Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. I am a teenager living in the west. I want to know whether things such as hugging fall under the sin of adultery or are they considered major sins. Jazakum Allah khayran.
Some women go unmarried throughout life due to certain social factors against their will. Are these women allowed to have sex outside the wedlock in any way at any time of their life?
Spending a night with another lady with the knowledge of the wife???
Dear Sheikh, As-Salamu `Alaykum wa Rahmatu Allah wa Barakatuh. I know some person who does not feel the heinousness of the crime of Zina (adultery), how can I make him realize the gravity of the sin? Jazakum Allah Khayran.
As-Salamu `alaykum. My question is about the punishment for Zina (adultery) in Islam. According to Islam, there should be fo ur eye-witnesses, and these people should be known for their honesty. My question is that today we can prove whether or not adultery has occurred by using various laboratory tests (i.e., DNA). So, should Muslims use such tests to decide whether someone is guilty or not?
asalam alikum, i m married to my my husband, last 17 years.Three years back my husband went to a foreign country for a job.He stayed there for two and a half years leaving me with his three kids.In that time i fell in love with another unmarried man,and allah forbid we committed zina.he wanted to marry me but i did'nt want to leave my husband because of my daughters.After committing the sin i realised how much my husband loves me and i feel ashamed of what i have done.i feel some people too have come to know of the relationship i had with that man.I was involved so much that i still have those memories in my mind and i feel that when my husband comes to me,i feel guilty of cheating him.i want to forget the past and what do i do if people have come to know about my past,how do i face them?i have already started reciting istighfar,giving charity.i want to become a good and chaste woman and live only for the sake of allah.
As-Salam `Alaykum. This question might seem a little awkward, but I know I am speaking for a lot of young people. Abstaining from sex is a really tough job at this age (18 and above). In the Prophet's days, one could get married and start business at the age of 17, but nowadays this has become impossible because one can't start a business at that age and definitely can't get married. They had it a lot easier then. With the changing times, we walk about seeing women dressed in attractive clothes with the help of Shaytan (by not lowering the gaze). This is not our fault. It is because we don't have wives, for if we did we would easily turn to our wives.My question is: “Can fornication in this situation still be punished for as it was then? If the punishment is received in this life (100 lashes) will there still be punishment in the Hereafter? Also, when one tries to stop but can't and finally gets married and totally stops, and his needs are satisfied all the time, he can repent and never do it again. What is your view? I don't plan to take part in any of this but I need to know how to answer some peoples' questions.
Could you please tell me the ruling on homosexuality: sodomy and lesbianism. And if it is haram, what is the punishment for it in Islam?
Dear scholars, as-Salamu `alaykum. I have heard that the punishment specified for the person who commits adultery is 80 lashes. I would like to ask, from where did you get the punishment of stoning to death. Moreover, if you say that it is based on the Sunnah, I can say that how to depend on Sunnah in this regard. Isn’t it a fact that the Qur’an is the source of legislation for all Muslims? Jazakum Allah khayran.
