Ibn Abbas on Sins: Prevalence of sins, prevalence of divine afflictions

Yahya ibn Sa’id reported: Ibn Abbas, may Allah be pleased with him, said, “Adultery does not become prevalent among people but that there will be much death among them. People do not defraud in weights and measures but that their provision will be cut off. People do not judge by other than the truth but that bloodshed will be prevalent among them. People do not betray their covenants but that Allah will give their enemies power over them.”

عَنْ يَحْيَى بْنِ سَعِيدٍ عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ عَبَّاسٍ رضي الله عنه قَالَ لَا فَشَا الزِّنَا فِي قَوْمٍ قَطُّ إِلَّا كَثُرَ فِيهِمْ الْمَوْتُ وَلَا نَقَصَ قَوْمٌ الْمِكْيَالَ وَالْمِيزَانَ إِلَّا قُطِعَ عَنْهُمْ الرِّزْقُ وَلَا حَكَمَ قَوْمٌ بِغَيْرِ الْحَقِّ إِلَّا فَشَا فِيهِمْ الدَّمُ وَلَا خَتَرَ قَوْمٌ بِالْعَهْدِ إِلَّا سَلَّطَ اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِمْ الْعَدُوَّ
