Summarised Jumu’ah Bayaan:


The Holy Qur’ân states:
"And do not go near zina. It is indeed a shameful and an evil path." (Surah Al Isrâ’, Ayah 32)

"The woman and the man guilty of fornication - lash each of them with a hundred lashes. Let not compassion move you in their case, in a matter prescribed by Allâh, if you believe in Allâh and the Last day and let a group of believers witness their punishment". (Surah Al-Nûr, Ayah 2)

The Holy Prophet Sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam said:
"…adultery of the eyes is when it looks at that which is Harâm; adultery of the ears is when it listens to that which is Harâm; adultery of the tongue is when it utters Harâm; adultery of the hands is when it touches Harâm; adultery of the feet is when it walks towards Harâm; adultery of the heart is when it desires and hopes for that which is Harâm; adultery of the private parts is when it succumbs to that which is Harâm."

From the above Hadîth it is clear and apparent that Islam forbids not only the act of adultery but all acts that invite and encourage the act of zina. Islam shuts the door to the root of every evil.

Touching a Strange Woman with Lust
It has been reported that the person who touches a strange woman with lust, on the day of resurrection his hands will be shackled to his neck. If he kissed her, his lips will be cut off and thrown in the fire of Jahannum. If he committed adultery then his thighs will bear witness to it and testify against him on the Day of Qiyâmat. It will say to him, "I was mounted for something impermissible." Allâh will look at him with anger. The flesh of his face will fall off and he will proclaim "What did I do?" His tongue will testify and say, "I spoke to whom it was not permissible for you to talk to." His legs will testify, "I walked towards something unlawful." His hands will testify "I held something which was prohibited for you." His eyes will testify "I gazed at unlawful things." His private parts will testify "I committed the act." An angel will say, "I heard it" while another will say, "I’ve written it down." Allâh will say "I was aware of it and I concealed it." Then Allâh will say to the angels "Let him taste of my punishment. My anger has increased on one who has no shame." (Kitâb-ul-Kaba’ir)

Hadîth Warns Parents
Rasûlullah Sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam has said: "When he attains maturity get him married. If he attains maturity and his father does not get him married, (and as a result commits a sin,) this sin falls upon the father."

Rasûlullah Sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam Speaks to Youth
Rasûlullah Sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam said: "O young men, who amongst you can afford to get married, should marry, for this will be a means of restraining the eyes from casting an evil glance and keeping one pure and chaste." (Mishkât)

The Harms of Zina [Adultery/Fornication] are Manifold
1. Allâh Ta’âla becomes very angry.
2. The reckoning in the hereafter will be very severe.
3. The person will enter Jahannam.
4. The barakâh (blessing) of his rizq is lost.
5. He is deprived from doing good.
6. He becomes hated and cursed in the eyes of the common people.
7. The nation involved in Zina will be afflicted with droughts.
8. The spreading of diseases and plagues.
9. The destruction of the locality.
10. The cause of earthquakes.
11. The birth of illegitimate children.
It is reported that once Nabî Sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam said, "O Muslims, fear adultery as it has six consequences. Three in this world and three in the hereafter. As for the worldly consequences; spiritual light from the face vanishes, life is shortened and a person becomes poverty-stricken. As for the hereafter; it causes Allâh’s displeasure, difficult reckoning and it obligates the punishment of Jahannam." (Kitâb-ul- Kabair.)

The Result of Young People of Marriageable Age who Do Not Get Married
When there is no taq’wa (fear of Allâh) in an unmarried person’s life, the passions of such a person are fulfilled in one of the following ways:
1. Having unlawful relationships with men or women.
2. Having mistresses.
3. Visiting escort agencies and prostitutes.
4. Frequenting clubs or discos.
5. Reading pornographic material.
6. Gazing at women with lust.

The Solutions
To make nikâh. Nikâh in Islâm is very simple, easy and full of barakâh.
If one cannot make nikâh due to some shar’î reason, he/she should resort to the following:
1. Keep fast.
2. Protect the eyes from looking at strange men/women.
3. To avoid mixed gatherings.
4. To have the thought that Allâh is at all times watching and aware of your actions.
5. To refrain from sitting and working in privacy with strange women.
6. Males should fulfill the rights of their wives i.e. looking after them. This will prevent women from treading the wrong path.
7. To be wary of the dictates of the nafs.
8. Women should fulfill their husband’s rights and should not make excessive demands on them.
9. To ask Allâh for protection from disobedience.

A Youth Seeks Permission to Commit Adultery
A youth (from the outlying regions) came to Nabî Sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam and said: "Please permit me to commit adultery." The Companions of the Nabî Sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam took this very ill and were enraged at his words; but Nabî Sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam said to him: "Come nearer to me. Would you like anyone to commit adultery with your mother?" He said: "Not at all." Nabî Sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam said: "Then other people will also never tolerate such a shameful act with their mothers." Then Nabî Sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam asked him the same question about his sister, aunt, etc. And he answered each time in the negative. Then Nabî Sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam put his hand on his chest and prayed: "O Allâh! Purify his heart, forgive his sins and guard him against adultery." The reporters say that, after this, nothing was more hateful to him than adultery.
