Ma'roof and Munkar
(Enjoining what is Right & Forbidding What is Wrong)
Urging people to do what is right and to avoid doing wrong is a basic precept in Islam. This command of Allah is mentioned in verse after verse of the Quran. The Messenger of Allah, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) reinforced Allah's command with Directives to the Muslim Ummah to enjoin right conduct and forbid wrongdoing. As Muslims, we often read these verses and hadiths without fully understanding their significance to us and to our society.
The Author has compiled the most important statements of classical and more recent scholars to explain and comment on what it means, in practical terms to enjoin what is good and right and forbid what is wrong.
