Allah (SA) has placed within each of us a desire for closeness and physical intimacy. This gift, so crucial for the stability of family and community, can also lead to our downfall. Sexual behavior outside of marriage is deemed so detrimental for us that even those things that lead to it are out of bounds. As our creator says, “And do not approach unlawful sexual intercourse. Indeed, it is ever an immorality and is evil as a way” (Quran 17:32). Stay conscious of Allah, and stay strong.
