The Madinan Society: A Tafsir of Surat al-Ḥujurat Part 8/12
Delivered by Shaykh Riyadh ul Haq on Friday 23rd September 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.
This lesson discusses the sins of the tongue and their severity. It is common knowledge that physically assaulting a person is illegal, yet we have no law asking us to guard our tongue. Many of our concepts of sin are formulated through the norms in society rather than from the Qur’an and Sunnah.
This lesson details the sins of the tongue and what steps we can take to control this boneless wonder.
