      :salams:

      First of all you don't have to be a scholar to know this.

      So I'll answer your question.

      Don't read it sis. Remember the angels that are recording your deeds. You are better off reading beneficial books. I have heard of the book, I haven't read it, the title itself says it all.

      Allah hu alam

      Why corrupt your mind with filth, dirty, grotesque, MINGING IT material?

      I hope that makes sense? Let me know, :-)

      Darul Ilm is the scholar here, I would definitely recommend him
      'Whatever it be wherein ye differ, the decision thereof is with Allah: such is Allah my Lord: In Him I trust, and to Him I turn.' The Holy Qu'ran Al Shura (Consultation)

      So, which of the favours of your lord will you deny? ~ Surah Ar Rahman

            it's pornography. just because it is in word form doesn't make it any less
            If Allah & his Messenger :saw: ordered us to breathe in a certain way, we would say: "سَمِعْنَا وَأَطَعْنَا We hear & We obey"

                This does bring up an interesting point though. We know porn is haram, but many sisters read romance novels with sex scenes sprinkled along the pages. For some reason, we don't talk about the fitnas and problems with that even though there's a huge market for it.

                Sis, erotica is haram. To put it in plain terms, it's porn for the imagination. You may not see it, but if you read a book you start picturing how things are and if a book is all about sex.....it's better to stay away from it. May Allah protect us. Ameen.
                وَإِذَا سَأَلَكَ عِبَادِي عَنِّي فَإِنِّي قَرِيبٌ أُجِيبُ دَعْوَةَ الدَّاعِ إِذَا دَعَانِ فَلْيَسْتَجِيبُواْ لِي وَلْيُؤْمِنُواْ بِي لَعَلَّهُمْ يَرْشُدُونَ
                "And when My servants ask you (O Muhammad concerning Me, then answer them), I am indeed near (to them by My knowledge). I respond to the invocations of the supplicant when he calls on Me (without any mediator or intercessor). So let them obey Me and believe in Me, so that they may be led aright."
                Surah al-Baqarah ayah 186
                [2:186]

                  No offense to anyone but define erotica? If it it hardcore porn in words then yes it's equatable to porn. But if you are talking about a romance novel then i don't think they're the same.

                  Porn desensitizes you to reality, it makes you aggressive and violent towards women. It makes you feel you have a *right* to them, to have them in whichever way you please (whether she likes it or not) and it also removes the human aspect of sexual intimacy (no romance, tenderness, caressing etc) There was an excellent video on TED talks about this.

                  I'm sorry if I've been unnecessarily graphic but i personally feel this is a huge problem today and that it should be addressed and confronted openly.

                  EDIT: I'm not discussing whether it is allowed to read or not. Just the comparison to pornography.

                      What's with the apathetic smiley? Listen to what Nawar, brightesthour, and Pippin are saying. From what I've seen, you say you're a feminist and it looks like you hate men, and then you want to read erotica? You should talk to sister's here, insha'Allah, because it seems you have underlying issues that need to be sorted. Be careful cuz you could end up straying off the path of Islam if you don't check yo'self. I'm just concerned about your thought process from your posts.

But constant glorification of Allah's name has so overpossessed their wits that their hearts are overawed and their lips sealed. When they get established in this stage they hasten towards righteoussness."

                        Let's put it this way. Would you be okay with your husband watching pornography?

                        The same way, I'm sure any man wouldn't want his wife getting aroused by words written by someone else. Erotica is porn in word format.

                              there could be a twist to this post ...

                              it could be leading to some anti-men ideology or some study done by a university of 12 or so subjects .....

                              wait for the punch line.

                                I don't know missmirah02 that well, but I have had a similar hunch from what I've seen, and you do seem to have valid points. Perhaps missmirah02 can explain herself.

                                I didn't know what wumming was, but looked it up and this it what it means:

                                Wumming
                                The verb form of WUM (Wind-Up Merchant), a predominantly online phenomena of espousing contrary viewpoints purely to string people along and get a reaction from others. A mild-mannered form of trolling.
