Lesson 27: "O you who believe! Let not a group scoff at another group"
   
 
 
In the Name of Allah, The Most Gracious, Most Merciful  
 
Dear noble brothers, we are discussing a new lesson of this new series in which we will ponder over some Noble Ayaat starting with: "O you who believe"
Today, we will reflect upon the following Noble Ayah in which Allah the Almighty says:

(O you who believe! Let not a group scoff at another group, it may be that the latter are better than the former; nor let (some) women scoff at other women, it may be that the latter are better than the former, nor defame one another, nor insult one another by nicknames. How bad is it, to insult one's brother after having Faith [i.e. to call your Muslim brother (a faithful believer) as: "O sinner", or "O wicked", etc.]. And whosoever does not repent, then such are indeed Zalimun (wrong-doers, etc.).)

[Surat Al-Hujurat, 11]

Dear brothers, the criteria for superiority between people in the Sight of Allah the Almighty are quite different from those that people use, and this huge difference between them is the root cause of many psychological illnesses such as mockery, haughtiness, arrogance, backbiting, and gossip, etc.
So, the criteria for superiority between people in the Noble Quran are totally different from the criteria that people adopt; the criteria which are mentioned in the Noble Quran are seeking Islamic knowledge and performing righteous deeds. This fact indicates that these two factors elevate your rank in the Sight of Allah the Almighty, whereas people's criteria for superiority are totally different; people greatly admire wealthy and powerful people and hold them in high esteem.
Consequently, true heroism, intelligence and success is to adopt the same criteria for superiority between people which are mentioned in the Noble Quran.
