Refusing an unlawful sexual relation out of fear of Allah

Q 11: If a beautiful woman calls a man to have an unlawful sexual relationship but he refuses, shall Allah give him protection with His Shade on the Day of Resurrection?


A: If a beautiful woman calls a man to commit Zina (sexual intercourse outside marriage), but he refuses out of fear of Allah, he is doing a good deed and Allah will reward him generously even if this woman is not of high rank. As to the value, type and nature of this reward, it is up to Allah, for it is one of the hidden matters known to no one but Allah. It is authentically reported from Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) that he said: Seven are (the persons) whom Allah would give protection with His Shade on the Day when there would be no shade but His (i.e. on the Day of Judgment, and they are) ... , he (peace be upon him) mentioned amongst them: A man whom a beautiful woman of high rank seduces (for illicit relation), but he (rejects this offer by saying): "I fear Allah"... .May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
