Forbidden Ways of Bed Relations


Last Updated on Monday, 01 September 2014 14:52

نِسَاؤُكُمْ حَرْثٌ لَّكُمْ فَأْتُوا حَرْثَكُمْ أَنَّى شِئْتُمْ

“Your women are your fields ( where your seeds are planted), so approach your tilling fields as you desire ( from any direction as long as the husband  enters the front passage only, so that children can be conceived ).” (Surah Baqarah v223)

The reference to enter one’s tillage denotes that the woman may only be entered from that passage which will serve to produce children, since she would otherwise not be a productive field. Only a foolish farmer will waste his seeds in an area that is non productive. Living in a shameless society today, immoral and disgusting ways of satisfying man’s carnal desires have become acceptable and the norm of the day. It is only Islam that protects and stops us from the forbidden and shameless anal and oral sex.


Relations during Menstruation

وَيَسْأَلُونَكَ عَنِ الْمَحِيضِ قُلْ هُوَ أَذًى فَاعْتَزِلُوا النِّسَاءَ فِي الْمَحِيضِ وَلَا تَقْرَبُوهُنَّ حَتَّى يَطْهُرْنَ فَإِذَا تَطَهَّرْنَ فَأْتُوهُنَّ مِنْ حَيْثُ أَمَرَكُمُ اللَّـهُ

“They ask you (O Muhammad [sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam]) concerning menstruation. Say, it is impure, so leave (intercourse with) women during (their period of menstruation and do not go unto them (have bed relations with your wives) until they are clean (the menstrual cycle is complete). So when they have cleansed themselves properly, then go unto them from where Allah has ordered you (from the front passage only).” (Surah Baqarah v222)

The Clothing of Couples


Last Updated on Sunday, 04 May 2014 16:48

هُنَّ لِبَاسٌ لَّكُمْ وَأَنتُمْ لِبَاسٌ لَّهُنَّ

“They (the women) are clothing for you and you are clothing for them.” (Surah Baqarah v187)

This comparison indicates that between husband and wife there is a very strong and deep relationship. This is only possible through the mercy of Allah Ta‘ala. By virtue of this intense relationship, it now becomes easy for the couple to fulfill each other’s rights. The bond between husband and wife is strong, it is as though two hearts and two people have become one living being. Just as clothes are attached to us and become part of us, so does husband and wife become part of each other. The second comparison is just as clothes cover the body and conceal any scar and blemishes, likewise the couple conceal each other’s faults. They do not publicize and expose the wrongs of each other.


Jaadoo (Black Magic)

وَمَا هُم بِضَارِّينَ بِهِ مِنْ أَحَدٍ إِلَّا بِإِذْنِ اللَّـهِ وَيَتَعَلَّمُونَ مَا يَضُرُّهُمْ وَلَا يَنفَعُهُمْ وَلَقَدْ عَلِمُوا لَمَنِ اشْتَرَاهُ مَا لَهُ فِي الْآخِرَةِ مِنْ خَلَاقٍ وَلَبِئْسَ مَا شَرَوْا بِهِ أَنفُسَهُمْ لَوْ كَانُوا يَعْلَمُونَ

“They could not bring harm through it (black magic) to anyone without the will of Allah Ta‘ala. They used to learn what harmed them and did no good to them; and they certainly knew that he who chooses it has no share in the Hereafter. And, indeed, evil is the thing for which they sold themselves away. If only they knew!” (Surah Baqara v102)

In this verse Allah Ta‘ala speaks about the evil of black magic and reprimands the Jews for getting involved in it. Practising magic is a major sin and if it involves words of kufr (disbelief) then it will lead a person to becoming a kaafir (disbeliever). May Allah Ta‘ala save us from practising or viewing all forms of magic. Furthermore, Allah Ta‘ala very clearly mentions that the magic cannot have any effect without His will. Hence we need to strengthen our faith in Him and insha-Allah nothing will harm us.


Wish for Death

قُلْ إِن كَانَتْ لَكُمُ الدَّارُ الْآخِرَةُ عِندَ اللَّـهِ خَالِصَةً مِّن دُونِ النَّاسِ فَتَمَنَّوُا الْمَوْتَ إِن كُنتُمْ صَادِقِينَ ﴿٩٤﴾ وَلَن يَتَمَنَّوْهُ أَبَدًا بِمَا قَدَّمَتْ أَيْدِيهِمْ وَاللَّـهُ عَلِيمٌ بِالظَّالِمِينَ ﴿ ٩٥﴾

“Say, if the home of the Hereafter is reserved exclusively for you and for no one else (as you claim), then wish for death if you are truthful. However, they shall never wish for death because of the deeds that their hands have sent ahead.”(Surah Baqarah- v94-95)
