The moral values of the community we live in are rather distorted.
These moral principles which are the products of selfish passions and
the greed of people, yield then to selfishness, arrogance, sarcasm, rudeness
People believe that, in order to improve their living standards they have
to cheat or deceive others.
However, these are not the values that Allah has
determined for the human beings He created. The Qur’an orders people to
be dignified, modest, trustworthy, kind, faithful, mature and responsive.
The Qur’an even describes the way we should walk: "Turn not your face
away from men with pride, nor walk in insolence through the earth. Verily,
Allah likes not each arrogant boast" (Surat al-Luqman, 31:18)
On that account, duty of a believer is to apply these superior principles
that Allah has decreed.
Yet, today believers live in a miscreant community where these divine
ethics have been deserted. For that reason, they have to be extremely
careful against the perpetrating effects of this perverted and primitive
culture. They must continuously judge themselves within this community
not to be affected by their degenerated culture, and to be able to apply
the moral values of the Qur’an.
This brochure has been prepared to help believers not to forget the basic
teachings of the Qur’an, which they should always keep in mind.
In the following pages, these moral principles and prayers that are likely
to be forgotten by the believers will be examined in the light of related
verses of the Qur’an.
