The Real Righteousness

  • "Righteousness is not turning your faces towards the east or the west. Righteous are those who believe in GOD, the Last Day, the angels, the scripture, and the prophets; and they give the money, cheerfully, to the relatives, the orphans, the needy, the traveling alien, the beggars, and to free the slaves; and they observe the Contact Prayers (Salat) and give the obligatory charity (Zakat); and they keep their word whenever they make a promise; and they steadfastly persevere in the face of persecution, hardship, and war. These are the truthful; these are the righteous."

    Suratul Baqarah, Aya 177

    very apt reference to address our modern culture of super piety and self righteousness.

  • It would have been wonderful if the tafsir of Rasool Allaah SallAllaahu Alayhi wa Alaa Aalyhi wa Sallam was also posted along with the Ayah.
