Sura Saff (61) 23/10/2016


With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Sura 61 (Saff)

Practice what you preach

Verses 2 and 3

61.2 O ye who believe! Why say ye that which ye do not?
61.3 Grievously odious is it in the sight of Allah that ye say that which ye do not.

These two verses severely condemn saying one thing and doing another: i.e. breaking one’s promise, lying, and showing oneself to be different from what one really is. These are things that are incompatible with faith and which are signs of hypocrisy.

Cross reference

2.44 Do ye enjoin right conduct on the people, and forget (To practise it) yourselves, and yet ye study the Scripture? Will ye not understand?
