What is zina? When is it said that a person has committed zina? Questions like these have become common as our societies become more liberal and zina is becoming more common practice.

Zina means fornication and adultery, and it is considered a major sin in Islam. Fornication is the sexual intercourse that takes place between two people who are not married to each other, and adultery is sexual intercourse between two people, one or both of which are married, but not married to their co-adulterer.

“And come not near to unlawful sex. Verily, it is a Faahishah (i.e. anything that transgresses its limits: a great sin), and an evil way that leads one to hell unless Allah forgives him”(al-Isra’ 17:32)

This is a verse of the Quran where Allah (ta’ala) specifically forbids zina. In fact, according to many texts, zina is a great sin just after shirk and murder, and graver than alcohol or gambling.

“And those who invoke not any other ilaah (god) along with Allah, nor kill such person as Allah has forbidden, except for just cause, nor commit illegal sexual intercourse” [al-Furqaan 25:68].

Zina is mentioned along with shirk and murder, two of the greatest sins in Islam.

The Punishment for Zina

There are many sins that do not have a punishment administered by humans in this world because their punishment is only with Allah (ta’ala). But for zina, both fornicators and adulterers have their punishments as stipulated in the Sharia’ah.

The messenger of Allah (‎ﷺ) said: “When an unmarried man, commits adultery with an unmarried woman, they should receive one hundred lashes and be exiled for a year. If they (fornicate while they) were married, they shall receive hundred lashes and be stoned to death. Reported by Muslim.” (Bulugh al-Maram)

Because of the severity of the punishment for zina, the ways of convicting someone of zina are not so easy.

For a man or woman to be convicted of zina, there has to be four credible Muslims who witnessed the sexual intercourse, or the parties involved in zina confesses, or an unmarried woman becomes pregnant.

These are the conditions that have to be satisfied before someone can be convicted of zina. You cannot just assume that two people are committing zina and therefore label them fornicators or adulterers. That is What is zina? When is it said that a person has committed zina?
