Adultery Ruins Avoid it by Prof. Sabitu Olagoke

Prof 3To appreciate the difference between animal and man, the area of mating is pointer.

Take note that adultery may bring shame and betrayal of trust as well as risking the consequence of divine sanctions and decay.

The Holy Quran and the Holy Bible are unanimous on this.

The Holy Quran 17 : 32 refers, ‘’ Never come nigh to adultery : For it is an indecent deed and an evil way.’’

The Holy Bible Matthew 5 : 27–28 equally emphasizes on sexual sins.

‘’You have heard that it was said don’t do the sin of adultery. But I tell you that, if a person looks at a woman and wants to sin sexually with her, then that person has already done that sin with the woman in his mind.’’

The wisdom of avoiding adultery is captured in the Holy Bible Proverbs 5 : 3–14, ‘’For the lips of a strange woman drop as an honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil:

4 But her end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a twoedged sword.

5 Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold on hell.

6 Lest thou shouldest ponder the path of life, her ways are moveable, that thou canst not know them.

7 Hear me now therefore, O ye children, and depart not from the words of my mouth.

8 Remove thy way far from her, and come not nigh the door of her house:

9 Lest thou give thine honour unto others, and thy years unto the cruel:

10 Lest strangers be filled with thy wealth; and thy labours be in the house of a stranger;

11 And thou mourn at the last, when thy flesh and thy body are consumed,

12 And say, How have I hated instruction, and my heart despised reproof;

13 And have not obeyed the voice of my teachers, nor inclined mine ear to them that instructed me!

14 I was almost in all evil in the midst of the congregation and assembly.’’

The Holy Quran, therefore warns that we should avoid adultery with a case study of the penalty of flogging as a preventive measure from plunging oneself into the wrath of God; if and only if one wants to remain a believer.

The Holy Quran 24 : 2 refers, ‘’ The woman and the man guilty of fornication,-flog each of them with a hundred stripes : let not compassion move you in their case, in a matter prescribed by Allah; if ye believe in Allah in the Last Day : And let a party of the believers witness their punishment.’’

Adultery 2

Since the punishment for adultery and fornication is socaiily lower than the spiritual consequence and that in any of the ways, adultery can create bad blood, big fight and poisonous feud.

The believers must make it mandatory for themselves to keep chastity against all odds and avoid keeping of bad company not to become victims of people’s snares to slander their names.

The Holy Quran 24 : 23 warns all of us. ‘’ Those who slander chaste, indiscreet and believing women are cursed this life and in the Hereafter : For them is a grievous chastisement.’’

Adultery can ruin avoid it, therefore, and role model exemplary lifestyles as we step into the new year.
