Sunday 11-Nov-2018, 9:56AM / 788

On the authority of Abu Hurairah may Allh be pleased with him who said, "'Indeed a youth came to the Prophet Sallallhu alayhi wa sallam and said, 'O Messenger of Allh, permit me to fornicate.'" When he said that, those present turned at him and rebuked him; they said, 'Stop that!' The Prophet Sallallhu alayhi wa sallam said, 'Come over.'

The lad went nearer to the Messenger of Allh Sallallhu alayhi wa sallam and the latter asked the former to sit.
The Messenger of Allh Sallallhu alayhi wa sallam said, 'Do you like it for your mother?'
The lad replied, 'No; by Allh, make Allh make me your ransom.'
Then the Messenger of Allh Sallallhu alayhi wa sallam said, 'People too will not like it for their mothers.'
He Sallallhu alayhi wa sallam said further, 'Do you like it for your daughter?'
The lad replied, 'No; by Allh, make Allh make me your ransom.'
Then the Messenger of Allh Sallallhu alayhi wa sallam said, 'People too will not like it for their daughters.'
He Sallallhu alayhi wa sallam said, 'Do you like it for your sister?'
The lad replied, 'No; by Allh, make Allh make me your ransom.'
Then the Messenger of Allh Sallallhu alayhi wa sallam said, 'People too will not like it for their sisters.'
He Sallallhu alayhi wa sallam said, 'Do you like it for your paternal aunt?'
The lad replied, 'No; by Allh, make Allh make me your ransom.'
Then the Messenger of Allh Sallallhu alayhi wa sallam said, 'People too will not like it for their paternal aunts.'
He Sallallhu alayhi wa sallam said, 'Do you like it for your maternal aunts?'
The lad replied, 'No; by Allh, make Allh make me your ransom.'
Then the Messenger of Allh Sallallhu alayhi wa sallam said, 'People too will not like it for their maternal aunts.'
After all that, the Messenger of Allh Sallallhu alayhi wa sallam put his hand on him and said: 'O Allh, forgive him, cleanse his heart and make his private-part chaste.' Thereafter, the lad refrained from looking at anything.
[Al-Imm Ahmad (21676).]

Worse than stealing, fornication and taking of intoxicants!

On the authority of Imrn bn Husayn may Allh be pleased with him , the Prophet Sallallhu alayhi wa sallam said:
'When you see an adulterer, thief, and drunkard what will you say about them?'
They replied:
'Allh and His Messenger know better.'
He Sallallhu alayhi wa sallam said:
'They are detestable acts and there are punishments for them. But won't I inform you of the most heinous sins? It is associating partners with Allh; Allh the Mighty said:
'and whoever sets up partners with Allh in worship, he has indeed invented a tremendous sin;' so also is disobeying the parents,' then he said, 'Give thanks to Me and to your parents, unto me is the final destination.'
The reporter may Allh be pleased with him said:
"'He Sallallhu alayhi wa sallam was reclining then he sat upright and said:
'So also is false speech! So also is false speech!'"
[Ibn Hajar Al-Asqalni may Allh bestow mercy on him recorded it in Al-Mattlib Al-Aaliyah, Book of Faith and Oneness of Allh, Chapter of Explanation of Major Sins (number: 3004). Ibn Hajar may Allh bestow mercy on him also recorded its like in Muwfaqatul-Khabar Al-Khabar (vol.1/356) and he said it is hasan gharb as reported via Al-Hasan (bn al-Basr) may Allh bestow mercy on him , and Azz (another form of strong chain) as reported via Qatdah. Mlik also recorded the like of the hadith in Al-Muwata'a, Book of Shortening the Prayers on Journeys, the Chapter of Action in Whole Prayer (number: 409).]
