Good Manners Apply to All

The Quran says:

‘speak good to people.’

It doesn’t say:

‘speak good only to Muslims.’

Qurani Ayat on Whatsapp

Assalamualikum everyone,

Can I have a minute of your important time? If yes, then continue reading. 

There is a message floating around the network for quite a time, especially on whatsapp. You probably have seen it in form of text or video.

That message is about: Stoppage of Qurani Ayat on Whatsapp.

Why, they say. Well, because they get deleted and it is in the signs of the ‘Judgement Day’ that the believers will themselves delete the Qur’an.

That’s what they are saying in the message. The part about deleting of Qur’an by the hands of believers themselves and its being the sign of the Judgement Day is authentic. But the way they are conveying is not.

Deleting of Qur’an is not that easy. Its Allah’s book. He has taken the responsibility of its protection.

I have done some research on this, consulted a few scholars, just to get a clear picture on this misconception. Think about it, if you won’t share it, then in a way, YOU ARE DELETING IT.

We share to spread awareness, as a reminder, we share, because we want to reach out to as many people as possible. Right? And as we spend most of our time with our devices, what better way to reach out than this.

When we delete the Qurani Ayat from our phones, that is not out of disgrace. If you are doing it out of disgrace then that can be held against you otherwise you are okay. You see, once the message is conveyed, once we have it memorized, we move it to another place or even if we simply delete it, we are not doing it out of disgrace. And that is nothing like deleting Qur’an.

Don’t confuse yourself. First get a better understanding of things, consult, do researches and then spread it. We have already too many false facts spread on the net, I think we can do without more.

Thank you for your time.

Stay blessed.

Islam, Veiling and Society

Isn’t it funny how the society says, “Do not judge a book by its cover.” But then it turns and go about judging the girls/women in cover.

What’s wrong with this, if a lady covers herself with a decent dressing or a dupatta or a scarf or hijabs and gowns or niqab? Huh?

Our religion, Islam, has a dress code for females.

And say to the believing women that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; that they should not display their beauty and ornaments except what (must ordinarily) appear thereof; that they should draw their khimār over their bosoms and not display their beauty except to their husbands, their fathers, their husband’s fathers, their sons, their husbands’ sons, their brothers or their brothers’ sons, or their sisters’ sons, or their women (friends), or the slaves whom their right hands possess, or male servants free of physical needs, or small children who have no sense of the shame of sex; and that they should not strike their feet in order to draw attention to their hidden ornaments.

(Surah An-Nur [24:31])

Even with this knowledge, our people are so naive, so judgemental. Some are like, “Why she covers herself? Does she have something to hide?” While some go by, “When you have no flaw, why cover? Why not show your beauty to the world?”

I have a question for all those people,“Have you seen that food which is placed uncovered? All the flies, dirt, germs and numerous other filthy things find an opening to it.  Will you take a bite/sip knowing it has been exposed to the filthiness? Not without a doubt. Eventually, you throw it away. What a waste! But think, if you would have covered it, not because it has some flaw but to protect it from all that filthiness, would that have been better?

Similarly, a female covers herself, not because she has a flaw to hide but because it is her IDENTITY! She is protecting herself from every random/filthy eye to sit on her. She is displaying her faith instead of her body. Just tell me what is wrong with that?”

If a woman is free to show her body then why is she judged when she chooses to cover it?

I agree there are some who uses the ‘covering‘ for ‘hiding‘ purposes but who are you to judge? Are you perfect? I know you are not. Because we are humans and we are not suppose to be perfect. But one should always keep trying to be close to it. That’s why if someone decides to edge towards being better, don’t create hurdles in their path instead be appreciative. May Allah have mercy upon you and all of us. (Ameen)

Classy is when a woman has everything to flaunt but chooses not to show it.

May Allah help all of us to make ourselves a better person than we were yesterday. (Ameen)
