Lessons from Surah Hujurat

Excerpts taken from a ‘Weekly Majlis Program’ :

This a Surah of Akhlaaq discussing Social Etiquette …

Believers are all brothers…Islam brought them together and bonded them…The Aus and Khazraj tribes living in Madinah were always at loggerheads with each other. Islam united and cemented their relationship. However, there were a few occasions when their pre-Islamic enmity would be ignited and they would begin to quarrel. Rasulullah Sallallaahu alayhi Wasallam would cause peace between them again.

Indeed, Allah loves those who act justly ~ Surah Al-Ĥujurāt 49:9

Don’t have Jealousy for one another … Don’t be Envious … Don’t harbor Malice … Don’t Oppress the other … Don’t turn your backs to the other … Don’t mock and ridicule one another … Don’t make Gheebat … Don’t Backbite … Don’t be Suspicious … Don’t find faults with one another …

Be the Servants of Allah as Brothers ….

Our entire lives are centered around these immoral traits. We should try and curb these evil tendencies of our heart.  If somebody dishonors your brother then it is your duty to stand up and defend him. We tend to ‘enjoy’ those few moments when a person is being spoken ill of! There are various virtues and blessings for that person who defends the honor of his muslim brother or sister. May Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala protect us. If we make a mistake and we plunge into the abyss of Haraam, filth, evil and vice … The doors of Taubah (repentance) are open! … We should make amends if we have usurped anyones rights and ask the person for forgiveness …
