Ahmad Shah Abdali School Schoolrecognizes Islamic values that provide clear guidance to on how people should conduct themselves in their daily lives. A Muslim is advised in the Qur’an to use the best of manners when interacting with others. The root of the word Islam is “peace,” and Muslims are to be peaceful in word and deed, treat people with kindness and mercy, and be tolerant and fair. Hypocrisy is considered to be one of the greatest of sins. Muslims embrace diversity and strive to “walk upon the earth in humility” (Qur’an 25:63).

Equality and Tolerance

Islam teaches equality of all people, regardless of race, ethnicity, or linguistic background. Muslims regard the diversity of life as a sign of the beauty of Allah’s creation: “And among His Signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the variations in your languages and your colors. Verily in that are signs for those who know” (Qur’an 30:22). 

Kindness and Generosity

Muslims must treat everyone with kindness, and to give to others in charity. There are countless stories of Muhammad (PBUH) exhorting the benefits of charity, both for individuals and society at large. In many traditions, Muhammad (PBUH) reminded his followers that the bounties we have in this world do not belong to us, but are a trust from Allah.

Modesty and Humility

Having humility means acting modestly and with respect, avoiding arrogance and boasting. In prayer, Muslims humbly prostrate to the ground, in symbolic recognition that without Allah’s constant guidance and support, people would be lost. The Qur’an advises, “Call on your Lord with humility and in private, for Allah loves not those who transgress beyond bounds” (Qur’an 7:55).

Honesty and Trustworthiness

Believers are described as being truthful and upright; they must keep their promises and fulfill their trusts. “Oh you who believe! Fear Allah and be with those who are truthful” (Qur’an 9:119). Islam considers giving false testimony one of the worst sins committed by people against each other.

Justice and Forgiveness

The Qur’an instructs, “Oh you who believe! Stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allah, as against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin; and whether it be against rich or poor. For Allah can best protect both. Follow not the lusts of your own hearts, lest you swerve, and if you distort justice or decline to do justice, verily Allah is well acquainted with all that you do” (Qur’an 4:135).
