Anything that involves "penetration of head of male penis into female vagina (with or without ejaculation)" would constitute zina requiring Hadd punishment. This has been agreed upon by scholars (of Ahlus sunnah). The things that lead to zina such as touching, kissing, and rubbing the private parts together without penetrating do not come under the ruling ...

Chatting with guys online will do no good to you. It is just not permissible in Islam. If you think you need to attract a good Muslim man, than chatting with boys won't help, nor will following them on Twitter. Get closer to Allah, purify yourself , so that He will purify one for you. Start wearing an Abayah. Many good Muslim men search for women who veil ...

Killing a Muslim unlawfully is a serious matter and a grave crime. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): “And whoever kills a believer intentionally, his recompense is Hell to abide therein; and the Wrath and the Curse of Allaah are upon him, and a great punishment is prepared for him.”[al-Nisa’ 4:93] al-Bukhaari (6355) narrated from Ibn ‘...

We are not to look at women, and are to lower our gaze and this is clear in the 30th verse of Surat Annoor: Tell the believing men to lower their gaze as well as this Hadith: I asked the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam) about (the Islamic ruling on) accidental glance (i.e., at a woman one is not Islamically allowed to look at) and ...

Lets start with touching, as that sounds like the most innocent of actions you've described in your question: It is haraam for a man to touch the hand of a girl who is not his mahram, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “For one of you to be stabbed in the head with an iron needle is better for him than for him to ...

Generally, it's not allowed for a believer to marry anyone who has had premarital sex. Allah said in Surah an-Nisa 24:3 = "The fornicator does not marry except a fornicator or polytheist, and none marries her except a fornicator or a polytheist, and that has been made unlawful to the believers." However, if the person makes toubah and asks for ...

Can a muslim man marry himself First of all you should know that a Muslim man can marry himself without any waly even if his parents do not approve! But he should choose the right woman as our Messenger (peace be upon him) told us how or which one to chose (see for example this hadith narrated by Jabir (May Allah be pleased with him) or this one narrated ...

Perhaps you may look at the act in a more significant manner. Meaning... looking at anyone, regardless of the sex or sexual preference, is not haraam. A man looking at a man, a woman looking at a man, a boy looking at a man ... these acts of looking are not haraam in any way. It is the MANNER in which one looks, that can become haraam. So, we can conclude, ...

Abu Hurairah Radhiallaahu ta'ala anhu heard from our Prophet Sallallaahu 'alaihi wasallam that our Prophet Sallallaahu 'alaihi wasallam said: All the people of my Ummah would get pardon for their sins except those who publicise them. And (it means) that a servant should do a deed during the night and tell the people in the morning that he has done so and ...

Islam is indeed against adultery, and there are rules that govern these conditions according to the applicable classification: Walad al-zina (Arabic: ولد الزنا): offspring from adultery where both parents are known and acknowledge their parenthood. Walad al-mulā'ana (Arabic: ولد الملاعنة): offspring of curse-invoking where husband accuses wife of committing ...

The evidence for the hadd of zina on which there is consensus is the testimony of four witnesses (Quran 4:15) or confession ( Hadith on the confession of Ma’iz bin Malik and the woman). The Hanafis and Shafis have limited the admissible evidence to this. The Malikis have also included pregnancy of a woman in the absence of marriage as admissible evidence ...

Honor killing is not allowed in Islam, because it isn't the ordered punishment in Quran. A Muslim is not allowed to apply a different punishment other than the one ordered in Quran. Recm (stoning) was only done once to a woman who herself confessed her sin. At that time, the ayats which contained law for punishment of adultery hadn't been delivered yet. So, ...

It may not be ZINA but it definitely leads to it. @Hanif has already explained a beautiful hadeeth. And let's look at another hadeeth: The prophet (S) said, "It is better for you to be stabbed in the head with an iron needle than to touch the hand of a woman who is not permissible to you." Source: At-Tabarani in Al-Kabir, #486. Sheikh Al-Albaani stated ...

Homosexuality is an invention of the 19th century. Before the 19th century people had words for specific sexual acts, but did not have words for forms of so-called sexual orientation. The Arabic word lūṭī لوطي refers to the city of Lot (Sodom in the Bible); for the practice of the people of Sodom Arabic uses the derived noun liwāṭ لواط , which is the exact ...

Zina is not penetration only. There's different kinds of zina. The zina of eyes, which is looking at things one should not be looking at (porn, etc.), the zina of hand, which is touching that that is not allowed (masurbation, etc.), the zina of tongue, which is talking about all the unlawful sexual stuff one desires and then the zina of the private parts, ...

Bismillah, One of the main things that we as Muslims should do is to read the Tafseer of the Qur'an to have a better understanding of the verses and the rules. The verse that you referred to in your question is in Surat An-Nur (verse #3) is related to the previous verse in the same Sura. The adulteress and adulterer should be flogged a hundred lashes ...

A fast answer (here the basical references al-Muwatta' 1, 2, 3, 4 sunan abi Dawod, jami' at-Tirmidhi 1, 2 and sahih Muslim) as I'm busy! The ruling among scholars is what ever makes ghusl necessary (because of marital intercourse or a wet dream) makes the punishment (for adultery) necessary. Ibn Abi Zayd al-Qayrawani said in his Risala: Legal ...

The first thing you need to bare in mind is that Allah is the most forgiving and he is capable of forgiving any sin as long as repentance was a sincere one: Truly, Allah loves those who turn unto Him in repentance and loves those who purify themselves. [Quran, 2:222] Although sincere repentance may cause your sins to be forgiven, it isn't an easy task ...

Majority opinion is that it is permissible to marry the person with whom one has committed Zina, provided that the person is not a habitually unchaste person and that they both sincerely repent of their sin and that a period equal to iddah has passed since the unlawful intercourse. إنّ من زنى بامرأة فله أن يتزوجها ولغيره أن يتزوّجها وهو قول ابن ...

Zina is never allowed period. Even if you're poor, you still have chastity and purity to your name. Don't ruin that too by being both poor AND impure (unchaste), giving people even more reasons to reject you. OP: "in order to maintain our status I can't marry someone outside our status circle. Now I have to get rich no matter what otherwise I will never ...

There's no time frame, but both of you must repent to Allah(SWT) and never commit that sin again. You and your potential cannot be alone together privately anywhere and at anytime.

In the Qur'an, there is a concept called zina (زنا‬), which refers to both fornication and adultery. In the early days of Islam, the punishment for zina was confinement to the house or corporal punishment. The woman would be confined to the house until she died or another piece of legislation came into force. The man would receive corporal punishment. ...

Yes they can. Take the examples from Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). The first wife of Prophet is Khadijah bint Khuwaylid (May Allah be pleased with her) who is a non-virgin. Respectively Prophet's 10 out of 11 wives were non-virgins except for Aisha (May Allah be pleased with her). Islam never prevented Muslims from marrying non-virgin Muslims if the marriage ...

In this world if proven such crime is committed. If married, then death by stoning. If unmarried, then 100 lashes. However, God is very forgiving and one can repent as soon as possible. In the hereafter, it's burning in hell where the fire is almost 70 times strong than earth and locks/chains maybe attached to parts of body for extra punishment. This is ...

If you repent sincerely and refrain from such acts, Allah will forgive you Inshallah.

Indeed, Allah forgives all sins. Indeed, it is He who is the Forgiving, the Merciful."...
