Hadith Explanation

The Culture of Islam

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Let not any one of you fall upon his wife in the manner a male animal suddenly jumps upon his female partner. Let there be a messenger (to go) between them.” He was then asked: “What is the messenger, O Messenger of Allah?” He said: “Kissing and endearing speech.” [Ihya Ulum Ud-Din by Imam Ghazali]

Islam has a complete culture of its own. Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) teaches us manners for every occasion and every person. Will we not then be taught how to conduct one of the most important relationships in life?

Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) asks us to dye ourselves in the colour of Islam. We are to replace the etiquettes (or lack thereof) of our local and ethnic cultures with the guidance of Islam.

“(We dye ourselves with) the colouring of Allah! For who is better in colouring than Allah? We are to worship none but Him.” [Quran: Surah Baqarah, Ayat 138]
