“The earth trembles, the heavens have darkened, evil has appeared on land and sea because of the injustice of the wicked, evil doers.
Blessings have disappeared, good deeds are less, and the beasts have become powerless, life has become corrupted because of the wickedness of the wrong-doers.
The morning light and the night’s darkness shed tears, because of the awful deeds that are committed.
Honourable writers among the Angels, and others from among them, have complained to their Lord because of the prevalence of misdeeds and the supremacy of atrocities.
By Allaah! This is a warning of approaching torment, and forthcoming afflictions,
so you have no resort except sincere repentance as long as repentance is still available.
Do not wait until there is no escape in which Allaah says:
“And those who do wrong will come to know by what overturning they will be overturned”
– Ibnul-Qayyim (rahimahullaah) [al-Fawaa’id (p. 75)]
