BY HAZRAT MOULANA HAKEEM AKHTHAR SAHEB RAHMATULLAHI ALAYH

 

v  Due to the evil of sins, one is deprived of the knowledge of Deen.

v  One’s sustenance decreases i.e. the Barakah of Rizq goes away. Despite one’s sustenance appearing to be plentiful, very little benefit is derived from it. It will be spent away in sickness, anxieties, and wastage.

v  The sinner experiences a kind of terror from Allah Ta’ala.

v  One gets a feeling of fear for people. In particular, one fears the company of the pious even more and will be deprived of the blessings of the company of the illustrious servants of Allah Ta’ala.

v  The sinner will experience difficulties in most of his affairs.

v  The sinner’s heart becomes darkened. Due to the evil of sins, a person becomes involved in innovations, deviation and ignorance that will eventually destroy him.

v  Due to sins weakness of the heart occursi.e. the courage to do virtuous acts keeps on diminishing until it fades away completely. Since the body is dependent on the heart, it too becomes weak. It is for this very reason that though the kuffaar appear healthy and strong, they could not stand in front of the Sahaabah Radiallahu Anhum.

v  A person is deprived of the Taufeeq to do pious acts until gradually all good deeds are left out by the evil of sins.

v  Life becomes shorter and the Barakah of life disappears.

v  One sin becomes the cause of another sin, thus sins become a habit and the giving up of sins becomes difficult.

v  By committing sins, the intention of repentance becomes weak to such an extent that a person is completely deprived of the Taufeeq of making Taubah and eventually dies in this condition.

v  After some days of sinning, the evil of sins leaves one’s heart, then shame and modesty is also lost. Thus sins are committed openly and one is distanced from the mercy and forgiveness of Allah Ta’ala.

v  Every sin is the inheritance of some of the enemies of Allah Ta’ala. It is as though this person becomes the inheritor of those cursed nation who originated that sin. In the Hadith it is mentioned that he who imitates a nation will be reckoned amongst them. Therefore do not delay in repenting.

v  A sinner loses status and becomes worthless in the sight of Allah Ta’ala. Thus the creation also has no respect for him. Even though the people might apparently honour him because of their greed (i.e. they want something from him) or out of fear for him, no one will have true respect for him. Allah Ta’ala says “He who Allah Ta’ala disgraces, there shall be none to honour him”.

v  The misfortune of sins not only affects the sinner but other creations as well, even animals curse the sinner.

v  Sins cause the mind to become weak and the intelligence to diminish. Commission of sins is proof of one’s foolishness.

v  By sinning a person loses shame and modesty. When shame is lost a person does the worst of things.

v  The greatness of Allah Ta’ala comes out of the heart. When the greatness of Allah Ta’ala no longer remains in the heart then this person has no respect in the sight of Allah Ta’ala. This person becomes disgraced in the eyes of the people and becomes discarded.

v  Blessings are snatched away. Misfortunes and difficulties are found. When a person is taken to task, he will be given the punishment of dunya and aakhirah together.

v  Titles of respect and honour are snatched away and titles of disgrace are referred to a sinner.

v  Shaytaan overpowers a sinner and easily drowns his limbs in sin.

v  Peace of mind is lost. One fears all the time that somebody should not see one, and that one should not lose their respect. Thus life becomes depressing.

v  By committing a sin continually, that sin is embedded in the heart to such an extent that when a person is on his death bed, he is unable to recite the Kalimah.

v  By sinning, one loses hope in the mercy of Allah Ta’ala. By sinning, one does not make Taubah and dies in this condition.

v  By committing a sin a black dot appears on the heart. By making Taubah it disappears otherwise it keeps on increasing, and this causes the ability to accept the truth to leave one.
