Answer:

 

Zina with Sister in Law

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 23 Surah Muminoon verses 1-7:

1 The Believers must (eventually) win through

2 Those who humble themselves in their prayers;

3 (And those) Who avoid vain talk;

4 (And those) Who are active in deeds of charity;

5 (And those) Who abstain from sex

6 Except with those joined to them in the marriage bond, or (the captives) whom their right hands possess; for (in their case) they are free from blame.


7 But those whose desires exceed those limits, are transgressors

 

Islam has made it permissible only to conjugate with ones legally wedded wife or wives! To have a sexual relationship with any other than ones legal spouse is absolutely, completely, and utterly prohibited in Islam! The act and sin of sex outside of the sacred institution of marriage (zina) is so hated and so despised by Allah Subhanah, that the prescribed punishment for zina (adultery) in Shariah is to be stoned to death; and if one does not seek sincere repentance for their heinous crime of zina, their punishment for their heinous sin in the Hereafter will be much much more severe and intolerable indeed!

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 17 Surah Israa verse 32:

Do not even go near zina (fornication or adultery) for it is a very indecent thing and a very evil way!

 

The sin of zina is heinous enough alone, but to perform this atrocious and monstrous act with the sister of one owns wife would be a crime beyond compare! Such is the sanctity of the blood-relations which Allah Subhanah has created for humankind, that even though a sister-in-law is a non-mehram, it is absolutely prohibited in Shariah for one to marry two sisters at one and the same time; and the main wisdom behind this prohibition is the sanctity and harmony between the two blood-sisters should never be disturbed!

 

One can only imagine the rift and ill-will which would be created between one sister towards her own sister if the husband of one were to have illegal sexual intercourse with the sister of ones own wife! One should fear the chastisement of Allah Subhanah and the severe accounting that awaits each individual in the Presence of the Majestic Lord on that Inevitable Day of Judgment when every deed, whether done openly or secretly, will be laid bare and the shame, humiliation and disgrace such a deed would bring upon the guilty ones!

 

Your Question: and if your wifes sister is willing to have sex with you should you agree.

Regardless of whether the wifes sister is willing or unwilling, regardless even if the wife herself approves or dis-approves, regardless even of the approval of everyone in creation.Allah is our witness, to have an illegal sexual intercourse with anyone other than ones spouse is an heinous enough crime by itself; but to have an illegal sexual relationship with the sister of ones own wife would be an abomination in its extreme in the Sight of the Lord All-Mighty! And Allah is our witness, His Anger, His Wrath, His Punishment, His Chastisement and His Revenge which will descend upon the guilty ones will be unimaginable and intolerable indeed!

 

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 2.504 Narrated by Abu Huraira

The Prophet (saws) said, "Seven people will be shaded by Allah under His Shade on the Day when there will be no shade except His. They are:

(1)   a just ruler;

(2)   a young man who has been brought up in the worship of Allah, (i.e. he worships Allah Alone sincerely from his childhood),

(3)   a man whose heart is attached to the mosque (who offers the five compulsory congregational prayers in the mosque);

(4)   two persons who love each other only for Allah's sake and they meet and part in Allah's Cause only;

(5) a man who refuses the call of a charming woman of noble birth for an illegal sexual intercourse with her, and says to her: I am afraid of Allah;

(6)   a person who practices charity so secretly that his left hand does not know what his right hand has given (i.e. nobody knows how much he has given in charity).

(7)   a person who remembers Allah in seclusion and his eyes get flooded with tears."

 

My dear and beloved brother in Islam, as much as the woman might approach you for having illegal sexual intercourse with her, and as much as you might desire her.if you could only bring yourself to refuse her invitation for the sincere fear of Allah Subhanah your Lord, Allah is our witness brother, Allah would honor and reward you with His Shade on the Day of Judgment, a Day when there will be absolutely no other shade from the excruciating heat of the sun, a Day the duration of which is 50,000 years, a Day whose terror will make a child an aged old man, a Day when every man will seem to be in a drunken state but they will not have consumed any intoxication..!

 

My dear and beloved brother in Islam, if you refuse her invitation only because you fear Allah, Allah is our witness brother, you cannot imagine the unending rewards this small sacrifice of your desires will bring upon you in the Presence of your Lord Most Supreme! If you can bring yourself to refuse her invitation only because of the fear of Allah, Allah is our witness brother, you might be amongst the most fortunate and honored people on that Inevitable and Tumultuous Day of Resurrection!

 

My dear and beloved brother in Islam, if you study the seven kinds of people who have been promised the Shade of Allah on the Day of Judgment, you will realize that six of those seven kinds are those people who would have to strive all their lives to fulfill the requirements.but it rarely ever happens that a woman of noble birth invites one to have illegal sexual relationship with her..!!!

 

Blessed are those indeed who control their desires and refuse her invitation for the fear of Allah Subhanah; and indeed unfortunate are those who accept her invitation and bring upon themselves the Displeasure of Allah Subhanah!

 

May Allah guide you to protect your chastity, and give you the wisdom and the courage to make a decision which will almost guarantee you a place in the Shade of Allah Subhanah, on a Day when there will be no shade except His!

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

 

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,

 

Burhan
