Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan shares a few lessons and reflections from just one Ayah of Surah An-Nisa which is a very comprehensive and very powerful Ayat in the life of a Muslim. It’s a Madani Surah, which means that the audience is predominantly the Muslim himself as opposed to a Makki Surah where the predominant and primary audiences are non-Muslims. But in the Madani Qur’an, the majority of the people that were listening were the Muslims themselves.
The ayats of surah An Nisa talk about various points such as the Commands that are supposed to be applied such as Allah is commanding us that we should have Taqwa. Also, the concept and importance of Amanah is elaborated upon.
The majority of the lecture delves on the importance of sound and impeccable judgment and how it is paramount for a Muslim to be a sound judge between people in the face of a dispute or altercation.
“Indeed, Allah commands you to render trusts to whom they are due and when you judge between people to judge with justice. Excellent is that which Allah instructs you. Indeed, Allah is ever Hearing and Seeing.”
[Surah An Nisa , verse 58]
This implies that we should make fair decisions keeping the Shariah in mind and always remember that Allah is always Listening and always Watching.
