Luqman (alaihi salaam) Instructions to His Son


[31. Surah Luqman : Ayahs 12,13,16,17,18,19]
And certainly We gave wisdom to Luqman (alaihi salaam), saying: Be grateful to Allah. And whoever is grateful, he is on!y grateful for his own soul; and whoever is ungrateful, then surely Allah is Self-sufficient, Praised.

And when Luqman (alaihi Salaam) said to his son while he admonished him: O my son! do not associate aught with Allah; most surely polytheism is a grievous iniquity.

O my son! surely if it is the very weight of the grain of a mustard-seed, even though it is in (the heart of) rock, or (high above) in the heaven or (deep down) in the earth, Allah will bring it (to light); surely Allah is Knower of subtleties, Aware.

O my son! keep up prayer and enjoin the good and forbid the evil, and bear patiently that which befalls you; surely these acts require courage.

And do not turn your face away from people in contempt, nor go about in the land exulting overmuch; surely Allah does not love any self-conceited boaster.

And pursue the right course in your going about and lower your voice; surely the most hateful of voices is braying of the asses.


Our Lord! accept from us; surely Thou art the Hearing, the Knowing.
