In the name of Allah, the Most-Merciful, the All-Compassionate
“May the Peace and Blessings of Allah be Upon You”
Praise be to Allaah, we seek His help and His forgiveness. We seek refuge with Allaah from the evil of our own souls and from our bad deeds. Whomsoever Allaah guides will never be led astray, and whomsoever Allaah leaves astray, no one can guide. I bear witness that there is no god but Allaah, and I bear witness that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger.
Bismillah Walhamdulillah Was Salaatu Was Salaam ‘ala Rasulillah

O YOU WHO SPREADS CORRUPTION IN THE LAND! By Asma bint Shameem
Allaah says to the people:
“Do not forget your share in this world. Do good, as Allah has been good to you, and do not corrupt in the land, Allah does not love those who corrupt.”(Surah al-Qasas: 77)
Yet, you spread corruption on Earth every where you go.
You spread corruption by lying , slandering, sowing the seed of dissension between people.
You are ready to believe the worst about your brother, without verifying it. You twist innocent actions and words, just to make your brother look bad.
You do all that and more….much more.
And, yet, you deny it. You think it is not you.
You think it is others who are spreading corruption….
but in fact, it is YOU.
“And when it is said to them: Make not mischief on the earth,
they say: We are only peacemakers.
Verily, they are the ones who make mischief, but they perceive not”
SO WHAT EXACTLY IS CORRUPTION ??
It is corruption if you readily believe everything you hear!
“O you who have believed! If there comes to you a disobedient one with information, INVESTIGATE, lest you harm a people out of ignorance and become, over what you havedone, regretful.” (Al-Hujuraat: 6).
It is corruption if you falsely accuse a Muslim without proof !
Abu Dharr said: “I heard the Messenger of Allaah (pbuh) say: No man accuses another of an immoral deed or kufr, but it will come back on him, if the person he accuses is not as he says he is.’” (Bukhari).
It is corruption if you distort the truth !
In a Sahih Hadith the Prophet (pbuh) said: “A man may utter a word without his being on a clear ground regarding it (i.e., without considering its being truthful or not or its being good or evil) which causes him to slip down into the Fire (in a depth) greater than the distance between east and west.”
It is corruption if you gossip and spread rumors !
“Woe to every slanderer and backbiter.” (Surah al-Humazah:1)
“And obey not everyone who swears much, and is considered worthless. A slanderer going about with calumnies.” (Al-Qalam: 10-11)
The Prophet (pbuh) said: “Whoever believes in Allaah and the Last Day, let him say something good or else remain silent.” (Bukhaari, Muslim)
It is corruption if you spread enmity between Muslims !
Shall I not inform you of the wickedest among you?
His companions said, Yes, O Messenger of Allaah!
He said, They are those who go about gossiping and causing enmity among those who have love for each other.
It is corruption if you insinuate Racism, WHEN THERE IS NONE !
“As for those who break the covenant of Allah after accepting it, who cut what He has commanded to be united and worked corruption in the land, a curse shall be laid on them, and they shall have an evil abode.” (Surah ar-Rad: 25)
“And cause not corruption upon the earth after its reformation. And invoke Him in fear and aspiration. Indeed, the mercy of Allaah is near to the doers of good.”
It is corruption when you backbite !
“… neither backbite one another. Would one of you like to eat the flesh of his dead brother? You would hate it. And fear Allaah. Verily, Allaah is the One Who accepts repentance, Most Merciful.” [al-Hujuraat :12]
It is corruption when you harbor envy in your heart !
“Iman and hasad (envy) do not gather together in the heart of a slave [of Allah].”
It is corruption when you dont stand up for the truth and SUPPORT falsehood !
“(They are) swaying between this and that, belonging neither to these nor to those; and he whom Allaah sends astray, you will not find for him a way (to Islam)”
