Islam on Bad Conduct

MV: This post is from the book Islam Beliefs and Teachings by Ghulam Sarwar. This post discusses about 10 things that are considered bad in Islam. Hadiths are given to show what and why it is bad. To preform these tasks will only bring you treachery.

Lying- as you all know is not telling the truth. The Hadiths state: “Woe to him who tells lies to make people laugh! Woe to him! Woe to him!” (Ahmad, at-Tirmidhi) “It is great treachery that you tell your brother something accepts as truth from you, but you are lying” (Abu Dawud)

Backbiting- is bassically talking bad about someone without them around. Hadith say: “If anybody pledges to me that he will keep his tongue under control, guard his chastity, will not speak ill of others not indulge in slander and backbiting and refrain from adultery and similar sins, I shall assure him of Paradise.” (al- Bukahri)

Suspicion – is to be a suspect or accused of doing something. A Hadith states: “Beware of suspicion, for Suspicion may be based on false information, do not spy on another, do not disclose others’ hidden defects.” (al – Bukhari)

Jealousy – is to be envious. Hadiths say: “Keep away from jealousy for as fire burns wood, so jealousy consumes good actions.” (Abu Dawud)                                                    “Nothing is more atrocious than injuring unjustly a Muslim’s reputation.” (at- Tirmidhi)

Anger – is an emotion that is hard to control and is known as a bad side of a person. Hadiths say: “He is not strong who throws down another, but he is who controls his anger.” (al – Bukahri, Muslim)                                                                                                     “If anger rouses anyone, he should sit down and if that does not help, he should lie down.” (at-Tirmidhi)

Pride- is to be proud. A Hadith says: “If anyone has got an atom of pride in his heart, he will not enter Paradise” (al-Bukhari)

Abuse – is to hurt someone physically or mentally. One Hadith states: “Abusting a Muslim is sinful and killing him is disbelief (kufr).: (al- Bukhari, Muslim)

Hypocrisy – is trying to have public importance by lying. A Hadith says: “The signs of the hypocrite are three: When he speaks, he lies; when he promises, he breaks it; when any trust is kept with him, he misuses it.” (al- Bukhari)

Taunting – is to tease, Hadiths say: “A believer neither taunts, not curses not speaks foul not chats not babbles.” (at Tirmidhi)”                                                                              “Do not rejoice over the distress of a brother Muslim for Allah may receive his distress and put you in his position.” (at- Tirmidhi)

Sickness of Heart – a Hadith states: “Beware, in everybody, there is a piece of flesh. if it is healthy, the whole body is sick. Beware, it is the heart.” (al – Bukhari, Muslim)”
