The Ill Effects of
Sin Part 2
Whenever he is entrusted, he betrays (proves dishonest).
2. Whenever he
speaks, he tells a lie.
3. Whenever he makes a covenant, he proves
4. Whenever he quarrels, he behaves in a very imprudent, evil
and insulting manner.” 
Narrated by ‘Aishah that the Prophet
(sallallahu alaihe wa-sallam) said “The most hated person to Allaah is the
one who is most quarrelsome of the opponents” 
Narrated by Abu
Huraira that Allaah’s Messenger (sallallahu alaihe wa-sallam) said “Part of a
man’s good observance of Islaam is that he leaves the things which do not
concern him” ( i.e. avoiding interference with other’s matters).
Narrated by Ibn Abbas that Allaah Messenger
(sallallahu alaihe wa-sallam) passed by two graves and said “Both of them are
being tortured, and they are not being tortured for a major sin. This one used
not to save himself from being soiled with his urine, and the other used to go
about with calumnies” 
The Qur’aan: Narrated by Uthman,
The Prophet (sallallahu alaihe wa-sallam) said: “The best among you (Muslims)
are those who learn the Qur’aan and teach it (to others).” 
Masood reported that the Prophet (sallallahu alaihe wa-sallam) once said
“Whoever reads a single letter from Allaah’s Book will receive a blessing and
each blessing is worth ten times its value.” Abu Umaamah reported that
the Prophet (sallallahu alaihe wa-sallam) said “Recite the Qur’aan for verily
on the Day of Resurrection it will act as an intercessor for its companions
(those who read it often).
Prayer ( Salat )  To offer
salat at its appointed time as narrated by Abdullah ibn Masud ‘I asked the
Prophet (sallallahu alaihe wa-sallam) Which deed is the dearest to Allaah ? He
said, “To performs-Salat at their early fixed times.......” Bearing
in mind salat is to performed as the prophet ordered us to pray “Perform your
salat the way you see me performing them” 
Fasting (Saum) and
Charity (Sadaqah) Mu’adh bin Jabal narrates: "The Prophet (sallallahu
alaihe wa-sallam) said to him “May I show you the gates of goodness ? (They
are) Fasting is a screen from hell, As-Sadaqah extinguishes the sins as the
water extinguishes the fire, Standing in prayer by a slave of Allaah during the
last third part (Tahajjud) of a night” Then the Prophet (sallallahu alaihe
wa-sallam) recited (V.32:16) “Their sides forsake their beds”.
Abu Huraira narrates that the Prophet (sallallahu
alaihe wa-sallam) said “Everyday two angels come down from the heaven and one
of them says ‘O Allaah ! Compensate every person who spends in your cause,’ and
the other (angel) says, ‘O Allaah ! Destroy every miser.’” 
Reported by Anas “Seeking
knowledge is obligatory on every Muslim” 
Reported by Abu
ad-Dardaa that he heard the Prophet (sallallahu alaihe wa-sallam) say “If
anyone travels on a road in search of knowledge, Allaah will cause him to travel
on one of the roads of paradise. The angels will lower their wings because of
their pleasure with one who seeks knowledge, and forgiveness will be asked for
him by the inhabitants of the heavens and earth and the fish in the depth of the
Adhering to the Sunnah
Abu Huraira that the Prophet (sallallahu alaihe wa-sallam) said “I have left
with you two things, if you hold on firmly to them , you will never go astray;
Allaah’s Book and my Sunnah.”  Abu Huraira narrates that Allaah’s
Messenger (sallallahu alaihe wa-sallam) said, “All my Ummah will enter
paradise except those who refuse” They asked O Allaah’s Messenger ! who will
refuse ? He Said “Whoever obeys me will enter paradise, and whoever disobeys me
is the one who refuses (to enter paradise)” 
Abdullah ibn Masoud relates that Allaah’s
Messenger (Pubh) drew a line for them one day and then Said “This is Allaah’s
path”, then he drew several lines (branching off) to the right and to the
left and said, “These are the paths (of Misguidance) on each of which is a
devil inviting people to follow it” and then he recited (the verse) “Verily this
is my path, leading straight, so follow it. And do not follow the (other) paths
for they will scatter you about from (Allaah’s) path. This is His Command to you
in order that you may be conscious of Allaah.”
reported that the Prophet (sallallahu alaihe wa-sallam) said “Whoever
introduces something new into this religion of ours which does not belong in it
will have it rejected”  (i.e., it will not be accepted by Allaah.
Imitating the Kufaar
The Prophet (sallallahu alaihe
wa-sallam) has warned us in regards to imitating the Kufaar, Abu Saeed
al-Khudree reported that Allaah’s Messenger (sallallahu alaihe wa-sallam) said:
“You will follow the practices of your predecessors, inch by inch and yard by
yard, so much so that if they were to enter a lizard’s hole you would also
follow them.” He then asked if he meant the Jews and the Christians and He
replied “Who Else?”  The Prophet (sallallahu alaihe wa-sallam) also warned
us saying: “Whoever resembles a people, he is one of them” 
The Prophet (sallallahu alaihe wa-sallam) also cursed men who tried to resemble
woman and women who tried to resemble men.
We ask Allaah, the Most
High, that He turns the misguided of this Ummah back to the guidance, and that
he makes us all to support one another and aid one another in carrying out good
and righteousness until we return to this Ummah its lost glory and honor, Indeed
He is fully able and having the power to do that.
