Is haram weaving in Islam

Declaration by the High Council for Religious Affairs

The messages that all the prophets sent by Allah Almighty to their society and of Islam, the last religion, have indispensable bases of belief, principles, worship, normative rules that regulate social life within the framework of the truths that were revealed by Allah . These are the elements that essentially make up religion. With the divine facts that it brings, Islam is the ultimate right belief that answers the existential questions of humanity, organizes human and social life in the most appropriate way, and aims at uniting the world in accordance with human dignity make a livable place. In order for mankind to achieve this goal, Islam has introduced basic rules to protect life, conscience, generation, intellect, property and the environment and to remove the threats against them and asked its followers to observe these rules with full mindfulness. It is also an approach within the framework of the aforementioned principles and rules to view all forms and types of illegitimate sexual relations as a sin and to prohibit them. This approach is also emphasized in the Torah and the Bible, which are the sacred books before the Quran.

In this context, Islam expressly and clearly states that sexual intercourse can only take place between a man and a woman whose marriage is halal and is based on a valid marriage contract. Sexual relationships outside of this legitimate circle are referred to as adultery in Islam. Almighty Allah has spoken of adultery, which is one of the greatest dangers threatening the family situation, which is the core of society and determines its future, and which disrupts the social order, the loss of generations, the loss of shame, a human virtue and causes the development of many diseases, declares "it is an extremely ugly act and a very bad way" and decreed that this outrage should neither be committed nor approached (Al-Isra, 17/32; see Al -Furqan 25/68; Mümhehine 60/12). The same provision was in the holy books before the Qur'an, and it was declared that those who committed this outrage would be punished with heavy penalties (Start, 20/13; 5th Deuteronomy 5/18; 22nd Dec. ./24; Matthew 15/19; Mark 7/21).

In addition to adultery, Islam also expressly forbids homosexuality in all its forms. In the Qur'an it is clearly revealed that the homosexual relationship is a very ugly act and means breaking through the boundaries set by Allah (An-Nisa 4 / 15-16 April; Al-A'raf, 7 / 80- 84; the poets 26 / 161-175). The same provisions were contained in the books downloaded prior to the Qur'an, and it was reported that these acts represented a great sin and immorality (Leviticus 18/22; 20/13; Epistle to Romans 1/27; First Epistle to Corinthians , 6.9).

The most important wisdom in prohibiting adultery and homosexuality is the same wisdom in legalizing marriage and family. And this is to lead a decent and legitimate sex life in accordance with the codes of creation and to ensure a healthy continuation of the human generation. Allah Teala has forbidden any act that contradicts human nature, i.e. the physical and spiritual being that it possesses through creation. From this point of view, there is perfect harmony between human nature and religion. Religion does not contain an order or prohibition that is contrary to human nature. Because Allah wants man to keep his first creation, his pure and essential nature. Allah Teala, points out this fact to the Romans in the Sura: “As Hanif, with all your existence and the natural disposition that Allah created for people, turn to religion! There is no change in Allah's creation. That is the right religion; but most people don't know ”(the Romans, 30/30).

Another piece of wisdom in the prohibition of adultery and homosexuality is the legitimate continuation of the human generation. Allah, who created us and made us alive, has decided that the continuation of the human generation can only take place within marriage, a partnership that corresponds to human nature and thus formed family institution. Accordingly, all types of illegitimate relationships that are legally and morally harmful to the individual are forbidden by our religion.

At this point, the following should be noted: The Presidency for Religious Affairs, which is a constitutional institution, and the High Council for Religious Affairs, the highest decision-making and advisory body of the Presidency on religious matters, have been mandated "the Society" as stated in the relevant law to educate about religion "and to impart authentic religious knowledge to society in the light of the most important sources and methods of the Islamic religion". To label the declaration that all illegitimate sexual intercourse is a great sin, made as a requirement of that responsibility, as a generation of "hate speech" and discrimination is extremely unfair and irresponsible. Furthermore, such a discourse is a sin because it shows the last religion sent to all of humanity, Islam itself, the book of that religion, the Koran and the Prophet Mohammed as the source of "hatred". It also means offending the religious and spiritual values ​​that our people have adopted.

It is advised that the Presidency of Religious Affairs and the Presidency's High Religious Affairs Council will continue their work, within the limits of their duties and powers conferred by law, to educate our people on the basic principles, rules and goals of the Islamic religion.
