Morals in Islam.
Punctuality includes being respectful of other people’s time. When one gives someone a time to meet or do something, then he/she should be prompt in fulfilling it.
The day of a Muslim is built around prayers which need to be performed at specific times,
and this gives a Muslim a fairly good practice to be punctual.
Being polite and respectful
💫To be one of those who are successful, Islam requires that each individual learns to obey the Creator and thus treat humankind, the environment, the believers, and ourselves with respect.
💫Respect involves staying completely away from the major sins of backbiting, lying, slander, and gossip.
💫Respect for humanity means staying away from sins that will sow discord among the people
and lead to destruction. Respect includes loving for our brothers and sisters what we love for ourselves.
Respect involves treating others the way we expect to be treated and the way we hope Allah will treat us –with compassion, love and mercy
🌟A Muslim who truly understands the teachings of his/her religion is gentle, friendly and likeable.
🌟He mixes with people and gets along with them.
🌟He understands that keeping in touch with people and earning their trust is ‘Muslim-like’.
Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, said:
“Shall I not tell you who among you is the most beloved to me and will be closest to me on the Day of Resurrection?”
He repeated it two or three times, and they said, ”Yes, O Messenger of Allah.“ He said: “Those of you who are the best in attitude and character.”
Self-control is a quality that is embedded in the religion of Islam. We are faced with choices
and temptations in every direction. We are asked to lower our gaze, to control our anger, and to consider our words before speaking. The fasting month of Ramadan is an exercise in self-control. We refrain from eating and drinking from dawn to sunset. We might be hungry and thirsty but we exercise self-control in order to please Allah and to build our
resilience. Following our own desires is not something that Islam encourages.
“…they only follow their own lusts. And who is more astray than one who follows his own lusts, without guidance from Allah?” (Quran 28:50)
Being helpful and cooperative
Humankind cannot live except by cooperating with others.
We need one another.
🌼 By cooperating life continues smoothly; but if there is no cooperation, life will come to a standstill.
🌸Islam calls for cooperation and urges the Muslims to cooperate in order to retain their unity.
Allah says in Quran
“Help you one another in righteousness and piety, but do not help one another in sin and transgression.” (Quran 5:2)
Empathy is the ability to recognize, understand and share the feelings of others.
🤔 Is empathy encouraged in Islam❓
Absolutely! Consider this
verse about our Prophet Muhammad:
“There has certainly come to you a Messenger from among
yourselves. Grievous to him is what you suffer; (he is) concerned over you and to the believers is kind and merciful.” (Quran 9:128)
The Prophet himself also encouraged us to feel empathy for one another, he said:
“The believers in their mutual kindness, compassion and sympathy are just like one body. When one of the limbs suffers, the whole body responds to it with wakefulness and Fever.”
A Muslim is always grateful to Allah for all His countless blessings. 💜
There are many ways to
express gratitude to Him.
🌸The first and foremost way is to worship Him in the manner that He has prescribed.
The Five Pillars of Islam were ordained upon us by Allah and they guide us to worship Him easily.
🌸The believer also expresses gratitude by giving charity. Allah says,
“Is there any reward for good other than good?” (Quran 55:60)
