One harm of sin is that the sinner will be deprived of Deen-knowledge because Deen (knowlegde) is Noor (Light),and due to sinning,this Noor is extinguished.Another harm of sin is that one's sustenance is decreased in this world.Another harm is that the sinner experiences a detachment and terror from Allah Ta'ala.

Due to sinning,he also feels a detachment and terror from people,especially the Pious.When sitting in the company of the Pious,their talks do not have an effect on his heart.A sinner experiences difficulty in most of his duties.Darkness develops in his heart.If he ponders over this darkness,his mind becomes perturbed.

Owing to this,one becomes involved in Bidah (innovations-deviation from the right path and ignorance).The body and heart becomes weak.The weakness of the heart is apparent due to the fact that the courage and ability to do good gradually decreases and finally vanishes.Thus he becomes deprived of worshiping Allah Ta'ala.

Today one good deed is left out,tomorrow another and the day after yet another is left out until all good deeds are left out.Due to sinning ones lifespan is shorten and Barakah (Blessings) is lost.A sin becomes a means of commiting another and another until the sinner becomes submerged in sin.The intention to repent weakens until eventually the sinner has no ability to repent at all.

Death suddenly overtakes the sinner in this condition,because the remembrance of death is absent. After a while the sinner tends to ignore the evils related to sinning.Sinning is not regarded as being evil anymore nor does he care of his perpetuating a wrong.But in fact,these people boastfully talks about their sins.Such a person is very far from Allah Ta'ala's forgiveness. Every sin is a legacy or inheritance of some enemy of Allah Ta'ala. Thus this person becomes cursed like them.

“…why then did they not believe with humility? But their hearts became hardened, and Satan made fair seeming to them that which they used to do.” (Quran 6:43)

A sinner becomes wretched and disliked by Allah Ta'ala.When Allah Ta'ala dislikes a person,the entire creation loses respect for that person.As the misfortune of sinning reaches the sinner,in the same way it reaches the other creation and they all curse him in turn.Sinning causes harm and defect to one's intellect,because the intellect is of Noor,therefore,due to sins and dirt it is weakened.In fact,sinning itself is a sign of a person's deficiency.

One great misfortune is that a sinner falls in the category of people cursed by Rasulullah (SAW).He also becomes deprived of the Duaa's (Suplications) of the Malaa'ikah (Angels) Due to the evil of sin,various disasters such as floods,hurricanes,decrease in fresh produce,etc.

Shame and modesty becomes a rarity in a sinner's life and when those no longer are evident,then he does whatever he pleases and no reliability is left in that person.Sinning causes the greatness of Allah Ta'ala to leave the heart.When Allah Ta'ala's greatness leaves his heart he becomes degraded.In fact,if the greatness of Allah Ta'ala was in his heart he would never have dared sin. The Prophet said:

“Shame and bashfulness is from the perfection of faith.” (Saheeh Al-Bukhari).

“If you have no shame, then do as you please.” (Saheeh Al-Bukhari).

One becomes deprived of the blessings and calamities befall him.Titles of praise and dignity are denied instead evil titles are given to sinners.When someone does good,then titles such as Believer,Barr (Pious),Mitee (Follower),Wali (Friend of Allah) etc,are given to that person.When one does evil his titles are Evil Doer,Sinner...etc.

That person who sins,is often overpowered by Shaytaan,because submission and devotion to Allah Ta'ala is a fort of Allah Ta'ala protected against His enemies.Due to sinning one becomes deprived of peace of mind and contentment of heart.He is always afflicted by some worry or difficulty.

The person is always worried that his sin should not be exposed so that people will lose respect for him or that someone may take revenge against him.By continuously sinning it (the sin) becomes entrenched in the heart,and thus causes one to die without Imaan.Whatever actions are predominant in a person's life.That is what he will be doing at the time of Death!

Quran 2:74. Thenceforth were your hearts hardened: They became like a rock and even worse in hardness. For among rocks there are some from which rivers gush forth; others there are which when split asunder send forth water; and others which sink for fear of Allah. And Allah is not unmindful of what ye do.

Quran 2:75. Can ye (o ye men of Faith) entertain the hope that they will believe in you?- Seeing that a party of them heard the Word of Allah, and perverted it knowingly after they understood it.
