Be Polite, Please!

Suuratul Isra’ Verse 53.

وَقُل لِّعِبَادِى يَقُولُوا۟ ٱلَّتِى هِىَ أَحْسَنُ ۚ إِنَّ ٱلشَّيْطَـٰنَ يَنزَغُ بَيْنَهُمْ ۚ إِنَّ ٱلشَّيْطَـٰنَ كَانَ لِلْإِنسَـٰنِ عَدُوًّا مُّبِينًا ﴿٥٣

53. And say to My slaves that they should (only) say those words that are the best. (Because) Shaytan verily, sows disagreements among them. Surely, Shaytan is to man a plain enemy.

Tafsir Ibn Kathir

Allaah commands His servant Muhammad to tell the believing servants of Allaah that they should address one another in their conversations and discussions with the best and politest of words, for if they do not do that, Shaytan will sow discord among them, and words will lead to actions, so that evil and conflicts and fights will arise among them. For Shaytan is the enemy of Adam and his descendants, and has been since he refused to prostrate to Adam. His enmity is obvious and manifest. For this reason it is forbidden for a man to point at his Muslim brother with an iron instrument, for Shaytan may cause him to strike him with it.

Imam Ahmad recorded that Abu Hurayrah said: “The Messenger of Allah said:

«لَا يُشِيرَنَّ أَحَدُكُمْ إِلَى أَخِيهِ بِالسِّلَاحِ، فَإِنَّهُ لَا يَدْرِي أَحَدُكُمْ لَعَلَّ الشَّيْطَانَ أَنْ يَنْزِعَ فِي يَدِهِ فَيَقَعَ فِي حُفْرَةٍ مِنَ النَّار»

(No one of you should point at his brother with a weapon, for he does not know whether Shaytan will cause him to strike him with it and thus be thrown into a pit of Fire) Al-Bukhari and Muslim recorded this Hadith with the chain of narration from `Abdur-Razzaq.

What not to say!

Suuratul Baqarah Verse 104.


يَـٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ لَا تَقُولُوا۟ رَٰعِنَا وَقُولُوا۟ ٱنظُرْنَا وَٱسْمَعُوا۟ ۗ وَلِلْكَـٰفِرِينَ عَذَابٌ أَلِيمٌ﴿١٠٤


104. O you who believe! Say not (to the Messenger Peace be upon him ) Ra’ina but say Unzurna (Do make us understand) and hear. And for the disbelievers there is a painful torment.


Ad-Dahhak said that Ibn `Abbas commented on the Ayah,

﴿لاَ تَقُولُواْ رَعِنَا﴾

(Say not (to the Messenger ) Ra`ina) “They used to say to the Prophet , Ar`ina samak (which is an insult).” Ibn Abu Hatim said that it was reported that Abu Al-`Aliyah, Abu Malik, Ar-Rabi` bin Anas, `Atiyah Al-`Awfi and Qatadah said similarly. Further, Mujahid said, “`Do not say Ra`ina’ means, `Do not dispute’.” Mujahid said in another narration, “Do not say, `We hear from you, and you hear from us.”’ Also, `Ata’ said, “Do not say,


(Ra`ina), which was a dialect that the Ansar used and which was forbidden from use by Allah.”
