Is Sadd E Zariya Law Related To Probabilities?
Hello Assallam u alaikum
my question is for example A man living in boys hostel and is pious with good haya. he understands that if he takes out his phone and while using phone if he watches a female with lustful stare, the probability of him actually committing Zina because of this action for example 3% (just a vague number only for example). and because Allah has commanded not to see someone with lustful stare, then doing it is sin.
if later he gets a scholarship from America for studying there for 5 years. His mathematical and overthinking mind, makes him realize that now if he goes to America, living there alone, he would be going out of house more frequently for recreational and work purposes, getting exposed to girls with more revealing clothes in his surroundings, unmarried relationships being very common. and he would be living there for 5 years.
then he realizes his time at hostel, if at that time when he was sitting in hostel, the chances of him getting into Zina because of that lustful stare was 3% and even then Allah disallowed such an action and it was a sin. then here in this situation his going to America for 5 years would comparatively have more probability of him falling in Zina. let’s say it’s 710% if he goes to America. then it must be higher sin that that.
keeping such probabilities in mind, if he comes to conclusion his going to America is also a sin, maybe even more than lustful stare. will he be wrong? does Islam directs us to use such probabilities and consider things sinful like this? Lustful stare is a sin because Allah himself prohibited him, but if a person rigidly sticks to sadd e Zariya principle, he might use such probabilities to say they going to America in above cases would be sinful (even though Quran or Sunnah never disallowed it). is this thing Islamically correct?
