Verily it is a faahishah (a great sin) and an evil way (that leads to Hell unless Allah forgives)” [Al-Israa’ 17:32]

Sharee’ah blocks all the ways and means that could lead to zina, by enjoining hijab and lowering the gaze, and by forbidding being alone with a non-mahram woman, etc. The married man who commits adultery deserves the worst kind of punishment, which is stoning to death, so that he may taste the results of his deeds and so that every part of his body may suffer just as every part of his body enjoyed the illicit liaison. The fornicator who was previously unmarried is to be punished with the maximum number of lashes mentioned in Sharee’ah, which is 100 lashes, in addition to the scandal of this punishment being witnessed by a group of believers, and the humiliation of being banished from his city and the scene of his crime for one full year.

In Barzakh, the punishment for men and women who were guilty of zina is that they will be in an oven whose top is narrow and whose bottom is wide, with a fire beneath it, and they will be naked therein. When the heat of the fire increases, they will scream and rise up until they nearly come out of the top, then when the fire decreases, they will fall back down. This will repeated over and over until the onset of the Hour.

What is even worse is when a man continues to commit adultery even when he grows old, death approaches and Allah gives him the opportunity to repent. Abu Hurairah reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “There are three to whom Allah will not speak on the Day of Resurrection, nor praise, nor look at; theirs will be a painful torment: an old man who commits zina, a king who lies, and a poor man who is arrogant.” (Reported by Muslim, 1/102-103).

Among the worst of incomes are the earnings of a prostitute which she takes before committing zina, and the immoral woman who earns her living by selling herself is deprived of having her prayers answered when the gates of heaven are opened at midnight. (The hadith is in Sahih Al-Jami’, 2971) Being in need or being poor is not acceptable excuses for transgressing the limits set by Allah. There is an old saying that the free woman would rather starve than eat by displaying her breasts, so how about her private parts then?

Nowadays all the doors of immorality have been opened, and Shaytaan and his supporters have made it very easy for people to commit sin. This has been followed by the spread of tabarruj (wanton display) and unveiling among women, people allowing their gazes to wander to things they should not look at, an increase in mixing between the sexes, the popularity of immoral magazines and lewd films, increased travel to corrupt countries and the establishment of a market for prostitution, an increase in the violation of honor, and an increase in the number of illegitimate births and abortions. O Allah, we ask you to show us Your mercy and to protect us from immorality; we ask You to purify our hearts and to keep our private parts chaste, and to place a barrier between us and what is haram.

Sodomy (Homosexuality)

Sodomy, or intercourse between two males, was the crime of the people of Lut. Allah says (interpretation of the meaning): “And (remember) Lut, when he said to his people: ‘You commit Al-faahishah (sodomy - the worst sin) which none has preceded you in (committing) among the ‘aalameen (mankind and jinns). Verily,
