Is Fantasizing About Zina Haram in Islam?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I have one question that recently I used to think about having zina with different girls but it was only a thought. I never even think of doing it in real. So is it haram is islam?


A: Fantasizing is haraam in Islam. You should sincerely repent to Allah Ta’ala for committing this sin and make a firm resolve that you will not repeat this in the future. Consider how would you feel if others had the same feelings towards your sisters or daughters? Just as this will not be acceptable to you, similarly you should deal with others in the same way.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
