How the Prophet (PBUH) saved a young man from committing sins?

SHAFAQNA – The Prophet of Islam (PBUH) was attending the Mosque when among the large crowd suddenly a group of people started shouting. The Prophet (PBUH) asked: What is happening? They said: A rude young person has come and saying let me go the Prophet (PBUH) to ask permission for adultery. The Prophet (PBUH) said: Let him come near. They let him come near and he stood in front of the Prophet (PBUH) and said: Give me permission for adultery. The Prophet (PBUH) asked him: Do you like the same happens to your mother or daughter or sister? He replied: No, I never give such permission.

The Prophet (PBUH) said: Other people also do not agree that their mother, sister or daughter do such a thing. That young man felt regretful and asked for forgiveness. The Prophet (PBUH) placed his hand on the chest of that young man and prayed: O’ God, make this young man’s heart clean, protect him from immorality and forgive his sins. After that occasion, the young man hated immorality. In this event, the Prophet of Islam (PBUH) by showing the young man the right way saved him from immoral behaviour [1].
