Speaking truthfully BUT kindly & politely!!
Calling a person, whose father is a criminal, as ‘son/daughter of the criminal’ might be true but it is impolite way of speaking and we should avoid it. We should avoid speaking in a way, in which we ourselves, don’t like to hear from others.
Islam teaches us to respect our elders and be kind with young ones. We must respect our parents, even if they are not Muslims.
Criticising or finding faults in others is very easy (with the help of devils), but hiding faults and seeing goodness in others is very difficult to do.
Spreading or throwing dirt around, only makes our surrounding: dirty. Spreading depraved views in the society only makes our society: immoral. Our presence in the society should be spreading nice fragrance, not hatred.
Al-Qur’an [ al-Israa — 17:53 ]: “And tell My servants that they should speak (only) what is the best (Ahsan, kind). Surely Satan stirs up trouble among them. The fact is that Satan is an open enemy to mankind.”
[16:125-128] Invite all to the way of your Lord with wisdom and beautiful preaching. And argue with them in ways that are best and most gracious… And if you punish, let your punishment be proportional to the wrong that has been done to you. But if you show patience, that is indeed the best course. Be patient, for your patience is from God.
And do not grieve over them, or distress yourself because of their plots. For God is with those who restrain themselves, and those who do good.
[24:54] And so (O Prophet!) exhort them your task is only to exhort; you cannot compel them to believe.
[25:63] The worshipers of the Most Gracious are those who tread the earth gently, and when the ignorant speak to them, they only utter peace.
[7:199] You shall resort to pardon, advocate tolerance, and disregard the ignorant.
[14:24-27 ] “Have you not considered how Allah sets forth a parable of a good word (being) like a good tree, whose root is firm and whose branches are in heaven, Yielding its fruit in every season by the permission of its Lord? And Allah sets forth parables for men that they may be mindful. And the parable of an evil word is as an evil tree pulled up from the earth’s surface; it has no stability. Allah confirms those who believe with the sure word in this world’s life and in the hereafter, and Allah causes the unjust to go astray, and Allah does what He pleases.”
Dear Brother and Sisters,
Whenever some one attacks u or ur religion, Be patient and Polite. For God is with patient.. Cursing and swearing back never helps, rather it proves you hollow, illogical and frustrated! It’s the Noble attitude which wins in the end!
Be Kind and Gentle!
That’s the character of a true Muslim!!
May Allah guide all to true path!
