Founder’s Corner: Behavior and Our Dealing

By Dr. Emdad Khan

Behavior and Our Dealing

We, as human beings, interact daily with different people. Some of the interactions are pleasurable but some are not. We all know, the best person is the one who is best in behaviour.

But sometimes, we find difficulty in dealing with some people. Our Creator has given us guidelines, how to deal in challenging situations.

In surah Al Furqan Ayah 63,


وَعِبَادُ ٱلرَّحْمَـٰنِ ٱلَّذِينَ يَمْشُونَ عَلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ هَوْنًۭا وَإِذَا خَاطَبَهُمُ ٱلْجَـٰهِلُونَ قَالُوا۟ سَلَـٰمًۭا ٦٣

The ˹true˺ servants of the Most Compassionate are those who walk on the earth humbly, and when the foolish address them ˹improperly˺, they only respond with peace.

Our Creator is providing guidance about our daily interactions:

  • We should be humble and modest in our movement and activities
  • When we meet/deal with ignorant or difficult persons, we should just listen quietly and say Salam, then leave them alone.

May Allah swt give us capacity to remember and deal properly with everyone all the time in a peaceful way. Let us be best in our dealing with others.

With Salaam and Regards
