The fraud of the eyes

Allah knows the fraud of the eyes, and all that the breasts conceal.

[Qur’aan 40:19]

 

Remember, while you may be able to look at things which Allaah has forbidden without letting those around you know that you are looking at them, Allah will always know.

 

When you sit with your friends and a woman passes by and you steal a glance at her without them knowing, know that Allah knows full well what you are doing.

 

He also knows what you conceal inside your heart. You can fool the creation. You can hide your vices from the creation. However, nothing is hidden from Allaah.

Those who commit Zina

Confinement to the home was the punishment ordained for Zinaa in the early part of Islaam based on the following Verse of the Qur'aan.


Those who commit unlawful sexual intercourse of your women – bring against them four [witnesses] from among you. And if they testify, confine the guilty women to houses until death takes them or Allah ordains for them [another] way.

[Qur’aan 4:15]


Then, an Ijmaa occurred that confinement was abrogated.

 

 


Dishonoring those who indulged in Zinaa

 

They scholars differed if dishonoring (the ones who indulged in Zinaa) was abrogated or not. A group of scholars said it was abrogated. Mujaahid was one of those who held this opinion. He said the following:

 

And the two who commit it among you, dishonor them both

[Qur’aan 4: Portion of Verse 16]


has been abrogated by the Verse in Surah al-Nuur.

 

Another group held the view that dishonoring the ones who indulged in Zinaa has not been abrogated. Rather, it is to upheld side by side with lashing as the two do not contradict one another in any way. The one who indulges in Zinaa can be lashed as well as dishonored.

 

It is waajib, according to this group, that the two who indulged in Zinaa be dishonored. People should say to them you committed an evil and vile act and both of you opposed the Command of Allaah.

Beautiful sequence in Qur’aan

Say, "O People of the Scripture, why do you disbelieve in the verses of Allah while Allah is Witness over what you do?"

Say, "O People of the Scripture, why do you avert from the way of Allah those who believe, seeking to make it [seem] deviant, while you are witnesses [to the truth]? And Allah is not unaware of what you do."

[Qur’aan 3: Verses 98 and 99]


Allaah has denounced the People of the Book for two things in the above Verses:

 

He denounced them for their disbelief
He denounced them for pushing others into disbelief

 

Then, when He addressed the believers, He ordered them to have Taqwaa and Imaan.


O you who have believed, fear Allah as He should be feared and do not die except as Muslims [in submission to Him].

[Qur’aan 3:102]

 


Then, He ordered them to work to helping others towards Imaan and obedience (of Allaah).

 


And let there be [arising] from you a nation inviting to [all that is] good, enjoining what is right and forbidding what is wrong, and those will be the successful.

[Qur’aan 3:104]


And this is a beautiful sequence which conforms to the intellect.

Your good deeds are of no avail if you leave Islam

And it was already revealed to you and to those before you that if you should associate [anything] with Allah , your work would surely become worthless, and you would surely be among the losers."

[Qur’aan 39:65]

 

He who leaves Islaam will not benefit from the good deeds he did while he was a Muslim.

 

If a person dies while in the state of being a kaafir, he will abide in hell forever.

 

If a person had performed the obligatory Hajj of Islaam and then became an apostate and then became a Muslim again, then according to the Madhhab of al-Shaafi'i he does not have to perform the Hajj again while according to Maalik he has to perform the obligatory Hajj of Islaam again.

Ask protection against the evil of your Nafs

And I do not acquit myself. Indeed, the soul is a persistent enjoiner of evil, except those upon which my Lord has mercy. Indeed, my Lord is Forgiving and Merciful."

[Qur’aan 12:53]

 

The Nafs orders you to do that which it desires even if the Pleasure of Allaah is not in it. Only those who Allaah has mercy on are saved from following the desires of their Nafs. Only they are able to keep themselves from following the evil their Nafs commands them to indulge in.

 

Make dua Allaah has mercy on you and keeps you safe from the evil of your Nafs.

 

Abu Rashid Al-Hubrani said:

"I came to 'Abdullah bin 'Amr and said to him: 'Report something to me that you heard from the Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam).' So he set forth before me a scroll and said: 'This is what the Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) wrote for me.'" He said: "So I looked in it and found in it: 'Indeed, Abu Bakr As-Siddiq, may Allah be pleased with him, said: "O Messenger of Allah, teach me what to say at morning and afternoon."

He said: "O Abu Bakr, say: 'O Allah, Creator of the heavens and the earth, Knower of the unseen and the seen, there is none worthy of worship except You, Lord of everything and its Owner, I seek refuge in You from the evil of my NAFS and from the evil of Shaitaan and his Shirk, or that I should do some evil to myself or bring it upon a Muslim


(Allāhumma fāṭiras-samāwāti wal-arḍi, `ālimal-ghaibi wash-shahādati, lā ilāha illā anta, rabba kulli shai’in wa malīkahu, a`ūdhu bika min sharri nafsī wa min sharrish-shaiṭāni wa sharakihi, wa an aqtarifa `alā nafsī sū’an, aw ajurrahu ilā muslim).'""

[Jaami’ al-Tirmidhi Hadith No. 3529]


Arabic of Dua

اللَّهُمَّ فَاطِرَ السَّمَوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ عَالِمَ الْغَيْبِ وَالشَّهَادَةِ لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ أَنْتَ رَبَّ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ وَمَلِيكَهُ أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ شَرِّ نَفْسِي وَمِنْ شَرِّ الشَّيْطَانِ وَشَرَكِهِ وَأَنْ أَقْتَرِفَ عَلَى نَفْسِي سُوءًا أَوْ أَجُرَّهُ إِلَى مُسْلِمٍ
