Q. Can a man fantasize of strange women? Is it allowed?
A. It should be well understood that just as it is Haraam to commit adultery and fornication, to fantasize about it is also Haraam and tantamount to committing adultery and fornication of the mind. (Shaami 5/263)
Unfortunately, this has become a common sickness amongst people nowadays that has deprived them of the true enjoyment and bliss of life. May Ta’ala protect us all from Haraam and may He grant us clean and pure minds and thoughts. Ameen.
Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
