What Does Islam Teach On Manners And Dealing With Others?

Posted on: September 28, 2015


SALAAM

Human relations, interpersonal relations take up a wide field.  It encompasses all of the relationships among human beings.

Islam places great emphasis on manners and on the proper way to deal with others, whether they are Muslims or not. Relations between people are very important in Islam, and maintaining good relations with others should be a main priority of a practicing Muslim. In fact, Islam teaches that Prophet Mohammad (p.b.u.h) said: “I have been sent to perfect the best of manners”. He summarized the goal of his entire message into the perfection of the best of manners. The following is just a sample of some of the teachings of Islam regarding manners and relationships with others.

Smiling: Islam even goes to the extent of rewarding Muslims for smiling in the face of others! Smiling when others look at you is regarded as a form of charity for which Muslims get rewarded. This is why Muslims usually smile and shake hands when they meet, and they hug if they have not seen one another for a long time. Muslims are also instructed to greet each other when they see each other with the best possible greeting.

Friendship: Islam takes friendship to a higher level, referring to Muslims as brothers and sisters, and expecting them to treat each other as such. A Muslim is expected to wish for others that which they wish for themselves. Also, a Muslim is expected to give honest advice to friends and to be there for them and help them whenever possible. Muslims are forbidden from abandoning or boycotting a friend with whom they have had a disagreement for more than three days. After the three days, they are expected to forgive their friend and resume the friendship.

Greeting with salaam is different from other greetings such as “good morning” or “good day.”  The word salaam has a connection with faith. When we greet a person as “As-salaamu alaikum,” we tell him “May you be in paradise.”  It has such an inclusive meaning: “I wish you peace and tranquility in this life.  May your body be healthy and free of pains and discomfort?  May Almighty Allah place you to the abode May Almighty Allah provide us with the means to adorn ourselves with the manners of the Prophet.  May He keep us observant of these principles in our interactions within our family, with our relatives, with our neighbors, friends and with our brothers and sisters in Islam, in our business, and in our social life!
May He grant you His consent, happiness in this life and in the hereafter!  May he place you among those whom are honored by His Beauty in His Paradise!  May He reward you with the best of the rewards.

May Allah be pleased with you! Amen

Thank you for sharing this insight into a culture that is a mystery to many, and something fearful to those whose only ‘encounter’ with it is news reports about terrorists, who may or may not be actual muslims.

you are right, negativity is all around us killing us like poison. Every nation every religion every cast creed have goodness and preach kindness sharing but the evil factor misguides and destroys peace. I wish peace and blessings

They preach kindness, sharing and the 10 commandments, then turn around and wage war on those who do not believe exactly the way they do, instead of find common ground. IMHO, this is a very sad way for religions to present themselves. And I am not just thinking about jihads, I am thinking about the crusades and many other historic events, too.

my dear friend you are not entirely wrong because you have seen/learnt the side of Islam which does not belong to us. Islam as the name suggest, is the religion of peace and harmony; we, since last 14 centuries, have not fought a war without a reason. and the reason was not to conquer land or nations, but to neutralize threats and getting rid of rulers who were damaging the land and were hard with their nations. There is always a good number of non muslims living peacefully in 100% muslim countries. Pakistan, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Egypt, the list goes on and you can search the net for the verification of the large number of non-muslim community lives there. and not only they are free to live but also to practice their own religion as per their free will. If Islam was a religion based on war, terror and genocide of non-muslims, all these countries would not have churches, temples and other holy places of different believers. Just to add a bit, Sikh religion’s biggist and the most holiest place is located in Lahore, Pakistan (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nankana_Sahib) hundreds of thousands of people from around the globe visit there every year with peace and harmony extended by their muslim brothers and sisters.

Yes, the extremist who is killing people in the name of islam or causing discomfort for the world is not among us. He doesn’t have any religion or any base to stand on.

The occupation of Makkah was the biggest and most important occupation in the history of Islam, it was surrounded by non muslims but when Prophet Mohammed (P.B.U.H) entered Makkah; he declared peace and mercy for all he said;

“Even he Who enters the house of Abu Sufyan will be safe, He who lays down arms will be safe, He who locks his door will be safe”.[7]

Then Muhammad turning to the people said:

“O Quraish, what do you think of the treatment that I should accord you?”

And they said, “Mercy, O Prophet of ALLAH. We expect nothing but good from you.”

Thereupon Muhammad declared

“I speak to you in the same words as Yūsuf spoke to his brothers. This day there is no reproof against you; Go your way, for you are free.” Muhammad’s prestige grew after the surrender of the Meccans. Emissaries from all over Arabia came to Medina to accept him.

I wish there were more sharing of what is within each faith that is good. Perhaps if we did more of this we could begin to find the common ground we need to make peace.
