A young man met a bunch of bad friends and started to travel with them. during one of the trips, he met a prostitute.
They fell in love with each other. Everything started with simple words, then flirting, then meetings…
For the first time in his life, the young man meets a woman who filled his heart with love. He didn’t have any experience of love, he didn’t know that what he was feeling was one of Satan’s Tricks
One day, the young man was alone with the prostitute in one room.
She tried to seduce him and she invited him to Zina (fornication)
The young man was shocked. At that moment, he remembered Allah and feared him.
Iman (faith) was alive in his heart. He remembered the day of judgment, when he will be standing infront of His Creator. He tried to keep himself away.
“Don’t you want me?” she asked him.
“I can’t!” he replied.
“why you can’t?” she asked again.
In that moment, he coudn’t find an answer to her question, so he just said the first thing that came to his mind : “I am sick, I have AIDS” he said, he just wanted to get rid of her, so he lied.
She started to laugh!
“why are you laughing?” he asked her, not believing her reaction
“don’t worry, I have AIDS too, for 3 years now ” she replied
(story told by Shaykh Nabil iwadhi )
Just imagine if that young man was blinded by his desires, and accepted her offer! If his desires were stronger than his faith, he would regret it the rest of his life!
because of a short time of forbidden pleasure, he would get regret, shame, pain and suffring for the rest of his life!
but Allah saved him, just because he feared Him and remembered Him in that moment of weakness his faith was stronger than temptations.
((O Allah! Let us be satisfied with the Halal (permissible) and dispense with the Haram (forbidden) and enrich us with Your favors so that we won’t be in need of anyone else))
