Highlights of Hadhrat Mufti Ebrahim Salejee Saheb's Majlis
1. A very important branch of Islam is mu‘aasharah, which would translate as social etiquette. However, nowadays many of us don’t even consider this as part of Islam. We confine Islam to just ‘ibaadat and zikr, and then think to ourselves that we have perfected our Islam, whereas these are things of our Deen.
2. The system of Allah Ta‘ala is that whoever will adopt these Islamic teachings then the cash benefit is that they will find success and respect in this world. Thus, we find that even those non-Muslims who adopted the Islamic teachings of social etiquette they also find success in their worldly endeavours. Obviously, they will not be rewarded for it in the hereafter.
3. Social etiquette covers many dimensions of our life. There are etiquettes for visiting the sick, etiquettes for husband and wife relationship, etiquettes when dealing and interacting with people etc. However, to gain an understanding of everything all at once is difficult. For those who do not know it, they should watch the approach adopted by their elders in different situations and after understanding it, they may practise it. However, an important point of note is that a certain custom or approach in one area will not necessarily be accepted in other communities. For example, in certain outlying villages, burping aloud is normal and acceptable. However, the same will not apply to a cultured and refined community.
