Do Not Harm Others

Children! Let's listen to a blessed Hadees

Do not harm others

Owais Yameen Attari Madani

The Final Prophet Sayyiduna Muhammad صَلَّى الـلّٰـهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم has stated: اَلْمُسْلِمُ مَنْ سَلِمَ الْمُسْلِمُونَ مِنْ لِّسَانِهٖ وَيَدِہٖ Translation: A Muslim is he from whose tongue and hand other Muslims are not harmed. (Bukhari, vol. 1, p. 15, Hadees: 10)

Dear children! One of the blessings of Allah Almighty is the blessing of the tongue. We should do good deeds and avoid bad deeds whilst being grateful upon this blessing.

Some children make false accusations against other children to avoid being scolded or punished after misbehaving, saying that an action was not done by them but by someone else. Some children call each other names, for example the one who is short in height is called ‘shorty’, the tall one is called ‘lanky’, and the ones of a dark complexion are called ‘Kaalu’. This is not a good thing to do.

Good children! It is good for your health to play an appropriate game at a certain time of the day, but you should not play such a game that involves beating or hurting someone, such as playing Hit and Run with a rubber ball or playing Cops and Robbers with plastic pistols etc.

In the same way, some children scratch, pull hair, push or hit each other for no reason, which is a very bad thing. No one likes such children and no one praises such children either, but rather, such a child becomes known for being very naughty, whenever you see him, he is fighting and quarrelling, and so on and so forth.

Dear children! We have to avoid all the bad things mentioned here by acting upon this hadith and not hurting anyone with our tongue or our hands to become the best Muslims. May Allah Almighty give us the taufeeq to act upon this.

اٰمِیْن بِجَاہِ النَّبِیِّ الْاَمِیْن صلَّی اللہ علیہ واٰلہٖ وسلَّم
