Illicit Love #2 https://missmuslimah9.wordpress.com/2018/01/11/illicit-love-2/
EVERY SOUL SHALL TASTE DEATH.
There is no escaping from death. Once you taste death, you won’t taste life in this world again. How many times do we hear of instances where young girls and boys have passed away. Some have been murdered. Some have been martyred in other ways. Some have passed away due to accidents. May Allah save us from sudden deaths. Aameen. However, what i would like to divulge into today is not of death itself, but the fact that (Allah Forbid) we are engaged in the unlawful act of adultery, courting, dating etc and death has to overtake us. What a pitiful state that would be! May Allah save one and all!
Many youngsters have passed away while they were in a haraam relationship. How can we take the risk and get involved in such acts when we do not know when and how death will take us.
We do not know the extent of Allah’s Power therefore we should fear Him and avoid getting involved in such actions.
Haven’t we heard of girls who have destroyed themselves literally, due to the fact that their lover didn’t return their love? Illicit love relationships can lead to such problems. Many suffer depression and nervous breakdowns just for one boy!
O Muslim Ummah! Keep yourselves chaste for a marriage that has true and pure bliss…
Really though, when one is in a relationship what happiness does it bring? How much of happiness can it bring? He buys you red roses..they die. He buys you chocolate, it goes in your stomach, mixes, and turns into faeces at the end of the day. When you are perpetrating the actual act of zina, your imaan at that time isn’t intact. You become negligent of Allah Ta’ala.
Instead of Allah Ta’ala saying, “do not commit zina…” Allah says, “do not go near zina..”. Cuddling, hugging and kissing your significant other are actions that lead to zina. The Qur’aan isn’t ambiguous regarding this. The verse is clearcut. One can very well understand the connotation of going near to zina. All of this so-called love and infatuation is temporary.
It is mentioned in Moulana Yunus Patel rahmatullah alayhs kitaab that the second prescription is to immediately think: what will be my condition if I have to suddenly suffer paralysis, or I am suddenly seized by the angel of death, or if my sins become exposed? What will be my condition if Allah Ta’ala reveals all these secrets?
Keep thinking of the consequences and repercussions. Anything can happen
. Nothing is in our control. Nafs and shaytaan will constantly encourage us to sin, they will beautify sin for us in every way possible just so that we can be distanced from Allah Ta’ala…
Another prescription which the spiritual doctors prescribe is that of visualising the beloved. Visualise him/her in the 80th year of their life, with their back bent over, with no teeth, with white hair, ready for the grave.
Hadhrat Moulana Hakeem Akhtar sb rahmatullahi alayh had mentioned this reality so aptly, to create aversion in the heart for any illicit beloved;
“Why attach the heart to that…which will become…a decaying..a decaying, rotting corpse..”
Sometimes thoughts enter the mind regarding the beloved to an extent where it leads to fantasizing. Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi rahimahullah said, “at that time, think of somebody who, in your opinion, is really, really ugly and repulsive, with mucus coming out of the nose, with phlegm dribbling out of the mouth, with pus flowing out from sores on the body, and so forth.”
