The Madinan Society: A Tafsir of Surat al-Ḥujurat Part 5/12
Delivered by Shaykh Riyadh ul Haq on Friday 13th May 2016 at Al Kawthar Academy, Leicester (UK)
After the Prophet and his companions emigrated to Medina, Allah revealed laws with which Muslims must abide by so that they may live together peacefully. This Surat serves as a prime example of such intricate laws that detail not just how people should behave with one another, but how they should speak and think about each other.
Disagreements between believers are inevitable. Differences and arguments can happen between close family members, friends and business partners, but what should be done when these differences occur? How should we behave with one another in order to settle our differences and come to a mutual agreement?
This lecture highlights the stages of bringing about reconciliation between two parties and who this reconciliation should be done by. There are those God fearing men who can use kind words to dissolve any situation after many have failed before them. This talk emphasises the need for believers to act when two parties are in conflict, rather than idly sit back when injustice is taking place.
