Some Fiqhi Laws, A Discussion

Adapted from: ""Marriage, A Gift for the Youth" by: "Sajid Ali"

Imam al-Baqir (as) says, “Refrain from having sexual intercourse in places where an understanding child can see you and follows your action to such an extent that he can narrate to others what he has seen.”

The author of Wasailush Shia narrates a tradition from the Holy Prophet (S) that, “I swear by God if an aware child sees a couple having sexual intercourse or listens to their talk or even hears their breathing sounds then such a child can never succeed in his life. Whether the child is a male or a female it will get involved in adultery at one stage or the other in his or her life.”

The Messenger of Islam (S) says, ”When a girl reaches the age of six, she should not be kissed by any male. Similarly women should not kiss those boy who have crossed the age of seven.”

Imam ar-Ridha’ (as) even goes to the extent of saying that when a girl crosses the age of six then no Na-Mehram should make her sit in his lap. [Wasailush Shia, Vol. 5, Pg. 29].

The Holy Prophet of Islam (S) admonished his followers to make their children sleep in different beds when they reach the age of understanding. He says, “When your children reach the age of seven, make them sleep in different beds. [Biharul Anwar, Vol. 23, pg. 114].
