Surah Bani Isra’il (17) 21/09/2015


With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Sura 17 (Bani-Isra’il)

Verse 53: Say to My servants that they should (only) say those things that are best: for Satan sows dissensions among them: For Satan is to man an avowed enemy.

A very simple but highly important teaching. Words do not appear harmful like a physical weapon but in reality it is a weapon that can destroy homes, families, communities and even the Ummah. These emotional scars can last generations. The lesson is not merely to say what is good but rather what is best. Best in truthfulness, Best in timing and Best in manner.

Most importantly, our speech can be a weapon of Satan – a very powerful one to create division. Think carefully and speak what is best!
