This thesis work analyzes the effects of moral corruption on the lives of the contemporary Muslims in Kaduna state. This is because moral corruption is a social problem, it is so vast in nature and it touches all aspect of human existence irrespective of where one resides. In Nigeria today, the level of corruption has unfortunately reached a level of international recognition. In view of this pervasive extent of corruption and indiscipline in almost all facets of life in Nigeria and in honest recognition of their adverse economic, political, socio-cultural and moral costs to the nation, it became indispensable to find a way or ways of tackling it, a way that is realistic and functional. In view of this, the research distributed a total of 800 questionnaires to the three senatorial zones of Kaduna state were used as respondents. Out of the 800 questionnaires distributed to them, 730 were fit for analysis. The Statistical package of the SPSS IBM 20 was used to analyze the data. The three null research hypotheses where tested using the Analysis of variance (ANOVA). All hypotheses are tested at 0.05 alpha level of significance. A rigorous evaluation of the nature and cause of the aspect of moral corruption among the contemporary Muslim population of Kaduna state in Nigeria; reveals a long-sustained serial departure from Islamic education guidance, which is made worse by an equally daunting extraneous influence of non-Muslims cultures. From the direct responses of the subject of this research, current data suggest the unanimous need to reinforce those primordial instrument for entrenching Islamic knowledge and compliance to formalized legal provisions, as well as informal etiquettes of the Islamic faith. Requirements such as respect and obedience to the elders by the youth, where brought forward as a way to install moral values in the society. And the acknowledgement that misappropriation of public funds on the part of the government contributes to the moral decadence in the society.

1.1       Background of the Study 
All Praises be to Allah, Who guides to the sublime moral values. May the peace and blessings of Allah (SWT) be upon the seal of all Prophets, Muhammad (SAW), who was sent as guidance and mercy to the entire creatures and demonstrated moral life that leads to his unparalleled success. May the Almighty Allah be pleased with the companions of the Prophet (SAW) who successfully transmitted all the moral values of the religion.

Islam seeks to purify the soul of man by instilling the consciousness of Allah and cleansing it from all filthiness and corruptions. This is achieved by establishing mutual love, sympathy, decorum, and humbleness among mankind. In this regard, the Prophet (SAW) explained the essence of his mission in the following submission.
The only reason I have been sent is to perfect good manner. (Adabul Mufrad, Hadith no. 273 )
In another relation; the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said,

I was sent to perfect good character. (al-Muwatta, Hadith no. 47.1.8)
The above Hadith reveals the significance of good manners as a complement of faith in Islam. In conforming the saying of the Prophet (SAW), the Almighty Allah Has the following instruction:

Say: “(But) the things that my Lord has indeed forbidden are the Fawahish (immoral deeds) whether committed openly or secretly, and Ithm, and transgression without right, and joining partners with Allah for which He has given no authority, and saying things about Allah of which you have no knowledge”
(al-A’raf, 7:33)
In the commentary of the above verse, Yusuf Ali mentioned that the forbidden things are described in four categories; the first is what is shameful or indecent, the second is sins against self and trespasses or excesses of every sort, the third one is erecting fetishes or false gods and the fourth one is corrupting religion by debasing superstitions.

Islam strongly abhors immoralities and upholds morality as one of the major factor that admits a person to eternal bliss in the Hereafter. Thus, indulgence in immoral acts may halter a person from gaining entrance into Paradise. The following Hadith buttresses the statement.......
