To be one of those people who are successful and got achievements, religion Islam requires that every individual must learn to obey ALLAH Almighty and also treat humankind, animals, our environment, the fellow Muslim with respect. Bearing this in mind that the all Muslims are one unite nation, and if any single part of the nation is in peril or in any kind of danger so too are all its parts, giving respect to each other is very essential. Religion Islam teaches us that we are held answerable and accountable not only for our actions and thoughts but for the influence, we have made over others.

Respect for humanity is staying away from sins and things that will create discord among the people especially among Muslims and lead towards destruction.  Respect involves loving for our brothers and sisters whatever we love for ourselves. Respect also includes treating other peoples the way we expect them to treat us and the way we hope ALLAH Almighty will treat us with love, compassion and mercy.

Major sins create barrier between humanity and cause all the misery, conflicts torment, and evil activities in this world. ALLAH Almighty commands us to stay away from all kind of sin. Evil and bad activities like backbiting and cheating, gossip as these things bring about nothing but disgrace and shame. In present time Backbiting has become so widespread that each and every person uses it as a way of expressing jealousy and anger.  Those who engage in these kinds of false activities are harming others and disobeying ALLAH Almighty. The sin is grave and for this punishment is severe, but ALLAH Almighty is Merciful and always accepts sincere repentance.
