“I have been sent to perfect high moral standards.” This statement of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) summarizes his message to humanity.

The Prophet (peace be upon him) has come to stress and instill good morals among people. Thus, all the commands, rituals, rulings and dealings reinforce high morals. God the Almighty says,

Indeed, Allah orders justice and good conduct and giving to relatives and forbids immorality and bad conduct and oppression. He admonishes you that perhaps you will be reminded. (An-Nahl 16:90)

Since its onset, Islam has fought immorality by uprooting it through preventing its causes and sources. For example, Allah says,

And do not approach unlawful sexual intercourse. Indeed, it is ever an immorality and is evil as a way. (Al-Israa’ 17:32)

Scholars said that this verse explains that one is forbidden to approach the actions that may lead to immorality, including lustful gazing, improper speeches, mixing with women, etc.

The Sunnah of the Prophet also constantly warned against immorality and informed of extreme punishment for those who indulge in it.

Samurah ibn Jundub said, that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said that he had a vision in which two men (angels) came to me and woke me up and said to me, ‘Proceed!’ I set out with them… We came across something like a tannur (a kind of baking oven, a pit usually clay-lined for baking bread).” I (the narrator) think the Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “In that oven there was much noise and voices.” The Prophet added, “We looked into it and found naked men and women, and behold, a flame of fire was reaching to them from underneath, and when it reached them they cried loudly. I asked, ‘Who are these?’… They said to me, “Those naked men and women whom you saw in a construction resembling an oven, they are the adulterers and the adulteresses.” (Al-Bukhari)
