“When a glass is broken, the sound of breaking disappears immediately where as the glass pieces are scattered over the ground hurting whoever walks over it.
Similarly, when you say something that hurts people emotions and feelings, the voice disappears immediately but the hearts remains in pain for long.”
Therefore, don’t say except good and remember always the nine advices and prohibitions that Allah All Mighty gave us in Surath Al Hujuraat (The Sura of Islamic Manners) before you say something to anyone:
“Fa Tabyano”: Investigate: if you received an information lest you harm people out of ignorance.
2 – فأصلحوا:
“Fa Asliho” Make settlement: between your brothers as believers are brothers.
“Wa Aqsito”: Act justly: whenever there is a dispute try for settlement and act justly among both parties as Allah loves who acts justly.
4 – لا يسخر:
“La Yaskhar”: don’t ridicule: people perhaps they may be better than you to Allah.
5 – ولا تلمزوا:
“Wa La Talmizo”: Do not insult: one another.
“Wa La Tanabazu”: Do not call offensive nicknames each other.
7- اجتنبوا كثيرا من الظن:
“Ijtanibu Kaseeran min AlZan” Avoid negative assumptions, indeed some of the assumptions are sin.
8 – ولا تجسسوا:
“Wa La Tajsasu” and don’t spy on each other.
9- ولا يغتب بعضكم بعضا:
“Wa La Yagtab”: Do not backbite each other: as its a major sin and like eating your dead brother’s flesh.
