Our Lord Forbade Us From Corrupting The Earth After It Was Set In Order Through His Messengers
In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy
Allaah [The Most High] said that Shu’aib [alayhis-salaam] said to his people:
[وَلَا تُفۡسِدُواْ فِى ٱلۡأَرۡضِ بَعۡدَ إِصۡلَـٰحِهَاۚ – And do not mischief on the earth after it has been set in order] – Meaning: Do not commit acts of disobedience [in the earth] after Allaah has already set it in order through His command that justice be established and by sending Messengers [i.e. Messengers who came to convey Tawheed and all virtuous deeds; forbid Shirk and all evil deed].
