One of the earlier scholars said, “I do not fear a beast of prey when attacking a devout young man. I just fear a juvenile when sitting with him.” More than that he said, ‘A man should not sleep with a juvenile together.” It is unlawful for a man as scholars argued, to stay alone with a juvenile in a house, a shop or a bathroom as in the case of men and women.
Among juveniles are those who may be more beautiful than women. He may be most fascinating. It is easy to justify what you do of evil with him than is with a woman. Therefore, such deep feelings are most likely unlawful.
Numerous maxims of the early Muslims were postulated as warnings from keeping near of them.
Once, Sufyan Ath- Thawri entered a public bath and a handsome boy entered after him. Sufyan said, “Get him out because when ever I see a woman I see a Devil but whenever I see a handsome boy I see a group of devils.”
A man visited Imam Ahmad (rh) accompanied with a handsome boy. Imam Ahmad said, “Who is that?” The man replied, “My nephew.” Imam Ahmad said, “Do not come again with him. Nor should you walk with him lest the people who do not know you think something bad about you.
