  19. 19. LESSONS FROM SURAH AL-HUJURAT FROM PREVIOUS LESSON # 9 a – “O YOU who have attained to faith! Do not put yourselves forward in the presence of [what] Allah and His Messenger [may have ordained], but remain conscious of [and fear] Allah: for, verily, Allah is all-hearing, all-knowing!” (Qur’an: Hujurat: 49: 1) All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  20. 20. Points for discussion and reflection Islamic education stress much upon 'Adab' (knowledge of the order of things and putting everything, or dealing with things according to its proper place in their hierarchy of existence). Thus when we approach the Qur'an, remember it is not an ordinary Book - but direct revelations from Allah s.w.t. His Words are perfected and expounded, containing profound Wisdom: more so when He addresses us specifically by "O You who Believe (who have attained to Faith)!" - we must respond : "LabbaykAllah!" (Here I am O Allah! - am ready to heed & obey). All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)

  25. 25. As Muslims, we are to hold all our brothers and sisters with equal respect, without harbouring any ill-thoughts concerning them. Their honour and dignity has to be safeguarded, as Islam guarantees it. But how often, our attitude towards our brother or sister would easily be affected because of news that is maliciously disseminated to disparage him/her. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  26. 26. Whether, in the first place, is it right or wrong to spread such news, or whether the story is true or lies, seemed unimportant because we would have allowed the poison to affect our opinion of the person concerned. How easily we give credence to it. We are quick to accuse, even though we may not be uttering it? The honour we held for our brother/sister quickly dissipate, and every actions done by him/her is scrutinised as though to implicate or rather with a view to confirm what we had already concluded in our minds. In fact we have already judged him/her unjustly. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  27. 27. Seldom, if ever, do we seek to verify from the person concerned, but we feel satisfied just with this news, although one-sided, unverified, and we shamelessly feel no qualms about acting prejudicially. Sometimes, we began to behave pretentiously in front of the poor brother/sister as though we are not aware of the news. Why pretend? .... it is because we felt ashamed for ourselves for not defending his/her honour in his/her absence. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  28. 28. Spreading news negatively about somebody to others is a cowardly act! To condone it, would be to implicate oneself with this same guilt as the one who started it. Rumour-mongering (spreading untruth about others) is indeed, not only a very dangerous and despicable social ill, it is amongst the list of forbidden acts called "kaba-ir" (major sins). Alas for us who may inadvertently been exposed to these, we must guard ourselves from believing in it, and we must not allow such unverified assertion to draw us into sinning against our brother/sister concerned. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  29. 29. Yet why do our nafs (desire or self) likes or is inclines to listen to such news concerning others? News of scandals and 'juicy' gossips of an acquaintance is welcomed or even sought. Perhaps we are merely pampering to our self-conceit which wants assurance of its own ‘superiority' over others; that feeling of "holier than thou!" attitude which gives us 'satisfaction'. Thus our pre-occupation with the alleged "faults" of others, makes us forget that we are the ones that is at fault, nay, clearly the ones who are guilty of a grave sin. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  30. 30. In this day and age, with information technology advancing and dissemination of news becoming easy, the pertinent moral question of - "is spreading negativity (even, if it is true) of a person to the general public, a sin or not?" is never even asked by Muslims! Those who are without religion may use ‘press-freedom’ or 'public interest', as justification - but can Muslims use this excuse? What does Islam has to say regarding this? All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  31. 31. And those Muslims who are in journalism should ask: "Are all the codes of modern journalism compatible with Islamic ethics?" What kind of news about people can be disseminated, and how should it be presented as public knowledge, as education, without us falling foul to the strict Islamic rule for safeguarding personal honour & dignity of individuals? This warning similarly applies to those who are active on the “social media” , as well as authors, script writers, bloggers, etc. Sinning against a person is indeed serious and may not be easily forgiven by Allah, unless the person concerned is willing to forgive. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  32. 32. And Allah's forgiveness depends upon our repentance ( taubah) And it does not constitute (taubah) repentance, unless there is the feeling of remorse (nadaam) in us and accompanied with the earnest efforts towards seeking forgiveness and making correction or reparation (kifaarat). All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  33. 33. Tale-bearing is often a characteristic of those inclined to iniquity (faasiq) precisely because the very act of spreading unsubstantiated rumours affecting the reputations of other persons itself, is a spiritual offence - albeit a grave & serious one. Such person do not have any qualms to harm others, yet they do not dare to confront directly those whom they harbour ill-will. They cowardly 'oppresses' using this diabolical 'tale-bearing' that can 'whisper into the hearts' of other people, as described by Allah in which He commands us to seek His refuge from them. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  34. 34. SAY: "I seek refuge with the Sustainer of men, the Sovereign of men, the God of men, from the evil of the whispering, elusive tempter who whispers in the hearts of men, from all [temptation to evil by] invisible forces as well as men,“ (Qur’an: an-Naas: 114: 1-6) All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  35. 35. If we encounter such tale-bearers, we should hold to doubting them unless it comes with unequivocal & substantiated proof; and thus we must not allow any of what they convey concerning other people to be irresponsibly disseminated. This should stop with us. Yet, many of us even became the very channel for many unverified news about others to spread! Especially today in the virtual internet world where such 'forward-ings' seems so easy on a mere click. Some have no qualms to even post on their websites, FB’s , Twitters such malicious tales, photos, etc. casting aspersion upon people who may be unaware of it or are unable to respond or defend themselves . All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  36. 36. Those guilty of such despicable act should stop and seek reparation, if not they are actually indulging, constantly and repeatedly in this sin of 'defamation' from the time they put it up for others to access. They are in fact slandering continuously without having to even speak. They are in fact chalking up sins, at a tremendous pace daily - nay, each time whenever there are people reading their postings and harbouring negative thoughts on the person being maligned. And they think Allah s.w.t. will not judge them - that their book of record is not constantly being kept updated? Ever wonder how would such wrong done could ever be undone?! Yet, it persists! All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  37. 37. There are some who uses absurd qualifying phrase to somewhat justify their behaviour, like "I know this is not confirm, but do you know that so-and-so...."; or "actually I am not suppose to tell anyone but,...." etc. If others were to do the same to us, cast a slur upon our reputations, we would not have liked it, yet, why aren't we careful when our own indulgence affect the reputations of our other brothers/sisters? Remember the ruling (hukm) against those who slander against the honour of another brother/sister is indeed considered a grave oppression - a "defamation" - against them. And they would have a strong claim against those who wronged them by turning to Allah. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  38. 38. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  39. 39. “And [once again]: Why do you not say, whenever you hear such [a rumour], “It does not behove us to speak of this, O Thou who art limitless in Thy glory: this is an awesome calumny (BUH-TAA-NUN- ‘AZEEM)”? Allah admonishes you [hereby] lest you ever revert to the like of this [sin], if you are [truly] believers; for Allah makes [His] messages clear unto you - and Allah is allknowing, Wise!.” (Qur’an:an-Nur: 24: 16-18) All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  40. 40. “Verily, as for those who like [to hear] foul slander spread against [any of] those who have attained to faith, grievous suffering awaits them in this world and in the life to come: for Allah knows [the full truth], whereas you know [it] not.” (Qur’an: an-Nur: 24: 19) All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)

Nay, he shall be thrown into the Crusher. And what do you know what the Crusher is? It is the Fire kindled by Allah, the Fire that shall rise to the hearts (of criminals).

  47. 47. Many of us, shamelessly entertain the thought that we are perfect. Some even seek out Western motivational books & courses that promote enhancement of their 'super-ego'. Thus their attitude towards others will be affected by this delusion, accentuated by seeing the faults in others, not in themselves. Many of us may still be struggling with but still controlled by our 'nafs al-amaa-rah' (our commanding self), which makes us become pre-occupied with others to distract us from looking at what is in us. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  48. 48. Our hands are quick to point at others, yet we forget that, fingers in that same hand is in fact pointing back at us. We should reflect and ask ourselves: "Is this the behaviour and attitude of a Muslim?" are we not ashamed! – IT-TAQIL-LAAH! Remember what our Prophet s.a.w. said.

  51. 51. "O You Muslim (who claim yourself as one) with your mouth! But Faith (iiman) has not entered your hearts; do not cause annoyance towards other Muslims by making fun of them and searching for their faults. This is because whosoever likes to search for the faults of his Muslim brother, Allah in turn will search out his faults. When Allah searches out someone's faults, He will expose whatever secrets that the person has, even if it were (hidden) in his baggage." (Hadeeth) All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)

LESSONS FROM SURAH AL-HUJURAT “And know that Allah’s Messenger is among you: were he to comply with your inclinations in each and every case, you would be bound to come to harm [as a community]. But as it is, Allah has caused [your] faith to be dear to you, and has given it beauty in your hearts, and has made hateful to you all denial of the truth, and all iniquity, and all rebellion [against what is good]. Such indeed are they who follow the right course” (Qur’an: Hujurat: 49: 7) All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  55. 55. We ought to know better that as Muslims, we have the perfect example of our Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. He would never act based on unverified assertions, nor would he be inclined to people's opinion but he would always seek the inspirations and guidance of Allah s.w.t. : "And know that among you is Allah's Messenger: were he, in many matters, to follow your (wishes), ye would certainly suffer" All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
