Effects of Sin

A Summary of the Effects of Sins

From "Al Jawwab al Kaafi, by Imam Ibn Qayyim al Jawziyyah (rahmatullahi 'alaihi)

*ONE* The Prevention of Knowledge: Knowledge is a light which Allah throws into the heart and disobedience extinguishes this light.

Imam Shaafi'ee said:

  • I complained to Wakee' about the weakness of my memory
  • So he ordered me to abandon disobedience
  • And informed me that the knowledge is light
  • And that the light of Allah is not given to the disobedient

*TWO* The Prevention of Sustenance: Just as Taqwaa brings about sustenance, the abandonment of Taqwaa causes poverty. There is nothing which can bring about sustenance like the abandonment of disobedience

*THREE* The prevention of obedience (to Allah). If there was no other punishment for sin other than that it prevents one from obedience to Allah then this would be sufficient.

*FOUR* Disobedience weakens the heart and the body. Its weakening the heart is something which is clear. Disobedience does not stop weakening it until the life of the heart ceases completely.
