Enquire about things before taking action , take action only if are dead sure about the truth , or else you may cause harm
Surah Hujrat Verse 6.
O believers! If some wicked person brings you any news, inquire thoroughly into its truth (lest) you should cause (undue) harm to a people unknowingly, and later feel regret for what you have done.
When two parties of Muslims fight , reconcile between them
Surah Hujrat Verse 9.
. And if two parties of the Muslims fight, make them reconcile. Then if either of these (parties) commits injustice and aggression against the other, fight against (the party) that is committing aggression till it returns to Allahâ€™s command (of establishing peace). When they revert and submit, make peace between them with equity. And put justice to work. Surely, Allah loves those who do justice.
Surah Hujrat Verse 10.
The truth is that (all) believers are brothers (to one another). So make peace between your two brothers and always fear Allah, so that you may be shown mercy.
Dont make fun of others and avoid ridiculing others
Quraan (Sura al-Hujurat, Verse 11)
O believers! Let no community ridicule another community. It is likely that they may be better than those (who ridicule). Nor should women make fun of other women. It is likely that they may be better than those (who make fun). And do not offend or find fault with one another, nor call each other names. Calling someone wicked or indecent after (he embraces) faith is an extremely evil name. And those who do not turn to Allah in repentance, it is they who are the wrongdoers.
[ALLAH’S Quran – 33:21] â€œYou people have always had an exemplar of the Messenger of Allah who displays a good quality as well as a magnificent attribute of a great master whose conduct induces imitation by the one in whose bosom hope springs eternal of Allah’s mercy and of the bliss of the hereafter and applies remembrance to Allah often enough.â€
Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) Prayed for forgiveness.
[Muslim, Book #035, Hadith #6563] â€œAbu Musa Ash’ari reported on the authority of his father that Allahs Apostle (may peace be upon him) used to supplicate in these words:” O Allah, forgive me my faults, my ignorance, my immoderation in my concerns. And Thou art better aware (of my affairs) than myself. O Allah, grant me forgiveness (of the faults which I committed) seriously or otherwise (and which I committed inadvertently and deliberately). All these (failings) are in me. O Allah, grant me forgiveness from the fault which I did in haste or deferred, which I committed in privacy or in public and Thou art better aware of (them) than myself. Thou art the First and the Last and over all things Thou art Omnipotent.”
[Bukhari, Book #75, Hadith #319] â€œNarrated Abu Huraira: I heard Allahâ€™s Apostle saying. ” By Allah! I ask for forgiveness from Allah and turn to Him in repentance more than seventy times a day.”
The naming of Hazrat Imam Hussain radiallahu taala anhu and Hazrat Imam Hassan radiallahu taala anhu
When Hazrat Imam Hussain radiallahu taala anhu and Hazrat Imam Hassan radiallahu taala anhu were born on different occasions their father wanted to give them other names, but the Holy Prophet Muhammed Salalaahu Alaihi wasallam specifically named them from these names, these names were specially saved and kept for them .
The names of “al-Hasan“ and “al-Husayn“ were not known before that; i.e. in the state of ignorance (Jahilyah). In fact their grandfather Prophet Muhammad sallallahualayhi wa sallam was the first one who named with them(who named somebody with these names).
Ibn al-Athir said in “Asad al-Ghabah”
Leaders of the youth of paradise
After they were born the Holy Prophet Muhammed Salalaahu Alaihi wasallam did not give them a basharat that they will be heaven , but he gave a Basaharat that they will be leaders of the youth of paradise.
The Prophet – blessings and peace be upon him – declared: “these two sons of mine are the leaders of the youth in Paradise.“
[Sunan al-Tirmidhi, Kitab al-Manaqib, Manaqib Abi Muhammad al-Hasan, Hadith no. 3793, Vol. 5, Page 426].
Narrated: Ibn Umar
“The Messenger of Allah (saw) said: ‘Hasan and Husain will be the leaders of the youth of Paradise, and their father(Syadinna Maula Ali radiallahu taala anhu) is better than them.”
Sunan Ibn Majah , Chapter 1 , Book of Sunnah Hadith no: 118
God has granted intellect to human beings. The intellect entails responsibility. The more intellect a person has, the more he/she is responsible.
When the intellect is missing, the responsibility is also not there. Little children are not held responsible, because their intellect has not yet developed. The insane are not responsible, because they have lost the intellectual capacity. However, part of our being human is also that we make mistakes. Sometime we make mistakes without deliberation and intention. But sometime we knowingly and deliberately sin and do wrong to others.
It is said: â€œTo err is human and to forgive is divine.â€ Both parts of this statement are very true. As human beings we are responsible, but we do also make mistakes and we are constantly in need of forgiveness. Islam speaks about two elements of forgiveness: a) Godâ€™s forgiveness; b) Human forgiveness. We need both, because we do wrong in our relations to God as well as in our relations to each other.
There are many names of God given in the Qurâ€™an. They are called â€œMost beautiful namesâ€ and they indicate many different and diverse attributes and qualities of God. Some of these names are related to His mercy and forgiveness. Let us look at some of these names:
*1. Al-Ghafoor (The Most Forgiving):* This name occurs in the Qurâ€™an more than 70 times. There are other names from the same root, such as Ghafir and Ghaffar. The meaning of the Arabic word â€œghafaraâ€ is to cover, to hide and from it comes the meaning â€œto excuse,â€ â€œto pardon,â€ â€œto remitâ€ and â€œto forgive.â€ God does all these things. In the Qurâ€™an, it is mentioned that God does not forgive the Shirk (without repentance) but He may forgive every other sin for whomsoever He wills. (4:116) We must turn to God to seek His forgiveness.
*2. Al-Afuw:* This has another part of forgiveness. This name occurs in the Qurâ€™an five times. Literally, the word â€˜Afw means â€œto release,â€ â€œto heal,â€ â€œto restore,â€ â€œto remit.â€ Thus in relation to God it means â€œto release us from the burden of punishment due to our sins and mistakes; to restore our honor after we have dishonored ourselves by committing sins and making mistakes.â€ Sometimes in the Qurâ€™an both names, Afuw and Ghafoor, come together.
Who are the Poor on Judgement Day
Abu Huraira.reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: Do you know who is poor? They (the Companions of the Holy Prophet) said: A poor man amongst us is one who has neither dirham with him nor wealth. He (the Holy Prophet) said: The poor of my Ummah would be he who would come on the Day of Resurrecton with prayers and fasts and Zakat but (he would find himself bankrupt on that day as he would have exhausted his funds of virtues) since he hurled abuses upon others, brought calumny against others and unlawfully consumed the wealth of others and shed the blood of others and beat others, and his virtues would be credited to the account of one (who suffered at his hand). And if his good deeds fall short to clear the account, then his sins would be entered in (his account) and he would be thrown in the Hell-Fire.
Sahih Muslim Book 32, Number 6251:
May Allah guard us against Opressing others , May Allah strengthen our Moral Character
Oppression is the darkness on the Day of Resurrection.
Jabir b. Abdullah reported that Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: Be on your guard against committing oppression, for oppression is a darkness on the Day of Resurrection, and be on your guard against pettimindedness for pettimindedness destroyed those who were before you, as it incited them to shed blood and make lawful what was unlawful for them.
Sahih Muslim Book 32, Number 6248:
Ibu ‘Umar reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: Oppression is the darkness on the Day of Resurrection.
Sahih Muslim Book 32, Number 6249:
Saving others from Oppression
Salim reported on the authority of his father that Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: A Muslim is the brother of a fellow-Muslim. He should neither commit oppression upon him nor ruin him, and he who meets the need of a brother, Allah would meet his needs, and he who relieved a Muslim from hardship Allah would relieve him from the hardships to which he would be put on the Day of Resurrection, and he who did not expose (the follies of a Muslim) Allah would conceal his follies on the Day of Resurrection.
