Allah Almighty has given man a place among the noblest of creatures and has given him the status of the noblest of the best from day one. If it is given, then its principles are also formulated so that the person fulfills all the responsibilities. Similarly, only those who follow the moral system to join the ranks of the noble creatures can be considered worthy of praise – truth, justice. Covenant and fidelity have always been admired in human morality and lies, oppression, dishonesty and betrayal have always been disliked – selfishness; Hard-heartedness, miserliness and narrow-mindedness have never been honored.
At the end of the day we are solely responsible for our success and our failure and the sooner we realize that and integrate that into our work ethic, we will start being successful. As long as we blame others for the reason we aren’t where we want to be, we will be always a failure. Man has always included himself among the people in which he is respected and, in other words, man does not like to go where there is a danger of feeling inferior or In order to maintain his individuality. walking on intellect and consciousness only proves that we are following the Muslim Ummah and the religion of Islam side by side with the community of those who are steadfast in the observance of morals. From this it became clear that human morality is in fact the universal reality that all human beings know and have always known. Good and evil are not hidden things but consciousness is in the nature of man. The Qur’an describes this fact in other words meaning “the human soul has been inspired by Allah to know good and evil.’
Some time ago, while going to work as usual in the early hours of the morning, there was a collision between a Scooty and a Toyota car, Alhamdulilah with the grace of Almighty there was no loss of life or property. There were three young men on the Scooty. As soon as the three youths regained consciousness after falling from the scooter, the three youths attacked the driver of car in such a way that if the driver had not acted wisely problems could have arisen The driver silenced the three young men, by saying that it was my fault or my mistake . When the youth heard this confession of guilt, the enthusiasm of their youth collapsed in an instant and the speed with which they are breathing stopped for a moment, they are squeezing their fists hard, including their teeths, to get rid of their mischief or to be angry.
It is human nature to go astray on a trivial matter, consciously or unconsciously. If we know for ourself that we often live unconsciously, we will not be able to keep our senses when we are angry , then we will mourn over our intellect. Such people should always be prepared in advance to awaken the positive thinking within them so that they can overcome the negative thinking and turn the negative into positive. The result is that the above-mentioned apology dismissed quarrel at an early stage. In Islamic law, it is called superior quality of morality over low morality and it is also interpreted as good morals. Our beloved Prophet Mohammad (Pbuh) has stated the foremost purpose of being sent down in this world and his mission in the following words.“I have been sent for the purpose of perfecting good morals.”. Our good morals will awaken a moral person like we from within. High morality is that in which man rises above the attitude of the other party and deals, and it should be remembered that a person’s morals should be positive without repetition of words and not retaliatory morals under negative thinking.
How we develop good morals
We have many responsibilities in the development of positive or good morals. These responsibilities are both collective and individual. Individual responsibilities are first and foremost upon parents, that is also called the first learning place, whatever Children learn from their parents until puberty also evident in their morals. Parents should equip their children with the light of moral education as well as conventional education so that they can move forward with moral awareness and join the ranks of righteous children. In collective responsibility, we need a society where it is imperative to lay the foundation for an environment free from immorality, shamelessness, oppression, murder, unjust bloodshed, bribery and wrongdoing, as the influence of the environment on morality is also felt.
Maulana Rumi saying in Persian is very popular,
“Suhbat e sauleh tura saulah kunad
Suhbat E tauleh tura tauleh kunad ”
Meaning: In the companionship of good people man learns good and man learns evil in the company of bad people” so we have a responsibility to choose a society or to provide our future generations a society that is a mirror of high moral values. An excellent example of this we see from the Companions of our beloved Prophet on whom the Prophet (Pbuh ) worked for more or less than thirteen and a half years, and when they became mature in faith and morals, the role they played in the triumph of Islam is visible.
The famous poet Alama Iqbal’s thoughts, ideas. The concept of self, the concept of perfect man, the concept of Shaheen and the concept of Faqr is the concept of Islamic morality.
In blessed verse of Surah ‘Al Imran’ purification is given priority and the teaching of the Book is postponed. This shows the extraordinary importance of morality and purification. The second wisdom is that education without purification is like a fruitless tree. It is like a futile endeavor. That effort is futile. Educations main aim is character building. Even with the addition of knowledge on one’s head, man remains a rude age. Like a termite, licking books is just as bad. Knowledge, which does not lead to moral change and purification of character, is certainly a mental luxury, but it is not productive The main subject of Quranic verses are about moral education. The subject of many verses is the formation of character and the embodiment of morality. 6236 verses of our Holy Book Quran are related to the Positive Values or Negative Values. But in both cases there is moral education. “The Ethics of the Prophets and the Righteous” is one of the most important topics in the Quran.
Allama Iqbal says “Woh Ilm Nahin, Zaher Hai Ahrar Ke Haq Mein Jis Ilm Ka Hasil Hai Jahan Mein Do Kaf-e-Jo”
Meaning: “That knowledge is a poison for free people, which ends in winning two handfuls of barley” The concept of knowledge is connected with the concept of morality. Knowledge that is only for the sake of the womb, not for the sake of a high standard of living, that is, for the sake of earning a living, is poisonous, . The knowledge we seek should be humane, moral, and character-building.
Allah Almighty commanded the beloved Prophet (Pbuh) to speak kindly to the common people including non Muslims with kindness and good manners.”
Our beloved prophet said strict words, harsh statements will not enter Paradise. In another place, Prophet said, “The fire of Hell has been forbidden to the one who speaks softly.”
The moral system of Islam provides us with a system free from discrimination. Prophet said. “No grace to the Arabs to the non-Arabs, no to the non-Arabs, to the Arabs and neither white skin over black skin, nor black skin over white skin, except by righteousness all are descendants of Adam and Adam was from dust.”
The Prophet (Pbuh ) said: The most perfect believer is the one who is good in morals and is kind to his family. Faith and modesty are intertwined . But today’s era is the era of demolition. (Replacement of ethics) This era of change of ethics is dark today the effect of modern science is tearing the veil of modesty. If we don’t have integrity, we have nothing. We can’t buy it. We can have all the money in the world, but if we are not a moral and ethical persons, than we really have nothing.
Morality is the best ornament of man. Protect this ornament and represent the true religion in the true sense.
