Sura Hujaraat (49) 10/08/2016


With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Sura 49

Suspicion and gossip is not the behaviour of the believer

12. O ye who believe! avoid suspicion As much (as possible): for suspicion In some cases is a sin: and spy not on Each other behind their backs. Would any of you like to eat the flesh of His dead brother? Nay, ye would abhor it…But fear Allah. for Allah is Oft-Returning, Most Merciful.

Allah continues refining the behaviour of the believers. We are told not to be suspicious of others as suspicion in some cases can be a sin. Gossiping is also condemned in this verse. We should put the best construction on anything we hear about others.

Cross reference:

24:12. why did not the believers – men and women – when ye heard of the affair,- put the best construction on it In their own minds and say, “This (charge) is an obvious lie” ?

Continues tomorrow…Insha Allah
Peace / Salaam
