Bismillah ir-rahman ir-raheem
(In the name of God the most compassionate most merciful),


Lower your voice and talk moderately (31:19)
"Be moderate in your pace. And lower your voice, for the ugliest of all voices is certainly the braying of donkeys.”

••••••••••••

Don’t let hatred cause you to be unjust (6:108)
“O believers!˺ Do not insult what they invoke besides Allah or they will insult Allah spitefully out of ignorance. This is how We have made each people’s deeds appealing to them. Then to their Lord is their return, and He will inform them of what they used to do.

••••••••••••

Don’t ask to many favors from people (2:273)
"`Charity is˺ for the needy who are too engaged in the cause of Allah to move about in the land ˹for work˺. Those unfamiliar with their situation will think they are not in need ˹of charity˺ because they do not beg. You can recognize them by their appearance. They do not beg people persistently. Whatever you give in charity is certainly well known to Allah.

••••••••••••

Greet people when entering their home (24:27)
O believers! Do not enter any house other than your own until you have asked for permission and greeted its occupants. This is best for you, so perhaps you will be mindful.

••••••••••••

Be just, even against yourself and relatives (4:135)
"O believers! Stand firm for justice as witnesses for Allah even if it is against yourselves, your parents, or close relatives. Be they rich or poor, Allah is best to ensure their interests. So do not let your desires cause you to deviate ˹from justice˺. If you distort the testimony or refuse to give it, then ˹know that˺ Allah is certainly All-Aware of what you do.”

••••••••••••

Speak gently, even to leaders of disbelief (20:44)
"Speak to him gently, so perhaps he may be mindful ˹of Me˺ or fearful ˹of My punishment˺.”

••••••••••••

Don’t criticize small contributions of others (9:79)
"˹There are˺ those who slander ˹some of˺ the believers for donating liberally and mock others for giving only the little they can afford. Allah will throw their mockery back at them, and they will suffer a painful punishment."
