Chapter No.: 

باسمه سبحانه و تعالى


Islamic laws depict and represent the human nature. A Muslim ought to abide by these laws which Allah Ta’ala has decreed on him through the last and the final Prophet—Hadhrat Muhammad Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). Allah Ta’ala says in the Holy Qur’an:

تِلْكَ حُدُودُ اللَّهِ فَلَا تَعْتَدُوهَا وَمَنْ يَتَعَدَّ حُدُودَ اللَّهِ فَأُولَئِكَ هُمُ الظَّالِمُونَ

These are the limits set by Allah. Therefore, do not exceed them. Whosoever exceeds the limits set by Allah, then, those are the transgressors. (2:229)

There is a tremendous difference between human beings and animals. The animals do not possess well developed frontal lobe of the brain. Even the gigantic animals, if you observe, have very small frontal bone. The area of civilization is placed in the frontal lobe of the brain. Below the frontal lobe, there is emotional centre which is controlled by the frontal lobe. When a human being looks at an opposite sex, a natural emotional reaction arouses in him. Being a human, he first controls his emotions and then channelizes them. On the other hand, animals do not have well developed area of civilization and the frontal lobe, hence they are swayed by their emotions. The animals just cannot control their emotions.

Unfortunately, nowadays the human values have degraded to the extent that these animal instincts have been given the name of ‘modern civilization’. Almost everyone may have witnessed that when a dog sees a bitch, it is unable to control its emotions and fulfils its passion even on the roadside. Similar is the case of today’s so-called human being, who gets swayed by the emotions, does not use his area of civilization and fulfils his bestial desire anywhere, may be even on the roadside like a dog, and ironically, he is considered ‘modern, civilized, liberal and what not’. On the other hand, if someone controls his emotions and behaves like a true human being, he is labeled as ‘conservative, backward and orthodox’.

It is need of the hour to educate Ummat-i-Muslimah in particular and the world in general about this moral degradation and its harmful effects. It is high time for Muslims to realize the importance of Islamic teachings and act accordingly thereby save themselves and their families from the Hell fire.

Mawlana Muhammad Rahmatullah Sahib has taken lot of pains in collecting the Qur’anic verses and numerous statements of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), and described in a very lucid and detailed manner the evil effects of these animal instincts like obscenity, illegal sexual relations, sodomy etc.

Dear Sameem Husain has done a wonderful job in translating this book into English.

May Allah Ta’ala accept this endeavour of Mawlama Muhammad Rahmatullah Sahib and Mr. Sameem Husain, and make it highly beneficial for the Ummah.
