People often associate every sin committed. Whether it’s a minor sins or even a big sins. We never realize that the consequences of sin can lead to reinforcements or disasters. The Qur’an has told the stories of the ancients who were destroyed by Allah SWT because of their sins.
See the sinfulness of a group of people who disbelieved in the prophet’s command until the punishment was fulfilled. Allah has sent down the punishment and the punishment immediately. The effect is not only on those who sin, but on everyone around them.
Thus Allah has reminded his servant far away in his words:
“And fear what has not only afflicted those of you who are dhalim. And know that Allah is severe in punishment.” Qs. Al Anfal: 25)
One day while the boat was sailing in the middle of the ocean, someone had a hole in it. Then what will happen? So who’s going to drown? Just the perp or the entire crew? Yes everything will certainly sink. Although they did not participate in the destruction but they drowned, as a result of the evil deeds of one person.
That is the result of sin. It is only the one who does it, or he who does it,

Nahi mungkar means that people should stay away from actions that are forbidden by Allah SWT because it will cause damage.
