  1. 1. Surat Al-HujratO you who have believed, do not put [yourselves] before Allah and HisMessenger but fear Allah . Indeed, Allah is Hearing and Knowing.O you who have believed, do not raise your voices above the voice ofthe Prophet or be loud to him in speech like the loudness of some ofyou to others, for fear that your deeds become worthless while youperceive not.Indeed, those who lower their voices facing the Messenger of Allah -they are the ones whose hearts Allah has tested for righteousness. Forthem is forgiveness and great reward.- consulting with Quran and the Sunnah before taking decisions orforming opinions.- Ordering respect, honor and esteem towards the Prophet 1
  2. 2. Surat Al-HujratIndeed, those who call you, [O Muhammad], from behind the roomsmost of them do not use reason.And if they had been patient until you [could] come out to them, itwould have been better for them. But Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. - Admonishing those who call the Prophet from behind Dwellings: - Proper etiquettes of visiting with elders. - Muslims should not speak loudly, especially with their elders.O you who have believed, if there comes to you a disobedient one withinformation, investigate, lest you harm a people out of ignorance andbecome, over what you have done, regretful. 2
  3. 3. Surat Al-HujratAnd know that among you is the Messenger of Allah . If he were toobey you in much of the matter, you would be in difficulty, but Allahhas endeared to you the faith and has made it pleasing in your heartsand has made hateful to you disbelief, defiance and disobedience.Those are the [rightly] guided.[It is] as bounty from Allah and favor. And Allah is Knowing and Wise- Investigating the Reliability of the News before passing judgment.- Nameema or slander is prohibited in Islam.- Follow the guidance of the prophet and the righteous leaders: although we don’thave the prophet with us now we still have the Quran and the teachings of hisprophet with us. 3

But if one of them oppresses the other,then fight against the one that oppresses until it returns to theordinance of Allah . And if it returns, then make settlement betweenthem in justice and act justly. Indeed, Allah loves those who act fairly.The believers are but brothers, so make settlement between yourbrothers. And fear Allah that you may receive mercy.- Believers are brothers and sisters in Islam (Ayah 10 is a very famous ayahabout brotherhood in Islam)- Muslims must not dispute or fight.- Muslims should avoid fighting and must reconcile whenever they fight.- Allah orders his true servants to mediate to end disputes and fightsamong Muslims. 4
  5. 5. Surat Al-HujratO 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 oneanother and do not call each other by [offensive] nicknames.Miserable is the name of disobedience after [ones] faith. And whoeverdoes not repent - then it is those who are the wrongdoers.The Prohibition of mocking and ridiculing and name calling others:In Islam its haram (unlawful) to mock or debase others whether bywords, deeds, or indications. 5
  6. 6. Surat Al-HujratO you who have believed, avoid much [negative] assumption. Indeed,some assumption is sin. And do not spy or backbite each other. Wouldone of you like to eat the flesh of his brother when dead? You woulddetest it. And fear Allah; indeed, Allah is accepting of repentance andMerciful.O mankind, indeed We have created you from male and female andmade you peoples and tribes that you may know one another. Indeed,the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you.Indeed, Allah is Knowing and Acquainted. 6
  7. 7. Surat Al-Hujrat- Allah prohibits hurting people based on false Thann or assumption: asMuslims we are required to have a good opinion of Muslims until clearevidence to contrary comes to us.- By pointing out the faults of others we are showing our own badcharacter.- Spying is Haram in Islam: Allah loves those who protects the secrets ofother people and refrains from exposing their faults.- Gheeba (backbiting) is common but it is a major sin.- the unity of mankind: verse 13 is a great divine declaration that allpeople are brothers and sisters: the difference between people is a giftfrom Allah, though it is teast from Allah because some people use thisdifference and make it into a reason to feel superior and arrogant overother people.- Taqwa is the best and most honorable thing a Muslims can do in Islam.(Taqwa is the love of Allah and the fear of displeasing him) 7
  8. 8. Surat Al-HujratThe Bedouins say, "We have believed." Say, "You have not [yet]believed; but say [instead], We have submitted, for faith has not yetentered your hearts. And if you obey Allah and His Messenger, He willnot deprive you from your deeds of anything. Indeed, Allah isForgiving and Merciful."The believers are only the ones who have believed in Allah and HisMessenger and then doubt not but strive with their properties andtheir lives in the cause of Allah. It is those who are the truthful. 8
  9. 9. Surat Al-HujratSay, "Would you acquaint Allah with your religion while Alla h knowswhatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth, and Allahknows of all things?"They consider it a favor to you that they have accepted Islam. Say, "Donot consider your Islam a favor to me. Rather, Allah has conferredfavor upon you that He has guided you to the faith, if you should betruthful."Indeed, Allah knows the unseen [aspects] of the heavens and theearth. And Allah is seeing of what you doThe difference between Islam and Iman: Iman is in the hearts of people, iswhat people believe and may hide in their hearts. While Islam is the spiritualand moral actions people do like prayer, Hajj, charity and other good actions.- Iman must be proven through good actions: when we talk about the purity ofbelief, we mean how much the belief affects actions. A person with a strongbelief will be unable to do bad deeds because his belief is so strong it generatesa fear that prevents him from being tempted to disobey Allah. 9
