One of the main objectives of the Qur’an is to outline the ethics and conduct that are befitting of the believer.
Surah al-Hujurat is just that. Beginning with what proper conduct before Allah is, the Surah goes on to tell us of the rank and wisdom of the Messenger of Allah ﷺ; how believers should be towards him ﷺ; and the immense blessings of faith, guidance, and obedience.
The focus of the Surah then shifts to our conduct with our fellow brothers and sisters. We learn to confirm what we hear before judging and acting, and how to be just and merciful to believers in the event of a dispute. The surah also addresses mockery, name-calling, spying, and backbiting due to their extremely detrimental effects on our relations.
Join Shaykh Hamzah Imtiaz this Ramadan as he teaches us the meanings and lessons of Surah al-Hujurat in a comprehensive and relatable manner! Expect this class to leave you with a refreshed view on ethics and a clear guidebook on the conduct of the believer with Allah ﷻ, his messenger ﷺ and fellow believers!
