Voicing one’s opinion is an essential right that cannot be ignored. We all have our own viewpoints which spring from our own convictions and interests which commonly differ from one to another. Thus, our readiness to hear each other and our respect to their thoughts is the best way to get a coherent and integrated community.
Almighty God taught us the importance of listening to others’ view and respecting their own views, despite that He (Glory be to Him) already knew what was inside them and what they are going to pronounce but He listened to the Angels who were initially disagree with the view of man’s existence on the earth. Almighty Allah clarified for them that He has created man for sublime goals they knew nothing about. God says,
And [mention, O Muhammad], when your Lord said to the angels, “Indeed, I will make upon the earth a successive authority.” They said, “Will You place upon it one who causes corruption therein and sheds blood, while we declare Your praise and sanctify You?” Allah said, “Indeed, I know that which you do not know.” (Al-Baqarah 2:31)
Then, the Qur’an carries on narrating the full dialogue that took place between Almighty Allah and the Angels in which God gave them clear-cut proofs on His action. What we mean here is we have to learn from this situation how to observe the etiquette of giving one’s opinion by both parties of the dialogue, no matter one agrees or disagrees with them.
In the below video, brother Nouman Khan talks about the etiquette of voicing one’s opinion which he deduced from the Glorious Qur’an. Enjoy watching this video to know much about the Islamic consideration of the other and the importance to respect their views even if one is dissenting with them.
