Qur'an - The Chambers:49

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لا يَسْخَرْ قَوْمٌ مِّن قَوْمٍ عَسَى أَن يَكُونُوا خَيْرًا مِّنْهُمْ وَلا نِسَاء مِّن نِّسَاء عَسَى أَن يَكُنَّ خَيْرًا مِّنْهُنَّ وَلا تَلْمِزُوا أَنفُسَكُمْ وَلا تَنَابَزُوا بِالأَلْقَابِ بِئْسَ الاِسْمُ الْفُسُوقُ بَعْدَ الإِيمَانِ وَمَن لَّمْ يَتُبْ فَأُولَئِكَ هُمُ الظَّالِمُونَ{11}

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اجْتَنِبُوا كَثِيرًا مِّنَ الظَّنِّ إِنَّ بَعْضَ الظَّنِّ إِثْمٌ وَلا تَجَسَّسُوا وَلا يَغْتَب بَّعْضُكُم بَعْضًا أَيُحِبُّ أَحَدُكُمْ أَن يَأْكُلَ لَحْمَ أَخِيهِ مَيْتًا فَكَرِهْتُمُوهُ وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ إِنَّ اللَّهَ تَوَّابٌ رَّحِيمٌ{12}

يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ إِنَّا خَلَقْنَاكُم مِّن ذَكَرٍ وَأُنثَى وَجَعَلْنَاكُمْ شُعُوبًا وَقَبَائِلَ لِتَعَارَفُوا إِنَّ أَكْرَمَكُمْ عِندَ اللَّهِ أَتْقَاكُمْ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلِيمٌ خَبِيرٌ{13}

11. O ye who believe! Let not some men among you laugh at others: it may be that the (latter) are better than the (former): nor let some women laugh at others: it may be that the (latter are better than the (former): nor defame nor be sarcastic to each other, nor call each other by (offensive) nicknames: lll-seeming is a name connoting wickedness, (to be used of one) after he has believed: and those who do not desist are (indeed) doing wrong.

12. O ye who believe! Avoid suspicion as much (as possible) for suspicion in some cases is a sin: and spy not on each other, nor speak ill of each other behind their backs. Would any of you like to eat the flesh of his dead brother? Nay, ye would abhor it…But fear Allah, for Allah is Oft- Returning, Most Merciful.

13. O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that ye may know each other (not that ye may despise each other) verily the most honored of you in the sight of Allah is (he who is) the most righteous of you. And Allah has full knowledge and is well acquainted (with all things)

Nasheed: Tala'a Lbadru Alayna

طلع البدر علينا (ديني)

طلع البدر علينا .. من ثنيات الوداع

وجب الشكر علينا .. مادعي لله داع

ايها المبعوث فينا .. جئت بالامر المطاع

طلع البدر نبيا .. ورسولا عربيا

ينشر القرآن نورا .. وضياءا قدسيا

ولكم بتنا حياري .. وارتقبناه مليا

فبدا اليوم جليا .. من ثنيات الوداع

طلع البدر علينا ومن النور ارتوينا

برسول الله قري ياربا يثرب عينا

هبة الله الينا من يفي لله دينا

وجب الشكر علينا مادعى لله داع

طلع البدر علينا من ثنيات الوداع

وجب الشكر علينا مادعي لله داع

ايها المبعوث فينا جئت بالامر المطاع

طلع البدر مبينا رحمة للعالمينَ

وبشيرا ونذيرا منقذا دنيا ودينا

نحن بالله هدينا واستجبنا فحيينا

ايها المبعوث فينا جئت بالامر المطاع

طلع البدر علينا من ثنيات الوداع
O the white moon rose over us
From the valley of Vida thus

وجب الشكر علينا ما دعى لله داع
Gratefulness is compulsory for us to show
Where the inviter is towards Allah anyhow
أيها المبعوث فينا جئت بالأمر المطاع
O you who were raised amongst us in such way
Came with the command for us to obey
جئت شرفت المدينة مرحبا يا خير داع
You have brought to this city nobleness I say
The excellent inviter towards God’s way
