*BE THE BEST.*
*Our beloved prophet Muhammad Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam is the model for
us to imitate. Any ideology and practice that is away from the sunnah is
away from Allah Ta`ala`s rahmah and mercy. And on the other hand anyone
mimicking the sunnah wherever in the world is well blessed with the divine
love, appreciation and forgiveness. This is a law that will endure forever.*
قُلْ إِنْ كُنْتُمْ تُحِبُّونَ اللَّهَ فَاتَّبِعُونِي يُحْبِبْكُمُ اللَّهُ
وَيَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ ذُنُوبَكُمْ وَاللَّهُ غَفُورٌ رَحِيمٌ [آل عمران : 31]
*Allah Ta`ala says: ‘’Say O Muhammad: If you really love Allah, then follow
me, and Allah shall love you and also will forgive your sins. Allah is Most
Forgiving, Very Merciful.’’(3:31)*
*Vulgarism, ugly words, blasphemy, character assassination are not from
sunnah. What is from sunnah is to elaborate, correct and reinstate with
appropriate decent words, and then presenting the subject with clear cut
proofs.*
*Hazrat Abu Bakr r.a. did not rebuke Umar r.a.`s mistake with vulgarity and
sarcastism. But rather convinced him and other sahabahs that Rasouloullah
Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam did in fact died and proved it from Quranic
verses. Vulgarity and brutality does not take an iota of sunnah:*
صحيح البخاري - ()
عن مسروق قال كنا جلوسا مع عبد الله بن عمرو يحدثنا
إذ قال لم يكن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم فاحشا ولا متفحشا وإنه كان يقول
إن خياركم أحاسنكم أخلاقا
*Hazrat Abdullah Ibn Amr r.a. said: ‘’The beloved prophet Swalallahou
`Alaihi Wasallam was not vulgar nor was he forcefully trying to be a
vulgar. He used to say: The best amongst you is the one who show best
character.’’(Bukhari)*
ادْفَعْ بِالَّتِي هِيَ أحْسَنُ السَّيِّئَةَ
*Allah Ta’ala expressly recommend us to use the best of means, the best of
words and the best of plans in annihilating evil.(Surah 23:verse 96)*
*God told Moses and Haroon a.s. to speak softly to Pharaoh, although the
latter was a tyrant criminal:*
فَقُولا لَهُ قَوْلًا لَيِّنًا لَعَلَّهُ يَتَذَكَّرُ أوْ يَخْشى
“*Address him softly so that he may take heed and be fearsome.”(20:44)*
*The objective of da’wat is to drive towards the right path. And this is
not achieved by vulgarity or harsh words. Rather it creates a repulsive
reaction to the addressee.”*
ولَوْ كُنْتَ فَظًّا غَلِيظَ القَلْبِ لانْفَضُّوا مِن حَوْلِكَ
“*If you would be harsh, hard hearted then people will distant themselves
from you.”(3:159)*
*So, soften yourself and you would be more approachable and then you would
benefit people more by your da’wat towards the deen of Allah.*
*Finally note that you cannot be the best if you are using vulgarity, harsh
words and you character assassinate others in your expressions.*
*Because Rasouloullah Swalallahou Alaihi Wasallam said: “To swear at a
muslim is openly sinning/fisq. And to kill him is nearly kufr.”Sahih Muslim*

المُسْلِمِ فُسُوقٌ وقِتالُهُ كُفْرٌ
صحيح مسلم
