A few ill-informed Saalikeen have this great misconception: They believe that, when their hearts are inclined towards a certain sin, they should commit this sin so that their hearts may find contentment and be at ease.
They believe that this will cause the desire for this sin to cease. They believe that, subsequently, their desires will decrease and they will then be able to leave the sin completely and repent (make taubah). They then become greatly involved in this calamity.
This is a very serious misconception and a deception of Shaytaan, because the more you commits a sin, the more your desire for that sin increases and the greater its demands upon your Nafs becomes. The only remedy for sin is not to commit the sin at all. [Anwarus Siraj, pg. 19]
