  • Prevention of  knowledge: Knowledge is a  light which Allah throws into the heart and
  • http://muslimvillage.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/prayer-beads-by-mrehan.jpg
  • disobedience extinguishes this  light.
Imam  Ash-Shafi`i said: “I complained to Wakee` about the weakness of my memory, so he  ordered me to abandon disobedience and informed me that knowledge is light. He  said that the light of Allah is not given to the disobedient.”
  • Prevention of  sustenance: Just as  righteousness brings about sustenance, the abandonment of righteousness causes  poverty. There is nothing which can bring about sustenance like the abandonment  of sins.
  • Prevention of  obedience (to Allah): If there was no  other punishment for sin except that it prevents one from obeying Allah then  this would be sufficient.
  • Disobedience weakens  the heart : The fact that it  weakens the heart is clear. Disobedience continues to weaken the heart until its  life ceases completely.
  • Disobedience reduces  one's lifespan and destroys any blessings: Just as  righteousness increases one’s lifespan, sinning reduces it.
  • Legacy of the  cursed: Every type of  disobedience is the legacy of a nation from among those which Allah destroyed.  Sodomy is a legacy of the people of Lot, taking more than one's due right and  giving what is less is a legacy of the people of Shu`aib, spreading mischief and  corruption is a legacy of the people of Pharaoh and pride, including arrogance  and tyranny, is a legacy of the people of Hud. So the disobedient one is somehow  a part of those nations who were the enemies of Allah.
  • Disobedience is a  cause of the servant being held in contempt by his Lord: Al-Hasan Al-Basri  said: “They became contemptible in (His sight) so they disobeyed Him. If they  were honorable (in His sight) He would have protected them.”
  • Effect of sins on  others: The ill-effects of  the sinner fall upon those around him as well as the animals as a result of  which they are touched by harm.
  • Living in  sin: The servant  continues to commit sins until they become very easy for him and seem  insignificant in his heart and this is a sure sign of destruction. Every time a  sin becomes insignificant in the sight of the servant it becomes great in the  sight of Allah.
  • Disobedience brings  humiliation and lowliness: Every aspect of  honor lies in the obedience of Allah. Ibn Al-Mubarak said: “I have seen sins  kill the hearts. And humiliation is inherited by their continuity. The  abandonment of sins gives life to the hearts. And the prevention of your soul is  better for it.”
  • Disobedience  corrupts the intellect: The intellect has  light and disobedience extinguishes this light. When the light of the intellect  is extinguished it becomes weak and deficient.
  • Sealing of the  heart: When disobedience  increases, the servant’s heart becomes sealed so that he becomes of those who  are heedless. The Exalted said: [But no! A stain has been left on their  hearts on account of what they used to earn (that is, their  actions)] (Al-Mutaffifin 83: 14).
  • Sins cause various  types of corruption to occur in the land: Corruption of the  water, the air, the plants, the fruit, and the dwelling places. The Exalted  said: [Mischief has appeared on the land and the sea on account of what the  hands of men have earned; that He may give them a taste of some of (the actions)  they have done, in order that they may return] (Ar-Rum 30: 41).
  • Disappearance of  modesty: Modesty is the  essence of the life of the heart and is the basis of every good. Its  disappearance is the disappearance of all that is good. The Prophet (peace and  blessings be upon him) said:“Modesty is goodness, all of it.”
  • Sins weaken and  reduce the magnification of Allah the Almighty in the heart of the  servant.
  • Sins are the cause  of Allah forgetting His servant: Sinning also causes  Allah to abandon him and leave him to fend for himself with his soul and his  Satan and in this is destruction from which no deliverance can be hoped  for.
  • Being removed from  the realm of benevolence: When a person’s  sins, benevolence is removed from his heart. When benevolence fills the heart it  prevents it from disobedience.
  • Disobedience causes  the favors (of Allah) to cease and makes His revenge lawful: No blessing ceases  to reach a servant except because of a sin, and no retribution is made lawful  upon him except because of a sin. Ali ibn Abi Talib (may Allah be pleased with  him) said: “No trial has descended except due to a sin and it (the trial) is not  repelled except by repentance.”
