Lessons From Surah Al-Hujurat, Being Calm and Not Impulsive

  • It is an obligation upon every believer (Mukmin) to reflect upon the verses of the Quran. The Quran is not supposedly meant to be read without understanding the objectives of every command, prohibitions, reminders, or stories contained within.

  • Hence, the khutbahs throughout the month of March will call upon us to reflect on several important lessons derived from a surah in the Quran. The surah in mention, is surah Al-Hujarat.

  • A verse from surah Al-Hujurat reminds us to be honest and responsible when conveying news, it also serves as a guideline to how one should react upon receiving information that has not been verified and authenticated.
