      • qur'an condemns it and so doing so it goes against Allah: lessening the chances of paradise as you are seen as inpure.
      • family is the most important part of Muslim life and to have a child out of wedlock does not set a good example for the children and it is the wrong environment
      • sex is a gist from allah to be able to procreate for him, to have sex without intention of a child and out of wedlock not only abuses allahs kindness but shows you do not follow the shari'ah law.
