Fornication

Description: The Prophet (S) said, 'Allah's wrath is indeed severe on the married woman who fulfils her desires through any other man apart from her husband or looks lustfully at anyone other than her unmarriageable kin [i.e. husband], upon which Allah thwarts every single good deed she has ever committed. And if she welcomes anyone other than her husband in his bed, Allah will rightfully burn her in the Fire after He has chastised her in her grave.’

رسولُ اللّٰهِ‏ِ (صَلَّيَ اللّٰهُ عَلَيهِ وَ آلِهِ): اِشتَدَّ غَضَبُ اللّه‏ِ عزّوجلّ عَلَي امرأةٍ ذاتِ بَعلٍ مَلَأتْ عَينَها مِن غَيرِ زَوجِها أو غَيرِ ذِي مَحرَمٍ مِنها ، فإنّها إن فَعَلَتْ ذلكَ أحبَطَ اللّه‏ُ كُلَّ عَمَلٍ عَمِلَتهُ ، فإن أوطَأتْ فِراشَهُ غَيرَهُ كانَ حَقّاً عَلَي‏اللّه‏ِ أن‏يُحرِقَها بِالنارِ بعدَ أن يُعَذِّبَها في قَبرِها.

Description: The Prophet (S) said, 'O Ali, there are six consequences that result from fornication, three of which are in this world and three in the Hereafter. In this world, it takes away one's beauty, hastens one's death and cuts off one's sustenance. In the Hereafter, it results in an evil reckoning, solicits the indignation of the Merciful Himself and makes one deserving of eternity in the Fire.’

رسولُ اللّٰهِ‏ِ (صَلَّيَ اللّٰهُ عَلَيهِ وَ آلِهِ): يا عليُّ في الزِّنا سِتُّ خِصالٍ: ثلاثٌ مِنها فيالدنيا وثلاثٌ في الآخِرَةِ ، فأمّا التي في الدنيا فَيَذهَبُ بالبَهاءِ ، ويُعَجِّلُ الفَناءَ ، ويَقطَعُ الرِّزقَ ، وأمّا التي في الآخِرَةِ فَسُوءُ الحِسابِ ، وسَخَطُ الرحمنِ ، والخُلُودُ في النارِ.

Description: The Prophet (S) said, 'Every breath of man has its share in fornication which he is inevitably aware of at the time.

رسولُ اللّٰهِ‏ِ (صَلَّيَ اللّٰهُ عَلَيهِ وَ آلِهِ): عَلي كُلِّ نَفَسٍ مِن بَني آدَمَ كُتِبَ حَظٌّ مِنَ الزِّنا أدرَكَ ذلكَ لا محالَةَ ، فالعَينُ زِناها النَّظَرُ ، والرِّجلُ زِناها المَشيُ ، والاُذُنُ زِناها الاستِماعُ .
