WASTE OF MONEY

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan I Quranic Wisdom I P.61

There is a general tendency for those who earn money to believe that it is their own property. They feel that they can spend their money as they please without any restrictions from outside. This tendency was also prevalent in the Arab society. With this background, the Quran in chapter Al-A‘raf (The Heights) gives this general guidance:

DO NOT PROVOKE OTHERS

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan I Quranic Wisdom I P.56  

During the Prophet’s time, some of his Companions used objectionable language against the gods of the non-believers. This resulted in a reaction from the other party. In this situation, God Almighty gave an important piece of advice to the believers. This is recorded as follows in the chapter Al-Anam (The Cattle):

BLAME THYSELF

BLAME THYSELF

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan I Quranic Wisdom I P.55 

The Prophet of Islam and his Companions suffered defeat twice, at the Battle of Uhud (625 AD) and the Battle of Hunayn (630 AD). On the occasion of Uhud, they suffered total defeat and at Hunayn they suffered partial defeat.

ACTIONS MATTER

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | Quranic Wisdom 

At the time of the Prophet of Islam, there were certain people in Madinah who talked of the truth, yet they did nothing for its sake and used beautiful words to cover up their misdeeds. Exposing these people, the Quran says in chapter three:

“Those who exult in their misdeeds and love to be praised for what they have not done should not suppose that they are secure from punishment; they shall suffer a grievous punishment.”(3:188)
