Riyad as-Salihin (The Meadows of the Righteous)

by Imam Nawawi

368. Chapter: The warning not to commit what Allah and His Messenger have prohibited

Allah Almighty says, "Those who oppose his command should beware of a testing trial coming to them or a painful punishment striking them," (W24:61; H24:63) and the Almighty says, "Allah advises you to beware of Him." (3:30) Allah Almighty says, "Your Lord's Assault is very fierce indeed," (85:12) and the Almighty says, "Such is the seizing of your Lord when He seizes the cities which do wrong. His seizing is painful, violent."(11:102)

1806. Abu Hurayra reported that the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, "Allah Almighty is jealous, and the jealousy of Allah expresses itself in respect of a man coming to something Allah has forbidden him." [Agreed upon]
