  67. 67. In our social relationship, some of us find it amusing to ridicule, mock, jeer, scoff at, laugh, make fun or taunt at others. It is especially so, when we are in a kind of cliques or grouping. Why do we do this? It is due to our self-conceit and arrogance. Never for a moment do we consider that such behaviour is wrong. In such association or gathering, each one tries to deflect attention of their own defects by projecting the weakness of others, especially of those people we consider to be outside our circle, outside our group. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2015))
  68. 68. We feel secure with our buddies, joking and laughing like the old witches of "Macbeth" who fail to see their own evil and ugliness. Some of us even considers it a norm to do this, and any attempt at changing this behaviour amongst our peers is met with accusations of having "no sense of humour", "too serious", "no fun to be with" etc. But the "joke" is actually on us if we indulge in such practice, as Allah s.w.t. says: "it may well be that the one derided is better" than ourselves. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2015))
  69. 69. Deriding others has many forms. Verbal derision, sarcasm, by gesturing, mimicking or even giving nicknames - which aims at ridiculing the person. If we are to analyze what motivates our actions, it is that unashamed pride and conceit we think of ourselves. And because we are used to directing these derision towards others, we do not feel how it can possibly hurt. But - What if others were to do it to us?

  70. 70. Although in this verse, by using the male gender it generally is quite sufficient and usually applies to both, male and female, yet Allah repeated the command by specifically addressing the women, lest some people may try to excuse themselves from this command just because they are not men. This, indeed, demonstrates the seriousness of the command, that it is to be observed by every Muslim, as it removes any ambiguity, lest some may try to seek excuse by legalistic arguments. There is no doubt that this commandment applies to every Muslim - both male & female. SERIOUSNESS OF THIS COMMAND All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2015))
  71. 71. Also, one aspect of the teaching of Islam is that it emphasises respect towards the honour and dignity of others - everyone - Muslim as well as non-Muslim.

  72. 72. Also, one aspect of the teaching of Islam is that it emphasises respect towards the honour and dignity of others - everyone - Muslim as well as non-Muslim. All mankind are the children of Adam a.s. and deserves the appropriate respect because Allah s.w.t. says: RESPECT DIGNITY & HONOUR OF PEOPLE ““NOW, INDEED, We have conferred dignity (honour) on the children ofNOW, INDEED, We have conferred dignity (honour) on the children of Adam, and borne them over land and sea, and provided for themAdam, and borne them over land and sea, and provided for them sustenance out of the good things of life, and favoured them far abovesustenance out of the good things of life, and favoured them far above most of Our creation:”most of Our creation:” ((Qur’an: Isra’ : 17: 70Qur’an: Isra’ : 17: 70)) All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2015))
  73. 73. So every mankind must be respected. Some perhaps may have tarnished this God-given honour upon themselves but, we are not to seek out nor assume this, but we are to give everyone the benefit of doubt, and unless there are clear evidence to the contrary, we are still to respect them.
