It is the feeling of intimacy refers to a recap of last week's program. Last week we discussed that Allah subhanaw taala has given us a complete religion and Allah subhanaw taala has addressed every need of ours, whether it's food, whether it's clothing, whether it's business, whether it's inheritance, whether it's marriage, whatever it may be, Allah has addressed it in his Sharia, Allah sent a complete Deen down and Allah has not left us in the dark with regards to any of our needs in life. And in that regard, we said that Allah has also addressed the needs of intimacy between husband and wife. Today we are looking at another important aspect and that is intentions. And we
know the concept of intention in Islam in Nevada marylu be new yet everything Everything we do is based on intention. So this is not excluded also when it comes to intimacy, and there are different intentions that Allah have showed us. The first one is that the Prophet of Allah sallallahu Sallam has outlined that one of the objectives of nica is procreation or to bring pious offspring to this world. One of the intentions that we should have when engaging in this activity is to have the intention of increasing the amount Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam, as a prophet of Allah Salallahu alaihe salam is covered, that the xojo were doodle were lewd, for in the mocha theorem
become will oma Yeoman Kriya marry a woman that is profound in her love towards you, and a woman that will dare your children, for I would like to vie with other nations and they have kiama in terms of numbers. Now, that is a direct indication from the Prophet of Allah Salallahu alaihe salam, that one of the objectives of nicca is to increase the oma. So to have that intention in the in the backdrop is fine. And remember, it is through this process that we had great scholars, great leaders, and people who made a contribution to our community and our society. So we should keep that also in mind when engaging in such activities. In a nutshell, the prophet of Allah sallallahu Sallam
has encouraged us to have a good intention, and that is to bring buyers of spring to the world. Another intention that we can have is to protect ourselves against fornication, against Xena, and all other forms of haram activities that could be associated to that. So Nika is an institute that provides integrity that provides security that provides chestatee for both partners. So when engaging in that activity, we should understand that this is a means of protecting my chastity and this is a means of protecting my dignity and my honor, and that is where the Prophet of Allah sallallahu Sallam said, Minister Tom in common for later so watch. For in no golden buzzer wa salam
will follow the process of realizing that if you if you can afford to get married and get married, because the Institute of Nika helps you control your gaze number one, and helps you protect your chestatee. This is one of the objectives of nicca to protect your chestatee and that is found through the halaal relation that we have with our partners. So that's that's the second intention. And there's also another beautiful narration of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam when the Prophet of Allah says he that I had to come our Java tomorrow to for work art we call Viva La Medina immorality, it fairly well cared for in the Delica root domain, if enough say in this applies to the
corporate world, and also people are working in the outside environment, that if you are outside in the profit of a lysine, you happen to be attracted by a beautiful woman. Then he says, You should turn to your partner For verily this will protect you against all sorts of harms. So again, what we're highlighting here is that this activity is actually a means of protecting your chastity and your dignity. So look how pure Islam is and look how fulfilling the relationship is. The third intention that you should have is fulfilling the rights of one partner. And this we will discuss in a separate segment altogether, that the right to sexual gratification belongs to both the husband
and the wife, but just on the topic of intentions. We can have this intention also that I'm fulfilling the need of my partner, he or she And the final one, the author's go to is that enjoying this gift of nikka there's nothing wrong
salutely nothing wrong to have this intention also. And in fact, the prophet of Allah sallallahu wasallam has clarified this in the Hadith that wolfi booderee haidakhan sadaqa
that to have relations with your partner is also a form of charity. So we learn from here that there is nothing wrong, nothing wrong in having that intention of just enjoying the gift of nicca through halaal ways. And this is astonishing because the Sahaba asked the Prophet of Allah, that oh prophet of Allah, how can this act be an act of Avada? How can this be reverted? How can this be an act of worship? And the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, you know what I have here? How long can I lay? If you have Islam? The Prophet of Allah said, had he engaged in the same activity with somebody else out of the red lock somebody else out of the nica? Would it not be haram for him?
They said yes. Would it not be a means of earning the punishment of Allah? They said, Yes, for karateka either what I have in hand it can Allahu Allah, the prophet of Allah said Likewise, when the person does it in the rightful manner, it becomes an act of murder. So, today's segment is basically just to conscient eyes us that this intention also in this regard, like we mentioned, number one, procreation increasing the amount Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the second reason we mentioned that it is a protection and it is a fort for you that will provide security from all sorts of Haram. And number three, we said it's also a means of fulfilling each other's rights
for the intention that we discuss this morning, and join the gift of nica. These will fall under the ambit of intentions. And at the same time, we should also understand it's a form of a birder and it also it's also a form of soda and charity.
