Effect's Of Sin

Whatever harm and hardship has befallen the people in their wealth or security, individuals or societies is due to their sins and their having neglected the commands of Allah (swt) and his prescribed laws, and their seeking judgment amongst the people by other than the prescribed laws of Allah (swt) – who created all of creation and is the most merciful to them than their mothers and fathers, and he is the One who knows better than themselves what is most beneficial for them.

Allah (swt), the Mighty and Majestic, say in His Book, so that we may realize and take warning, He, the Majestic and Most High, says :

The Holy Quran:
Ash-Shoora(Councel, Consultation) – 42:30
"Whatever misfortune happens to you, is because on the things your hands have wrought, and for many (of them) He grants forgiveness."

And He, the Most High says:

An-Nisaa’(Women) – 4:79
"Whatever good, (O man!) happens to thee, is from Allah. but whatever evil happens to thee, is from thy (own) soul. and We have sent thee as an apostle to (instruct) mankind. And enough is Allah for a witness."

Many people today attribute the misfortunes which befall them, whether relating to wealth and economics, or security are due to materialistic causes, this is due to their limited understanding and weakness of their Eemaan and their failure to reflect upon the Book of Allah (swt) and the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammed (saw).
