Intercourse الجِماعُ

1. He (‘a) was asked about intercourse, so he said: [It is] shame that is lifted, loins that are joined and the closest thing to insanity. Persistence in it makes one senile and revival from it brings regret. When lawful, its fruit is a son who, if he lives, subjects [one] to trial and if he dies, causes sadness.

1ـ سُئِلَ ـ عليه السّلام ـ عنِ الجِماعِ، فقال: حَياءٌ يُرْتَفَعُ، وعَوْراتٌ تَجْتَمِعُ، أشبَهُ شَْيء بِالجُنُونِ، اَلإصرارُ عَلَيْهِ هَرَمٌ، والإفاقَةُ مِنْهُ نَدَمٌ، ثَمَرَةُ حَلالِهِ الوَلَدُ، إنْ عاشَ فَتَنَ، وإنْ ماتَ حَزَنَ..
