Les effets de peche

by Gillette aka Hassan[uddin] Khaja

(Tiree de la livre d'Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziyya, "Al-Jawaab Al-Kaafi." Traduis de l'anglais par moi.)

Un: Le p飨頥mp꣨e la connaissance: Connaissance est une lumiere qu'Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) jete dans le couer et la desobeissance extermine cette lumiere.

Imam ash-Shafi'ee a dit:

J'ai cri a Wakee de ma faiblesse de ma memoire
Alors, il m'a commande abandonner desobeissance
Et il m'a informe que la connaissance est une lumiere
Et la lumiere d'Allah n'est pas donne a celui qui est insoumis

Deux: Le p飨頥mp꣨e l'entretien: ainsi que taqwa gagne l'entretien, son abandon gagne la pauvrete. Rien peux gagne l'entretien comme l'abandon de la desobeissance

Trois: Le p飨頥mpeche la culte [d'Allah]. S'il n'y avait pas un autre chatiment autrement que le peche empeche la culte, il serait suffisant

Quatre: La desobeissance infirme le coeur et le corps. La defaillant du coeur est une consequence claire. La desobeissance ne cesse pas l'infirmer jusqu'au moment que la vie du coeur cesse completement

Cinq: Desobeissance racourcit l'existence de la vie et detruit ses benedictions. Ainsi que le taqwa augment l'existence, desobeissance le racourcit

Six: Desobeissance seme ses graines et accouche de la desobeissance jusqu'a la division. La division de la desobeissance se durcit pour le serviteur

Sept: Les p飨鳠infirme la volonte et la resolution du coeur. Le desir pour la desobeissance devient fort et le desir pour le repentance devient faible jusqu'au moment que le desir pour le repentance part du coeur completement

Huit: Toutes les p飨鳠sont legs des nations qu'Allah Azzawajall a detruit. La sodomie est un legs de la nation de Lut, la prise de plus que son directement droits et donner ce qui est moins est un legs de la nation de Shu'ayb, la recherche de la grandeur et entrainant la corruption est un legs de la nation de Fir'awn, et l'arrogance et la tyrannie est un legs de la nation de Hud. Ainsi, le desobeissant porte le vetement de quelques nations qui etaient les enemis d'Allah

Neuf: La desobeissance du serviteur resulte en gagnant le mepris de son Seigneur. Al-Hasan al-Basree (rh) a dit: Ils sont devenus meprisable, alors, ils ont desobei [leur Seigneur]. S'ils etaient honorables, il les aurait proteges. Allah, l'Exalte, a dit:

Et celui qui Allah humilie, il n'y a personne qui peux lui donner son honneur. [Hajj 22:18]

Dix: Les mals effets du pecheur touchent ses compagnons et les animaux. Par consequent, ils sont touches par le mal

Onze: Le serviteur continue en p飨頪usqu'ils deviennent facile et deviennent insignifiant et c'est une indication de la destruction. Dans tous les cas que le peche devient insignifiant au serviteur, il devient signifiant a Allah

Ibn Masud (ra) a dit: Vraiment, le croyeur voit ses peches comme une montagne qu'il craigne qu'il va tomber sur lui, et le pecheur voit ses peches comme une mouche qui passe par son nez, donc, il essaie de l'enlever par ondulant sa main.

Douze: La desobeissance herite l'honte. Honneur est dans la culte d'Allah. Abdullah ibn al-Mubarak a dit:

J'avais vu les p飨鳠tuent les coeurs
Et l'honte est heritee par la continuation du p飨銌'abandon de peche donne la vie aux coeurs...

Treize. La desobeissance endommage l'intelligence. L'intelligence est une lumiere et la desobeissance extermine cette lumiere. Quand la lumiere de l'intelligence est exterminee, l'intelligence devient faible et debile.

Quatorze. Quand la desobeissance grandit, le coeur du serviteur devient ferme, ainsi, il devient insouciant. L'Exalte a dit:

Mais, non! La rouille est sur ses coeurs a cause de ses actions.

Quinze. Les p飨鳠resultent en la corruption variable dans le domaine - La corruption de l'eau, de l'air, des plantes, des fruites, et des demeures. L'Exalte a dit:

La corruption est apparue sur la terre et dans la mer ࠣause de ce que les gens ont accompli de leurs propres mains; afin qu'[Allah] leur fasse go?une partie de ce qu'ils ont oeuvr黠peut-괲e reviendront-ils (vers Allah) (30:41).

Seize. La disparition de la reserve, qui est essentielle a la vie du coeur et c'est la base du bien. Sa disparition et la disparition de tous ce qui est bien. C'est authentique de Rasoolullah (sallallahu 'alayhi wa sallam) qu'il a dit: La reserve et le bien [Bukhari et Muslim]. Un poete a dit:

Et, wallahi, il n'y a pas de bien dans la vie ou le monde quand il n'y a pas de la reserve.

Dix-sept. Dans le coeur du serviteur, les p飨鳠infirme et abaisse l'aggrandissment d'Allah, le Puissant.

Dix-huit. Les peches resultent en oubliant du serviteur par Allah. Il l'abandonne et le laisser lui-meme avec son ame et son diable, et c'est sa destruction, de ce qu'il ne peux pas esperer du refuge.

Dix-neuf. Les p飨鳠enlevent le serviteur d'Ihsan et il est empeche d'avantage de ceux qui font des bonnes actions. Quand ihsan remplit le coeur, il l'empeche de la desobeissance.

Vingt. La desobeissance est une raison de la fin des faveurs d'Allah, et la desobeissance fait la revenche d'Allah halal. La benediction ne cesse pas descendre au serviteur sauf a cause du p飨頥t la vengeance n'est pas halal pour lui sauf a cause du p飨鮠Ali a dit: Fitnah n'est jamais descendu sauf a cause du p飨頥t fitnah ne cesse pas sauf apres tawbah. Allah, l'Exalte, a dit:

Tout malheur qui vous atteint est d?e que vos mains ont acquis. Et Il pardonne beaucoup (42:30).

Et, aussi, l'Exalte a dit:

C'est qu'en effet Allah ne modifie pas un bienfait dont Il a gratifi頵n peuple avant que celui-ci change ce qui est en lui-mꭥ. Et Allah est, Audient et Omniscient (8:53).

how absurd is posting an article in french? as absurd as...

...insisting on delivering khutbahs in foreign languages when non-muslims are present.

...letting a person who no one can understand make announcements.

...leaving a third brother out of the conversation by speaking in a language he doesn't understand.

...refusing to learn english.

(if anyone has any corrections to my article, please e-mail me. this is the first time in a while that i've written in french. my grammar might seem rather amateur).

You get your point across so well Hasan. Love you bro

by the way this is the translation

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

Imaam 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 Allaah 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 Allaah). If there was no other punishment for sin other than that it prevents one from obedience to Allaah 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.

FIVE. Disobedience reduces the lifespan and destroys any blessings. Just as righteousness increases the lifespan, sinning reduces it.

SIX. Disobedience sows its own seeds and gives birth to itself until separating from it and coming out of it becomes difficult for the servant.

SEVEN. Sins weaken the hearts will and resolve so that the desire for disobedience becomes strong and the desire to repent becomes weak bit by bit until the desire to repent is removed from the heart completely.

EIGHT. Every type of disobedience is a legacy of a nation from among the nations which Allaah Azzawajall 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'ayb, seeking greatness in the land and causing corruption is a legacy of the People of Pharoah and pride/arrogance and tyranny is a legacy of the People of Hud. So the disobedient one is wearing the gown of some of these nations who were the enemies of Allaah.

NINE. Disobedience is a cause of the servant being held in contempt by his Lord. Al-Hasan al-Basree (rh) said: They became contemptible in (His sight) so they disobeyed Him. If they were honourable (in His sight) He would have protected them. Allah the Exalted said:

And whomsoever Allaah lowers (humiliates) there is none to give honour. [Hajj 22:18]

TEN. The ill-effects of the sinner fall upon those besides him and also the animals as a result of which they are touched by harm.

ELEVEN. The servant continues to commit sins until they become very easy for him and seem insignificant in his heart and this is a sign of destruction. Every time a sin becomes insignificant in the sight of the servant it becomes great in the sight of Allaah.

Ibn Mas'ood (ra) said: Indeed, the believer sees his sins as if he was standing at the foot of a mountain fearing that it will fall upon him and the sinner sees his sins like a fly which passes by his nose so he tries to remove it by waving his hand around. [Bukhaaree]

TWELVE. Disobedience inherits humiliation and lowliness. Honour, all of it, lies in the obedience of Allaah. Abdullaah ibn al-Mubaarak 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

THIRTEEN. 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.

FOURTEEN. 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 (i.e. their actions) [Mutaffifeen 83:14]

FIFTEEN. Sins cause the various types of corruption to occur in the land. Corruption of the waters, the air, the plants, the fruits 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. [Rum 30:41]

SIXTEEN. The disappearance of modesty which 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. It is authentic from the Messenger (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) that he said: Modesty is goodness, all of it [Bukhaaree and Muslim] A Poet said:

And by Allaah, there is no good in life Or in the world when modesty goes

SEVENTEEN. Sins weaken and reduce themagnification of Allaah, the Mighty in the heart ofthe servant

EIGHTEEN. Sins are the cause of Allaah forgetting His servant, abandoning him and leaving him to fend for himself with his soul and his shaytaan and in this is the destruction from which no deliverance can be hoped for.

NINETEEN. Sins remove the servant from the realm of Ihsaan (doing good) and he is prevented from (obtaining) the reward of those who do good. When Ihsaan fills the heart it prevents it from disobedience.

TWENTY. Disobedience causes the favours (of Allaah) to cease and make His revenge lawful. No blessing ceases to reach a servant except due to a sin and no retribution is made lawful upon him except due to a sin. Alee (ra) said: No trial has descended except due to a sin and it (the trial) is not repelled except by repentance. Allaah the Exalted said:

Whatever misfortune afflicts you then it is due to what your hands have earned and (yet) He pardons many [Shura 42:30]

And the Exalted also said:

That is because never will Allaah change the favour He has bestowed on a people until they change what is with themselves [Anfaal 8:53]

I can understand and respect someone not wanting to learn English, however, as people living in America it doesn't make much sense not to learn/speak it. If the day comes when Spanish is more widely spoken, perhaps Muslim Americans should learn spanish.

On the other hand its important for Muslims to also learn Arabic (in order to facilitate further intellectual growth, understanding, etc.).

Either way - creative way to make a point.
