Quran Stories: Luqman the Wise


The Story of Luqman the Wise

Luqman was a pious man who Allah (swt) blessed with much wisdom. He was reminded to be thankful to Allah, the Almighty.

And We had certainly given Luqman wisdom [and said], “Be grateful to Allah .” And whoever is grateful is grateful for [the benefit of] himself. And whoever denies [His favor] – then indeed, Allah is Free of need and Praiseworthy.[Quran, 31:12]

Luqman advised his son using the best of words and in regards to life in general. How? From the example of his faith, his treatment of parents and other people, and his consciousness of Allah (swt). His words to his son carry important messages for Muslim youth and to all of mankind.

There are many profound lessons found in the advice of a loving father to his dear son. [Quran, 31:12-19]. Consider them as advice to you from a father figure and a great mentor!

Lessons from the Advice of Luqman to his Son

Believe in Allah (swt) alone & remain firm upon Tawheed. Luqman warned his son against joining partners in worship with Allah – shirk, because it is the greatest form of injustice man can commit. You must commit to Tawheed (oneness of Allah – SWT) in all of your words and actions. That is the greatest form of justice you can uphold.

Maintain an excellent attitude towards parents. Honour your parents, be kind to them and take care of them even if they are not Muslims. Your obedience should only end when they invite you to join others in worship with Allah (swt).

Guard all acts of worship with patience. You will be tested with your personal worship and in dealing with others, so learn to be patient. Perform your prayers correctly and at the appointed time. Enjoin the right, and forbid the wrong.

Be kind to yourself and others. Nothing is hidden from Allah, so beware of doing wrong to others in even the simplest of ways. Do not be loud arrogant and boastful. And always strive to be moderate in your walk and talk.

love? Why would the doctor tell you there is no
solution or cure to your problems? Why would
your lawyer say you stand no chance, that your
case is hopeless? Have you been cheated by
anyone or those owing you money refuse to pay
back? Do you need a rapid job promotion in
