Question

As-salamalekum wa rahamatullah wa
hidayatullah wa Barakatu; There are
Muslims who use the Concept of 'fitrat'
in order to defend their unIslamic
acts.They say that if they are flirting
then it is their fitrat and they cannot
help themselves avoid it.They say it is
in them from Allah or as in Blood.(May
Allah teach them a good lesson).Please
tell me what is Fitrat in Islam and how
is it relevant in the life of the Muslims
especially when it involves a Stiff
reconing?

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord
of the Worlds. I testify that there is
none worthy of worship except Allah,
and that Muhammad, sallallaahu 'alyhi
wa sallam, is His slave and Messenger.
The term Fitrah in Islam has many
meanings, among which is Tawheed
[belief in the Oneness of Allah] and the
natural disposition upon which Allah
created mankind. It might be that the
second meaning is the one that is
meant in the question. Men inclining
towards women is a natural matter [a
Fitrah], however, it is not permissible
to provide this as an evidence for
contradicting the teachings of the
Sharee’ah [Islamic Law].

It is the same One who put this Fitrah
in a human being who has prohibited
him from doing certain acts as a way of
testing him and trying him. Allah Says
(what means): {He] who created death
and life to test you [as to] which of you
is best in deed — and He is the Exalted
in Might, the Forgiving.} [Quran 67:2]
It is possible for a person to avoid such
matters, and they are not among the
matters that are impossible to abandon
or avoid. In addition to this, Allah has
legislated ways of satisfying one’s
desires in a lawful manner.
If it is possible to say that someone
may achieve his desires with whatever
he wishes, then this may lead to saying
something like it is permissible to
satisfy one’s desires through incest and
the like, and no person who is of sound
mind would say this.

On the other hand, we do not
understand exactly what you mean by
how the Fitrah is relevant in the life of
Muslims. In any case, this Fitrah should
be protected by facilitating what fulfils
these desires by what Allah has made
permissible, like facilitating marriage
for instance, and the like.
Allah Knows best.
