-398- Lust, Its Evil Effects On The Society


By Shaikh Abdullah Faisal

NOTES typed by AT-21
Edited and Formatted by AT7


Lust is a huge topic because it's split into many different types of lust
-the 2 main types are lust for haram and lust for halal

-it is to harbour in your heart love for pleasures of the flesh

2 TYPES OF LUST: blameworthy and praiseworthy

-lusting for your wife / husband because the purpose of marriage is to lower your gaze

-looking at the wife of your Muslim brother or blood-brother lustfully
-so all lust is not evil; sometimes, it's good and other times, it's bad

Allah said:

And those who guard their chastity (i.e. private parts, from illegal sexual acts) (Al-Mu'minun 23:5)

Except from their wives or (the captives and slaves) that their right hands possess, for then, they are free from blame; (Al-Mu'minun 23:6)

But whoever seeks beyond that, then those are the transgressors; (Al-Mu'minun 23:7)

-so a sincere believer protects his private part

The "modernists" say you must marry right-hand possess before you can go to bed with her
-don't take your deen from the modernist, rationalist, or fatalist
-only take your deen from those who support the mujahideen


-a student said to Shaikh that he can't discuss things he learned in university
-and to hide some knowledge
-so a brother left AT in anger
-but in AT, we preach "practical everyday Islam" that you can relate to

Scholars of Islam differ amongst themselves:

Ahmad ibn Hanbal said masturbation is HALAL
-he said it is better than committing zina,
-which can give you herpes or the AIDS virus, which cannot be cured
-but a virgin is NOT allowed to masturbate with objects
-because she might destroy her hymen
-this might cause her husband to have doubts about her on their honeymoon

Imam Malik said masturbation is haram

Imams Shafi'i and Abu Hanifa said masturbation is makrooh

And those who guard their chastity (i.e. private parts, from illegal sexual acts) (Al-Mu'minun 23:5)

Except from their wives or (the captives and slaves) that their right hands possess, for then, they are free from blame; (Al-Mu'minun 23:6)

Malikis use these ayats to checkmate the Hanbali view
-their fiqh books call masturbation the 'fornication of the hands'
-Hanbalis call it the 'secret habit'

Malikis are bitter about masturbation because they say
-you need to imagine a woman in order to masturbate
-or a woman imagines a man who is haram for her; this is their argument

-prostitutes will never kiss their client
-kissing is very personal
-if your partner kisses someone behind your back, this is cheating
-kissing is an aspect of cheating
-punishment for kissing is 10 lashes


-sex before marriage
-Allah didn't say 'don't commit zina', He (swt) said don't even come near to it!
-for you to be in a pub, you're in haram, even if you didn't drink any alcohol

Jabir (RA) reported that the Prophet (SAW) said, ‘He who believes in Allah and the Last Day must not send his wife to the public bath And he who believes in Allah and the Last Day, must not go to the public bath without his lower garment. And he who believes in Allah and the Last Day must not sit at the table where wine is passed round.” [Tirmidhi 2810, Ahmed 14657, Nisai 398]

-some women ask dodgy questions, such as
-'can i go to a salon and have my bikini-line shaved?'
-answer is 'no' - the best person is your husband, who also should wash your body if you die

Aisha is reported to have said: "Allah's Messenger returned from al-Baqi (the believers' graveyards; found me while I was experiencing headache and I was uttering, Ah, my head!" Thereupon, he (the Holy Prophet) said, "Nay, I: Ah my head, O Aisha." Then he observed, "Nothing will harm if you pass away before me. I shall take care of you, 1465] (According to al-Zawaid, "The authorities of the isnad are reliable (and authentic). Bukhari has transmitted it in brief from another angle.")

And it has already been revealed to you in the Book (this Qur'ān) that when you hear the Verses of Allāh being denied and mocked at, then sit not with them, until they engage in a talk other than that; (but if you stayed with them) certainly in that case you would be like them. Surely, Allāh will collect the hypocrites and disbelievers all together in Hell, (An-Nisa 4:140)

We can't approach zina, khamr, zandaqa
-this is why we are careful which rooms we let you go to on PalTalk
-because it's easy for you to get misguided

In the west, fornication is glorified
-so it’s possible to get caught up in this
-in Pakistani communities and others, virginity is a very serious matter
-so some girls have therapy to restore the hymen

Living in darul harb influences people so it's easier to lose your virginity
-if a man has many girlfriends, he is called a STUD
-but if a woman has many boyfriends, she is called nasty names
-men are called 'dogs' as a sign they've done well for themselves by having so many girlfriends
-people don't turn a bind-eye to the philandering of a woman

Honour-killing is not done to boys but girls
-'daughters are diamonds'
-this is a double-standard is ALL communities, not only Muslim communities
-even kaafirs are protective over their daughters

Allah said:

The woman and the man guilty of illegal sexual intercourse, flog each of them with a hundred stripes. Let not pity withhold you in their case, in a punishment prescribed by Allāh, if you believe in Allāh and the Last Day. And let a party of the believers witness their punishment. This punishment is for unmarried persons guilty of the above crime but if married persons commit it, the punishment is to stone them to death, according to Allāh's Law). (An-Nur 24:2)


1. Some say women gravitate to zina more than men
-Shaikh doesn't agree with this because testosterone is stronger than estrogen
-if there is a competition between the two, testosterone will win
-men are more promiscuous than woman

2. it’s more shameful for a girl to fornicate than a boy
-this tafseer makes more sense
-the pagan Arabs buried their girl children alive because they feared them fornicating
-this was long before Islam
-they didn't want their family disgraced by fornication
-even Christian-Arabs don't allow fornication; they are offended by it

Newspapers will pay you a lot of money if you tell them important people you've slept with
-Prince William was relaxing in Southern France with his wife
-someone sold pictures of her topless and was paid an 'arm and a leg'
-in the Arab world, no newspaper would print that story
-people in Europe are perverted
-they want to see another man's wife's body
-fame is a double-edged sword
-cameras snap every moment of yours, even hiding cameras in hotel rooms
-then display the photos on the Internet
-kaafirs are breath-takingly evil

3. Fornication damages a girl more than a boy, physically
-this is also an accurate tafseer because the girl will get pregnant

Did you know that if a man fornicates with a woman who has AIDS,
-there is a 70% chance he won't catch the AIDS virus, if he is circumcised?
-but if a woman is with a man who has the AIDS virus, she is 'finished'

You're not allowed to be in seclusion with non-mahrams, even brothers-in-law

It was narrated from ‘Uqbah ibn ‘Aamir that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: “Beware of entering upon women.” A man from among the Ansar said: “O Messenger of Allah, what about the brother-in-law?” He said: “The brother-in-law is death.” [al-Bukhari (5232) and Muslim (2172)]

-some women marry one brother but sleep with their brother-in-law too
-the kuffaar call this 'buy one, get one free'

Punishment for fornication is 100 lashes and to be sent away from the town for one year
-this is in the Islamic State,
-example if you do it in Karachi, you must be sent to another city for one year
-we do not flog people in darul harb (UK, US, Australia, etc.)

You must flog someone in the clothing they wore when they committed the zina
-in a jacket or tee shirt, then that's what you flog them in
-being flogged is a HUMILIATING punishment (adhaab muheen), not a painful one

Shaikh saw people flogged when he was in KSA but the people were not hurt
-even young kids could withstand it because it's not painful, but humiliating
-the person is flogged after Salatul Jumm'ah so 3,000 people will see you flogged

Abu Huraira narrated from the Prophet (SAW) who said "Allah has written for Adam's son his share of adultery which he commits inevitably. The adultery of the eyes is the sight (to gaze at a forbidden thing), the adultery of the tongue is the talk, and the inner self wishes and desires and the private parts testify all this or deny it." [al-Bukhari (6612) and Muslim (2657)]

-you're permitted to 'chat up' your spouse

You can't testify you saw zina without having 4 witnesses
-the judge will split up the witnesses to ask what position they saw the couple in
-if there is a contradiction, then the Qaadi is obliged to give 80 lashes to the witnesses
-and throw the case out of court

The case of Mughirah bin Shu`bah, in which `Umar punished Abu Bakrah and the other two eye-witnesses on the charge of false accusation. A critical study of the entire case shows that this precedent is not applicable to every case where the crime is not proved by proper evidence. The facts of the case are that Mughirah bin Sh u`bah, the Governor of Basrah, did not have good relations with Abu Bakrah, whose house was opposite to his house across the same street. One day the windows of the two houses were opened by a strong current of wind. When 'Abu Bakrah got up to close his window, he saw through the opposite window across the street Mughirah in a state of actual sexual intercourse. He asked three of his friends (Naf`i bin Kaladah, and Shibl bin Ma`bad) who were also sitting with him to stand up and witness what Mughirah was doing. The friends asked him who was the woman. Abu Bakrah. said that she was Umm Jamil. The next day a complaint to this effect was sent to `Umar, who immediately suspended Mughirah and appointed Abu Musa Ash`ari as Governor of Basrah. Mughirah along with the witnesses was called to Al-Madinah. When they were asked about the case, Abu Bakrah said that they had seen Mughirah actually committing sexual intercourse with Umm Jamil, but Ziad said that the woman was not clearly visible and that he could not say definitely whether it was Umm Jamil or not. During the cross examination, Mughirah proved that they could not have seen the woman distinctly from the place where they were standing. He also proved that there was a close resemblance between his wife and Umm Jamil. Besides this, circumstantial evidence also showed that during the Caliphate of `Umar, the governor of a province could not have committed this crime in his official residence, especially when his wife was also living with him. Thus the supposition of Abu Bakrah and his companions that Mughirah was having sexual intercourse with Umm Jamil, instead of his own wife, was nothing but a misplaced suspicion. It was for this reason that `Umar not only acquitted the accused but also punished Abu Bakrah, Naf`i and Shibl as slanderers. It is obvious that this isolated decision was based on the specific circumstances of the case and not on the principle that the witnesses must be' punished when they are not able to prove the charge by their evidence. (For details of this case, see Ahkam al-Qur'an, Ibn al-`Arabi, Vol. II, pp. 88, 89).

-extra marital love affairs
-it is only in the Islamic State that we stone to death for adultery
-four witnesses have to see the ‘pen in the ink’
-Umar gave 80 lashes for false testimony on adultery
-a woman alone cannot open the door to a strange man, not even a shaikh

If your husband dies then you can marry brother in law hence he is not your mahram
-if you have young child over 7 years you can open the door to brother in law or strange man

And come not near to the unlawful sexual intercourse. Verily, it is a Fāhishah [i.e. anything that transgresses its limits (a great sin)], and an evil way (that leads one to Hell unless Allāh forgives him). (Al-Isra 17:32)

Tafseer means don’t be alone with non mahram
-if a woman is secretary for a man they cannot be behind closed doors that job is haram
-many women with bosses dabble in affairs
-you spend more time with your boss than your husband
-your husband only has you on the weekend
-hence many brothers don’t allow their wives to work for this reason

-because we have 6 sacred things ... our life, wealth, izza, deen, lineage, and our aql

Our deen is sacred; this is how we determine WHY we do what we do
-such as how we punish for adultery, or theft, etc.

Shari’ah law protects our life, wealth, izza, deen, lineage, and our aql
-some men like to seduce married women
-if a woman has a ring on her finger, this means she is married
-but this is a turn-on for some men
-they think they can make love to her without strings attached
-that they don't have to feed her (her husband does that) so 'he is the minister of finance -and i am the minister of romance"
-these men must be killed (in the Islamic State)
-because once they commit zina with one married woman,
-they develop a liking for it so they will do it again

Allah said:

O wives of the Prophet! You are not like any other women. If you keep your duty (to Allāh), then be not soft in speech, lest he in whose heart is a disease (of hypocrisy, or evil desire for adultery, etc.) should be moved with desire, but speak in an honourable manner. (Al-Ahzab 33:32)

-the 'desire for adultery' is spoon-fed to us so we know Allah 'tala is speaking of adultery
-it also shows that the voice of a woman is a big turn-on for men
-this is why some sisters don't Skype


These men who do zina with married women think they are getting sex for free
-when a man sleeps with married women, he has a sex addiction, so we must kill that man


On the authority of Qataada who said: “A woman slept with her male servant and cited an ayah of the Holy Qur'an as her evidence for her action. ‘…or the (female) slaves whom their right hands possess…’ (An-Nur 24:31). This woman was brought to Umar ibn al Khattab (RA) by a group of Sahabas who complained to Umar that she misinterpreted a verse from the Holy Qur’an and slept with her male servant. Umar commanded that the male servant should be sent away for a year and he was beheaded. He then said to the woman you are now haram for all Muslims.” [Tafseer al-Tabari (9/586) No. 11277]

-This is 2 women who dabble in sexual intercourse with each other
-there is a Greek Island called LESBO so the women who did this behaviour, were sent there
-this is where the word came from

Ibn Qudamah said: "If two women engage in lesbian sexual relations, then they are guilty of zina and are cursed, because it was narrated that the Prophet (SAW) said: “If a woman has sexual relations with another woman, then they are both guilty of zina.” There is no hadd punishment for them because they did not have intercourse, rather it is likened to intimate relations that are less than intercourse, and they are to be subjected to a ta’zeer punishment." [al-Mughni (9/61)]

-Ahmad ibn Hanbal said we're not to kill lesbians, just give them 100 lashes
-because their form of intercourse is FAKE



This is 2 men who dabble in sexual intercourse with each other
-the punishment for this is death
-a homosexual can be a kaafir,
-if he turns his back on nikah and says 'homosexuality is my preference'
-if he stops it after nikah, then he is not a kaffir

There is a difference of opinion concerning the punishment for the one who commits sodomy. The following are the opinions that were mentioned by Imam Ash-Shawkani in "Nayl Al-Awtar" , Vol. 7/p122-124.

Al-Awtar" , Vol. 7/p122-124.
1) That he is killed with the sword, then burnt. This is narrated from Abu Bakr and 'Ali Ibn Abi Talib.

2) That a wall should be collapsed upon him. This was the opinion of 'Umar and 'Uthman.

3) That he should be thrown from the highest building in the city, then that should be followed up with him being pelted with rocks. This was the opinion of Ibn 'Abbas.

4) That he is stoned. This is narrated by Al-Bayhaqi from 'Ali Ibn Abi Talib, Ash-Sha'bi, Az-Zuhri, Malik, Ahmad, Is'haq, and Ash-Shafi'i.

5) That they are burned. This was narrated by Al-Bayhaqi, that Abu Bakr gathered the Sahabah and 'Ali mentioned this, and the Sahabah agreed upon it. It was also mentioned by Al-Munthiri that
it was done by Abu Bakr, 'Ali, 'Abdullah Ibn Az-Zubayr, and Hisham Ibn 'Abdil-Malik.

6) That he is stoned, then burnt with fire. This is narrated from the Sahabah agreeing upon it in the time of Abu Bakr.

7) That the punishment is the same as Zina, in that if he is a virgin, he is whipped, and if he is not, then he is stoned.

8) That there is no prescribed punishment, rather it is left up to the Imam to perform Ta'zir, and this was narrated from Abu Hanifah, and one narration from Ash-Shafi'i, and others.
Ash-Shawkani refutes the opinion of the punishment being the same as Zina, as well as the opinion that there is only Ta'zir, and supports the opinion that he is killed, but does not appear to specify which way of killing is the strongest.

Our hujjah:
-when the caliphs caught homosexuals, they refused to pray janaza over them
-there is no sexual preference in Islam
-lesbians are not killed because their sex is fake

Hisham Ibn said, “Had Allah not informed us of the sinful deeds of the people of Lut, one would never have believed that males would commit such actions together.

Homosexuality is a behaviour that is LEARNED, we're not born with it
-this is why kaafirs have gay porn because it is "learned"

Ibn ‘Abbas (RA) said: The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: “Whoever you find doing the action of the people of Loot, execute the one who does it and the one to whom it is done.” [Sunan Tirmidhi (4/57) No. 1456, Sunan Abu Dawud (4/158) No. 4462, Sunan Ibn Majah (3/594) No. 2561, Musnad Ahmad (1/300) No. 2732]

Atheists who are gay have no hope

"...I marry women. Whoever turns away from my Sunnah is not of me.” (Sahih al Bukhari (Arabic/English) Vol.7 pg No.1. Sahih-Muslim, English translation Vol 2 pg 703 No.3236)

We pray over people we stone to death or chop off their heads
-but the caliphs didn't pray over the gays
-many in this room want to convince Shaikh that gays can be Muslims
-but their [gays] bodies were burned and they were refused janaza

Imran b. Husain reported that a woman from Juhaina came to Allah's Apostle (SAW) and she had become pregnant because of adultery. She said: Allah's Apostle, I have done something for which (prescribed punishment) must be imposed upon me, so impose that. Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) called her master and said: Treat her well, and when she delivers bring her to me. He did accordingly. Then Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) pronounced judgment about her and her clothes were tied around her and then he commanded and she was stoned to death. He then prayed over her (dead body). Thereupon Umar said to him: Allah's Apostle, you offer prayer for her, whereas she had committed adultery ! Thereupon he said: She has made such a repentance that if it were to be divided among seventy men of Medina, it would be enough. Have you found any repentance better than this that she sacrificed her life for Allah, the Majestic? [Sahih Muslim, Book 17, Hadith #4207]

-the argument that a gay can be a Muslim is a WEAK argument
-'to be gay is in your geneses" is wrong because
-Allah 'tala would not have created that man and also punished him with fire for it

Allah said:

This is because of that (evil) which your hands have sent before you. And certainly, Allāh is never unjust to (His) slaves. (Aali Imran 3:182)

The kuffaar advertise homosexuality because they know it is not something we're born with 
 -but is a LEARNED behaviour
-so they make movies like BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN

-it was made by FREE MASONS to turn your sons into gays
-the same as PRETTY WOMAN (movie) to turn your daughters into prostitutes


Assalamu alaikum, how is a man an adulterer if his wife is dead; and is he killed also as an adulterer if he commits?

-this question is very important
-because according to Shari’ah law if your wife is dead,
-and you slept with another wife you committed adultery
-because you cheated on your dead wife
-this is the fatwa given to me by the shaikh Abdullah Tuwayjiri
-you have to accept it; this is Shari’ah law
-but if you marry a girl or re marry after your wife is dead this is not adultery
-because you can marry 4 women
-but you can’t sleep with them without nikah


Assalamu alaikum sheikh, is it compulsory to attend nikah if invited?

-yes it is compulsory
-because your brother has 6 rights over you
-and one of them is to accept his invitation
-and refusing to attend the invite is disobedience to Allah

Narrated By Abu Huraira: The worst food is that of a wedding banquet to which only the rich are invited while the poor are not invited. And he who refuses an invitation (to a banquet) disobeys Allah and His Apostle. [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 7, Book 62, Hadith #106]


Shaikh, i went to a protest yesterday (i don’t believe in protest) and I said a statement that is as far as i know classified as shirk. I said labaika ya Muhammad whereas the correct statement is Labaika ya Allah. Am i right and what can i do other than tawbah to be forgiven insha Allah?

-you can say ya Muhammad when you are standing by his grave
-but away from his grave it is not allowed
-you can only say Ya Allah
-even your tashahud has Assalamu a3lan nabi, not assalamu alaika

Narrated Ibn Mas'ud Allah's Apostle taught me the Tashah-hud as he taught me a Sura from the Quran, while my hand was between his hands. (Tashah-hud was) all the best compliments and the prayers and the good things are for Allah. Peace and Allah's Mercy and Blessings be on you, O Prophet! Peace be on us and on the pious slaves of Allah, I testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah, and I also testify that Muhammad is Allah's slave and His Apostle. (We used to recite this in the prayer) during the lifetime of the Prophet, but when he had died, we used to say, "Peace be on the Prophet." Bukhari -Volume 8, Book 74, Number 281

-this is the new tashahud after the prophet (saw) died
-the Berailvis don’t recite it like we do
-and they use that to say they can pray to the dead

You don’t have to make tawbah
-because we give you the excuse of ignorance
-what you do is istigfaar not tawbah

Istigfaar is to seek repentance from minor sins
-and tawbah is to seek repentance from major sins


If evidence of adultery is obtained by it being recorded by a camera the spouse has hidden in the house, but no witnesses were present, can it be used as evidence?


The camera cannot be used as evidence
-because of modern day technology
-because it can be tampered with
-so you need live witnesses
-and it is worse if it is camera by photograph

Camera allows suspicion
-so it cannot be used as a witness
-and Abdullah Tuwayjiri passed this fatwa to me


Assalamu alaikum Shaikh, Bilal Phillips started an Islamic Online University is it okay to enrol in it?

-there is nothing that you can learn in this university that you did not know before
-these courses are very basic and they don’t teach tawheed haakimiyya, al walaa wal baraa
-because they are designed not to upset the taghoot
-it is up to you to enroll

If you want to enroll to get a certificate from them to get enrollment in a university that is fine
-but you have to come to the room to learn your tawheed
-because after September 11 the universities changed their syllabus to appease the kuffaar -plus they believe in democracy

O you who believe! If a rebellious evil person comes to you with a news, verify it, lest you harm people in ignorance, and afterwards you become regretful to what you have done. (Al-Hujurat 49:6)

-you can go verify this by asking them insha Allah
