This paper intends to describe instances of the sin against mankind and its impact on the life according to the Quran.

Sin against mankind in Quran

One of the examples of sin against mankind is maintaining the dignity of individuals and cause that people becomes pessimistic. God in Hojarat Sura mentioned to some attributes as a preface. The eleventh verse of Sura of Hojarat says:” O you who believe! Avoid most of suspicion, for surely suspicion in some cases is a sin, and do not spy nor let some of you backbite others. Does one of you like to eat the flesh of his dead brother? But you abhor it; and be careful of (your duty to) Allah, surely Allah is Oft-returning (to mercy), Merciful.”

Imam Baqir (peace be upon him) is also expressed the concept of this verse in other words, ”Swear to God the dignity of a believer is greater than the dignity of Kabba”. (Bihar al-Anwar, vol. 1, p. 150)

In this verse, three matters are considered:

First, avoid suspicion toward believers because it is not acceptable in Islam.

Second: focus on people’s work, it is religiously forbidden, but if it is about conspiracy against the Islamic state and such a thing, the investigation will be necessary.

Third: backbite and Imam Kazim (AS) says:” When others do not know about the man’s fault, you spread it among people when he is absent”. (Majma al-Bayan, vol. 9, p. 137)

Use of short weights

Use of short weights is another kind of sin against mankind. ”Woe to the defrauders, who, when they take the measure (of their dues) from men take it fully, But when they measure out to others or weigh out for them, they are deficient”. (Al-Muṭaffifīn, Verse 1-3) It is also remarkable that the above verses, though only pay attention to the amount, but without doubt the sense of the verse is broad and it consists of any use of short weights, although a small amount. It is possible by using the revocation of the property; it will consist of Use of short weights.

For instance if workers and employees have stealing time, they will be considered as al-Muṭaffifīn or those who deal in fraud and this verse blame them hardly.

Squander

Another example of sins against mankind is squander, it means exceeds the amount and moderation and the Prophet (PBUH) in interpretation of the verse ” And they who when they spend, are neither extravagant nor parsimonious, and (keep) between these the just mean” says: everyone who does not (keep) between these the just mean, spend wastefully. (Al-Hayat, vol. 4, p. 310) Imam Ali (PBUH) said: “Spending more than enough (normal amount to cover the needs) is squander wastefully.” (Mustadrakat Alvsayl, vol. 2, p. 645). A person asked Imam Sadiq (AS) about the concept of holy verse” And give to the near of kin his due and (to) the needy and the wayfarer, and do not squander wastefully”, Imam Sadiq replied: Everyone who does not spend in the way of God is squander, and a person who spend in a good way is thrifty. A person, who spends all his possessions and remain without anything, called him squander. The man asked even in solvent consumption? Imam Sadiq(AS) said: Yes. (Al-Hayat, vol. 4, p. 310)

In this verse, three matters are considered: First, avoid suspicion toward believers because it is not acceptable in Islam. Second: focus on people’s work, it is religiously forbidden, but if it is about conspiracy against the Islamic state and such a thing, the investigation will be necessary. Third: backbite and Imam Kazim (AS) says: When others do not know about the man’s fault, you spread it among people when he is absent.

Examples of sin against mankind in families

Sin against mankind in addition to the items which listed above have various forms in families, Tell lies or humiliating others or blacken someone’s name or even nepotism are other kinds of sins against mankind. Mixing vegetables with water to increase its prices is another kind of sin against mankind. When someone does not pay one fifth of its own, or if parents discriminate between children will be considered as sins against mankind.

Lack of attention to all these issues and many other issues lead to the disintegration of the family.
