Islam is the religion that focuses on Oneness of ALLAH Almighty, Obligatory namaz five times a day, keep fast in the Holy month of Ramadan, give charity to needy in the form of Zakat and perform obligatory pilgrimage Hajj at least once in a lifetime. To the non-Muslims and those Muslims who have very little knowledge about religion Islam, for them Islam is just about these obligatory acts what they actually don’t understand is that religion Islam is a complete code of life , it gives solution to every problem, it provide guidance and the human factor has great importance in Islam.
The human side of religion Islam comprises of all the set rules of civics and ethics that make a society or a Muslim community prosperous in a way that each and every member of society gets to enjoy equality, equal respect and rights in the society. In this regard, religion Islam has greatly emphasizes on its followers to make sure that they deal all members o society politely and respectfully, respect every members of the society and every one and take care of the reputation of each other. The lines below will discuss that Islam forbids Muslims from ridiculing other and also making sure that they are giving them respect that they deserve as humans.
O you who have believed, let not a people ridicule [another] people; perhaps they may be better than them; nor let women ridicule [other] women; perhaps they may be better than them. And do not insult one another and do not call each other by [offensive] nicknames. Wretched is the name of disobedience after [one’s] faith. And whoever does not repent – then it is those who are the wrongdoers.
Above mentioned Ayat gives the comprehensive detail that how Muslim should treat other people in terms of inter-personal interaction. Important points that are mentioned in this ayah pertaining to ridiculing others are:
Firstly a Muslim should never ever laugh at others because there is also a possibility that the other person would be better than you. As humans we are fallible and imperfect, we all have some kind of lackness and weakness and innate flaws, for this reason no one has a right to laugh at others for their life, mistakes or their flaws. In case, if someone is weak in any aspect of his personality he has equal chance to spend his life in most perfect way. Therefore, there is not any single reason a Muslim can laugh at others either male or female.
Secondly, a Muslim is not allowed to defame another person and also he can’t be sarcastic to the person. Both are the acts that ruin the personality and confidence of other person. If someone is spreading rumours about another person, it can harms the reputation of that person so be careful because Islam don’t allow this.
Third, the most commonly practiced acts in our society that Islam strictly forbids is calling others by making their nick names that have wicked and negative connotations.
