One day I commit fornication and the other day I fast; if this can become expiation for the sin.’ Ali ibn al-Husayn, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, said, ‘There is not anything more beloved to Allah, most Majestic, most Glorious, than obedience to Him and not to disobey Him. So you must not fornicate and you must not fast.’ Abu Ja‘far, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, pulled him to himself holding his hand and said, ‘O fornicator, you do the deeds of the people of hell and hope to enter paradise?”’
