The Lack of Balance in Sexual Instinct

The big problem today is the lack of balance in instincts. Some people in the name of freedom do anything they want. They look at each scene like porno scene and they drink anything like Intoxicating drinks and they do everything like adultery.
Have you ever think about very bad consequences of adultery? We just name a few examples.
Social disorder is the first big problem of adultery because the relationship of the father and children will become unclear. Increasing in adultery around the world is terrible even to imagine, because in such a world the father-child relationship will be eliminated and there is also no love for these children because of the unclear relationship between child and parents.
In addition, adultery leads to many contagious sexually transmitted diseases (STD’s) many of which are life-threatening. The disease called AIDS is just one example.


Due to these very bad consequences, the sacred religion of Islam has prohibited adultery. Prophet Muhammad said: There are six bad effects of adultery. Three of them are in this world and the other three are in the Hereafter. 

The effects of adultery in this world are as follows:

  1. Adultery takes away one’s sincerity and divine illumination.
  2. Adultery stops the arrival of one’s share of daily bread.
  3. Adultery speeds up man’s destruction.

The three effects of adultery in the Hereafter are as follows:

  1.  Adultery will raise the anger of the Lord.
  2.  Adultery will make the Reckoning difficult.
  3.  Adultery will result in entry (or remaining forever) in the Fire of Hell.”

The Rights Of Private Part

Private part is the main limb concerning sexual instinct. This limb of human body is created wisely and each of the men and women has their own.
However, do you know that the private parts, like other limbs, have own rights? Have you ever thought in this regard? The sacred religion of Islam even has some useful advices in this regard.

Imam Sajjad (the fourth Imam of Muslims) in his “The Treatise on Rights” has said: “And the right of your private part is that you should protect it from everything that is unlawful for you.” (Right n.9)
What Imam Sajjad (Peace Be upon Him) means by “protecting your private part” is covering it from people’s eyes. In other words, you must protect it from fornication and guard it against being looked upon.


Nowadays, unfortunately, these things are not respected. Some people let loose their sexual instinct absolutely free and they do not care for anything but fun. This extremist theory causes many problems for human society.  The increase of Adultery, Abortion and Divorce Statistics, the spread of sexually transmitted diseases like AIDS, loss of trust between family members, are some of these problems.

So, there is no choice but to return to the Divine teachings. We must believe God who created us, Knows what is best for us.
