Being Just to Ourselves

  • In the past weeks, we discussed the need to be fair to others and all of Allah’s creations, and not to oppress others. We also should not forget that we should not be unjust towards ourselves.
  • According to scholars of tafsir, such as Imam Ibn Kathir and Imam Al-Tabari, “to wrong ourselves” means to disobey Allah, and to “not fulfil the rights and responsibilities made obligatory upon him.”
  • Hence, let us reflect upon our lives thoroughly. Let us ensure that we are just to ourselves, our families, other creations and most importantly, to Allah s.w.t.
