As Muslims we need to be steadfast in performing the obligatory acts of worship and fulfilling the Rights of Allah but we also need to be equally careful in our dealings with others, in order that we demonstrate the best of manners and morals in how we interact with our Muslim brothers and sisters, and non-Muslims.
The Messenger of Allah (salAllahu alayhi-wasallam) said: “Do you know who is bankrupt? They said ‘the bankrupt amongst us is one who has neither money with him nor any property.’ He said, ‘the real bankrupt of my Ummah would be the one who would come on the Day of Resurrection with salat, sawm, and sadaqah, (but he will find himself bankrupt on that day as he will have exhausted the funds of virtues) because he has wronged others, he has defamed and slandered others, unlawfully taken the wealth of others, shed the blood of others, and beat others; so his virtuous deeds will be credited to the account of those who suffered his hands. If his good deeds fall short to clear the account, their sins would be entered in his account and he would be thrown in the fire.” [Sahih Muslim]
Often we hear the phrase ‘don’t judge Islam by Muslims, judge Islam by Islam.’ How sad is this statement, that Islam cannot be seen in the behaviour of Muslims. Islam should not just be seen just in the knowledge (the Qur’an and hadith) but Islam should be evident and alive in our Actions.
