It was narrated that “Abdullah bin “Umar said:
“The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) turned to us and said: “O Muhajirun, there are five things with which you will be tested, and I seek refuge with Allah lest you live to see them:
Immorality never appears among a people to such an extent that they commit it openly, but plagues and diseases that were never known among the predecessors will spread among them.
They do not cheat in weights and measures but they will be stricken with famine, severe calamity and the oppression of their rulers. They do not withhold the Zakah of their wealth, but rain will be withheld from the sky, and were it not for the animals, no rain would fall on them.
They do not break their covenant with Allah and His Messenger, but Allah will enable their enemies to overpower them and take some of what is in their hands. Unless their leaders rule according to the Book of Allah and seek all good from that which Allah has revealed, Allah will cause them to fight one another.'”

Sunan Ibn Majah , Book 36, Hadith 94
1- Due to immodesty and impudence many dangerous diseases like syphilis and
gonorrhea have emerged, and thereafter AIDS and hepatitis came to existence. The more the society is free from immodesty, the less is the ratio of these diseases.
2- . Cheating in weighting or measuring results from greediness. It usurps the rights of others, so its punishment also inflicts them in the form of financial loss and famine.
3- Zakah brings blessings to the wealth. If those who pay Zakah decrease in any society then their livelihood, as punishment for them, is stopped.
4- Allah has His mercy upon those who have compassion for others. Similarly, the one who causes harm to others. abstains from helping
them or exploits them does not deserve His mercy.
5 Covenant of Allah and his Prophet pbuh means protecting the lawful rights of
non-Muslims who live under an Islamic govemment. Moreover, the one who accepts Islam promises to worship Allah and to obey the Prophet Breaking this promise also entitles people to the punishment of Allah
6- To protect the national health from many diseases, all the means of obscenity should be eradicated (for example; indecent literature, musical instruments, dance, films, mixing of men and women, lewd program on radio, television etc.)
It was narrated from Abu Malik Ash’ari that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said:”People among my nation will drink wine, calling it by another name, and musical instruments will be played for them and singing girls (will sing for them). Allah will cause the earth to swallow them up, and will turn them into monkeys and pigs.”Grade Hasan (Darussalam)

1- Every intoxicant regardless of its name is forbidden.

3. Tricks do not make an unlawful matter a lawful one, rather the sin becomes more severe.
4. Playing musical instruments and listening to them is forbidden.
