear to be munaafiqeen masquerading as Muslims. They come within the purview of Allah’s castigation:

“The A’raab (rural village-dwellers) say: ‘We have Imaan.’ Say (O Muhammd to them): ‘You have no Imaan. Rather say: ‘We have submitted (i.e. accepted Islam superficially) whilst Imaan has not entered into your hearts.” (Al-Hujuraat, Aayat 14)

These molvis who brazenly and flagrantly promote ZINA by condoning and participating in the mass perpetration of immoral nudity in the water by men and women, kuffaar and Muslims alike, are in the same class as these A’raab whose Imaan Allah Ta’ala denies. How is it possible for even fussaaq and fujjaar Muslims to promote and believe that such zina nudity is halaal? Aggravating the immoral villainy of their kufr is their parading as ‘ulama’ whilst in reality they are agents of Iblees.

These molvis also come within the scope of the Qur’aanic Aayaat which revile the Munaafiqeen. Allah Ta’ala says:

“And, from among the people are those who say: ‘We believe in Allah and the Last day.’, whilst (in reality) they are not Mu’mineen. They deceive Allah (in their stupid opinion) and the people of Imaan. However, they deceive only themselves.

In their hearts is a disease (of nifaaq). Therefore Allah increases their disease, and for them there is a painful punishment because of their lies.”

(Al-Baqarah, 8 and 9)

The shameless fisq and fujoor (immorality/obscenity and satanic promiscuity) of these molvis is absolutely mind-boggling. How is it possible for such immoral scoundrels to be members of Jamiatul Ulama KZN. Is the Jamiat’s leadership so blind or so utterly uncaring of Allah Ta’ala and His Deen that they are unable to see and understand the gravity of the fisq and fujoor bordering on kufr of their molvi members who promote ZINA publicly?

“The (physical eyes) are not blind. But the hearts within the breasts are blind.” (Qur’aan)
Toleration and acceptance of the brazen acts of immorality of the molvis are the effect of the spiritual blindness mentioned in this Qur’aanic Aayat.

The vile and filthy public misdeeds of these molvis accord greater credibility and clarity to the tafseer of a Hadith presented by a Faqeeh. Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said:

“Soon shall there dawn an age when………the worst of the people under the canopy of the sky will be their ulama. From them will emerge fitnah and the fitnah will rebound on them.”

The Faqeeh commenting on this Hadith said that ‘under the canopy of the sky’ are also the Yahood, the Nasaara, the Mushrikeen, dogs and pigs. Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) categorised these exceptionally evil movis as worse than all of these creations. Thus those molvis who are in this satanic game of promoting nudity and zina so blatantly are worse than even khanaazeer.

Their public and flagrant promotion of and participation in the swimming ZINA cannot be by error. Their Satanism is pre-planned and by design. It is a palpable denial of the entire concept of Hijaab revealed by Allah Ta’ala.

If they had an iota of Imaan, they would have trembled with fear even if their zina shenanigans were perpetrated in privacy. But these villains and vile scoundrels propagate their zina in full view of the public.

Their recklessness in the public perpetration of immorality and zina has emboldened many Muslim women to act as lesbians. These shaitaani females following in the shaitaani footsteps of the evil molvis have denuded themselves of every semblance of Imaani haya, hence they are able to shamelessly spectate the acts of nudity and zina which the illegitimate progeny of Iblees has organized in the form of the filthy mixed men and women swimming functions.

These people – the evil molvis and the spectators – are all mal-oon and maghdoob – Allah’s la’nat and ghadhab settle on them every second of their participation in the molvi-organized zina swimming shaitaaniyat. Modesty and bashfulness for doing even what is permissible, are integral constituents of Imaan. Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said:

“Haya is a branch of Imaan.” Thus, for even a Muslim male to leave his elbows exposed, to eat in the public, to laugh loudly, to be dressed with only a T-shirt in public, and in general to do any act which Islamically is considered khilaaf-e-murawwat (uncultural) are in conflict with Imaani hayaa despite the initial permissibility of such acts which are regarded to be trivialities. But in Islam habitual commission of even ‘trivialities’ culminates in major sins.

The illegitimate progeny of Iblees – those who prostitute the haya and chastity of Muslim women under Deeni guise with the monstrous LIE that swimming is ‘Sunnat’ for them, and that too by denuding themselves in public – are devilishly oblivious of the faintest idea of the meaning of Imaani Haya, hence their brazen indulgence in and promotion of the grotesquely obscene zina-swimming act, the toxity of which is of a satanically aggravated nature.

What is Imaani Hayaa and Ghairah? The following Hadith will serve as edification for the satanized brains of these vile molvis:

“Hadhrat Sa’ad Bin Ubaadah (Tadhiyallahu anhu) said: ‘I will not hesitate killing my wife with a sword should I see her with another man.”

Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “Only a person with a darkened heart is deprived of ghairah.”

These fussaaq and fujjaar molvis are totally deprived of Imaani haya and ghairah. Their hearts are darkened with the zulmat of kufr. Never in the history of Islam was immorality of this nature committed. There is no precedent in Islam for semi-nude Muslim males and females immorally swimming together under molvi supervision.

Once Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) asked: “What is best for women.” No one was able to proffer an answer. Hadhrat Ali (Radhiyallahu anhu) went to his wife, Hadhrat Faatimah (Radhiyallahu anha) and posed the same question. This illustrious Daughter of our Nabi (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam), the Queen of Jannat, responded:

“No man should see her, and she should see no man.”

On hearing this grand response, Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) commented: “Faatimah is a portion of me.”

Imaani Hayaa demands that a man should not unnecessarily look at even a fully clad woman – clad with burqah and niqaab, nor should a woman unnecessarily look at a ghair mahram man. Imaani Hayaa demands that a man should not look at even the dead body of a woman enshrouded in FIVE sheets. To safeguard this lofty concept of Imaani Hayaa, the enshrouded body of the deceased woman is further screened from the gazes of men by a screen drawn over the female’s enshrouded body as it is lowered in the Qabar. But, what do we find today in our midst?

Thoroughly satanized molvis – human shayaateen – men with the hearts of wolves – goading Muslim women to appear semi-nude into the public domain to mingle with semi-nude males in pools to swim together while being spectated by a crowd of men and women devils – male devils and females devils. And, they have the treacherous temerity of promoting all of this ZINA as ‘sunnah’!!! They should cleanse the surface of this earth of their filth and villainy by drowning themselves.

The swimming which these shaitaani scoundrels depict as ‘sunnah’ is a Kabeerah sin of the worst order. In fact, for these villainous scoundrel molvis, it is KUFR. Salaat behind these treacherous human shayaateen is not valid. They are not fussaaq of the humdrum class predominating this era, who understand their misdeeds to be sins for which Taubah is imperative. These human shaitaan molvis are guilty of irtidaad. Renewal of Imaan is imperative.

These are the types of molvis who, according to the Hadith, will be compelled in Jahannam to circumambulate their own intestines which will be extracted from their bodies and cast in front of them for making tawaaf.

What has happened to the other Ulama of Pietermaritzburg? What has happened to the Jamiat KZN? Having receded into the fortress of silence, they have demonstrated that they are the very ‘dumb devils’ about whom Rasulullah (Sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) said:

“He who is silent regarding the Haqq, is a dumb shaitaan.”

It is haraam to have these shayaateen as members of the Jamiat. It is haraam for the trustees to permit these evil molvis to be Imaams.

These villainous scoundrel molvis, the Musjid trustees and the Jamiat are all Signs of the Impending Hour of Qiyaamah. They flagrantly violate Allah’s Laws and shamelessly abstain from Amr Bil Ma’roof Nahyi Anil Munkar for the attainment of their corrupt motives. They pillage and plunder Amaanat (Trust). About these ulama-e-soo’ and trustees bonded to their nafs being Signs of Qiyaamah, it is mentioned in the Hadith:

“Someone asked: ‘When shall be the Hour (of Qiyaamah)?’ Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “When Amaanat (Trust) is destroyed, then await the Hour.” He was asked: ‘How will Amaanat be destroyed?’ Nabi (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “When affairs (of trust) are assigned to those who are unfit (to bear the Trust), then await the Hour.”

Today thoroughbred scoundrels and abusers of Amaanat are acting as Imaams of Musjids, as Ustaadhs in Madaaris and as members of bodies such as Ulama Jamiats.

When such vile acts of fisq and fujoor – such acts of the prostitution of haya and chastity are so flagrantly perpetrated by men who are supposed to be the spiritual guides of the Muslim community, then Muslims have to understand and be in anticipation of the imminence of the Hour of Qiyaamah.

Q. How should a child be taught subjects of a sexual nature? How should he / she be informed of prohibited and permissible acts, about masturbation, zina, etc.? What age would be proper to teach them about these issues?
A. Western influence has prompted you to ask this question. The western kuffaar are immorally obsessed with sex, hence they satanically fabricate sex ‘education’ for children.
How did you gain knowledge of these sexual issues? How did the millions and billions of children from the time of Nabi Aadam (Alayhis salaam) acquire this knowledge? In the same way as you and us all acquired this knowledge, so too will all other children until the Day of Qiyaamah acquire it. Do not burden your brains with copro-stupidities.

Among the many letters concerned Muslims are writing to us, one Brother writes:

“There is a very huge uproar regarding the Comprehensive Sex Education that is planned to be introduced in the school curriculum. Can Molana please proffer advice as to how we should oppose it.

Many Muslim women are joining WhatsApp groups with men on the same groups discussing and vehemently opposing the CSE. Does Molana think that this is the correct way to voice their displeasure? Or is it a ploy of Shaitaan for women to be on the groups. I personally think discussing the filthy CSE content on the groups in itself is filthy with no hayaa.”

The women and men who engage in the filthy topic are themselves filth. They lack even a vestige of hayaa. These people are not Muslims. They only masquerade as Muslims whilst in reality they are munaafiqeen.

Since the past several decades, we have vociferously campaigned against secular schools and universities despite there having been no uproar whatsoever. In fact, we have repeatedly and vigorously proclaimed the stance of the Shariah regarding these immoral kuffaar institutions of secular learning.

Our stance is that it is haraam to learn even arithmetic and geography in these immoral schools, leave alone the current shaitaani ‘comprehensive sex education’ filth which the followers of the Devil are introducing.

Brother, no amount of ‘uproaring’ will avail. Muslims have long ago embraced with love and honour the kuffaar schools of immorality. They accord far greater importance and serious and diligent concern to secular education in immoral institutions than to Qur’aanic knowledge. The Qur’aan and Islamic education have been brutally made subservient to secular education. The Deeni Ta’leem of children is a hobby or a past-time activity to be adopted and discarded at whim and fancy. It is not regarded as the Fardh obligation imposed on the Ummah by Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam). Even kuffaar sport, which is a fundamental constituent of secular education, and which Muslims and even the evil muftis have justified and satanically halaalized, is elevated to a higher pedestal than Maktab education – the ta’leem of the Qur’aan and the Basics of Islam.

This shaitaani attitude of the Muslim community will have its sequel in the Divine Court on the Day of Qiyaamah when Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) will complain to Allah Ta’ala, saying:

“O my Rabb! These my people have made this Qur’aan an object for buffeting (a football).”
Besides the immoral, shaitaani CSE issue, secular schools – not secular education – are haraam. It is haraam to learn any branch of secular knowledge at these immoral schools of the Devil. The uproar against CSE is meaningless. It is a lot of silly hot hair signifying nothing. As we near Qiyaamah, the trend of naked immorality will incumbently become incremental. The stage has to be reached when people will fornicate like dogs on the streets and in the malls to provide shaitaani entertainment.

Muslims – the vast majority – today are ‘Muslim’ merely by name. At heart, they are atheists. Despite the uproar, the filth will become an embedded constituent of the devil’s curriculum of these schools. “Muslims’ will embrace it. The initial bleatings of protest which you term ‘uproar’, will soon evaporate and the filth will be accepted, and later applauded and honoured by ‘Muslims’ to justify the continued attendance of their children at these schools of shaitaan.

The community is rotten to the core. It stinks with the rot of immorality. The feeble and flabby whisperings against CSE are not an ‘uproar’. If there is a genuine UPROAR, the authorities will heed the protests. The only way for Muslims, if they believe themselves to be Muslims, is to stage a massive boycott of these schools. They should totally abandon secular schools, and make their own proper and valid Islamic arrangement for the provision of valid secular education for their children.

The billions of rands which the Muslim community wastes down the devil’s drain on haraam, weddings, haraam luxuries, haraam holidays, mock umrahs, mock hajj, haraam functions of a variety of evil kinds, and in many other haraam and wasteful avenues should be constructively and intelligently utilized for the provision of Islamisized secular education.

There is no other advice. May Allah Ta’ala guide and protect us from the evils of the nafs and the snares of shaitaan.

Giving up sins

Q: I need some help. I’m 23 years of age and from a conservative Muslim minority. My problem started when I was younger and I was introduced to porn movies and masturbation. I need your advice.

A: The best solution for you is to get married. If you cannot get married then commence fasting and daily take out some time daily to meditate over death and the stages after death.

Meditate over the following at a time when nothing obstructs you, perhaps after Esha Salaah. First make a proper wudhu and perform two rakaats of Taubah Salaah. Thereafter, focus deeply over death and the events that will follow after death, the loneliness of the grave, standing before Allah Ta`ala for reckoning, Jannah and Jahannum and thereafter think to yourself, can you tolerate Jahannum for a single moment. When you cannot, then how can you be brazen about matters that will take you to Jahannum.

Reprimand yourself saying that you are enjoying the comforts of Allah Ta`ala and His favours during the day and night, and is this the way to show appreciation to the one who is so loving and caring. Explain to yourself that the one who leads this type of life really does not have any understanding of loyalty and faithfulness to the one who is most loving and beneficent towards him.

After crying over your sins with deep remorse and regret, make a firm resolve that you will never repeat these wrongs in the future.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.

عن عبد الرحمن بن يزيد قال دخلت مع علقمة والأسود على عبد الله فقال عبد الله كنا مع النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم شبابا لا نجد شيئا فقال لنا رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يا معشر الشباب من استطاع الباءة فليتزوج فإنه أغض للبصر وأحصن للفرج ومن لم يستطع فعليه بالصوم فإنه له وجاء (صحيح البخاري، الرقم: 5066)

عن أبي هريرة قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم أكثروا ذكر هاذم اللذات يعني الموت وفي الباب عن أبي سعيد هذا حديث حسن غريب (سنن الترمذي، الرقم: 2307)

عن عمرو بن مرة قال سمعت أبا عبيدة يحدث عن أبي موسى عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال إن الله عز وجل يبسط يده بالليل ليتوب مسيء النهار ويبسط يده بالنهار ليتوب مسيء الليل حتى تطلع الشمس من مغربها (صحيح مسلم، الرقم: 2759)

قال العلماء التوبة واجبة من كل ذنب فإن كانت المعصية بين العبد وبين الله تعالى لا تتعلق بحق آدمي فلها ثلاثة شروط أحدها أن يقلع عن المعصية والثاني أن يندم على فعلها والثالث أن يعزم أن لايعود إليها أبدا فإن فقد أحد الثلاثة لم تصح توبته وإن كانت المعصية تتعلق بآدمي فشروطها أربعة هذه الثلاثة وأن يبرأ من حق صاحبها فإن كانت مالا أو نحوه رده إليه وإن كانت حد قذف ونحوه مكنه منه أو طلب عفوه وإن كانت غيبة استحله منها ويجب أن يتوب من جميع الذنوب فإن تاب من بعضها صحت توبته عند أهل الحق من ذلك الذنب وبقي عليه الباقي وقد تظاهرت دلائل الكتاب والسنة وإجماع الأمة على وجوب التوبة (رياض الصالحين صـ 14)

وقال البيضاوي سئل على رضي الله عنه عن التوبة فقال يجمعها ستة أشياء على الماضي من الذنوب الندم وللفرائض الاعادة ورد المظالم واستحلال الخصوم وان تعزم على ان لا تعود وان تزكى نفسك على طاعة اللّه كما رايتها فى المعصية (التفسير المظهري 9/345)

لا خلاف أن النكاح فرض حالة التوقان حتى أن من تاقت نفسه إلى النساء بحيث لا يمكنه الصبر عنهن وهو قادر على المهر والنفقة ولم يتزوج يأثم (بدائع الصنائع 2/228)

Adultery, With Consent

by Maulana Khalid Dhorat

Counselors, psychologists and social-workers are normally bound to confidentiality. Even if you hold a gun to their head, they will not divulge the intimate details of anyone’s personal life. However, details of a new shocking and shameless sexual trend in the Muslim community are forcing them to break out of their shell, and warn, in broad terms, of an evil that even the devil himself is shy to practice, but Muslims have taken to.

I hesitated for a whole month before putting pen to paper on this embarrassing topic, but ultimately our duty is to admonish, even if enemies are created in the process. If a person’s marriage can be saved by reading it, and if the community can be made aware of it so that married couples do not fall prey to it; better still, if the culprits repent, then it is worthwhile. If the Almighty spoke about homosexuality – a deed so indecent that none should even try to conjure in his mind – in the Qur’an, then we should also not be shy of speaking about this shameless practice. Our Noble Master, Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) informed us that if a person loses his modesty, he will do just about anything, even copulate like a donkey in the middle of the street. Sadly, that time is now.
Public scenes of absolute shamelessness and perversity can not only be viewed on our television sets and on our internet smartphones at any time of the day by adults as well as children, but rampant fornication and adultery is being practiced in our homes, parks, clubs, brothels, and alleys daily. Children have even been caught watching pornography on their smartphones whilst the Friday sermon is being delivered!

Adultery and fornication, though despicable acts, are committed secretly because there is still a thread of guilt attached to it. But we now have another indecent sexual act which is so lewd that it puts the word “adultery” to shame. It is called “cuckold behavior.” A cuckoo is a bird which lays its eggs in either the nest of another bird or in communal nests and beckons others to look after her and her children. Likewise, “cuckold behavior” is asking a stranger to mate with your wife and you mate with his, and both regard each other’s children as their own. In simple terms, it’s a practice responsible for illegitimate children within marriage, and of committing adultery with not only the knowledge, but the blessing and approval of your own partner!
This is the testimony of young married Muslim woman who recently experienced such an episode.

“I’m married to a wonderful person,” says a woman. “About six months after our marriage, my beloved husband asked me to dress up for an exclusive occasion. We arrived at the palatial home of one of his friends at about 7:00 PM, and I recognized many prominent couples, young and old, from my neighbourhood, there. We dined and the evening progressed without incident until some low seductive music was switched on. As the various couples started dancing or strolling around on the patio and the well-manicured lawn, I noticed that some men would casually latch themselves on to the wife of his friend, and her husband would fall into the arms of his wife. I first thought that I was hallucinating until I seen more and more couples doing this, until everyone was with a complete stranger! I was feeling very uneasy when my husband suddenly asked me to speak to his friend whom we invited home a few times already, and to go for a stroll with him. He would meet up with me and his friend’s wife in the upstairs room, probably with another mixed couple.”

“I was too stunned to even move. As the cold reality of what was really happening hit me like a ton of bricks, my husband became impatient and he harshly pushed me in the direction of his friend. This was too much for me. I removed my high-heels and ran to the car, hiding my face in shame. My husband silently drove me home, but once there, he locked me into our bedroom for three days, abusing me and assaulting me, telling me how I had shamed him by refusing to sleep with his friend, in exchange of him sleeping with his wife, in full view of each other.”
“I pretended to understand, and even agreed to go with him the next time, just to earn my freedom. As soon as I was unlocked, I packed a suitcase and darted straight to my parent’s home.” “I will never return to such a beast, even in a million years,” she said.

Are you shocked? I’m sure, but there is more to come. The above is an account of a modest sister who ran away from the trap, but those involved in it have more to say. According to Mufti Wikipedia, I’m about 50 years behind with my research. This shameful practice, known as “wife-swapping,” but now as “swinging couples,” has been a practice from the 1960s already in the West. However, it is now becoming popular amongst Muslims too. In the West, anything can become legal if two people simply agree to it. A man can sodomise his wife if she agrees to it, and a woman can sleep with her dog if the neighbour doesn’t mind. Islam, however, does not follow such secular thoughts and democratic principles. It’s the law of the Almighty that reigns supreme, irrespective if none agrees with.
It is estimated that about 4% of couples in the West practice wife-swapping. As of 2011, some experts believe that there were as many as 15 million Americans swinging on a regular basis. The following three reasons have been given for it:

The first reason is that some couples came to realize that monogamy is not natural for humans. So many begin fantasizing with another person when being intimate with their partners. Our Prophet Muhammad (may peace be upon him) likened such fantasizing as being unfaithful to one’s spouse, on par with adultery itself. If a person cannot get over a woman, Islam has permitted polygamy; but if the woman is married, then you need to respect her position. Wife-swapping is not the answer.
Every person in this world has been given a vivid imagination so that he may ponder over the message of the Qur’an. He is not to stimulate his imagination by viewing pornography, erotic pictures and reading romantic exotic novels so that his lust can be inflamed and he craves for more. Since ‘more’ is generally not possible as the person may be married, or the object of one’s desire is a film star or supermodel, the person tries to satisfy these desires by fantasizing.

The cure for this is that when these filthy thoughts come to mind, picture yourself on the Day of Judgment giving an account of your deeds. If this doesn’t work for you, then take out your frustration on the culprit: the television and the laptop, which sometimes husband and wife jointly see. If a steamy scene appears on screen, both of them will open their eyes wider, but block the eyes of their children! This mutual approval of both husband and wife seeing such filth causes their imagination to race out of control and leads to many problems in their marriage. If you cannot control what you see, take a sock and fill it with a clump of stones. Swing it a few times until it picks up momentum, then take aim at the television or the laptop. Break them in 200 pieces. Then have a milkshake to celebrate!

The second cause of wife-swapping is that some middle-aged couples experience a rut in their marriage and cannot find anything else but sex to solve their problem. They do not take to sports, religion, studying or community work to occupy themselves, so they came up with a sick way of stimulating themselves by seeing others enjoying themselves with their wife. “If I can see how she screams with joy with someone else, I can also do the same with her,” is their reasoning. “Why cheat secretly when we can do so with the approval of our partner? Everyone goes through ups and downs in life, and this is just a coping mechanism,” they say. All married couples have problems, even after being married for fifty years. We have doctors, psychologists and medication to treat any condition, but to prescribe wife-swapping to create love in your marriage is like dousing a flaming pan of oil with water! It will only worsen it.

The third reason of wife-swapping couples is their ability of overcoming Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) such as AIDS and the issue of overcoming jealousy and possessiveness for each other. In order to overcome viewing one’s wife as not one’s princess charming to be loved and protected, but the dirty property of the whole world, they separate sex from love. Such people shouldn’t even get married as they are nothing but vampires in sheepskin! Being intimate with one’s partner is a sign of the ultimate love; but for them, women are like machines – to be used and duped that they still love them. According to their perverted reasoning: “We don’t have to sneak and cheat anymore, we can do it in front of our partner and can be honest about it!”

Research reveals that many “swingers” have either been abused as children, are such drug addicts that a chemical “high” is not satisfying for them anymore, or have serious mental problems. Women who agree to this shameful practice generally suffer from an inferiority complex and actually rationalize it in this way: “If he can enjoy himself in my presence, then I’m happy for him!”

If “swinging” is not acceptable to Muslims due to its lopsided reasoning, then the equally shameful sexual practices in the name of our fair religion such as “Mut’ah” and “Misyar” should also not be acceptable. The “Mut’ah” or “Fixed-Term” marriage contract, which involves a token payment and a fixed amount of time, either 30 minutes or 30 days, with no witnesses or foral contract, is nothing but prostitution. Similarly, the “Misyar” or “Travelling-Marriage” contract wherein a man marries a woman, and she agrees to forego her right of maintenance, living with her husband, equal distribution, and even making such marriage public, in exchange for a husband who will visit her at his sole discretion for whatever amount of time. This is nothing but being a glorified mistress. Religion has come to protect and uphold chastity, and Swinging, Mut’ah and Misyar corrode it. Don’t be fooled by incomprehensible societal reasons or far-fetched textual evidence from the Qur’an that justify immorality and oppression to women. If you cite a reason or an evidence for anything, or if people agree to a sin, it doesn’t necessarily legalise it.

Lastly, our Noble Prophet Muhammad (may peace be upon him) has said that due to immorality, you will be afflicted with droughts, oppressive rulers and injustice. Although everyone in society may not be immoral, but if we do not stop the immorality in our midst, all of us will suffer the divine consequences. Let us all do our bit to clean up our environment

The Sin of Adultery and Fornication


Why is adultery/fornication so attractive?


attraction sin

Shaytan committed a sin through disobeying Allah with his arrogance; he thought he was better than Adam so he refused to obey Allah’s command that he bow to Adam. Hence, he incurred Allah’s Wrath. Instead of becoming humble, admitting his sin to Allah and seeking His (swt) repentance, he became even more stubborn, shameful, arrogant and revengeful. He blamed his misguidance on Allah and then asked Allah to delay his punishment so he could lead us astray. This is how he vowed to do so; shaytan said: “I will surely sit and wait for them (referring to humans) on your straight path, then I will come at them, from in front of them and behind them, from their right and from their left…’. (Quran Surah al-A’raf, Ayahs 11-18)

So do you see, it is Shaytan’s goal to lead us astray. He knows that fulfilling one’s sexual desires is a basic human need, and he also knows it is a sin to fulfil this need with anyone but our spouse, so he fuels our desire in order to blind us and make us fall.  It is reported that some of the Prophets said to Iblis, “By what did you defeat the son of Adam?” He said, “At the time of anger and at the time of desire”.

Allah warns us in the Quran (Surah Ibrahim, Ayah 22) by telling us that Shaytan has vowed to entice us and will then turn his back on us when we are held to account on the Day of Judgement by saying: “…Verily, Allah promised you a promise of truth. And I too promised you, but I betrayed you. I had no authority over you except that I called you, so you responded to me. So blame me not, but blame yourselves. I cannot help you, nor can you help me. I deny your former act in associating me (Shaytan) as a partner with Allah (by obeying me in the life of the world). Verily, there is a painful torment for the Zalimoon (polytheists and wrong-doers, etc.).”

So, I ask dear brothers and sisters – why oh why are we intent on pleasing Shaytan when he is out to deceive, destroy and betray us? Do we hold such little self importance that we will lower ourselves to something that will damage us so greatly?

The million dollar question: How can we prevent ourselves from giving into our base desires?

1] Seek protection with Allah from Shaytan, through verbal recitation and establishing prayer:

Allah says in Surah An-A’raf: 201: “Indeed those who fear Allah when an impulse touches then from Shaytan, they remember Him at once and they have insight.”

Allah further says in Surah Fussilat, Verse 36: “And if it comes to you from Shaytan an evil suggestion, then seek refuge in Allah. Indeed He is the All Hearing, All Knowing”. So say: “I seek refuge with Allah from Shaytan the accursed.”

Strengthen your relationship with Allah, through establishing your obligatory acts of worship, five Salaah, Fasting in Ramadan, giving Zakah etc. Allah advises us in Surah Al-Ankabut, Verse 45, to establish Salaah as doing so will protect us from immorality: “Recite, [O Muhammad], what has been revealed to you of the Book and establish prayer. Indeed, prayer prohibits immorality and wrongdoing, and the remembrance of Allah is greater. And Allah knows that which you do”.

2] Remember Allah is watching you:

Next time you have an urge to go into a closed off area to commit your sin, remind yourself of this hadith stated by the Prophet (saw) regarding ‘Ihsan’ (true righteousness):  “[Ihsan is] to worship Allah as though you see Him, and if you cannot see Him, then indeed He sees you.” (Al-Bukhari and Al-Muslim).

Would you feel embarrassed on doing such shameful disgusting deeds if you knew that Allah was watching? Well Allah is watching you and can see and hear your every sinful thought and sinful action. Allah warns us in Surah 43, Verse 80,  “Or do they think that We hear not their secrets and their private counsels?  Indeed (We do), and Our messengers are beside them to record”.

3] Do not belittle the sin, remember the enormity of it:

Remind yourself again and again that anything that leads to a sin is a sin itself: looking, flirting, sweet talking, touching, hugging, intimacy. Do not belittle these seemingly smaller sins: all of them are sins, leading to bigger sins and will cause grief, destruction and doom.

The Prophet (saw) said to Aisha (ra), “O ‘Aishah, abstain from the sins which are looked upon as trivial, for they too will be enquired about by Allah.”  (Ahmad)

Also another saying, “Beware of minor sins, for they will gather together on man so much so that they will kill him.”  (Ahmad)

Furthermore, if you try to console yourself by thinking, ‘Oh well, a bit of flirting, hugging, kissing etc is not actually the real act of zina, so it won’t hurt to do them’, then you are doing nothing but creating a false sense of security for yourself and living in delusion! As remember Allah warns us against coming anywhere near to zina as they lead to the evil way! “And come not near to the  unlawful sexual intercourse. Verily, it is a Fahishah [i.e. anything that transgresses its limits (a great sin)], and an evil way (that leads one to Hell unless Allah forgives him).” (Surah Al-Isra,Verse 32)

Some scholars say that the ‘other’ haraam physical intimacies of the relationship are in fact classified as ‘zina’. In a hadeeth narrated by Muslim, the Prophet (saw) warns us: “The zina of the eyes is looking, the zina of the ears is listening, the zina of the tongue is speaking, the zina of the hand is touching and the zina of the foot is walking. The heart wishes and and longs and the private part confirms that or denies it.”  Ibn Battaal (ra) also said: “Looking and speaking are called zina because they invite one to true zina. He then said: “the private part confirms that or denies it.”

4] Remember you are a disbeliever at the time of committing adultery!

The Prophet (saw) said: “No adulterer is a believer at the time when he is committing adultery.” Narrated by Al-Bukhaari (2475) and Muslim (57).

He (saw) also said: “If a man commits zina, faith comes out of him and hovers over him like a cloud, then when he stops, faith returns to him.” Narrated by Abu Dawood (4960) and al-Tirmidhi (2625);

So you are in a state of disbelief when committing adultery! Furthermore, the acts leading to it have also been labelled as zina in the above hadiths, so even during committing those ‘other’ acts, your iman is in a state of doubt. That leads on to the next frightening point, what if….

5] Imagine, ‘what if’ your soul is taken while you are in that state of disbelief?!

Allah warns us in the Quran (Surah As-Sajdah, Verse 11): “…The Angel of Death, who is set over you, will take your souls, then you shall be brought to your Lord”.

There are angels who torture the wrongdoers at the time of death: “If only you could see, when the angels take the souls of those who disbelieve, the angels are beating their faces and their backs.” (Qur’an Surah Al-Kahf, Verse 50)

6] Think of what the grave consequence of your sins could be:

You will have displeased Allah greatly, thereby losing out on multiple blessings during your life on earth.  You may have to face shame and dishonour. You may lose close friends. Upon realising your sin, you will feel pain, shame, grief, depression; you will experience negativity, loneliness and bitterness. You may have to live with knowing you broke someone’s marriage, thereby incurring the curse of the ex wife, or you may catch a sexually transmitted disease. And these are just some of the worldly consequences. The pain in the Hereafter to come will be incomparable to anything you could ever imagine.

7] Warn yourselves, there is no hiding; the angels are recording our every action, word and thought:

Allah Most High also tells us, “For each (person) there are angels in succession in front of him and behind him, who guard him by Allah’s command.”  (Qur’an, Surah Ar-Ra’d, Verse 11).

“And We have already created man and know what his soul whispers to him, and We are closer to him than [his] jugular vein when the two receivers [i.e. recording angels] receive [record each word and deed] seated on the right and on the left.  He does not utter any word except that with him is an observer prepared [to record]. (Qur’an, Surah Qaf, Verses 16-18)

“And indeed, [appointed] over you are keepers (angels who preserve the deeds of men in records) noble and recording, they know whatever you do.” (Qur’an, Surah Al-Infitaar, Verses 10-12)

8] Warn yourselves, that on the Day of Judgement, all our sins will be laid bare for all to see:

“Every person is held responsible for his [or her] deeds. On the Day of Resurrection We shall bring out for him a scroll which he will see spread open. (He will be ordered): Read your own record; It is sufficient that you judge yourself today.” (Surah Bani Israel 17:13-14)

We will feel embarrassment and shame comparable to none we have ever felt on earth. Imagine our family and friends seeing all the sins we have committed, imagine them seeing the zina that has been indulged in, all the sins of our bare flesh, every evil taken on by every limb, every look, every thought.  It will be as though our personal autobiographies have been caught on film from puberty till this day with our intentions displayed on a high definition cinema screen.

What are you thinking? Is your body not shivering with fear at the thought? I am sure it is and yet you have no idea how much you will be exposed on that day, unless Allah accepts your repentance through His Immense Mercy. If you are not shivering with fear, then my dear brother/sister, you are most definitely suffering from a spiritual disease of the heart and need help. (There is a cure though: turn back to Allah).

9] Fear the Sirat, The Bridge on the Day of Judgement:

The Messenger of Allah(sws) said about the bridge: “So the hooks over that bridge will be like the thorns of As-Sa-dan except that their greatness in size is only known to AllahThese hooks will snatch the people according to their deeds. Some people will be ruined because of their evil deeds, and some will be cut into pieces and fall down in Hell, but will be saved afterwards, when Allah has finished the judgments among His slaves, and intends to take out of the Fire whoever He wishes to take out from among those who used to testify that none had the right to be worshipped but Allah.” (Sahih Bukhari- Volume 8, Book 76, Number 577)

Also: Narrated by Abu Sa’id Al-Khudri: “We, the companions of the Prophet said, “O Allah’s Apostle! What is the bridge?‘ He said, “It is a slippery (bridge) on which there are clamps and (Hooks like) a thorny seed that is wide at one side and narrow at the other and has thorns with bent ends. Such a thorny seed is found in Najd and is called As-Sa’dan. Some of the believers will cross the bridge as quickly as the wink of an eye, some others as quick as lightning, a strong wind, fast horses or she-camels. So some will be safe without any harm; some will be safe after receiving some scratches, and some will fall down into Hell. The last person will cross by being dragged over the bridge.” (Sahih Bukhari- Volume 9, Book 93, Number 532)

If thats not bad enough, what if apart from wronging yourself, you have wronged someone else through your sin, and have not sincerely sought their forgiveness or they have not forgiven you? You will have to face them on the bridge in the Hereafter, as one of the questions we will be asked when crossing this bridge will be about the rights of humans, the rights of parents, and whether one took care of one’s relatives. So what if you used someone sexually and dumped her/him, what if you destroyed someone’s marriage, what about his/her ex? Have you sought their forgiveness?

10] Remember that in the court of Allah Most High we will not only receive our books with our deeds present but our bodily organs will also testify against us on that Day:

Allah says in Surah An-Nur, Verse 24: “On the Day when their tongues, their hands, and their legs or feet will bear witness against them as to what they used to do”.

“Till, when they reach it (Hell-fire), their hearing (ears) and their eyes, and their skins will testify against them as to what they used to do.  And they will say to their skins, “Why do you testify against us?” They will say: “Allah has caused us to speak, as He causes all things to speak, and He created you the first time, and to Him you are made to return”. And you have not been hiding against yourselves, lest your ears, and your eyes, and your skins testify against you, but you thought that Allah knew not much of what you were doing. And that thought of yours which you thought about your Lord, has brought you to destruction, and you have become (this Day) of those utterly lost!” (Qur’an, Surah Fussilat, Verse 20-23)

11] Remember the punishments that await those who have committed these sins:

The Prophet (saw) warned: “If one of you were to be stabbed in the head with a piece of iron it would be better for him than if he were to touch a woman whom it is not permissible for him to touch.” (Reported by al-Tabaraani; see also Saheeh al-Jaami, 5045).

This refers to the punishment for just touching, so how about worse deeds, such as embracing and kissing, and even worse kinds of illicit activity? Shudder at the thought!

Punishments liable for the one who confesses or is proven guilty of committing zina: The first revelation concerning the punishment of zina was that a woman guilty of zina was to be confined to her home until she died: “And those of your women who commit illegal sexual intercourse, take the evidence of four witnesses from amongst you against them; and if they testify, confine them (i.e. women) to houses until death comes to them or Allah ordains for them some (other) way”. (An-Nisaa, Verse: 15).

The next ayah says: “And the two persons (man and woman) among you who commit illegal sexual intercourse, punish them both”. (An-Nisaa, Verse16).

Allah (s.w.t) then revealed in Surah An-Nur, Verse 2 (which is known to be an abrogation of Ayah 15 in Surah an-Nisa): “The woman and the man guilty of illegal sexual intercourse, flog each of them with a hundred stripes. Let not pity withhold you in their case, in a punishment prescribed by Allah, if you believe in Allah and the Last Day. And let a party of the believers witness their punishment.”

The Messenger of Allah (sws) clarified this injunction by saying: “Take from me; Allah has made a decree for them.  A virgin (committing zina) with a virgin: one hundred lashes (for each) and exiling for one year (for the man).  And a married (committing zina) with a married: one hundred lashes and stoning.”(Saheeh Bukhari)

What are you thinking? That you can take the lashing? Just a few whips and that is? Wake up Oh Muslim, the shame and the pain would be unbearable! And the stoning would be the end of you!

All that is just a drop in the ocean, compared to the punishments for the sinner in the next life: The Prophet (sws) has told us of the punishment that those who commit zina will receive in their graves before the Hour begins, and that they will be punished with fire; narrated by al-Bukhaari (1320).

Allah Most High says in Surah Al-Furqan, Verses 68-69: “And those who invoke not any other ilah (god) along with Allah, nor kill such life as Allah has forbidden, except for just cause, nor commit illegal sexual intercourse – and whoever does this shall receive the punishment. The torment will be doubled to him on the Day of Resurrection, and he will abide therein in disgrace”.

12] Lower our gaze and cover our adornment in front of non-mahrams:

Allah advises us in Surah An-Nur, Verse 30-31: Verse 30: “Tell the believing men to lower their gaze (from looking at forbidden things), and protect their private parts (from illegal sexual acts, etc.). That is purer for them. Verily, Allah is All-Aware of what they do.”

Verse 31: “And tell the believing women to lower their gaze (from looking at forbidden things), and protect their private parts (from illegal sexual acts, etc.) and not to show off their adornment except only that which is apparent (like palms of hands or one eye or both eyes for necessity to see the way, or outer dress like veil, gloves, head-cover, apron, etc.), and to draw their veils all over Juyubihinna (i.e. their bodies, faces, necks and bosoms, etc.) and not to reveal their adornment except to their husbands, their fathers, their husband’s fathers, their sons, their husband’s sons, their brothers or their brother’s sons, or their sister’s sons, or their (Muslim) women (i.e. their sisters in Islam), or the (female) slaves whom their right hands possess, or old male servants who lack vigour, or small children who have no sense of the shame of sex. And let them not stamp their feet so as to reveal what they hide of their adornment. And all of you beg Allah to forgive you all, O believers, that you may be successful”.

The Prophet (saw) said, “…do not let a second look follow the first. The first look is allowed to you but not the second.” [Ahmad, Abu Dawood, at-Tirmidhi]. What this means is that the first look is by accident. If this happens then do not take a second look.

The Prophet (saw) also said that, “the eyes also commit adultery by looking at someone with lust.” [Bukhari]

13] Do not make our voices seductive or sweet in front of non-Mahrams:

This is done by lowering the voice and not flirting. As Allah tells the wives of Prophet Muhammad (saw) in Surah Al-Ahzab, Verse 32: “…do not be pleasant of speech, lest one in whose heart there is a disease should feel desire for you…”

14] Do not ever be alone with a non-mahram:

The Prophet (saw) forbade men and women from being alone together.  He (saw) said: “Never is a man alone with a woman except that Satan is the third party with them”.

This refers to unnecessary talking via email, text and phone as well.

15] Have faith in Allah that He will help us:

This is one of the most important points, but I purposely left it till the end as I wanted to remind you that the Prophet(saw) said ‘tie your camel first then put your trust in Allah’. Meaning, make the effort to implement the practical advice Allah has given you through the Quran and Sunnah, then have faith that He(swt) will help you through.  So do not think to yourself: ‘I’ll just go watch a movie with my boyfriend/girlfriend one more time, I can control myself, nothing will happen, I’m strong enough,’ and then expect nothing to happen – because you know it will and you’ll have no-one to blame but ‘yourself’. So do the right thing and avoid being alone with them in the first place and then make dua for Allah to make you strong to be steadfast in this.

The Sin of Adultery and Fornication
