Rebellion Against Allaah’s Command, Evil Plotting and Breaking Pledges
In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy
It used to be said that whoever perpetrates these three acts will be haunted by them:
 Rebellion against Allaah’s commandments. Allaah (The Most High) said:
يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ إِنَّمَا بَغْيُكُمْ عَلَىٰ أَنْفُسِكُمْ
O mankind! Your rebellion (disobedience to Allah) is only against your ownselves.
[Soorah Yoonus: Ayah: 23]
 Evil plotting. Allaah (The Most High) said:
وَلَا يَحِيقُ الْمَكْرُ السَّيِّئُ إِلَّا بِأَهْلِهِ
But the evil plot encompasses only him who makes it.
[Soorah Faatir: Ayah: 43]
 Breaking pledges. Allaah (The Most High) said:
فَمَنْ نَكَثَ فَإِنَّمَا يَنْكُثُ عَلَىٰ نَفْسِهِ
Then whosoever breaks his pledge only breaks it to his own harm.
[Soorah Al-Fath: Ayah: 10]
