  • What does it mean when people are "cursed" by Allah?

    Hi
    Been trying to find out what Allah actually means when he says certain people are cursed ( eg Jews , eyebrow pluckers , wig makers, riba users etc).

    Not had too much success though. Will a "cursed" person go to hell always? Will they have a difficult life here on earth first? What does the word actually mean?

    Any advice and info much appreciated.

      Aoudhubillahi minas shaithan nirrajeem
      :start:
      :salams:
      Lo! Those who hide the proofs and the guidance which We revealed, after We had made it clear to mankind in the Scripture: such are accursed of Allah and accursed of those who have the power to curse. 2:159

      A curse is made to follow them in the world and on the Day of Resurrection. Hapless is the gift (that will be) given (them). 11:99

      And We made a curse to follow them in this world, and on the Day of Resurrection they will be among the hateful. 28:42

      And when there cometh unto them a scripture from Allah, confirming that in their possession - though before that they were asking for a signal triumph over those who disbelieved - and when there cometh unto them that which they know (to be the truth) they disbelieve therein. The curse of Allah is on disbelievers. 2:89

      And those who break the covenant of Allah after ratifying it, and sever that which Allah hath commanded should be joined, and make mischief in the earth: theirs is the curse and theirs the ill abode. 13:25

      Whoso slayeth a believer of set purpose, his reward is hell for ever. Allah is wroth against him and He hath cursed him and prepared for him an awful doom. 4:93

      Who doeth greater wrong than he who inventeth a lie concerning Allah? Such will be brought before their Lord, and the witnesses will say: These are they who lied concerning their Lord. Now the curse of Allah is upon wrong-doers, 11:18

      And they say: Our hearts are hardened. Nay, but Allah hath cursed them for their unbelief. Little is that which they believe. 2:88

      Allah promiseth the hypocrites, both men and women, and the disbelievers fire of hell for their abode. It will suffice them. Allah curseth them, and theirs is lasting torment. 9:68

      And may punish the hypocritical men and the hypocritical women, and the idolatrous men and the idolatrous women, who think an evil thought concerning Allah. For them is the evil turn of fortune, and Allah is wroth against them and hath cursed them, and hath made ready for them hell, a hapless journey's end. 48:6

      Shall I tell thee of a worse (case) than theirs for retribution with Allah? (Worse is the case of him) whom Allah hath cursed, him on whom His wrath hath fallen and of whose sort Allah hath turned some to apes and swine, and who serveth idols. Such are in worse plight and further astray from the plain road. 5:60

      O you who believe! Do your duty to Allah and fear Him. Seek the means of approach to Him, and strive hard in His Cause as much as you can. So that you may be successful. (Al-Maeda, Chapter 5, Verse 35)
      Verily, man was created very impatient; irritable when evil touches him; and stingy when good touches him. Except those who are devoted to Salah. (70:19-22).

          The explanation of the term i heard was that in general every human being and creature receives certain mercy and blessings from Allah by default of their creation.

          But if something is cursed by Allah (swt) then it is generally deprived of some portion of His mercy, rehmah, favor or blessing and could be at serious loss with regards to the Akhirah (afterlife).

          So the Curse (La'nah) of Allah is actually being deprived from Allah's rehmah and blessing. It may be in the dunya (peace, wealth, health, tranqulity) or in the Akhirah (deprived of Jannah, deprived of their good deeds, deprived of eternal peace etc)

          Which is why we should think seriously before we say "lanath" on someone.
          Again and again will those who disbelieve, wish that they had bowed (to Allah's will) in Islam. (Koran 15:02)

            The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: Cleanliness is half of faith

            and al-Hamdu Lillah (all praise and gratitude is for Allah alone) fills the scale, and Subhan Allah (Glory be to Allah)

            and al-Hamdu Lillah fill up what is between the heavens and the earth, and prayer is a light,

            and charity is proof (of one's faith)

            and endurance is a brightness and the Holy Qur'an is a proof on your behalf or against you.

            All men go out early in the morning and sell themselves, thereby setting themselves free or destroying themselves.

                  Re: What does it mean when people are "cursed" by Allah?

                  The curse of Allah causes disgrace here and hereinafter


                  The Qur'anic word, 'la'nah' (translated as 'curse' in absence of a more exact equivalent) means being far removed from the mercy of Allah, extremely debased and disgraced. Anyone under 'la'nah' from Allah cannot be close to Allah. For such accursed ones admonitions are very stern. The Holy Qur'an says:

                  (The accursed, wherever they be, are to be caught and killed massacre-like.) (33:61)

                  This is their disgrace in the present life - the disgrace in the Akhirah will be far too grim to contemplate.

                  Who deserves the 'la'nah' of Allah?

                  The words of the Holy Qur'an in verse 52:

                  state that anyone under the curse of Allah has no helper to help him in that predicament. The point to ponder is: Who are these people who become deserving of this 'la'nah' from Allah? According to a hadith, the Holy Prophet :saw: has cursed the giver of interest, the receiver and the consumer of interest, and its writer and the one who bears witness to it, the whole lot of them, all of them equally involved in the sin. (Narrated by Muslim as in Mishkat)

                  There is another hadith in which he :saw: said: (Cursed is he who does what the people of Lut used to do). Narrated by Razin and appearing in Mishkat, the reference is to the male homosexual. Then, he said: 'Allah sends his curse on the thief who would not stop from stealing even very small things like eggs and ropes, and in retribution to which, his hand is cut off.' (Mishkat) In another hadith, he said:

                  "Allah curses the eater of interest, and its feeder, and the woman who tattooes another woman and the woman who tattooes herself, and the picture-maker." (Bukhari, from Mishkat)

                  In yet another hadith, he has said: 'Allah sends His curse on liquor, its consumer and its server, its seller and purchaser, its squeezers, its handlers, transporters and orderers, on all of them.' (Abu Dawud, ibn Majah,from Mishkat)

                  In still another hadith, the Holy Prophet :saw: has said: 'There are six types of people I have cursed and Allah Almighty has also cursed them - and every prophet is blessed with the acceptance of his prayers - those six are:

                  (1) One who commits excess in the matter of Allah's Book;
                  (2) and one who rises to power by force and terror, then honours a person disgraced by Allah and brings disgrace on a person honoured by Allah;
                  (3) the denier of destiny determined by Allah;
                  (4) one who takes as lawful what has been made unlawful by Allah;
                  (5) the person in my progency who rules what has been forbidden as lawful;
                  (6) and the one who gives up my way {sunnah).' (Baihaql in Al-Mudkhal from Mishkat)

                  In another hadith, he said: 'Allah curses the ogler and the ogled at.' It means that the curse of Allah falls on anyone who looks at someone in an evil way, someone who is a non-Mahram, that is, someone outside the count of those in the family he is permitted to see because marriage with them is forbidden for ever. This is why such a nazir, the onlooker of the other, comes under the curse of Allah. As for the manzur ilaihi, the one who is looked at lustfully, the same curse will apply subject to his or her having deliberately and invitingly caused such a look to be cast.

                  Sayyidna Abu Hurairah رضي الله عنه narrates:

                  "The Holy Prophet :saw: has cursed the man who dresses like a woman and the woman who dresses like a man. (Mishkat)

                  The following report from Abu Dawud appears in Mishkat:

                  "Someone told Sayyidah 'A'ishah (Radhiallaahu Anha) about a woman who wore (men's) shoes. Sayyidah 'A'ishah said: 'The Messenger of Allah :saw: has cursed the woman who takes to masculine ways.'

                  A narration from Sayyidna Ibn Abbas رضي الله عنه reports

                  "The Holy Prophet :saw: has cursed the effeminate from among men (who, in dress and looks, emulate women-like transvestites) and he has cursed the masculinized from among women (who, in dress, looks and ways, act man-like). And he said: 'Expel them out of you homes.' " (Bukhari, from Mishkat)

                  Also from al-Bukhari comes the report that Sayyidna 'Abdullah ibn Mas'ud رضي الله عنه said:

                  "The curse of Allah be on the tattooers and the tattooed, on the pickers of eye-brows and the cleavers of teeth as aids to beauty - they are the makers of alteration in the creation of Allah."

                    Re: What does it mean when people are "cursed" by Allah?

                    Rules about La'nah
                    Rulings:


                    1. Unless it is known about a particular person that he has died in a state of kufr (disbelief), invoking La'nah on him is not permissible even though he may be a sinful person. Based on this principle, Allamah Ibn 'Abidin has advised against cursing Yazid. But, should it be on a particular kafir whose death in a state of disbelief is certain, for instance, Abu Jahl and Abu Lahab, then, it is permissible. (Shaml, v.2, p.836)

                    2. Cursing without naming anyone is permissible, for example, saying: 'God's curse upon liars (or tyrants)!'

                    3. Literally, La'nah means being far removed from the mercy of Allah. In the terminology of the Shari'ah, when applied to disbelievers, it refers to their being far far off from the mercy of Allah; and when it is applied to Muslims, it refers to their having fallen down the level of the righteous (reported by shami from ai-Quhistani, v.2, p.836).

                    Therefore, praying that the good deeds of a Muslim may decrease is also not permissible.

                      Salaam.

                      Forgive my ignorance brothers, but if a Muslim is cursed by Allah(swt), that therefore means he will abide in hell forever, right?

                      However, personally I have always been taught and thought that anyone that is a Muslim will eventually be admitted to Jannah?

                      Please could someone clarify this for me?

                        After being in the hell-fire for, Allah knows how long,yes they will eventually go to Jannah.

                        However,imagine the pain,as the hell fire is 70 times hotter than our normal fire (i think)
                        Also,you won't just get put into fire,you will get several punishments depending on your sins,all starting from the grave.

                        May Allah sbw forgive us all.

                            What about asking Allah to destroy someone?

                            Such as statements like 'May Allah destroy him' or 'May Allah annihalate them'.

                            Are such statements allowed?

                              ''the act of cursing becomes effective not only by using the word, 'curse' but all synonyms used are subject to the same ruling. The word 'La'nah' (curse) means: 'to remove away from the mercy of Allah Almighty'. Therefore, all damnatory swearing and cursing, whatever the shade, circumstance or language, falls under the purview of "la'nah" or 'curse'.''
