The dignity of leaving a haram relationship for the sake of Allah is immense. At present, haram release and alienation among the youth have taken a terrible shape in our society.
As a result of the satanic relationship of so-called boyfriend and girlfriend or so-called just friend, adultery has become widespread in society. But it is strictly Haram in Islam.
Why is it important to Leave a Haram relationship?
Haram relationship causes manifold sins and manifold damage in Muslim life. The most important thing is that Allah has forbidden it. So it is important to come back from it.
Allah Ta’ala says in the Qur’an:
وَلَا تَقْرَبُوا الزِّنَىٰ ۖ إِنَّهُ كَانَ فَاحِشَةً وَسَاءَ سَبِيلً
“And do not even approach adultery. Indeed, it is an indecent act and an evil way.” [Surah Isra: 32]
Adultery is a punishable offence under the Islamic Penal Code. That is, if a married man or woman commits adultery and it is proved in a court of law on their confession or under certain conditions, their punishment is death by stoning.
And adultery between unmarried men and women is punishable by 100 lashes and exile for one year (currently jail or revocation of citizenship).
Therefore, those young people who have stepped into such a terrible forbidden path to meet the needs of their youth, driven by evil instincts or by Satan’s instigation, should repent from such abominable Satanic ways before the angel of death comes to them and fulfil their physical needs through marriage in the halal way prescribed by Allah. fill up
Leaving Haram relationship for the sake of Allah
Leaving the Haram relationship for the sake of Allah is a great blessing. Because God Almighty gives the Tawfik to whomever He wants to return from the sin of sin.
It is indeed the grace of Allah to protect us from illicit relations outside of marriage and all kinds of haram acts and to seek tawfiq to follow the righteous path through repentance.
This meaning is implicit in “La Hawla Wala Quwata Illa Billah”. One of its various meanings is:
“If Allah does not protect then it is not possible to escape from disobedience to Allah and if Allah does not help then it is not possible to do any act of obedience to Allah.” – Ibn Mas’ud RA. This meaning is described by [Sahih Sahih Muslim, 17/26]
So if someone leaves the Haram relationship for the sake of Allah and repents, then he should thank Allah because Allah saved him from this sin.
Leaving Haram Relationships in the Quran
In this way, if someone abandons a haram relationship or any other act out of fear of Allah and for the sake of Allah, then Allah will give him a better reward than that, Inshallah.
In this context, the hadith has been narrated that the Messenger of Allah, may God bless him and grant him peace, said,
“If you leave something for the sake of Allah, surely Allah will give you in return something better than that.” [Musnad Imam Ahmad: 21996)
Rewards for leaving haram relations and opinions of scholars
Allama bin Baz said about the tip of leaving a haram relationship for the sake of Allah
“Whosoever forsakes something out of fear of Allah, Allah will reward him with something better than it” (Allah says),
“And whoever fears Allah, Allah will make a way of salvation for him.” [Surah Talaq: 2]
Not only that, but for those who repent from their sins and do good deeds, Allah, not only forgives their past sins but transforms them into good deeds. Subhanallah!
“But those who repent, believe and do good deeds, Allah will replace their sins with good deeds. Allah is Forgiving, Most Merciful.” [Surah Al Furqan: 70]
It is to be noted that if a person has the desire and interest to continue the haram relationship or any other haram act or makes efforts to do so.
But if he is not able to carry it out due to some hindrance, he will not receive a good or good reward because of it, but a sin will be recorded in his deeds despite abandoning it.
Because he did not abandon it out of fear of Allah but because someone would see him or he would be caught, or he could not do it because of some other obstacle.
Therefore, even if he does not commit the haram act because of his intention, he will be considered guilty because Allah bestows karma on the servant according to his purpose.
