Spamhaus does not (and can not) do things like shutdown people's sites.

They can, atmost, detect spamming/phishing and such other illegal activities and contact service providers about it.

So either your host was shutdown by their provider (not spamhaus) because of illegal activity originating on their server/domain OR your host is lying to you - plain and simple.

Thanks for your reply "mOrpheuS", may be it happen as the reason that you informed.
I moved my sites to new hosting but lost two months of the database. Mad
Next, I have to back up my sites and the database more frequently.

Thanks again.

I guess an account on the server of your host was indeed spamming and after an alert from spamhaus the server might have been shut down or similar. I know that the way Spamhaus works, can be quite controversial and they indeed might be backed by big companies (hosts/isps). However, there was probably a lot of spam and it's really the host/datacenter that shuts down accounts/servers and not Spamhaus.

Also, it's indeed a very good idea to always keep recent backups!
