The Forbidden, Issues Of Great Importance That We Underestimate. Al-Muharramat (the forbidden) are the limits of Allaah (the Mighty and Magnificent). “These are the limits of Allaah, so do not approach them”. . Allaah has threatened whoever transgresses His limits and violates His sacraments stating (Glorified be He): “And whoever disobeys Allaah and His messenger and transgresses His limits – He will put him into the fire to abide eternally therein, and he will have a humilating punishment.” It is obligatory to avoid al-muharramaat in view of the saying of the prophet: “And whatever I forbade you, then avoid it and whatever I enjoined upon you, then fulfill as much of it as you able.” I ask Allaah guidance, success, and observance of His limits for myself and for my Muslim brothers. I ak Him (Glorified be He) to help us avoid al-muharramaat and protect us from sins and evil deeds, Allaah is the best protector and He is the Most Merciful.
