-468- TAFSIR OF SURAH AL-FURQAN (THE EVIL EFFECTS OF ZINA)

TAFSEER SURAH AL-FURQAN: THE EVIL EFFECTS OF ZINA

By Shaikh Abdullah Faisal
Saturday, 13 July, 2013

Notes typed by AT6
Edited by AT6

We stopped at Ayah 65 the last time we were here.

AYAH 65:

And those who say: "Our Lord! Avert from us the torment of Hell. Verily! Its torment is ever an inseparable, permanent punishment." (Al-Furqan 25:65)

- Allah is giving you the attributes of the righteous servants of Ar-Rahman in this ayah.
- They constantly make the dua to be saved from the torment of the Hellfire.

- When Allah said the punishment of the hellfire is permanent, it is only permanent for the hypocrites and the Kuffaar.
- No Muslim will be in Hell forever.
- Every Muslim will come out of Hell with Shafaa'ah (the intercession of Muhammad).
                                                                                                                              
- There are only 3 categories of people: MUSLIM, KAAFIR and MUNAAFIQ.
- A person was kicked out of Hassan Al-Basri's study circle for trying to make a fourth category.

- A person asked Hassan Al-Basri what the ruling for those who commit zinaa is.
- Before Hassan Al-Basri could give his answer Wasil ibn Ataa said, “That person is neither a Muslim nor a Kaafir. He is on the fence.”
- He tried to make a fourth category so he was kicked out of the study circle of Hassan Al-Basri.

- Waasil ibn Ataa went and started the Mu’tazilite movement.
- A lot of people say he was the first Mu’tazilite but he was only the first Mu’tazilite among human beings.

- The first Mu’tazilite was actually a jinn, Iblees.
- Iblees did not bow down to Adam because he was not intellectually convinced.

The evidence for this is Surah 7:12.

(Allāh) said: "What prevented you (O Iblīs) that you did not prostrate, when I commanded you?" Iblīs said: "I am better than him (Adam), You created me from fire, and him You created from clay." (Al-A'raf 7:12)

- This is where the Shaitaan told Allah he is not intellectually convinced so he will never bow down to Adam.

- A sincere believer constantly seeks refuge in Allah from the hellfire because he knows the hellfire is a reality, not a fantasy.


AYAH 67:

And the ones who, when they expend, are neither extravagant nor grudging; and between that is an upright (mean). Dr. Ghali (25:67)

- This ayah is saying that the sincere believer is not an extremist in anything.
- A believer is always in the middle between the two extremes of life.
- Therefore when we spend we are neither extravagant nor stingy.
- Allah said the wasters are the brothers of the Shaytaan in Surah 17:27.

Verily, spendthrifts are brothers of the Shayatīn (devils), and the Shaitān (Devil ­ Satan) is ever ungrateful to his Lord. (Al-Isra 17:27)

- You waste your money by drinking alcohol with friends, by gambling in casinos, by betting on lotteries, by taking drugs and by womanising.
- This is how people waste money.

Surah 17:29 resembles Ayah 67 of Surah Al-Furqaan.

And let not your hand be tied (like a miser) to your neck, nor stretch it forth to its utmost reach (like a spendthrift), so that you become blameworthy and in severe poverty.  (Al-Isra 17:29)

- If you are too kind you are going to give away all your money and suffer severe poverty like the beggars who are begging you every day.
- The more you give the more people want.
- You are going to keep giving until you suffer poverty like them.

- You should always be in the middle between the two extremes of life.
- There will always be poor people in the world.

- You are obliged to give zakah.
- If you want to give more, you can give sadaqah.

- You need to strike the balance because you are the Balanced Nation.

Thus We have made you [true Muslims - real believers of Islāmic Monotheism, true followers of Prophet Muhammad and his Sunnah (legal ways)], a Wasat (just) (and the best) nation, that you be witnesses over mankind and the Messenger (Muhammad) be a witness over you. (Al-Baqarah 2:143)

- Allah told us in Surah 47:38 if you are stingy it is to your own demise.

Now, you are these called to expend in the way of Allah. Then among you (some) are miserly; and whoever is miserly, then he is miserly only upon himself. And Allah is the Ever-Affluent, (Literally: Ever-Rich) and you are the poor ones. And in case you turn away, He will (readily) exchange you for another people; thereafter they will not be your likes. (Muhammad 47:38)

- If you give up your duty to Allah and stop spending, Allah can exchange you for other people.
- Allah will exchange you for new people who won't be tight-fisted and stingy like you.


AYAH 68:

And those who invoke not any other ilāh (god) along with Allāh, nor kill such life as Allāh has forbidden, except for just cause, nor commit illegal sexual intercourse and whoever does this shall receive the punishment.  (Al-Furqan 25:68)

- To invoke another deity besides Allah is shirk.
- Three so called Muslims invoke false deities besides Allah: the goofy Sufi, the shady Shia and the Barelvi.
- These people pray to others besides Allah.
- Allah dismissed them as liars and kaafirs in Surah 39:3.

Surely, the religion (i.e. the worship and the obedience) is for Allāh only. And those who take Auliyā' (protectors and helpers) besides Him (say): "We worship them only that they may bring us near to Allāh." Verily, Allāh will judge between them concerning that wherein they differ. Truly, Allāh guides not him who is a liar, and a disbeliever.  (Az-Zumar 39:3)

- They were dismissed as liars and Kaafirs because they recite Surah Fatiha and say You alone we worship and You alone we ask for help yet they worship the inhabitants of the graves.
- It came from their lips, not their hearts.
- They are Muslims by culture, not by conviction.

- The Prophet called the grave an idol.

Yahya related to me from Malik from Zayd ibn Aslam from Ata ibn Yasar that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said, "O Allah! Do not make my grave an idol that is worshipped. The anger on those who took the graves of their Prophets as places of prostration was terrible."
[Muwatta Malik (1/223) No. 570, Musannaf Abdur Razzaq (1/406) No. 1587, Musnad Ahmad (2/246) No. 7352]

- Therefore the grave worshippers are idol worshippers.
- There is absolutely no difference between a Barelvi and a Buddhist.
- They are both idol worshippers.

- You are not allowed to give the excuse of ignorance to people who pray to false deities.
- Allah took us from the loins of Adam and made us testify against ourselves so we can't use the excuse of ignorance on the day of judgement.

And (remember) when your Lord brought forth from the Children of Adam, from their loins, their seed (or from Adam's loin his offspring) and made them testify as to themselves (saying): "Am I not your Lord?" They said: "Yes! We testify," lest you should say on the Day of Resurrection: "Verily, we have been unaware of this."  (Al-A'raf 7:172)

- The above-mentioned ayah is the hujjah that there is no such thing called the excuse of ignorance for worshipping a false deity.
- Not even the father of the Prophet was let off.

Narrated from Anas (RA) that a man said: “O Messenger of Allah, where is my father?” He said: “In Hell.” When he turned away he called him back and said: “My father and your father are in Hell.”  [Sahih Muslim (Vol. 1, pg. 191) No. 203]

- There is no excuse for worshipping a false deity.
- The Prophet's father died before the prophethood of Muhammad.
- Don't listen to the wicked scholars.

- The wicked scholars will use the story of the woman who committed zinaa during the caliphate of Umar.
- She thought she was allowed to take a male concubine.
- Umar didn't punish her because he realised she was jaahil.
- The woman committed zinaa; she didn't commit shirk.
- Their evidence doesn't stand up to scrutiny.

- The righteous servants of Ar-Rahman do not commit the crime of murder.
- Allah said they don't take a life unless they have the haq to take it.


WHICH MUSLIMS ARE WE ALLOWED TO KILL?

1) THE ADULTERER

2) THE MURDERER

3) THE APOSTATE

4) THE GAY

- We are not allowed to kill lesbians.

5) THE RAPIST

- This is left up to the ijtihaad of the Qaadi in the courthouse

6) A SPY

7) A MAN WHO COMMITS INCEST

8) A HIGHWAY ROBBER

9) A PERSON WHO INSULTS ALLAH, THE RASUL OR THE QURAN

- The person who commits blasphemy is killed.

10) A PERSON WHO HAD INTERCOURSE WITH AN ANIMAL

- We kill the animal as well and no one is allowed to eat from that animal.

11) THE PERSON WHO DABBLES IN BLACK MAGIC

- This person is killed as an apostate.

12) THE PERSON WHO MARRIES HIS FATHER'S WIFE

13) THE PAEDOPHILE

- This is left up to the ijtihaad of the Qaadi because not all paedophiles are killed.

- Islam gives us the right to kill the above-mentioned 13 people.
- No Muslim is allowed to take the law into his own hands.
- It takes a Qaadi in the courthouse to pass judgement on these people.
- These people are killed in the Islamic State by Sharia law.
- We are not allowed to kill homosexuals in Darul Harb or Darul Kufr.

- Homosexuals are terrified of Sharia law because they know they can't coexist with Sharia law.

- Darul Kufr is a land of the kaafirs where there is no Sharia but they are not plotting to kill Muslims neither do they incarcerate Muslims.

- Darul Harb is a land where there is no sharia and they are either killing Muslims or incarcerating innocent Muslims.

- Darul Islam is a land where sharia is implemented and the lives, properties and the deen of the Muslims are protected and safe guarded.

- In Ayah 68 of Surah Al-Furqaan, Allah said the righteous servants don't commit zinaa.

And those who invoke not any other ilāh (god) along with Allāh, nor kill such life as Allāh has forbidden, except for just cause, nor commit illegal sexual intercourse and whoever does this shall receive the punishment.  (Al-Furqan 25:68)

- Allah mentioned shirk, murder and zinaa in the same ayah because when people commit shirk they have no taqwa.
- Therefore it is easy for them to commit murder and zinaa.
- Zinaa means adultery of fornication.

- The punishment for fornication is 100 lashes
- The punishment for adultery is stoning to death.

- The free mixing of the sexes is the road to zinaa.
- The Prophet said when two people are alone the shaitaan is the third.

Narrated Umar ibn al-Khattab: The Prophet said, "...Whenever a man is alone with a woman the Devil makes a third..."  [Musnad Ahmad (1/26) No. 177, Sunan Tirmidhi (4/465) No. 2165, Mustadrak al-Haakim (1/197) No. 387, Sahih Ibn Hibban (12/399) No. 5586, Nasa'i in 'Sunan al-Kubra' (5/387) No. 9219]


THE 17 EVIL EFFECTS OF ZINAA

EVIL EFFECT # 1: LOSS OF PIETY

- Muslims take part in gay marches because they have lost their piety.
- If you dabble in zinaa on a regular basis, it causes you to lose your piety.

Nay! But on their hearts is the Rān (covering of sins and evil deeds) which they used to earn. (Al-Mutaffifin 83:14)

EVIL EFFECT # 2: A LOSS OF GHEERA

- Many Kaafirs dabble in zinaa so much, they now have an open relationship.
- An open relationship is where both partners agree to sleep with whoever they want without either partner interfering.

- Some kaafirs commit so much zina, some of them practice wife swapping.

Abdullah ibn Umar reported that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "Three people will not enter paradise and Allah will not look to them on the Day of Judgment: the one who is disobedient to his parents, the woman who imitates men and the ad-Dayooth (cuckold, weak man who feels no jealousy over his womenfolk)..." [Musnad Ahmad (2/134) No. 6180, Musnad al-Bazzar (12/270) No. 6051, al-Sunnan al-Kubra al-Nasa'i (2/63) No. 2354, al-Mu’jam al-Awsat al-Tabarani (3/51) No. 2443]

EVIL EFFECT # 3: ZINAA IS A DEBT WHICH YOU OWE

Stay chaste and your women will be chaste, and save yourself from that which is unfit for a Muslim. Verily, adultery is a debt, if you have taken this debt, know that its payment will be taken from the people of your household. One who commits adultery, in return adultery will be committed with him, even though it will be committed against the wall of your house. O man! If you are wise then you should know it  (Diwan Ash-Shafi'i)

- If you seduce someone’s wife, one day someone will seduce your wife because zina is a debt which you owe.

EVIL EFFECT # 4: ZINAA BREAKS UP THE FAMILY

- People get divorced and families get split up.
- Some women are home breakers so they target married men.

EVIL EFFECT # 5: AN ACT OF BETRAYAL AND TREACHERY

And the king said: "Bring him to me that I may attach him to my person." Then, when he spoke to him, he said: "Verily, this day, you are with us high in rank and fully trusted." (Yusuf 12:54)

- Yusuf was called trustworthy by the king because he didn't sleep with Zulaikha, one of the prettiest women of Egypt, when he had the chance.

EVIL EFFECT # 6: A LACK OF MODESTY

- Some people commit so much zinaa, they brag about it.
- They think zinaa is normal.
- They have become desensitised to zina.

Abu Huraira narrated the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "Faith has over seventy branches or over sixty branches, the most excellent of which is the declaration that there is no god but Allah, and the humblest of which is the, removal of what is injurious from the path: and modesty is the branch of faith."  [al-Bukhari (8) and Muslim (56)]

Abu Hurayrah said: I heard the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) say: “All of my ummah will be forgiven except those who sin openly. It is a part of sinning openly when a man does something at night, then the following morning when Allaah has concealed his sin, he says, ‘O So and so, I did such and such last night,’ when all night his Lord has concealed him and the next morning he uncovers what Allaah had concealed.”  (Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 5721; Muslim, 2990)

EVIL EFFECT # 7: BLOODSHED IN THE COMMUNITY

- If you seduce someone’s wife or daughter he is going to kill you or pay someone to kill you.
- A proliferation of zinaa is a proliferation of murder.
- You can't separate the two.
- This is why Allah mentioned zinaa and murder side by side in Ayah 68 of Surah Al-Furqaan.
- When you seduce someone’s wife you hurt his pride.

EVIL EFFECT # 8: YOU LOSE THE NOOR ON YOUR FACE

Anas ibn Malik (RA) said: I entered the company of Uthman ibn Affaan (RA) while I was thinking about the beauty of a woman I saw in the street. Uthman (RA) then said: One of you enter my presence and the remnants of zinaa can be seen in his eyes. I then said: Did revelation come down after the departure of the Rasool (SAW)? Uthman said: But this is the deep insight, foresight and intuition of the believer.  [Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyyah, Madaarij as-Saalikeen (Vol. 2, pg. 455)]

EVIL EFFECT # 9: ZINA LEADS TO POVERTY

- When a man has many girlfriends he spends a lot of money on them so he becomes poor.
- There is no such thing called a free romance.
- You have to buy the girl gifts.

Verily, the Zālimûn (wrong and evil-doers) will never be successful."  (Yusuf 12:23)

- The ayah is saying if you are a zaani you won't be successful.
- Zinaa causes poverty.
- When you have 10 children from 10 different women, the father is not there to provide food, shelter and education for the kids so they grow up in poverty.
- The kids grow up in poverty and grow up to commit zinaa too.
- It is a cycle that they can't break away from.

It was narrated from Thawban that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "Nothing increases one's life span except righteousness and nothing repels the Divine decree except supplication, and a man may be deprived of provision by a sin that he commits."' [Sunan Ibn Majah (Arabic/English), Vol 5, pg224-225, Hadith #4022]

EVIL EFFECT # 10: A PROLIFERATION OF DANGEROUS DISEASES

- People who commit zinaa always have diseases in their system such as Gonorrhoea, Hepatitis B and Chlamydia.
- HPV is a new virus.

It was narrated that 'Abdullah bin 'Umar said: "The Messenger of Allah (SAW) turned to us and said: 'O Muhajirin, there are five things with which you will be tested, and I seek refuge with Allah lest you live to see them:

Immorality never appears among a people to such an extent that they commit it openly, but plagues and diseases that were never known among the predecessors will spread among them.

They do not cheat in weights and measures but they will be stricken with famine, severe calamity and the oppression of their rulers.

They do not withhold the Zakah of the wealth, but rain will be withheld from the sky, and were it not for the animals, no rain would fall on them.

They do not break the covenant with Allah and His Messenger, but Allah will enable their enemies tooverpower them and take some of what is in their hands.

Unless their leaders rule according to the Book of Allah and seek all good from that which Allah has revealed, Allah will cause them to fight one another.  [Sunan Ibn Majah (Arabic/English), Vol. 5, pg. 222-223, Hadith #4019]

EVIL EFFECT # 11: A PROLIFERATION OF BASTARD KIDS

- Allah told you in surah 17:64 that the bastard kids are the kids of Iblees.

"And Istafziz [literally means: befool them gradually] those whom you can among them with your voice (i.e. songs, music, and any other call for Allāh's disobedience), make assaults on them with your cavalry and your infantry, mutually share with them wealth and children (by tempting them to earn money by illegal ways usury, etc., or by committing illegal sexual intercourse, etc.), and make promises to them." But Satan promises them nothing but deceit. (Al-Isra 17:64)

- Every false religion is a promise of the Satan.
- The Haraam earnings are the wealth of the Satan.
- Music is the voice of the Satan.
- Every Kaafir army is the army of the Satan.

EVIL EFFECT # 12: A PROLIFERATION OF STREET KIDS

EVIL EFFECT # 13: A PROLIFERATION OF ABORTION CLINCS

- These bastard kids are unwanted pregnancies so they are aborted.
- This causes a proliferation of abortion clinics.

EVIL EFFECT # 14: YOU LOSE YOUR DIGNITY AND SELF RESPECT

EVIL EFFECT # 15: YOUR FAMILY NAME IS DISGRACED

- This may lead to honour killing.

EVIL EFFECT # 16: A PROLIFERATION OF CRIME

- The street kids commit crimes to fend for themselves.

EVIL EFFECT # 17: YOU GAIN THE ANGER OF ALLAH

EVIL EFFECT # 18: YOU WILL BE IN THE HELLFIRE IF ALLAH DOESN'T FORGIVE YOU


AYAH 69:

The torment will be doubled to him on the Day of Resurrection, and he will abide therein in disgrace;  (Al-Furqan 25:69)

- On Judgement Day the punishment will be doubled for the zaani who got away for his crime in the Dunya.
