In this intense and thought-provoking lecture, Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan shares an important reminder for ourselves and that which is often taken for granted.
He tells us that in the Qur’an, after Allah telling us that we as a Muslim Ummah are brothers and behave sensibly so, the first instruction given to us succeeding that is that we as Muslims of one class and section of people should not make fun of the other section of the community. There are many dimensions of making fun and Ustadh deals with each of them perfectly.
When we make fun of someone thinking someone is your subordinate to you or make someone feel inferior, we are deviating from Islam and invite the wrath of Allah. One of the places that this behavior comes from is our notion of earning far superiorly than the rest.
