"O you who believe! Stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allah, even though it be against yourselves"
   
 
 
In the Name of Allah, The Most Gracious, Most Merciful  
 

Dear noble brothers, we are discussing a new lesson of this series about the Ayaat that start with, "O you who believe…", and the Ayah today is the following:  

(O you who believe! Stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allah, even though it be against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin, be he rich or poor, Allah is a Better Protector to both (than you). So follow not the lusts (of your hearts), lest you may avoid justice, and if you distort your witness or refuse to give it, verily, Allah is Ever Well-Acquainted with what you do.)

[An-Nisa', 135]

When man talks about unimportant matters, he might be flat on his back, but when he discusses something important, he sits up, and if he discusses a serious issue, he stands up heedfully. This heedful attentive attitude is referred to in the Noble Quran by the word (Qawwam) which is a hyperbole tense, in other words, the believer is extremely keen on searching for the truth. Allah the Almighty says:    

(O you who believe! Stand out firmly for justice…)

[An-Nisa', 135]

A scholar said, "Establishing justice for an hour is as valuable as worshipping Allah for 80 years." In this context, do you treat your daughter-in-law the same way you wish your daughter to be treated in her household? Do you ask your wife to do something that is beyond her scope, while you yourself refuse to do it? Do you give yourself the right to do certain things while you deprive your wife from such a right? If you are like that, then you are a racist.
