The reward for refusing Zina🔥
Abu Bakr al-Miski was once asked: We always find a good odor emanating from you, why or how?
By Allaah, for years I have not used any perfume, but the reason for the good smell has to do with what I passed through.
A woman once tricked me into entering her home. Then she closed and locked the door behind her, after which she began to seduce me. I became utterly bewildered as to what I should do, for I had no options before me.
I said to her: I need to go and purify myself.
She ordered her servant to take me to the bathroom, and when I entered it, I took faeces (filth) in my hand and wiped it all over my body.
Then I returned to her in that state. Shocked to see me like that, the woman ordered that I be removed from her home.
I left and immediately had a bath.
That very night I saw a dream; in it, it was said to me: You have done that which no else has ever done before. I will make your smell good and pure in this world and in the hereafter.
When I woke up, the smell of perfume was emanating from my body, and it has continued to emanate from my body until this very moment.

If the one who has committed zina repents to Allaah, truly and sincerely, then Allaah will forgive him or her, and overlook the sin.
Except for those who repent, believe and do righteous work. For them Allah will replace their evil deeds with good. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful.
Confession: I just can't stand how people cause injustices to others. Sometimes I react harshly and sometimes I can get over it. I often feel like emotions are a curse, an impediment.
