Allah (swt) described Muhammad (pbuh) saying [We have not sent you except as a mercy to the worlds] (21:107). Islam by its beliefs (‘Aqidah), legislature (Shari’ah), and rituals (Ibadah) aims at perfecting the morals, enhancing the character, and upgrading the behavior with self and others on both the individual and social levels. There is an inseparable relationship between creed and moral system so our dealings with people is a reflection to our hidden beliefs. Allah set forth rules and regulations (Shari’ah) to guarantee the healthy living environment for everyone. Islamic civilization is a clear witness on that.
Mufti Nazim Mangera discusses the important topic of domestic violence from multiple Islamic sources. Everyone needs to hear this lecture. In it, he also clarifies some misconceptions about a Quranic verse which is misinterpreted by some Muslims. Also, he strongly encourages the listeners to never hit their wife. The best of us are those who will NEVER hit their wife.
Allah (SWT) says in the Holy Qur’an (68:4); “And verily you (Oh Muhammad) are on an exalted standard of character”. The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said, “I was sent to perfect and complete the good character”. In a time when the character and behavior of only a few ‘Muslims’ is actually destroying the image of the religion of Islam and it’s followers, it is vital as Muslims to look to the example of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and adopt it into our lives, for it was through his good manners and character that many reverted to Islam.
