Importance of Kindness in the Holy Quran

Article by James Parker

The religion of Islam greatly encourages peace, love, kindness, and compassion. In the Holy Quran, there are several verses about these traits.Prohibition of racism in IslamThe racism is strictly prohibited in the religion of Islam. The Holy Quran very successfully explains the reason of the creation of different races. Consider the following verse from the Holy Quran. “O mankind! We created you from a male and a female and made you into nations and tribes that you may know and honor each other (not that you should despise one another). Indeed the most honorable of you in the sight of God is the most righteous.” Chapter 49, Verse 13 The Holy Quran in this verse does not only tell that the racism is not allowed but it also tells that all the human beings are equal in the eyes of Allah Almighty. Only the Muslim who fulfils his duties is better in the eyes of God. Islam prefers impartialityThese days the so-called Muslims attack the faith and belief of the people belonging to religions other than the Islam. However, in the Holy Quran, the impartiality is recommended and praised by the Almighty. “God does not forbid you to be kind and equitable to those who have neither fought against your faith nor driven you out of your homes. In fact God loves the equitable.” Chapter 60, Verse 8Islam encourages forgivenessThe religion of Islam encourages forgiveness. Although forgiveness is something hard to practice, however Allah almighty promises too large a reward to ignore. Consider the verse of the Holy Quran, which is mentioned as follows. “Be quick in the race for forgiveness from your Lord, and for a Garden (paradise) whose width is that of the heavens and of the earth, prepared for the righteous – Those who spend (freely), whether in prosperity or in adversity, who restrain (their) anger and pardon (all) men – for God loves those who do good.” Chapter 3, Verses 133-134Some kind deeds according to a verse of the Holy QuranThe following is a very beautiful verse from the Holy Quran. “And what will explain to you what the steep path is? It is the freeing of a (slave) from bondage; or the giving of food in a day of famine to an orphan relative, or to a needy in distress. Then will he be of those who believe, enjoin fortitude, and encourage kindness and compassion.” Chapter 90, Verses 12-17 In this verse of the Holy Quran, some of the kind deeds are explained which hold significance in the eyes of the Almighty. Human slavery is a grave problem even today. Islam has recognized the problem and encouraged people to free slaves. Other than that, feeding the hungry and/or poor is also a great deed in Islam. It earns many virtues for the people who do this. The orphans are given a lot of importance in Islam. Looting the wealth of the orphans either blatantly or by trick is a great sin. All the Muslims should try to learn the Holy Quran to make sure that they are on the right path.

Not in Bible But in Quran (11); King Solomon and His Unique Hoopoe

King Solomon and His Unique Hoopoe

King Solomon was inspecting his unique Hosts; and he reviewed the birds, He had a glance see the hoopoe but he could not see him. And when he became certain of the hoopoe’s absence, He said: I verily will punish him with hard punishment I will pluck out [all] his feathers as well as his tail plucked and leaving him out in the sun, where he would not be able to escape from reptiles, or I verily will slaughter him, by slitting his throat, or he verily shall bring me an acceptable excuse and a good reason (for absence).

The Hoopoe did not remain long [in absence], in other words, [he was away only] for a short while, and came to Solomon humbly, with his head up and his wings and tail lowered. Solomon pardoned him and asked him about what he had encountered during his absence: and he said, ‘I have discovered something of which you have no knowledge, and I have brought you from Sheba a verified report and sure tidings.

Sheba (Saba) is Yemen today.

The Hoopoe said: Lo! I found a woman ruling over them and she has been given abundance of everything; she has been given the knowledge of all things in her country, and has a mighty throne adorned with gems, pearls, gold and silver.

I found her and her people prostrating to the sun instead of Allah, and Satan has adorned for them their deeds and he has barred them from the Way, from the path of truth, so that they are not guided

So that they do not worship Allah; why do they not prostrate to Allah?” the Hoopoe said! Who brings forth the hidden in the heavens, the rain and the earth vegetation, and knows what they conceal, within their hearts, of good and evil and what they proclaim with their tongues of good and evil.

Allah – there is no god except Him, the Lord of the Mighty Throne’ (this clause constitutes an [independent] new sentence, which is a eulogy comprising [praise of] the Throne of the Compassionate One to counter the [description of the] throne of the Queen of Yemen: between the two, however, is an unfathomable difference.

He, Solomon, said, to the hoopoe: ‘We shall see whether you have spoken the truth, in what you have informed us, or whether you are of the liars

Solomon then composed a letter in the following form: ‘From the servant of Allah, Solomon, the son of David, to the Queen of Sheba. In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful: Peace be upon those who follow Guidance. To wit: do not rise up against me [in defiance], but come to me in submission’. He then stamped it with musk and sealed it with his ring, and said to the hoopoe:

Take this letter of mine and deliver it to them, then turn away, withdraw, from them, but remain close by them, and see what kind of response they shall give. Thus, he took it and approached the Queen. But as her soldiers were all around her, he cast it into her private chamber. When she saw it, she shuddered and was consumed by fear. She read what it said.

This interesting story of King Solomon, the Queen and the Hoopoe are found in the following verses:

Surah (Chapter) 27:20-28

20] And he (King Solomon) reviewed the

In Quran but not in Bible, the Conversation between King Solomon and the Hoopoe

Easy, just run into town, kill people, run out of town, kill all the deputys, rinse and repeat until you have 5000 bounty, and then you go and give in the pardon letter.

The Quran declares that King Solomon was inspecting his unique Hosts; and he reviewed the birds, He had a glance see the hoopoe but he could not see him. The Hoopoe was absent! King Solomon threatened to punish the Hoopoe severely or to kill it unless the Hoopoe has a reasonable excuse!

The Hoopoe came back and bravely said that he has got information that King Solomon has no idea about!

The Hoopoe said that he found a woman ruling over the people in Yemen and she has a mighty throne;

She and her people were prostrating to the sun instead of Allah. The Hoopoe wondered “why they do not worship Allah; why do they not prostrate to Allah.”

King Solomon, said, to the hoopoe: ‘We shall see whether you have spoken the truth, or not. He

(Solomon) then composed a letter and commanded the hoopoe to take the letter and deliver it to them, and see what kind of response they shall give. The Hoopoe did his job and the Queen, consumed by fear, read Solomon’s letter!

On the other hand, the Bible in Leviticus 11 declares that the Hoopoe is a Detested and Unclean bird.
