Episode Notes

Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan centers his lecture around the 135th Ayah of Surah Al Nisa that deals with the subject of justice. One of the fruits that grow from the perfection of Iman is justice.

‘O you who have believed, be persistently standing firm in justice, witnesses for Allah, even if it be against yourselves or parents and relatives. Whether one is rich or poor, Allah is more worthy of both. So follow not [personal] inclination, lest you not be just. And if you distort [your testimony] or refuse [to give it], then indeed Allah is ever, with what you do, Acquainted.”

Dealing with family can be really testing especially when we are shut down every time we speak up. Speaking the truth should not be a slave of seniority and stature. The truth is the truth no matter how bitter it is and how unpleasant it may be.

Justice in Islam, doing your best to avoid injustice, testifying for the love of Allah, sacrifice your feelings for what is right. These are acts that are hard to follow if one is attached incessantly to this dunya. Once we are sure that we want to be on the road to Akhirah and that the reward is Jannah, justice will be easy to handle . It helps us focus on what’s wrong and stand up for justice.
