*A Significant Islamic ruling for building a peaceful society*
Islam prevents from the actions which are stumbling blocks for bringing peace in society and commands to accept such actions which bring peace harmony and halcyon days in society ,as it is mentioned in the Holy Quran that if today we follow the commandments of Allah Almighty ,our society would become a peace loving society, because generally the conflict and collision take place in our society as someone gets misinformed about something , he becomes furious , then instead of asserting it, he commits such an act which only brings him guilt and remorse in his whole life .
Similarly we have family conflicts being dealt in same manner, weather it is a case of mother in law and daughter in law or a case of husband and wife,we start disputing without collecting our thoughts. It’s strongly interdicted in the Holy Quran : یٰۤاَیُّهَا الَّذِیْنَ اٰمَنُوْۤا اِنْ جَآءَكُمْ فَاسِقٌۢ بِنَبَاٍ فَتَبَیَّنُوْا
O believers ! If some corrupt brings you any news, then investigate it .Interpreters say about the horoscope of this verse that Prophet( Peace be upon him) sent Hazrat Waleed bin Okba to Bani Mustalaq to bring alms.They used to have grudge against each other in the period of ignorance. Since he was sent by prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him )many of them came out to welcome him but when Hazrat Waleed saw them coming, he thought that they are coming to assassinate him due to old hostility ,so he got back and according to his imagination, he told the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) that they refused to pay almoner and they were about to assassinate me. Prophet Muhammad ( Peace be upon him) sent Hazrat Khalid bin Waleed to examine the situation, he found them reciting Adhan,prforming Slah as well as they had no qualms about paying off alms. Hazrat Khalid bin Waleed took the alms to Prophet Muhammad and described everything , then this verse was revealed .
Note: although the reason of the Verse to be revealed was Hazrat Waleed’s incident , but it doesn’t mean that Hazrat Waleed was corrupt, we can’t even imagine about him like that, he was one of the great companion of prophet Muhammad ( peace be upon him). The verse was revealed as other verses to introduce a general rule : “don’t make decision about anything until you examine”.
