Assalaam alaikum, Brother, I asked you to educate me as you clearly stated I was playing scholar. Rape is one person attacking a person, taking from a person, brutalizing a person, harming the body of another being sexually. There is no intimacy in rape. There is a victim and a perpetrator. Rape is not a sexual relief. The object of rape is more than sexual gratification. Zina does not attack, take or brutalize another person. It is the act of two or more who take delight in the physical act. They agree that they wish to partake in the act of love making. There is intimacy in zina. There are no victims. There are no victims in adultery. There may be seduction. Zina is fornication. You play. You have fun outside of marriage. I believe there is misunderstanding on the definition of rape and zina. I am not sure if there is a language barrier or cultural barrier. And rape is not limited to males. Females can rape, as well. This threat of this is the last time I will ask you is rude. It must be cultural. Islam treats women with respect. And it is not befitting a Believer.
