Listen to Sultanق’s Sohbah here:

Read Sultanق’s Sohbah here:


Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam is saying:

لاَ ضَرَرَ وَلاَ ضِرَارَ

La Darar wala Dirar”, “There should be neither harming nor reciprocating harm.” Which means, don’t harm. In Islam, there is no harming to anybody, and to do harm to anyone is forbidden. So you must know what you are doing. Without knowing, of course, Allah ﷻ forgives us. But if you know, and from your envy, from your Hasad you harm people, it is not acceptable. And from Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla’s Justice, He ﷻ doesn’t interfere in this.

If you do any sin, or you didn’t do other things [related to] Islam or what Allah ﷻ ordered you, this is a sin, but He ﷻ forgives. Allah ﷻ forgives everything except what you do to somebody. This person must forgive you. This is the Justice of Allah ﷻ. It is important. And it’s not easy to find [the person]. Maybe you disobey somebody or harm somebody, and he disappears. Where can you find him? Or he passes away, dies. How can you ask forgiveness from him, to forgive you and to be clean on Judgment Day?

Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla is not changing. He ﷻ is the only Real One. Nothing affects Him ﷻ. So anytime you ask for forgiveness before you die, Allah ﷻ forgives you. What you do wrong against Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla; all of this Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla forgives. He ﷻ is the Most Merciful, and He ﷻ forgives.

But if you do [harm] for anybody, for human beings or for other things, you cannot be forgiven by Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla unless you sincerely ask forgiveness, asking from Allah ﷻ to find this man and to make him forgive you. It is difficult.

For this, before doing anything you must know what you are doing. Harming innocent people is not acceptable. If you are in war or another thing, Islam only allows to fight army, not fight innocent people, kill innocent people or harm them.

Even this, they were very sensitive about it. Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam wasn’t putting any money with him. When he comes [back], he distributes it. Many times, he took loans from non-Muslims when they were in Madinah. And sometimes these non-Muslims were very tough, saying, “O you didn’t give me my loan!” So the Sahabah sometimes wanted to beat these people or harm them. Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam quickly prevented them, [saying] “They have a right. And we will give them their right. Don’t say anything to them.”

It is very important to live with people in peace. Don’t think, “I am making Jihad” and harm people, innocent people. This is not acceptable. May Allah ﷻ give Muslims good understanding, and to know what Allah ﷻ and Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam are showing. If you do that, non-Muslims can accept Islam. But now, what they are showing is against that. They are showing Islam and Muslims as not good people. And this is from the ignorant ones who came maybe since 50 years ago, making Islam and showing Islam as very bad. May Allah ﷻ help us. May Allah ﷻ keep us not following our ego insha’Allah. Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
