salam! zina is one of the most heinous and deadliest of sins. its enormity can be gauged from the fact that it has often been conjoined in the qur’an with the gravest of all sins like shirk.
the enormity of this sin is no small measure due to its dire consequences affecting individuals, families, and communties. among these are that it entails infidelity and erodes the trust and tranquility that are the foundations of a fulfilling family life; it dissipates one’s source of income; it undermines peace at home; it corrodes the purity of one’s soul and hence destroys one’s faith; finally, it exposes the person to the wrath of Allah, hence resulting in eternal damnation (hell).
abu hurayrah [r.a] reports that my prophet [saw] said: “no one commits adultery while still remaining a believer, for faith is more precious unto Allah than such an evil act!” in another version, it is stated, “when a person commits adultery he casts away from his neck the bond that ties him to Islam; if, however, he repents, Allah will accept his repentance” (if only He wills). aren’t you scared?
during [saw]’s ascension to the heavens, he was escorted by jubril [a.s] and shown different types of punishments served out to those guilty of various major offenses. while recounting the various scenes shown to him, he said, “then jubril took me and we passed by a group of people with terribly inflated bodies emitting worst foul smells just like that of open sewers (imagine smelling like a suck away); when i enquired who they were, he replied, “these are those who commit adultery!”
my prophet [saw] said: “faith is like a shirt that Allah places on those He chooses; but whoever commits adultery his shirt will be taken off from him; if he were to repent sincerely, Allah will place it back on him.” are you sure He will accept your repentance?
and don’t blame the devil, for it will deny ever tempting you. may Allah guide us and bless us with great spouses as soon as possible. and whoever has such bad intentions, may Allah change it with something better; idan kuma bazai chanza ba toh Allah yasa wasu subi kan duk matan gidansu (preferrably barayi) duka harda mamanshi gaba daya suyi ciki a lokaci daya kafin shi ya isar da nashi muguntar, amin!
