In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful

SECTION: 1
O believers! Do not put yourselves ahead of Allah and His Rasool. Fear Allah; surely Allah hears all and knows all.[1] O believers! Do not raise your voices above the voice of the Prophet, nor speak aloud when talking to him as you speak aloud to one another, lest your deeds should come to nothing while you do not even perceive it.[2] Those who lower their voices and speak softly in the presence of Allah’s Rasool are the ones whose hearts Allah has tested for piety; they shall have forgiveness and a great reward.[3] Those who call out to you, O Muhammad, from outside the private apartments, most of them lack common sense.[4] If only they had patience until you could come out to them, it would certainly be better for them. Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.[5] O believers, if an evildoer comes to you with some news, verify it (investigate to ascertain the truth), lest you should harm others unwittingly and then regret what you have done.[6] And know that Allah’s Rasool is among you. If he were to follow you in most affairs, you would certainly be in trouble. Allah has endeared this faith to you and beautified it in your hearts, making unbelief, wrongdoing, and disobedience abhorrent to you. It is they who are rightly guided[7] through Allah’s grace and blessing. Allah is Knowledgeable, Wise.[8] If two parties among the believers fall into mutual fighting, make peace between them. Then if one of them transgresses against the other, fight the one who has transgressed until he returns to the commands of Allah. Then, if he returns, make peace between them with justice and be fair; for Allah loves those who are fair and just.[9] The believers are brothers to one another, therefore, make reconciliation between your brothers and fear Allah, so that you may be shown mercy.[10]

49:[1-10]


Allah's commandment to lower one's voice in the presence of the Prophet




Make peace between the believers if they fall into fighting among themselves

SECTION: 2
O believers! Let no men laugh at other men who may perhaps be better than themselves; and let no woman laugh at another woman, who may perhaps be better than herself. Do not defame through sarcastic remarks about one another, nor call one another by offensive nicknames. It is an evil thing to be called by a bad name after being a believer, and those who do not repent are the ones who are the wrongdoers.[11] O believers! Avoid immoderate suspicion, for in some cases suspicion is a sin. Do not spy on one another, nor backbite one another (to say something about another behind ones back that if one hears it, dislikes it). Would any of you like to eat the flesh of his dead brother? Surely you would abhor it. Fear Allah; for Allah is the Accepter of repentance, Merciful.[12] O mankind! We created you from a single pair of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes that you might get to know one another. Surely the noblest of you in the sight of Allah is he who is the most righteous. Allah is All-Knowledgeable, All-Aware.[13]

49:[11-13]


Islamic etiquettes of moral behavior


Mankind is created from a single male and a female and noblest is he who is the most righteous

The beduin Arabs say: “We have believed." Tell them: “You have not believed; rather say 'We have become Muslims;' for faith has not yet found its way into your hearts. If you obey Allah and His Rasool, He will not deny you the reward of your deeds; surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful."[14] The true believers are those who believe in Allah and His Rasool, then never doubt; and make Jihãd (exert their efforts) with their wealth and their persons in the cause of Allah. Such are the ones who are truthful in their claim to be the believers.[15] O Prophet say to those who claim to have believed: "Do you apprise Allah of your religion? Whereas, Allah knows all that is in the heavens and the earth and He has full knowledge of everything."[16] They think they have conferred upon you a favor by embracing Islam. Tell them: “You have conferred upon me no favor by accepting Islam. It was Allah Who has conferred a favor upon you in guiding you to the true faith; admit this, if you are men of truth.[17] Surely Allah knows the secrets of the heavens and the earth; and Allah is watching all your actions."[18]

49:[14-18]

The difference between a true Believer and a Muslim.

Major Issues, Divine Law and Guidance:

* Allah commanded lowering ones voice in the presence of the Prophet.
* Make peace between the believers if they fight among themselves.
* Islamic etiquettes of moral behavior:
- Do not laugh at another to down degrade him.
- Do not defame another through sarcastic remarks.
- Do not call another by offensive nicknames.
- Avoid immoderate suspicions, for in some cases it is a sin.
- Do not spy on one another.
- Do not backbite one another.
- All mankind is created from one man and one woman, therefore, no one has superiority over another and noblest is he who is the most righteous
* True believer is he who believes in Allah, His Rasool and makes Jihãd with his wealth and person in the Way of Allah.

The subject matter of this Sürah is to teach Muslims manners worthy of true believers. In the first five verses they are taught the manners they should observe with regard to Allah and His Rasool. They are given the instruction that it is not right to believe information without basis and not to act without careful thought. If information is received about a person, a group or a community, it should be evaluated carefully to see whether the source of information is reliable or not. If the source is not reliable, it should be tested and examined to see whether the news is authentic or not before taking any action on it. Guidance is provided towards attitudes that Muslims should adopt in cases where groups of Muslims have conflict with each other.

Muslims are exhorted to safeguard against the evils that corrupt collective life and spoil mutual relationships such as mocking and taunting each other, calling other names, creating suspicions, spying into other people’s affairs and backbiting. All of these evils are declared as forbidden and unlawful. In addition, national and racial distinctions that cause universal corruption in the world are condemned. Nations, tribes and families with pride of ancestry tend to look down upon others as inferior to themselves. Nationalism historically promotes superiority complexes that have been the main cause of injustices, wars and tyranny in the world. In this Sürah Allah has cut the root of this evil by stating that all men are descendants of the same pair of humans (Adam and Eve) and their division into tribes and communities is only for the sake of recognition, not for boasting and pride, and there is no lawful basis of one man’s superiority over the other except on the basis of moral excellence.

In conclusion, people are told that true Faith is not the verbal statement of believing in Allah and His Rasool, but to obey them in practical life and to exert sincere efforts with one’s self and wealth in the cause of Allah. As for those who profess Islam orally without testifying by their hearts and actions, thinking that they had done someone a favor by accepting Islam, they may be counted among the Muslims in this world and may even be treated as Muslims in the society, but they are not believers in the sight of Allah.
