Our Lord, Al-Qaadir informs us in many places in the Qur’aan that the reason for the destruction of the nations of old was due to their excessive sinning and transgression.
Allah (Subhaanahu wa Ta’aala) says,
“And many a township have We destroyed while it was given to wrong-doing, so that it lies in ruins (up to this day), and (many) a deserted well and lofty castles!” [Soorah Hajj: 45]
“And how many a town (population) have We destroyed, which were thankless for its means of livelihood (disobeyed Allah, and His Messengers, by doing evil deeds and crimes)! And those are their dwellings, which have not been inhabited after them except a little. And verily! We have been the inheritors. And never will your Lord destroy the towns (populations) until He sends to their mother town a Messenger reciting to them Our Verses. And never would We destroy the towns unless the people thereof are dhaalimun (polytheists, wrong-doers, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah, oppressors and tyrants). [Soorah Qasas: 58-59]
Has not the story of the Ark of Noah reached you? Do you know the reason for the wrath of Allah, Who caused the earth to be drowned until the water became higher than the mountains in what is renowned as The Great Flood during the time of Noah? What was the reason Allah destroyed powerful nations such as 'Ad and Thamud? What was the reason Allah destroyed the land of Sodom and turned it upside down, so that it is known today as The Dead Sea and remains a sign for those who fear a painful torment? Do you know which sin the people of all these aforementioned nations committed?
The answer is polytheism, directing worship to other than The Creator of the heavens and the earth, by calling on other than Allah, relying on other than Allah, praying to other than Allah, sacrificing for other than Allah, revering other than Allah, hoping in other than Allah, seeking blessings from other than Allah, taking oaths by other than Allah, bowing to other than Allah.
So, the major cause of corruption and problems upon the earth is polytheism, directing worship to other than Allah, and that which leads to it. [Solution to Calamities, “Struggling” Economy, Global Warming: Enter Islaam, Leave Off Polytheism from Maktabah-AlFawaaid.Blogspot]
Shaykh Muhammad al-Qahiri (hafidhahullah) will expound on this critical matter of the grave effects that sins have on the community, according to the Book and the Sunnah upon the understanding of our Pious Predecessors.
We ask Allah, Ar-Raheem for guidance, piety, chastity and self-sufficiency.
