Dangers of committing sins

SHAFAQNA – It is narrated from the Prophet of Islam (PBUH) who said: Avoid getting intoxicated by (committing) sins, because sins like wine and perhaps more than that cause drunkenness. Allah (SWT) said: They are deaf, dumb and blind, so they will not return (from disbelief to belief) [1]. In this regard, Imam Ali (AS) said: I am surprised at those people who avoid some food, because they are worried in case their health will be damaged, how come they do not avoid sins which will throw them into the fire [2]? In another narration, Imam Ali (AS) said: Make an effort, if you do not practice good deeds, (at least) do not commit sins, because the one who builds a building and does not destroy it, it will remain raised even if for short period; but the one who builds (a building), and (then) destroys it, his building will not remain raised [3].
