59 examples of how the Quran tells Muslims to behave

The Qur’an was revealed by Allah in order for mankind to be guided. Below are 59 instructions that have been directly ordained upon us through the Holy Quran:

1. Do not be rude in speech

“So by mercy from Allah, [O Muhammad], you were lenient with them. And if you had been rude [in speech] and harsh in heart, they would have disbanded from about you. So pardon them and ask forgiveness for them and consult them in the matter. And when you have decided, then rely upon Allah . Indeed, Allah loves those who rely [upon Him].” – The Holy Quran 3:159

2. Restrain Anger

“Who spend [in the cause of Allah] during ease and hardship and who restrain anger and who pardon the people – and Allah loves the doers of good.” – The Holy Quran 3:134

3. Be good to others

“Worship Allah and associate nothing with Him, and to parents do good, and to relatives, orphans, the needy, the near neighbor, the neighbor farther away, the companion at your side, the traveler, and those whom your right hands possess. Indeed, Allah does not like those who are self-deluding and boastful.” – The Holy Quran 4:36

4. Do not be arrogant

“[Allah] said, “Descend from Paradise, for it is not for you to be arrogant therein. So get out; indeed, you are of the debased.” – The Holy Quran 7:13

5. Forgive others for their mistakes

“Show forgiveness, enjoin what is good, and turn away from the ignorant.” – The Holy Quran 7:199

6. Speak to people mildly

“And speak to him with gentle speech that perhaps he may be reminded or fear [Allah].” – The Holy Quran 20:44

7. Do not ridicule one another

“O you who have believed, let not a people ridicule [another] people; perhaps they may be better than them; nor let women ridicule [other] women; perhaps they may be better than them. And do not insult one another and do not call each other by [offensive] nicknames. Wretched is the name of disobedience after [one’s] faith. And whoever does not repent – then it is those who are the wrongdoers.”  – The Holy Quran 49:11

8. Do not say a word of disrespect to your parents

“Say not to them [so much as], “uff,” and do not repel them but speak to them a noble word” – The Holy Quran 17:23

9. Do not follow anyone blindly

“And when it is said to them, ‘Follow what Allah has revealed,’ they say, ‘Rather, we will follow that which we found our fathers doing.’ Even though their fathers understood nothing, nor were they guided?” – The Holy Quran 2:170

10. Grant more time to repay if the debtor is in hard times

“And if someone is in hardship, then [let there be] postponement until [a time of] ease. But if you give [from your right as] charity, then it is better for you, if you only knew.” – The Holy Quran 2:280

11. Do not engage in bribery

“And do not consume one another’s wealth unjustly or send it [in bribery] to the rulers in order that [they might aid] you [to] consume a portion of the wealth of the people in sin, while you know [it is unlawful].” – The Holy Quran 2:188

12. Do not break promises

“Righteousness is not that you turn your faces toward the east or the west, but [true] righteousness is [in] one who believes in Allah , the Last Day, the angels, the Book, and the prophets and gives wealth, in spite of love for it, to relatives, orphans, the needy, the traveler, those who ask [for help], and for freeing slaves; [and who] establishes prayer and gives zakah; [those who] fulfill their promise when they promise; and [those who] are patient in poverty and hardship and during battle. Those are the ones who have been true, and it is those who are the righteous.” – The Holy Quran 2:177

13. Stand out firmly for justice

“O you who have believed, be persistently standing firm in justice, witnesses for Allah , even if it be against yourselves or parents and relatives. Whether one is rich or poor, Allah is more worthy of both. So follow not [personal] inclination, lest you not be just. And if you distort [your testimony] or refuse [to give it], then indeed Allah is ever, with what you do, Acquainted.” – The Holy Quran 4:135

14. Women also have the right for inheritance

“And for women is a share of what the parents and close relatives leave, be it little or much – an obligatory share.” – The Holy Quran 4:7

15. Protect orphans

“To this world and the Hereafter. And they ask you about orphans. Say, “Improvement for them is best. And if you mix your affairs with theirs – they are your brothers. And Allah knows the corrupter from the amender. And if Allah had willed, He could have put you in difficulty. Indeed, Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise.” – The Holy Quran 2:220

16. Do not consume one another’s wealth unjustly

O you who have believed, do not consume one another’s wealth unjustly but only [in lawful] business by mutual consent. And do not kill yourselves [or one another]. Indeed, Allah is to you ever Merciful. – The Holy Quran 4:29

17. Try for settlement between people

“And if two factions among the believers should fight, then make settlement between the two. But if one of them oppresses the other, then fight against the one that oppresses until it returns to the ordinance of Allah . And if it returns, then make settlement between them in justice and act justly. Indeed, Allah loves those who act justly.” – The Holy Quran 49:9

18. Avoid assumption

“O you who have believed, avoid much [negative] assumption. Indeed, some assumption is sin.” – The Holy Quran 49:12

19. Do not spy and backbite

And do not spy or backbite each other. Would one of you like to eat the flesh of his brother when dead? You would detest it. And fear Allah ; indeed, Allah is Accepting of repentance and Merciful- The Holy Quran 49:12

20. Spend wealth in charity

“Believe in Allah and His Messenger and spend out of that in which He has made you successors. For those who have believed among you and spent, there will be a great reward.” – The Holy Quran 57:7

Ayah of the week

Say, ‘What counts most as a witness?’ Say,
‘God is witness between you and me. This Qur an was revealed for
me to warn you [people] and everyone it reaches. Do you really bear
witness that there are other gods beside God?’ Say, ‘I myself do not
bear witness [to any such thing].’ Say, ‘He is only one God, and I
disown whatever you join with Him.’

/ 6:19 /
