The Advice Of Luqman The Wise To His Son
I wished that we ponder over these verses that gather issues of belief, worship, manners and enjoining the good and forbidding the evil. These verses are from the greatest of verses which must be pondered over and benefited from in terms of belief, worship and manners because we learn knowledge for action and to improve our manners with what we know from the Book of Allāh and the Sunnah of the Messenger and his life.
Allāh mentions His favours upon Luqman – the wise. He is known with this characteristic. He isn’t mentioned except that it is said ‘the wise’ because Allah bore witness that He has given him wisdom and due to that he must be thankful to Allah. […]
Wisdom is to put something in its place and this is from the wisdom of Luqmān and every caller who is wise: he puts everything in its right context. All the Prophets are wise scholars who put everything in their appropriate place. They go forward in their call upon the foundation of this wisdom. Likewise, they educate and nurture the people upon this great wisdom. […]
From wisdom is to tread the path of the Prophets (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon them) in calling the people to Allah and in educating them to know the religion of Allah such that you begin with the most important of all affairs followed by the next most important.
