What is the real definition of Zina? Is oral sex considered Zina? (One of my friends got involved in it) and wants to know.
Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the World; and blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon all his Family and Companions.
The Zina for which the Had (certain punishment prescribed in Sharia) would be imposed on is penetration of a glans penis into a forbidden vagina. The other acts such as kissing, hugging, and caressing are no doubt among the minor acts of Zina but there is no Had imposed on them. But, doing so is a sin and whoever indulges in that sin would be punished. And also he should make sincere repentance from this sin by giving up it, feeling sorrow for what he has done and asking forgiveness of Allah. Allah knows best.
