SHAFAQNA – According to the Holy Quran, there are various reasons for losing dignity and God’s blessings of which the most important ones are outlined below.
- Not caring about orphans; as mentioned in Ayah 17 of Surah Al-Fajr: “No indeed! You (people) do not honour orphans.
- Preventing others to provide food for poor people who are unable to prepare their own food and are in worst kind of poverty as mentioned in Ayah 18 of Surah Al-Fajr: “You do not urge each other to feed the poor.”
- Cheating people out of their inheritance as is mentioned in Ayah 19 of Surah Al-Fajr: “You consume inheritance greedily (your own inheritance and inheritance of others, and do not care it is Haram).”
- Love of wealth as is mentioned in Ayah 20 of Surah Al-Fajr: “And you love wealth with passion.”
According to the Quranic teachings, these elements and similar ones will lead to Divine Blessings being taken away and indignity to replace dignity, and this is due to failure in Divine tests.
