Yahya related to me from Malik from Yahya ibn Said that he had heard that Abdullah ibn Abbas said, "Stealing from the spoils does not appear in a people but that terror is cast into their hearts. Fornication does not spread in a people but that there is much death among them. A people do not lessen the measure and weight but that provision is cut off from them. A people do not judge without right but that blood spreads among them. A people do not betray the pledge but that Allah gives their enemies power over them."
وَحَدَّثَنِي عَنْ مَالِكٍ، عَنْ يَحْيَى بْنِ سَعِيدٍ، أَنَّهُ بَلَغَهُ عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ عَبَّاسٍ، أَنَّهُ قَالَ مَا ظَهَرَ الْغُلُولُ فِي قَوْمٍ قَطُّ إِلاَّ أُلْقِيَ فِي قُلُوبِهِمُ الرُّعْبُ وَلاَ فَشَا الزِّنَا فِي قَوْمٍ قَطُّ إِلاَّ كَثُرَ فِيهِمُ الْمَوْتُ وَلاَ نَقَصَ قَوْمٌ الْمِكْيَالَ وَالْمِيزَانَ إِلاَّ قُطِعَ عَنْهُمُ الرِّزْقُ وَلاَ حَكَمَ قَوْمٌ بِغَيْرِ الْحَقِّ إِلاَّ فَشَا فِيهِمُ الدَّمُ وَلاَ خَتَرَ قَوْمٌ بِالْعَهْدِ إِلاَّ سَلَّطَ اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِمُ الْعَدُوَّ ‏.‏
