Once a man from the Bani Israeel passed by a sand dune at a time when people were suffering with hunger due to drought and famine. He thought to himself: “Had I possessed food equivalent to the granules of sand in this sand dune, I would have distributed every bit of it amongst these people to relieve them of their hunger.” Allah Ta’ala sent revelation to the Nabi of that time: “Inform that man that Allah Ta’ala has acknowledged and appreciated your noble intention and has hence recorded for you the reward of spending that amount of food in charity.” (Mirqaat-ul-Mafateeh, vol.1, pg.100)

There was a woman by the name of Hind al-Khus al-Iyadiyyah. She was one of the wealthy women in the pre Islamic times, well known for her intelligence, wit, eloquence and words of wisdom. Inspite of being a woman of position and honour amongst her people, she committed adultery with her slave boy. People asked her: “Of all people, what made you commit adultery with your slave boy whereas you are a leading woman of your tribe? Why not with a free person instead?” So she replied: “The factors which prompted me to commit adultery and that too with a slave, were two. One was that we had easy accessibility to each other due to living in the same place, and the second factor was long chats.” (Risaalatul Mustarshideen – Pg: 177)

Lesson: Being in privacy with strange men or casually chatting with them may eventually lead one to falling into the most despicable of actions and thereby bringing her perpetual disgrace. These two factors are the highly inflammable ingredients that cause explosion and destruction.
