Marvelous manners and exemplary conduct is their ultimate mission 55.

Are compassionate and caring especially to the young, weak, and infirm 79. Believe God helps them because of the weak, disabled, and helpless 80. Do not mock people with deformities; the disabled are not unable. Perhaps those we mock are better than us; mockery ever mocks those who mock 81.

Reach out to widows, orphans, set free “slaves”, and fight for the marginalized 83. Do not blame the poor for their poverty; God tests us all 84.

This is for my Intro to Islam class and I need 2-3 sentence summary of each and individual
quotes.
50. Are not selective about human sympathy, -dignity, -rights, and -justice
Do not treat people according to how you feel for them. Everyone is equal before Allah and
should also be the case before you. Do not look at the wrong things a person did and judge
him based on them.
51. Do not have malicious joy (shamatah) when others they do not like are in pain
Do not take pleasure in the misfortune of your enemies. Always help your enemies when
they are suffering and never wish harm upon them.
52. Practice the golden rule; love for others what they love for themselves (all freedoms,
opportunities, and rights to the same extent regardless of race, gender, class, caste)
Wish for others what you wish for yourself. Look at those who are less fortunate than them
the way you look at yourself. They are not jealous of other people who are different from
them and treat each one of them the way you want to be treated.
53. Believe in continuous self-improvement; do not expect people to accept them just the way
they are (even when they are unrefined and coarse in manners)
Make yourself better. People cannot love you just for you. You should have a reason to be
loved
54. Marvelous manners and exemplary conduct is their ultimate mission
Strive to lead as an example to others. The people should be able to follow your footsteps
and view you as a role model.
55. Work hard and then trust in God; first tie their ‘camel’ before they expect miracles; tawakkul
(trust) is not tawaakul (indifference) or ta’aTTul (vain hopes)
Do not lose hope when things don’t work the way you wanted. God has better plans for you
and knows what is best for you and the time it is best for you
56. Believe in human agency and autonomy; God only change those who want to change
God does not change the situation of the people unless they themselves try to change their
own situation. When God intends to punish the people, there is no way of escaping it.
57. Are noble because they are human; God has created them as on earth
Do not consider yourself better than another person. In the end we are all the same before
God because he created us equally in His own image.

58. Believe in the Oneness of Man (humankind); See themselves as children of Adam and Eve
first; every other allegiance is secondary; race, color, caste, class, and language are less
important determinants of worth.
There is no racism and discrimination in Islam. We are all equal despite differences in
color or social class. The rich and the poor bow down side by side proclaiming God’s
greatness
60. Take blame when they need to; they do not displace blame-at times act like Sparticus
Be answerable to your mistakes and don’t let others fall for you. Sacrifice yourself if need
be in order to save a situation.
61. Will always choose the middle way (qasd) between extremes
Choose the noble way and do not follow the ways of the ordinary people. You will gain
knowledge, calmness and insight, and enlightenment of the world.
62. To gain Divine proximity, they pray in the middle of the night, and do voluntary fasts
Do not wait to be reminded to pray or fast. You ...
