The Importance of Creed and Justice in Surah Al-Mutaffifin: A Scientific Study by Dr. Al-Bara'a

TextDr. Baraa presented a scientific research on "Doctrinal Issues in Surah Al-Mutaffifin." It is worth mentioning that Dr. Baraa obtained his doctoral degree from the university and was subsequently appointed as a member of the faculty at the university.


In his research, Dr. Baraa addressed various aspects, including:

- Belief in doctrinal matters that must be believed in, such as belief in the existence of Allah, belief in His attributes, belief that the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) is the seal of the prophets and messengers. He also discussed belief in predestination, heaven, hell, punishment, and reward, as well as everything mentioned in the Quran and the noble Prophetic tradition.


The importance of creed:

This research emphasizes the importance of maintaining creed as the foundation for the behavior of the Muslim individual in speech and action. Preserving creed is considered key to the comfort and happiness of a person in this world and the Hereafter. Dr. Baraa portrays creed as a lifeboat in times of tribulation, a refuge in times of trials and hardships, making it an important source of security and stability in times of pressures and challenges.


The rule of justice:

Dr. Baraa explained in his research that justice and equality are fundamental in Islam and encompass all aspects of life, not just in matters of buying and selling. Justice should prevail in all social relationships between individuals, whether at work, in governance, daily interactions, or even in slavery, where the master must treat their slave with justice and fairness without any unjust bias.


Doctrinal hidden issues in Surah Al-Mutaffifin:

Dr. Baraa explained that Surah Al-Mutaffifin discusses the Day of Judgment and its reckoning, reward, punishment, paradise, its pleasures, and the greatest pleasure of seeing Allah in it. It also talks about hell, its torment, and its fire. Additionally, it addresses the behavior of Muslims through reminders from the noble recording angels of their words and deeds.


We wish Dr. Baraa continued success and excellence.
