Islamic Ethics

ABOUT ETIQUETTE:

 

God’s Messenger, Muhammad (P.B.U.H) has recommended creation points of etiquette; the following are but few:

 

یُسَلمُ الصغیرُ علی الکَبیرِ  وَ المارٌّ علی القائدِ وَ القَلیلُ علی الکَثیرِ

 

“THE YOUNGER PERSON OUGHT TO SALUTE THE OLDER PERSON, AND HE WHO IS WALKING OUGHT TO SALUTE HE WHO IS SITTING, AND THE SMALLER GROUP OUGHT TO SALUTE THE LARGER GROUP.”

 

لیس منا من لم یرحم صغیرنا و لم یوقر کبیرنا

 

“HE IS NOT ONE OF US, HE WHO DOES NOT SHOW KINDNESS TO OUR YOUNG ONES AND RESOECT TO OUR OLDER ONES.”

 

العائدُ فی هِبَثِهِ کالعائِدِ فی قَیئِهِ

 

“HE WHO TAKES BACK HIS GIFT, IS LIKE SOMEONE WHO RETURNS TO HIS VOMIT.”

 

للمسلم علی المسلم ست بالمعروف: یسلم علیه اذا لقیه و یحیبه اذا دعاء و یشمته اذا عطس ویعوده اذا مرض یتبع جنازته اذا مات و یحب له ما یحب لنفسه

 

“A MUSLIM OWES TO A FELLOW MUSLIM SIX GOOD POINTS: HE SHOULD SALUTE HIM WHEN HE SEES HIM; SHOULD ACCEPT (INVITATION) WHEN HE INVITES HIM; SHOULD PRAY FOR HIM WHEN HE SNEEZES; HE SHOULD PAY A VISIT TO HIM WHEN HE FALLS SICK; HE SHOULD HIS FUNERAL WHEN HE DIES; AND HE SHOULD LOVE FOR HIM THE THINGS HE LOVES FOR HIMSELF.”

 

“IT IS THE SUNNAH THAT A MAN SHOULD ACCOMPANY HIS GUEST TO THE DOOR OF THE HOUSE.”

 

“ABU HURAIRAH RELATES THAT THE HOLY PROPHET NEVER SPOKE ILL OF A MEAL; IF HE LIKED IT HE ATE IT; AND IF DID LIKE IT HE LEFT IT UNTOUCHED.”

 

“IT IS NOT RIGHT FOR A GUEST TO STAY FOR SO LONG AS TO CAUSE INCONVENIENCE TO HIS HOST.”

 

“WHEN PROPHET MUHAMMAD USED TO EAT IN COMPANY, HE USED TO EAT TO THE LAST, AND DID NOT LEAVE OFF BEFORE OTHERS.”
