Allaah, ﷻ has laid down obligations which we are not permitted to ignore, and has set limits which we are not permitted to transgress, and has set out prohibitions which we are not allowed to violate. The Prophet of Allaah, ﷺ said: “Whatever Allaah has permitted in His Book is allowed, and whatever He has prohibited is forbidden; whatever He has remained silent about is a concession, so accept the concession of Allaah, for Allaah is never forgetful.” Then he, ﷺ recited the verse: {. . . and your Lord is never forgetful} [Qur’aan 19:64]
(Reported by Al-Haakim, 2/375; classed as Hasan by al-Albaani in Ghaayat al-Maraam, p. 14)

The things which have been prohibited are the boundaries or limits set by Allaah ﷻ:
{…And whosoever transgresses the set limits of Allaah, then indeed he has wronged himself…}
[Qur’aan 65:1]

Allaah ﷻ has issued a warning to the one who transgresses His set limits and violates His prohibitions, as He Says: {And whosoever disobeys Allaah and His Messenger, and transgresses His limits, He will cast him into the Fire, to abide therein; and he shall have a disgraceful torment.} [Qur’aan 4:14]

Avoiding that which has been forbidden is a duty, because the Prophet of Allaah, ﷺ said: “Whatever you have been prohibited to do, avoid it, and whatever you have been commanded to do, do as much of it as you can.”
(Reported by Muslim, Kitaabul al-fadaa’il, Hadeeth no. 130, Abdul-Baaqi edition)

It is well-known that some of those who follow their desires, who are weak at heart and have little knowledge, become irritated when they hear lists of prohibitions. They grumble and mutter: “Everything is Haraam, you haven’t left us anything that is not forbidden! You make our lives boring and miserable. You don’t talk about anything but what is Haraam, but religion is supposed to easy, not strict, and Allaah is Forgiving and Merciful.”
In response to such remarks, we say: Allaah, ﷻ rules as He wills and there is none to put back His judgment. He is All-Wise and Aware, and He allows whatever He wills and forbids whatever He wills, may He be glorified. One of the basic principles of our being His slaves is that we should accept whatever He decrees and submit fully to it. His rulings stem from His knowledge, wisdom and justice, and are not a matter of frivolity or foolish whims, as He Says: {And the Word of your Lord has been fulfilled in truth and in justice. None can change His words. And He is the All-Hearer, the All-Knower.} [Qur’aan 6:115]
