عن أبي هريرة -رضي الله عنه- مرفوعًا: «إِنَّ الله -تَعَالى- يَغَارُ، وغَيرَةُ الله -تَعَالَى-، أَنْ يَأْتِيَ المَرء ما حرَّم الله عليه».
[صحيح.] - [متفق عليه.]
المزيــد ...

Abu Hurayrah, may Allah be pleased with him, reported that the Prophet, may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him, said: "Verily, Allah, The Almighty, gets jealous. The jealousy of Allah, The Almighty, is when a person commits what Allah has made unlawful for him."

Explanation

This Hadith shows that Allah gets jealous when it comes to His prohibitions. He hates the act of transgressing the limits set by Him, like in the case of committing adultery, which is a most contemptible sin. Allah has made adultery, and all the means that lead to it, unlawful for His slaves. If one commits adultery, the jealousy of Allah is stronger and graver than His jealousy when lesser prohibitions are violated. The jealousy of Allah becomes even graver when sodomy is practiced, and that is why Allah, The Almighty, has considered it more obscene than adultery. Likewise are theft and consuming alcohol and all other prohibitions, they lead to the jealousy of Allah when committed. However, the degree of jealousy varies according to the crime committed and the consequent harms.
