Good Morals and Protecting The Generation


What are the good morals in islam? What is the protecting the generation?

Allah has created the human being as a specimen of elegance and depth. However, his real essence lies in serving Allah, understanding His Glory and reaping a share of insight into spiritual mysteries.

The universe and the creatures within are not haphazard coincidences without purpose. Neither is the human being. He was not created to roam according to his whims. There is a divine purpose behind his creation. The human is the only being who can reflect Allah’s attributes of beauty (jamal) and glory (jalal) and therefore the only being who can be a friend (khalil) to the Lord.

All the other beings exist to help man survive. Man has been made the caliph. However, it is a trust only given to those willing to make sacrifices. For those who properly carry out this duty, the Lord becomes their seeing eye and hearing ear. This is possible only by embodying the morals of the Qur’an. The Almighty states:

“And not equal are the good deed and the bad. Repel evil by that which is better; and thereupon the one whom between you and him is enmity will become as though he was a devoted friend. But none is granted it except those who are patient, and none is granted it except one having a great portion of good.” (Fussilat, 41: 34-35)

The Qur’an takes a person to the peak of morals. It is good morals that add beauty to all deeds of worship. Hasan Basri would thank and even send gifts to people who spoke behind his back.

The human being has come into this world as a composition of divine beauties. Because he has been subjected to a trial called life, he has also been given temporary freedom to choose between right and wrong. He has been left alone between his ego’s appetite for evil and his spirit’s leanings towards the good.

The risk of bad habits is there to ensure that trial. The Qur’an says:

“And by the soul and He who proportioned it. And inspired it with discernment of wickedness and its righteousness. He has succeeded who purifies it. And he has failed who instills it with corruption.” (Al-Shams, 91: 7-10)

It is good nature that makes a man, while a bad nature turns him into something else.

It is the darkest, stupidest and most dangerous of all mistakes to live on Allah’s earth and make the most of His blessings, while rebelling against His commands. Tyrants and those who resist the order of faith and morals cannot escape divine retribution.

The only way to live as a human being is through religion and morals. The epitome of humanity, as well as the most perfect role model, is the Prophet Muhammed Mustafa (saw).

The Qur’an says:

“There has certainly for you in the Messenger of Allah an excellent model for anyone whose hope is in Allah and the Last Day and remembers Allah often.” (Al-Ahzab, 33: 21)

The Prophet (saw) refers to his high morals, when he says:

“My Lord has trained and educated me…and beautifully at that.” (Suyuti, al-Jamiu’s-Saghir, I, 12)

It is for that reason that the secret of the human being can only be unravelled by the Mohammedan truth. The more one perishes in him, the clearer the divine mysteries become.

May our Lord gather us all under the Prophet’s (saw) banner of morals and happiness!
