Sister Nimra’s halaqa on Proper Etiquette in Islam

9 Jun


When was the last time we approached someone with a kind word? Do we truly realize the importance of etiquette and good manners?Image

Yesterday, June 7th, YMS had an inspirational halaqah given by Sister Nimra where we discussed how and why we should practice etiquette in our daily lives. One great story of our beloved Prophet (Salla Allahu alayhi wa sallam) sums up the insightful topic. Take note of his actions and manner.

“Rasulullah (S.A.W) was walking in the dessert at noon, it was very hot and he saw a woman carrying her luggage on her head. He went and took the luggage from her and carried it until they reached her destination. This woman did not know that it was Rasulullah (S.A.W) who was helping her. As they walked, Rasulullah (S.A.W) asked her why she was leaving town and she answered that she heard of a magician named Muhammad was in town. The whole way, she kept on saying immoral things about the prophet (S.A.W), but Rasulullah (S.A.W) was very patient and kind, therefore he did not say anything and he listened quietly. When they finally reached their destination Rasulullah (S.A.W) put down her bag, and when he was just about to leave, the woman said to him, “Oh kind person! At least tell me your name!”Rasulullah (S.A.W) replied, “I am the person because of whom you left town.” The woman was amazed to hear this, and she felt bad that such a kind, helpful and true person had been wronged so she accepted Islam.” (

The Prophet’s (Salla Allahu alayhi wa sallam) simple action and his courtesy transformed a woman’s life by inspiring her to convert to Islam. This is not the only story where his etiquette has inspired others, there is numerous moving stories relating to his protocol. If we all were to practice and remind friends and family good manners daily, imagine how optimistic our world will be. Smile, be helpful, and optimistic because anyone who is watching can be motivated by your etiquette and who knows, it can change their perspectives in life.

After the beneficial halaqah, all the sisters had a quality bonding time over ice cream and donuts at Dunkin Donuts/Baskin Robbins ending the night splendidly.

Join us next Friday at 7 pm for more insightful and fun halaqa 🙂

JazakAllah Khair
