Abstract

It is indisputable that the hallmark of a good society is its inhabitants' attitude and behavior, which includes moderation and balance, human compassion, respect for human rights, and, especially, protected action of life and property, and dignity. Creating a righteous society based on established moral principles is a rational requirement. Because the economy, society, law, and culture depend on fulfilling rights and duties, it cannot be the center of backwardness, bankruptcy, moral diseases, deceit, lies, fraud, theft, indecency, and obscenity. Virtue, weakness, virtue, goodness, decency, virtue, fulfillment of promises, and respect for economic, moral, and legal standards are required. It is also a fact that unrest, corruption, and anxiety push the society towards destruction. In case of riots, social, economic, and political peace is disrupted. In an atmosphere of chaos, the development of science and art stops, and the environment could be more conducive to industrial development. Higher values ​​cannot develop, and every member of society becomes a victim of constant fear. It is also a fact that if people live in fear and anxiety for a long time, their abilities are destroyed, they become psychotic, and the wheel of industrial development, including science and arts, is jammed. Islam is an enlightened and natural religion that seeks progress in science, arts, society, and economy and never allows stagnancy, stagnation, and anxiety in the development of human life and higher values. Therefore, Islam has given an effective and positive plan of action for the exploitation, prevention, and elimination of fitnah and mischief. Islam does not like mischief and sedition and does not allow any action or practice that leads to mischief. While the Holy Quran condemns fitnah and mischief, it also trains people mentally to fight against it. For example, he imposes limitations and penalties so those not influenced by advice can be restrained from lawlessness by binding them under the law. In modern times, our society is suffering from various anxiety situations, due to which there is uncertainty, stagnation, and anxiety in life. Below are some reasons for the degradation of our society, which will be explained in this article.
