Haqooq ul Ibad – Humanitarian Activities in Islam
Islam is not just a religion but a way of life. Since the relationship of Man with Allah Almighty and our deeds for his dignity are very important in Islam, the deeds addressed to human beings are also described in detail in the Quran and Hadees.
Good Manners with Parents: –
As we discuss the activities of Islam in relation to humanity, the most important and natural human relationship is between him and his parents. As Muslims it is our duty to always obey our parents and never try to blame them in any way. One is allowed to speak and inquire about anything in a calm manner.
As Muslims we should always respect our parents and especially our mother. Prophet Muhammad (SAAW) once said that it is a great privilege for a Muslim to his mother. It is also our job to care for our father as he did when he was young.
Man and Woman’s Rights to each other: –
Husband and wife have a good relationship. According to Islam, they should both take care of each other and live with patience and love. It is a great duty for a Muslim woman to always obey and respect her husband. On the other hand, it is the husband’s duty to give his wife the respect she deserves and to fulfill her needs. The husband is also responsible for arranging resources to raise his children and the whole family.
Rights of the Poor and Orphans: –
The Islamic system provides adequate protection for the poor and needy in society. The Zakat program is a clear example of how people help and distribute their income from the poor and needy. In this way the distribution of wealth remains in control and the poor get their right and can meet their housing needs.
The same is true for an orphan and lost a father at a young age, Muslims ask his close relatives to take care of that child and keep the fear of Allah in heart and mind while working on Orphan stories.
Respect for teachers: –
According to Islamic law and tradition, teachers are known as the nation’s guide and are highly respected. Prophet Muhammad (SAAW) said “He is the best of you who reads the Qur’an and teaches others.” It is our main responsibility to give our teachers the dignity and respect they deserve.
Neighbor and Patient Rights: –
It is an important duty of a Muslim to have good relations with his neighbors. In any emergency, it is our neighbor who first comes to our aid. We should be trying to help our neighbors when they are facing any crisis.
It is also important for a Muslim to go to his sick Muslim brother. In this way the patient feels better and grateful when he sees the people around him simply because of his care and support.
It is the beauty of Islam that embraces all aspects of life while respecting humanity without discrimination.
Imortance of Huqooq-ul-Ibaad
When we talk about Islam, it is not just following the path of righteousness but Islam is a complete way of life that includes both deeds directed to Allah (SWT) and the deeds we owe to humanity and their rights.
. It is really necessary to understand that if we show negligence in hoqooq Allah, Allah can forgive them but if we ignore hoqooq ul Ibad, those will not be forgiven by Allah but only the person whose hoqooq is ignored.
