A Sahabi radhiyAllahu anhu said, “Save yourselves from adultery, for it has six inherent evils. Three evils pertain to this world.:
- The blessings of sustenance are decreased because of it
- The adulterer is deprived of goodness
- The perpetrators become despised and accursed in the eyes of others.
Three evils pertain to the Aakhirah:
- It invites the severe anger of Allah Ta’ala. What refuge is there for the person with whom Allah is angry?
- Because of adultery, a severe and strict reckoning will be taken of the perpetrator
- Adultery enters the perpetrator into Jahannum.
