TINTENTION FOR SEXUAL INTERCOURSE

Hazrat Ali (Radiallahu Anhum) is reported to have said in his WASA

(advices):

"At the time of sexual intercourse, the following intentions should be made:

1. Protection against zina (adultery)

2. protection of the gaza from strange women

3. Attainment of pious and upright progeny who will serve Islam.

When intercourse is enjoyed with the correct intentions, then not only is an act of physical pleasure, but it also becomes an act of reward and Sawab.

In this regard the gist of a Hadith explains that even intercourse with one's wife is rewardable and regarded as Sadaqah.

The Sahaba (Radiyallahu-Anhum) were greatly astounded upon this- that here a man is gratifying his sexual lusts and desires and yet he is being rewarded for it? Rasulullah (Sallallahu-Alayhi-Wasallam) explained to them that had

this man gratified himself in a haram manner he would be punished for it, then why should he not be rewarded for satisfying himself in a Halaal manner? He will certainly be rewarded.

AT THE TIME OF SEEING AN ATTRACTIVE WOMAN

At times, the gaze involuntarily falls upon an attractive woman, which causes excitement of the passion. In such circumstances, what should be done? The Hadith provides guidance.

"When women emerge outdoors, they appear in the form of shaitaan, thus if any of you accidentally gaze at her and take fancy to her, he should consort with his wife, for she has the same that the other woman has." This will cleanse the heart form evil intentions, ideas and thoughts.

At the same time, the fire of passion and desire that was kindled, will be calmed and cooled in a lawful manner.
