ENJOINING GOOD AND FORBIDDING EVIL (AMR BIL-MA’ROUF WA NAHI ANIL MUNKAR)

“Let there arise from you a group of people inviting what is good, enjoining what is right, and forbidding what is wrong; these are the ones who will be successful.” (3:104)

In order for religion to progress and for society to flourish, people must initiate, advise, and attempt to guide each other toward righteousness by deterring each other away from misconduct. This action is mandatory for those who believe in God and the Day of Judgment. Giving sincere advice is not, as some may argue, meddling in someone else’s business; rather it is a valuable favor and one of the best forms of charity.
