Arguments, quarrels, fights, bullying, mocking and bad conduct have become common today among Muslims. Muslims seem to be fighting over just about everything, especially on social media. Disputes and arguments are detrimental and weaken the resolve of a believer.
Time is the most valuable capital of a man. There can be no price that can be attached to time. In Surah Al-Asr, Allah Ta'ala takes an oath on time, “By time! Verily man is in loss.” This verse implies that those who do not value time are in a state of loss and destruction.
Islam strongly advocates the practice of mashwara (mutual consultation) in matters of importance such as domestic, private, marital, financial, political, etc. Mashwara and consultation is a meritorious practice of great benefit that is encouraged by the Noble Quran and Ahadith.
Hazrat Ayesha (Radiyallahu Anha) narrates that she heard Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) saying, “Verily a believer can obtain the rank of a person who stands in Ibadat (devotion) at night and fasts during the day through good conduct.” (Abu Dawood)
Harbouring suspicion and ill-thoughts about others is a major sin which is the root cause of many other vices that become the cause of division and disunity in society. Suspicion and ill-thoughts that are not supressed and curbed can lead to jealousy, hatred, gossip, slander, revenge and other major vices. This in turn leads to breakdown in marriages, family ties and social order.
