Words of Wisdom by Luqman

117 comments

Wisdom provides us with the capacity to solve real life problems. So, acquiring wisdom becomes a must if we want to live meaningful lives. As we live through life and its experiences, it is vital that we reflect on such experiences to make our subsequent steps in life easier. As Immanuel Kant, a famous philosopher said that “Science is organized knowledge. Wisdom is organized life.”

So, if wisdom enables a person to make more sound decisions, take a shortcut path to success, recalibrate values for the better, and simply live a better life, then why not spend time reflecting on our own experiences as well as learning from others? As Will Durant, a renowned philosopher and Pulitzer Prize winner stated, “A wise man can learn from another man’s experience; a fool cannot learn even from his own.”

The words of the Quran and teachings of our Prophet Muhammad guide us to a wealth of wisdom and knowledge. In fact, Allah calls Quran the “Book of wisdom” in many places in the Quran. He says: “A.L.R. These are the ayats of the Book of wisdom.” (Yunus, Chapter #10, Verse #1). The Almighty also says: “We have sent it down as an Arabic Quran, in order that ye may learn wisdom.” (Yusuf, Chapter #12, Verse #2)

Quran emphasizes the importance of wisdom throughout its text. Allah sent prophets and messengers to propagate that wisdom. He says in one of such verses: “A similar (favor have ye already received) is that We have sent among you a Messenger of your own, rehearsing to you Our Signs, and sanctifying you, and instructing you in Scripture and wisdom, and in new knowledge.” (Al-Baqara, Chapter #2, Verse #151)”

In its text, Quran also teaches wisdom through the words of a person named Luqman. Although not a prophet, Allah had granted him enormous wisdom. He was wise enough to have an entire chapter named after him. He was a pious person and according to the Quran was granted wisdom by Allah. As Allah says in the Quran: And indeed We bestowed upon Luqman AlHikmah (wisdom and religious understanding, etc.) saying: “Give thanks to Allah,” and whoever gives thanks, he gives thanks for (the good of) his ownself. And whoever is unthankful, then verily, Allah is All Rich (Free of all wants), Worthy of all praise. (Luqman: 12)

In his book “Stories of the Prophet”, Ibn Katheer writes that Luqman’s real name was known as “Luqman Ibn Anqa8 Ibn Sadun” or according to some “Luqman Ibn Tharan” who was from among the people of Aylah (Jerusalem) (Stated by As-Suhaili from Ibn Jarir and Al-Qutaibi). Some accounts describe him as an Ethiopian slave who worked as a carpenter. Because of his wisdom people went to him to settle their affairs and therefore he was also known to be a judge.

Although Quran makes no reference regarding him being as a prophet, it is narrated by some as described by Ibn Katheer in his book “Stories of the Prophet” that he was offered to become one. Ibn Katheer mentions, Sa’id said: I heard Qatadah as saying: It was said to Luqman: “How did you prefer wisdom to Prophethood when you were enabled to choose between them?” He said: “If Allah were to assign me with Prophethood, I would accept it and try hard to win His Pleasure, but He enabled me to choose. I feared of being too weak for Prophethood, so I chose wisdom.”

Luqman’s Wisdom

The following are the words of wisdom of Luqman as described in the Quran. Later, another section quotes his wisdom as narrated by other reliable narrators as mentioned by Ibn Katheer in his book “Stories of the Prophets”.

Luqman’s wisdom in the Quran

Luqman’s wisdom in the Quran is described in the context of him explaining it to his son. It is described in the Quran in the following verses.

And (remember) when Luqman said to his son when he was advising him: “O my son! Join not in worship others with Allah. Verily! Joining others in worship with Allah is a great Zoolm (wrong) indeed. (Quran: Luqman: 13)

  • Being dutiful to ones parents

And We have enjoined on man (to be dutiful and good) to his parents. His mother bore him in weakness and hardship upon weakness and hardship, and his weaning is in two years give thanks to Me and to your parents, unto Me is the final destination. (Quran: Luqman: 14)

  • Being dutiful to ones parents except where they tell you to deviate from the Right path –

But if they (both) strive with you to make you join in worship with Me others that of which you have no knowledge, then obey them not, but behave with them in the world kindly, and follow the path of him who turns to Me in repentance and in obedience. Then to Me will be your return, and I shall tell you what you used to do. (Quran: Luqman: 15)

  • Every person is accountable for everything that he does –

“O my son! If it be (anything) equal to the weight of a grain of mustard seed, and though it be in a rock, or in the heavens or in the earth, Allah will bring it forth. Verily, Allah is Subtle (in bringing out that grain), WellAware (of its place). (Quran: Luqman: 16)

 

 

  • Enjoining Prayers

“O my son! perform AsSalat (prayers), enjoin (people) for Al-Maroof (Islamic Monotheism and all that is good), and forbid (people) from AlMunkar (i.e. disbelief in the Oneness of Allah, polytheism of all kinds and all that is evil and bad), and bear with patience whatever befalls you. Verily! These are some of the important commandments ordered by Allah with no exemption. (Quran: Luqman: 17)

  • Do not be arrogant and proud

“And turn not your face away from men with pride, nor walk in insolence through the earth. Verily, Allah likes not each arrogant boaster. (Quran: Luqman: 18)

  • Be humble and lower your voice

“And be moderate (or show no insolence) in your walking, and lower your voice. Verily, the harshest of all voices is the voice (braying) of the donkey.”  (Quran: Luqman: 19)

 

Other words of wisdom from Luqman (not narrated in the Quran) [ibn Katheer]

  • Luqman on being granted respect and honor

Narrated Ibn Wahb: I was told by ‘Abdullah Ibn ‘Ayyash Al-Fityani after’ Umar, the freed slave of ‘Afrah as saying: “A man came to Luqman, the wise and asked: Are you Luqman? Are you the slave of so and so? He said: “Yes!” The man said: You are the black shepherd! Luqman said: As for my black color, it is obviously apparent, so what makes you so astonished? The man said: You became frequently visited by the people who pleasingly accept your judgments! Luqman said: 0 cousin! If you do what I am telling you, you will be like this. The man said: What is it? Luqman said: Lowering my gaze, watching my tongue, eating what is lawful, keeping my chastity, undertaking my promises, fulfilling my commitments, being hospitable to guests, respecting my neighbors, and discarding what does not concern me. All these made me the one you are looking at.”

Lowering of the gaze usually refers to not looking at men / women (other than your spouse) with a bad desire and to look at them only for valid reasons as prescribed in the religion. Refer to Islam-qa.com for detailed explanation on this topic.

  • Luqman on the value of Wisdom

Narrated Damurah after As-Sariy Ibn Yahia as saying: Luqman said to his son: “O my son! Verily, wisdom has brought the indigent to the courts of kings. ”

  • Luqman on propagating wisdom to others and to take it seriously when given by others

I was told by my father after ‘Amr Ibn ‘Uthman after Damurah Ibn Hafs Ibn ‘Umar as saying: “Luqman placed a bag of mustards beside him and started to advise his son, giving him with every piece of advice a mustard till it all ran out. He said: O my son! I gave you advice that if a mountain was given, it would split………”

  • Luqman on the need to have a pleasing tongue and sound heart

Yazid Ibn Hamn and Waki’ told us after Abul AShhab after Khalid Ar-Rab’i as saying: “Luqman was an Ethiopian slave who worked as a carpenter. One day, his master ordered him to slaughter a goat and bring him the most pleasant and delicious two parts thereof. Luqman did so and brought him the tongue and heart. The master asked: Did not you find anything more pleasant than these? Luqman said: No! After a while, the master ordered him to slaughter a goat and to throw the most malignant two parts thereof. Luqman slaughtered the goat and threw the tongue and heart. The master exclaimed and said: I ordered you to bring me the most delicious parts thereof and you brought me the tongue and heart, and I ordered you to throwaway the most malignant parts thereof and you threw the tongue and heart, how can this be? Luqman said: Nothing can be more pleasing than these if they were good, and nothing can be more malicious than these if they were malignant.”

  • Luqman on “Speech is silver and slince is golden”

 

Luqman said to his son: “O my son! I have never regretted because of keeping silent. If words are silver, silence is golden.”

  • Luqman on the need to have kindness, mercy and love for others

Abu Mu’awiyah told us after Hisham Ibn ‘Urwah after his father as saying: “Wisdom dictates: O my son: Let your speech be good and your face be smiling, you will be more loved by the people than those who give them provisions.” And, he said: “It is stated in the wisdom -or the Torah – : “Kindness is the head of wisdom.” And, he said: “It is stated in the Torah: “As you show mercy (to others), mercy will be shown to you.”

  • Luqman on giving

And, he said: “It is stated in the wisdom: “You will gain what you give (or, harvest what you grow).”

  • Luqman on friendships

And, he said: “It is stated in the wisdom: “Love your friend and the friend of your father.”

  • Luqman on patience, knowledge, and goodness

`Abdur Razzaq told us after Mu’amir after Ayyub after Abu Qulabah as saying: Luqman was once asked: Who is the best one in terms of patience? He said: It is the one who practices no harm after observing patience. Those who asked him said: Who is the best one in terms of knowledge? He said: It is he who adds to his own knowledge through the knowledge of others. They asked: Who is the best from among the whole people? He said: It is the wealthy. They said: Is it the one who has properties and riches? He said: No! But, it is the one if whose good was sought, he would not hold it back or prevent it. And, it is the one who does not need anything from others.

  • Luqman on the need to keep good company and to consult scholars

‘Abdullah Ibn Ahmed said: I was told by Al-­Hakam Ibn Abu Zuhair Ibn Musa after Al-Faraj Ibn Fudalah after Abu Sa’id as saying: Luqman said to his son: “O my son! Let only the pious men eat your food, and consult the scholars over your affairs.”

Finally, wisdom in matters is one of the blessings that Allah grants to His creation. The Almighty says in the Quran: “He grants Hikmah to whom He pleases, and he, to whom Hikmah is granted, is indeed granted abundant good. But none remember (will receive admonition) except men of understanding.” (Quran: Al-Baqara: 269)

Note: Hikmah here refers to “Wisdom”

7 JAMSHEED BASHA

I am really pleased with the information and wisdom of Hazrat Luqman. I read them with so much sincerity that I decided to adopt all of them in my life, hereafter. I perhaps made several mistakes in life; I wonder whether Allah would ever forgive my sins. I pray daily for his forgiveness. I am really moved and feel that why I did not refer to such advises earlier. Anyway late is better than never. I always believe, every saint has a past and every sinner has a future. Allah loves all those who seek His forgiveness. Inshallah this email alone would be a turning point in my life and I decided to lead a pious life hereafter following the great words of wisdom of our Prophet Mohammed PBUH and Hazrath Luqman as narrated by Allah Subhanatala in the Holy Quran. I wish all our Muslims brethren, if they follow such words of wisdom, would be successful in this life and hereafter. Aamin.

There is a saying in our community- that is, “people said to Luqman Alhikma that whom from you have learnt politeness, he said to them, he learnt it from those of impolite; people asked them again- how? He said, I avoided whatever bad deeds I noticed from others, and I intentionally practiced their good deeds.”

Assalam. This has been a great lesson to me throughout my life. I do remember when I was little, I was taken to the masjid by my late father(rahimahu Allah) and the khutba on that Friday was about Luqman. Even though I was little, the imam did a good job in explaining the message(s) in this surat to the point where as I was walking back home with my father, I started thinking about my “way of walking” and connected it with what the verse says” wala tamshi fil ardi maraha’ inna Allaha la yuhibu kulla mukhtalin fakhoor”. There, I learnt to walk with humility and not to be boastful and full of wrong pride. I learnt to humble myself and be straight in my walk physically and spiritually. I remember my father was explaining this point to me on the way back home from the masjid. He was like Luqman to me if I may say so. May Allah be merciful to him “wa qul rabee irhamhuma kama rabayani sagheera”. I try to make dua’a for him after each prayer.
Surat Luqman represents Muslim education to me. It is beautiful, beautiful, and beautiful. I recite it whenever I am driving! I don’t know why!

Oh yes! The Holy Book of Allah which spoke about the foetus in a Mother’s womb and its step by step development inside that dark place, the galaxies, the big bang, cannot but bring us the truth of this present life, before and after-lives…

The examples of Luqman in Quran are many, Syedna KHIDR is another example…

A truly inspirational article. Simple attributes of wisdom so easily achieved;being dutiful to parents is a first and foremost act of wisdom while remembering, speech is silver, and silence is golden. How many times have we stopped to reflect on some of these attributes? Just think how more meaningful our lives will be.

Jazak allah kheyrun to all involved with posting this inspiring ariticle. Inshallah you’ll be rewarded for your effort.

The article was thought-provoking in that most of these good manners of speech are practiced in Western schools and Universities and now wonder they are so successful.

People today find it very hard to control the tongue, lower the gaze, fullfil their promises and yet we think we are happy and can do entertainment and be successfull in life……………….!

I think most important point is that we are responsible for our actions!!!

This is my prayer to all muslims because if we compare the message to the behaviour of present day muslims, there is no doubting the fact that unless Allah forgives us, it might be difficult to make al-jannah.

In todays troubled times, muslims have to ensure they follow the advice Allah (SWT) has given us in the Quran.
This chapter of the Quran (Surah Lukman) is one such advice Muslims must adhere to and feverishly propagate to non-muslims.

Asslamualikum, Jazakallah Khair for your hard work. The article about Luqman is very challenging. The two best or bad in our body system are the tongue and the heart. we can control them or they control us. Being patient and giving to others without waiting for any return. Being patient in our daily life, not only when we get angry. Finding more knowledge leads you knowledgeable as Luqman said. Inform us with this kind of hadith. May Allah gives wisdom to all muslims. Ameen

How do u forget to mention of the greatest wisdom as read in Luqman:12, saying: “Give thanks to Allah,” and whoever gives thanks, he gives thanks for (the good of) his ownself. And whoever is unthankful, then verily, Allah is All Rich (Free of all wants), Worthy of all praise. (Luqman: 12)

This is the greatest secret and wisdom as told to Luqman.May Allah make us to benefit from it

May allah in His infinite mercies bless you for these golden principles you avail us. Failure to imbibe these principles will definitely be at one’s detriment. I however pray almighty Allah to grant us the patience and the benefit of these principles (Ameen)

As-salaam alaykum,

I would like to thank you for such a wonderful thing you are doing. As a fairly new Muslim convert I have been struggling to gain more knowledge and wisdom from the Noble Qur’an (no mosque where I live); your bringing the beautiful blessings of Allah, Phophet Mohammad (PBUH) and now Luqman have given me new insights into my life as a Muslim and my upcoming marriage to a wonderful and wise Muslim man!…….Salaam!.

Dear AWW
JAK, It is excellent article. The point is the temporary Muslim society should bring back this wisdom bcs there is saying
” Wisdom is the lost property of the muslim and whenever he finds it is for him.”

Nothing seems to be easier than seeing someone whom you can help but not helping.
I suggest we start giving it a try. Give love to the ones that need it.
God will appreciate it.
