What Does The Bible Say How To Treat Others

    Holy Bible

    The Bible is the reason why every man in this world is called to be merciful, and for this reason, as a Muslim, you are very much obliged to follow in the footstep of your teacher and ask him what the Koran teaches about how to treat others.

    For example, 1 Corinthians 13:3-6

    3 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good

    4 For evil is as evil does, and evil does not possess strength. 5 Do not rejoice that the wicked are punished,

    Do not rejoice that the vile is punished,

    For they shall soon be with you. 6 But rejoice that the righteous are rewarded.

    The message of the Qur’an and the Hadith

    The Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) said, “The purest and most noble trait in the creature is kindness”.

    The words of Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu alaihi wasallam), The purest and most noble trait in the creature is kindness. Allah reveals:

    “If you show kindness, people will show kindness to you and if you show abuse, people will abuse you” (Bukhari #1825).

    The words of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu alaihi wasallam), The purest and most noble trait in the creature is kindness.

    The Islamic perspective

    The Muslims believe that we should show the same kindness to others that we expect them to show to us.

    According to the Islamic perspective, people should be treated with kindness, kindness should be shown to those whom we consider fair and those whom we consider the worst of the worst.

    A husband has the right to deal with his wife in whatever way he wishes, and the wife has the right to treat her husband in the same manner she wishes.

    Similarly, a servant has the right to do as he wishes with the person he is serving. But at the same time, that servant has the right to return that service to his master as he wishes.

    The Golden Rule: Treat others as you wish to be treated

    As mentioned above, Muhammad (Sallallaahu alaihi wasallam) said:

    “If you show kindness, people will show kindness to you and if you show abuse, people will abuse you.”

    1 Peter 3:15 And do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.

    We can read this verse from the New Testament, but it gives us the overall message of the whole New Testament: The only way we will be able to show kindness to others is by treating them with kindness.

    2 Peter 3:7 Take care, and be on your guard against all covetousness, for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.

    According to the Bible, God does not want us to accumulate wealth because it will not benefit us in any way.

    God wants us to be happy. He does not want us to hoard and hoard so that we become destitute in our old age.

    He wants us to be able to get food, clothing, shelter and he even wants us to be able to do simple things like paying our rent and other things.

    God wants us to be able to get married, have children and spend time with our families.

    A person should be able to achieve happiness only when he/she lives according to the will of God.

    Leviticus 19:19 Do not wrong any woman who is your mother by driving her from her home.

    20 Do not call a woman evil for being in bed with another man’s wife and do not commit adultery in your heart.

    A person should be able to achieve happiness only when he/she lives according to the will of God.

    Matthew 7:12 “Therefore be on your guard against all covetousness, for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.”

    The Bible teaches us a lot of things and this one is one of them: Thou shalt not steal.

    God does not want you to take the possessions of others without their permission. Nor does He want you to take the things which are not yours.

    Proverbs 23:13 He who takes no thought for the future shall lose both his mind and his wealth.

    In the same way, He does not want you to take the possessions of others without their permission.

    Nor does He want you to take the things which are not yours. In the same way, He does not want you to take the possessions of others without their permission.

    In 1 Samuel, David punished a boy named Moriah for stealing his clothes.

    David said to him, “Thou shalt pay me for the clothes, and thou shalt not have them, because thou stoleest them from me.”

    This is one of the many cases when you should not steal from others.

    Proverbs 22:9,10:

    “A merry heart does good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.”

    “Thou shalt not covet; everyone who does wrong shall be punished, but the generous shall inherit the earth.”

    The Apostle Paul told Timothy to teach his young followers that:

    “1 Timothy 6:9-11, For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.
