The main point of Ayah 5 of Surah Al-Mominoon

SHAFAQNA – Ayah 5 of Surah Al-Mominoon says: “Those (the believers) who guard their private parts.” This holy verse refers to one of the most important characteristics of the believers which is to avoid any unchastity, and protect one’s private parts from improper and Haram desires and lusts. The person who follows his/her own desires and tries all the time to fulfill his/her lusts in any possible way, becomes deaf and dumb. Imam Ali (AS) described the worshippers of the world and those who follow their own lusts and desires by saying: Lusts kill the wisdom of the one, who worships the world, and (love of/worship of) the world kills his/her heart [1].
