Importance of Morals and Ethics In Deen

The best thing about Islam is the morals and ethics that we should follow to be good muslims. To leave a good impression on others one must speak polite and balanced. To utter harsh words in harsh tone ruin the image of the good personality.

So, when a person is known as liar, an ill mannered and the one who speaks too much and wastes time, even his good looks and outer personality goes into dust. Therefore, ALLAH swt has told us to be careful in speech and to use those words that do not seem harsh and do not leave a bad impression on others.

We find many commands in Quran hat talk about what to avoid while speaking.

ALLAH swt says in Holy Quran:  3:17
“Those who show patience, Firmness and self-control; who are true (in word and deed); who worship devoutly; who spend (in the way of God); and who pray for forgiveness in the early hours of the morning”
IN THE NOBEL VERSE quoted above, ALLAH swt talks about the characteristics of the pious men of ALLAH. And one of the characteristics mentioned is the truthfulness of the speech and acts.

We are commanded to speak justly with everyone in every matter no matter how much an issue is serious and our own relation is at stake.

In verse 2:83, ALLAH swt says:
“And remember We took a covenant from the Children of Israel (to this effect): Worship none but God; treat with kindness your parents and kindred, and orphans and those in need; speak fair to the people; be steadfast in prayer; and practise regular charity. Then did ye turn back, except a few among you, and ye backslide (even now).”
Here speaking fair means to speak politely and I kind way so that people who need our help or who depend on us do not get offended, what else could be the best thing if not a word of kindness!

We should better talk polite because even if with good intension we say a word in a bitter way, shaitan gets a chance to sow the seed of hatred between the relations.

In verse 23:3
“Who avoid vain talk;”
Talking uselessly and too much irritates and people avoid listening to such a person even if he wants to speak good. Backbiting is a sin and later in the same verse ALLAH swt has compared backbiting with eating flesh of a dead person, which indeed is filthy. If one claims something, he should back it with sound proofs otherwise that will be a plain lie and allegation.

To slander others without proof in front of other is a sin.
