Enjoining what is right and forbidding what is wrong are two important Islamic requisites from the Quran, "you enjoin what is right and forbid what is reprehensible", are considered positive roles in helping others to take the straight path and abstain from reprehensible acts. This expression is the base of the Islamic institution of hisbah, it forms a central part of the Islamic doctrine for all Muslims. It is explicitly referred to in two Ancillaries of the Faith in Shia Islam, commanding what is just and forbidding what is evil. Sura 3.104 translated by Abdullah Yusuf AliLet there arise out of you a band of people inviting to all, good, enjoining what is right, forbidding what is wrong: They are the ones to attain felicity.alternative translation: Let there arise out of you a nation who invites to goodness and enjoin What is right and forbid What is evil: They are the one's to attain felicity. Sura 3.110 translated by Abdullah Yusuf AliYe are the best of peoples, evolved for mankind, enjoining what is right, forbidding what is wrong, believing in Allah.
If only the People of the Book had faith, it were best for them: among them are some who have faith, but most of them are transgressors.alternative translation: You are the best community, raised up for mankind: You enjoin What is right and forbid What is evil, You believe in Allah. Other examples include: Sura 9, v.71 Sura 9, v.112 Sura 31, v.17 Abu Sa‘id al-Khudri reported that the prophet Muhammad said, "Whoever amongst you sees an evil, he must change it with his hand. If he is not able to do so with his tongue, and if he is not able to do so with his heart, and, the weakest form of faith". A standard medieval interpretation of this Hadith is, as Al-Nawawi had explained, that such passages of scripture had to be interpreted in accordance with established Shariah principles, such as the state's sole prerogative in declaring jihad.'Changing the reprehensible by hand,' or by compulsion, was the purview of the state alone.'Changing with the tongue' was the right of the ulama. Ordinary, individual Muslims should only reject the reprehensible with their hearts.
A person should have knowledge of what is considered wajib and haram in relation to interpreting the two requisites although in a broad-spectrum. Commanding what is just Rahim, Husein A..
