  1. Asalaam alaikum,

    In the Holy Qur'an, Allah (swt) reveals that Muslims are not to come near to fornication. All the things you have described are great sins of the body affecting the purity of the soul. You must leave these actions if you are committing them, plead for forgiveness and take the steps of repentance. The first aspect of doing this is breaking off the forbidden relationship with the non-mahram.

    Brother the sooner u leave this habbit the better its for you ! and the best way is to leave the habit is do not be awake at night. because being awake at night will invoke the shaytan inside you and make u commit things which you didnt percieve and also last part of night is very important for tahajjud and prayers are accepted at this moment.. Usually if you are awake shaitan will detour u from this moment and indulge you in sins

    As above bro/sis said that precaution is better than cure. indeed

    May Allah swt be with you and protect u ameen

  3. Salamu'alaikum,

    These are the tools that lead to fornication. Masturbation is Haraam as we find in the fataawaa of the Ulama which they get from a Saheeh Hadith. And committing this sin leads one closer to Zina. Hence, one should try hard to avoid it and gain the Pleasure of The Creator.
    Friendship with a non Maahram is what leads to the thoughts which lead to masturbation.
    Islam cuts the roots of evil instead of just saying do not doo evil. This is why Allah has forbidden the doors to evil from being breached these are the boundaries set by Allah. Whoever crosses them should repent at once, in order to gain the Pleasure of Allah Subhaanahu wa Ta'aala.

  4. As salamu aliekum!

    Jazakallah for all the responses.

    I would like to know whether all this can be a SYNONYM of FORNICATION?

    If not, how grievous a sin are these? Equally? Sagheera or Kabeera?

  5. I am sorry... I am very much troubled and confused.

    Could any one please explain me in some detail what zina is? Does mere hand-shaking, hugging amount to zina?

  6. Dear brothers and sisters As salamu aliekum!

    I am need of your duas. Please ask Allah to help me overcome my grief and please ask Him help me fulfil the greates desire of my life. Please all of you pray for me.

    • Brother Alpha, we've published some posts on homosexuality and how to deal with those feelings. Please search our archives. The main advice I have to you is to never watch pornography, and do not associate with homosexuals or people with those tendencies. It sounds like you are young, but when you are old enough for marriage then do not hesitate to find a good wife, Insha'Allah.

    • Humans as all of Gods created creatures have a sexuality which is NORMAL,GOD created us and if we did not have feelings of sexuality we would not exist as the human race would simply perish.Masturbation in the privacy of your own home therefore is a healthy act that surely has to be the better choice than fornication which could cause many problems including destruction of family structure, contraction of sexually transmitted diseases.Masturbation releases stress, tension, depression,desire to slip and commit a even worse act like fornication therefore it is necessary in order to remain a balanced human being. Don't you think that masturbation is definitely better than ie: raping someone or molesting children if the sexual urge becomes that uncontrollable ? I can NOT imagine that GOD / ALLAH would create us with all he made us including the desire for sexual gratification if then he would punish us for acting upon the urge of releasing this tension in order to remain a functional, psychologically balanced human being.Men in Islam have even gone so far in many Mosques as to forbid women to enter the main prayer hall for worship to Allah because they claim women distract them from praying ? Think!! If they were first of all coming to the Mosque to pray their thoughts would not even be on the females who are totally covered,quiet without perfume and in the back behind the men yet still they are seen as a distraction ! If all these men or officials that made this rule of excluding the women to pray behind them had a normal sexuality,they would see no need to go against the very word of ALLAH and his message the Holy Quran and the teachings of Prophet Muhammad who clearly said not to forbid their women to come to the Mosque to pray but yet they literally exile them into side rooms under the pretense of their "privacy" Do you not think that this injustice / sin against women could be prevented if they,the men were sexually more balanced and therefore psychologically more healthy in their attitude toward their females ?? Masturbation is HEALTHY and NORMAL,those that walk around HOT and in constant turmoil with themselves over their desires and sexuality are ticking time bombs for they are under constant tension.THINK !! Sexuality is a part of a human being,not shameful,not dirty in any way but NORMAL !! It is man himself that makes it into something it should not be.Food for thought for all the confused. : ) Go home,close your doors and release your tensions so that the rest of the world does not have to deal with your abnormal disruptive behavior.Just look at all the sick things humans do to control their womens urge like the practice of FGM !! SICK, SICK,and all to curbe sexual desire,SEX is NOT dirty !!! It is asolutely necessary and NORMAL !! You guys that practice this weird stuff are ABNORMAL !!!
