MAKING FUN OF OTHERS IN THE LIGHT OF ISLAM

islam

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.

ETTIQUETTS OF EATING IN ISLAM

islam

The religion of Islam is a complete code of life. It is not limited to physical, spiritual and emotional areas; rather it gives teaching to all aspects of life and also tells how to fulfil one purpose. What is the purpose of human life? Islam gives a very clear vision that the purpose of human life is to worship the One True God ALLAH Almighty. It is a thing to understand that all our actions, deeds no matter how grand or how small or trivial, can be easily turned into worship. All actions that we do in the daily course of our life can be raised to the level of worship simply by remembering to praise ALLAH Almighty and to seek His pleasure.

Religion Islam makes remembrance so easy by giving us proper guidelines. It teaches us in a moderate and gentle way that life is given to us to worship ALLAH Almighty, and worship is the only meaning of human life. Even eating has manners and etiquette; Food plays vital role in our daily lives. Islam also gives great importance to Cleanliness and purity and it is an important part of religion Islam.

Not only a Muslim purifies and cleans himself before doing acts of worship but he must pay great attention to the hygiene and cleanliness of his bodies and his surroundings at all times. Our bodies are gift to us and living in filthy and dirty conditions causes so many dangerous disease and ill health. Therefore, before cooking or making food it is very important to be sure that the food, the food preparing area and the hands through a person is going to touch the food must be clean.

Muslims begin every action or task by mentioning the name of ALLAH Almighty, and so eating. It is very significant to keep in mind that Islam is a moderate way of life; we must not overindulge and also should not deprive ourselves of the delicious food that ALLAH Almighty has provided for us. Eating by using the right hand is one such etiquette and it is obligatory for Muslims to eat with their right hand unless there is a genuine reason such as injury or illness.

In situations where all are eating from common platters, taking the food that is near and directly in front of you is considered good manners. Reaching over other peoples and looking for the most delicious pieces of food that you want to eat can make others uncomfortable and it gives your bad impression or makes you appear to be greedy or ungrateful.  Part of the etiquette of food eating includes eating in moderation or limit and not overindulging in eating no matter how much appetizing the food is.

ISLAM IS THE ONLY RIGHT RELIGION

holy kaaba

Islam is a religion of unity and peace, peace to all humanity. Islam is the religion that leads humanity from the depths of illiteracy, darkness and ignorance towards the right path of light and knowledge. In short, Religion Islam means peace acquired by all humans by submitting their will according to the Will of ALLAH Almighty.

Furthermore, Religion Islam not only fosters love among fellow Muslims but it is a merciful for all humanity. The term peace” of Islam has got different dimensions: peace with ALLAH Almighty, peace with community and peace with all of humanity irrespective of their caste, religion and creed. Islam guides everyone towards the path of tolerance and non-violence and shows the path of piety and righteousness.

Islam is a Religion with such high norms and a value enshrined in its very name and is misunderstood by Non Muslims intolerant and violent. If any Muslim commits any thing bad or wrong, it is directly or indirectly attributed to religion Islam.

The misinterpretation of many mischievous Non Muslims has given a bad image to religion of peace. But, at this stage, people should use their senses and know that Islam is not what any Non Muslim and enemy of Islam says. Islam is not the scholar’s interpretation; Islam is what the Holy Quran says and teaches and what Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of ALLAH Almighty be upon Him) of Islam says and teaches. These two are the primary sources of religion Islam.

Muslims are strictly prohibited to force people by tongue, by weapon or by any forceful act of other faiths to accept religion Islam.

ALLAH Almighty says in verse 2:256

There shall be no compulsion in [acceptance of] the religion. The right course has become clear from the wrong. So whoever disbelieves in Taghut and believes in ALLAH has grasped the most trustworthy handhold with no break in it. And ALLAH is Hearing and Knowing.


This is the foundation for tolerance towards every religion of this world and their people. There is not any force and no compulsion on any person to accept Islam. If he or she by heart wants to accept religion Islam, it has to be necessarily and essentially out of their own free will and wish and must not at the point of sword or weapon. This is the beauty and essence of Islam. Islam is an open invitation to all humanity and everyone has right either to accept Islam it or to reject it. Term Violence is not in the dictionary of religion Islam. There is not any place for violence in Islam, neither in the Holy Quran nor in the Sunnah of Prophet (PBUH). It is mentioned in many verse of the Holy Quran that ALLAH Almighty does not like those people who spread mischief on this earth.Moreover, the biggest violence considered in Islam is killing innocent people.

IMPORTANCE HAS A GREAT SIGNIFICANCE IN ISLAM

islam

Namaz is the first pillar of Islam that the Prophet (PBUH) mentioned after mentioning the Testimony of Faith (Imaan), by which one becomes a Muslim.  Namaz was made obligatory upon all the prophets and for all peoples.

Verse 20:13-14 of Holy Quran,

And I have chosen you, so listen to what is revealed [to you]. Indeed, I am ALLAH. There is no deity except Me, so worship Me and establish prayer for My remembrance.

In the same way, the prayers were made obligatory upon the Prophet Muhammad, furthermore, when ALLAH Almighty praises the believers, such as in the start of the chapter entitled ‘al-Muminoon’ (the Believers), one of the primary descriptions ALLAH Almighty states is their adherence to the prayers.

The significance of the namaz lies in the fact that no matter what actions an individual performs in his life, the most significant aspect is one’s relationship to ALLAH Almighty, that is, person’s faith (imaan),

God-consciousness, sincerity and Ibadah of ALLAH Almighty. Thus, if the prayers are sound and appropriate, the rest of the deeds will be sound and proper; and if the namaz are not sound and proper, then the rest of the deeds and actions will not be sound and proper.

In actuality, the namaz is performed properly with true remembrance of ALLAH Almighty and turning to Him for pardon it will have an eternal effect on the person.  After he finishes the namaz, his heart will be filled with the remembrance of ALLAH Almighty.  He will be frightened as well as hopeful of ALLAH Almighty. ALLAH Almighty has mentioned this aspect of the namaz when He has said in verse 29:45 of Holy Quran,

Recite, [O Muhammad], what has been revealed to you of the Book and establish prayer. Indeed, prayer prohibits immorality and wrongdoing, and the remembrance of ALLAH is greater. And ALLAH knows that which you do.

Verse 70:19-23 of Holy Quran,

Indeed, mankind was created anxious: When evil touches him, impatient, And when good touches him, withholding [of it], Except the observers of prayer – Those who are constant in their prayer

As for the Hereafter, ALLAH Almighty’s forgiveness and pleasure is closely linked to the prayers. The prayers are a kind of purification for a human being. He turns and meets with his Lord five times every day. This repeated standing in front of ALLAH Almighty should keep the person from doing sinful acts during the whole day.  Moreover, it must also be a time of regret and repentance, such that he earnestly asks ALLAH Almighty for forgiveness for all those sins that he committed.  In adding up, the namaz in itself is a superior deed that wipes away many of the evil deeds that he performed.

BIBI HAJRA AND STATUS OF WOMEN IN ISLAM

islam

The status of Women in Islam can not be doubtful as Islam has given privileges and rights to women which they never had in any other religions. But still nowadays the most frequent attack on Islamic values and morals is to question the status of women in Islam. The status of women in Islam is unique and matchless does not have any resemblance with previous religions or systems. Let us talk about the status of women in Islam with view to the history of Safa and Marwa. Safa and Marwa are two hills near to Holy Kaaba in city Makkah. Muslims who perform the Hajj and Umrah should run between the hills of Safa and Marwa. This is in the memory of a mother’s sacrifice for her son.

The great woman was Bibi Hajra (May ALLAH Almighty be pleased with her). She was the wife of Hazrat Ibraheem (A.S). Bibi Hajra was the Mother of Hazrat Ismaeel (A.S). Bibi Hajra’s sacrifice took place when She was left alone with her baby Hazrat Ismaeel (AS) in the valley of city Makkah all for the sake of ALLAH Almighty.

Verse 14:37 of Holy Quran;

Our Lord, I have settled some of my descendants in an uncultivated valley near Your sacred House, our Lord, that they may establish prayer. So make hearts among the people incline toward them and provide for them from the fruits that they might be grateful.

When Bibi Hajra became thirsty and Her Hazrat Ismaeel (AS) child also became thirsty. She started looking at her baby tossing in agony. She left him, for she could not bear looking at him, and found that the mountain of Safa was the nearest mountain. She stood on it and started looking at the valley enthusiastically so that she might see somebody, but She could not see anyone. Then she descended from Safa and when she reached the valley, she ran in the valley like a person in trouble and distress, till she crossed the valley and reached Marwa where she stood and started looking and expecting to see some water or someone help, but she could not see anybody. She repeated that act (running between Safa and Marwa) seven times. This act of running between the hills of Safa and Marwa by Bibi Hajra was so much loved by ALLAH Almighty that ALLAH has made running between Safa and Marwa obligatory for every man and Woman who performs Umrah and Hajj.

Verse 2:158 of Holy Quran;

Indeed, as-Safa and al-Marwah are among the symbols of ALLAH. So whoever makes Hajj to the House or performs ‘umrah – there is no blame upon him for walking between them. And whoever volunteers good – then indeed, ALLAH is appreciative and Knowing.

Today we drink from Zamzam water and it is ever flowing water, when you go for Umrah and Hajj. What a beautiful example of Status of women in Islam!!
