Social Manners in Islam
The subject of social manners encompasses a wide and diverse range of issues. It includes the private relations between the Muslim and his family, kin, neighbours, and employees. At the same time, it also addresses the relationship between the Muslim and his society; whether Muslims or non-Muslims. In short, the issues addressed in this book are important for every Muslim; male and female. Such issues should be taught within every home, society, and Muslim community. The book as a whole is an attempt to promote Islamic and humanitarian feelings towards Muslims, who are known through studies, to stand for nothing but goodness, mercy, civilized and humanitarian dignity. A Muslim is also good-natured, generous, truthful, and never betrays. He is neither harsh nor oppressive to the innocent, even if it be an insect. Additionally he is noble; full of dignity, and he never oppresses people, nor does he give in if oppressed, and he bows to none other than Allah even if he is threatened with torture and death.
