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


Don't turn your cheek away from people in arrogance (31:18)
"And do not turn your nose up to people, nor walk pridefully upon the earth. Surely Allah does not like whoever is arrogant, boastful.”

••••••••••••

Forgive others as you would like Allah to forgive you (24:22)
“Do not let the people of virtue and affluence among you swear to suspend donations to their relatives, the needy, and the emigrants in the cause of Allah. Let them pardon and forgive. Do you not love to be forgiven by Allah? And Allah is All-Forgiving, Most Merciful.”

••••••••••••

Seek Prophets permission when leaving his gathering (24:62)
"The ˹true˺ believers are only those who believe in Allah and His Messenger, and when they are with him on a public matter, they do not leave without his permission. Indeed, those who ask your permission ˹O Prophet˺ are the ones who ˹truly˺ believe in Allah and His Messenger. So when they ask your permission for a private matter, grant permission to whoever you wish and ask Allah’s forgiveness for them. Surely Allah is All-Forgiving, Most Merciful.”

••••••••••••

Don’t hold secret meetings for sin, rather do so for piety (58:9)
“O believers! When you converse privately, let it not be for sin, aggression, or disobedience to the Messenger, but let it be for goodness and righteousness. And fear Allah, to Whom you will ˹all˺ be gathered.”

••••••••••••

Don't order others to do good while forgetting it yourself (2:44)
"Do you preach righteousness and fail to practice it yourselves, although you read the Scripture? Do you not understand?”

••••••••••••

Be patient with your teacher and follow his instructions (18:67-69)
"He said, “You certainly cannot be patient ˹enough˺ with me. And how can you be patient with what is beyond your ˹realm of˺ knowledge? Moses assured ˹him˺, “You will find me patient, Allah willing, and I will not disobey any of your orders.”

••••••••••••

If unable to help a needy person, at least speak nice words (17:28)
"But if you must turn them down ˹because you lack the means to give˺—while hoping to receive your Lord’s bounty—then ˹at least˺ give them a kind word."
