Honoring the people of the Quran and the prohibition of annoying them
God Most High says, And he who reveres the rites of God, it is from God fearingness in the heart (Quran, 22:32)
and He who reveres what God has deemed sacred , that is better for him with his Lord (Quran, 22:30)
And lower your wing in kindness to those believers who follow you (Quran, 26:215)
And those who malign believing men and believing women undeservedly ; they bear the guilt of slander and manifest sin (Quran, 33:58).
Abu Musa al-Ash‘ar! (God be pleased with him) stated that the Prophet (God bless him and grant him peace) said, “Exalting God Most High includes giving honor to the gray-haired Muslim, to whomever bears the Quran without exceeding its proper bounds or shunning it, and any person of authority who acts justly.” (Abu Dawud)
‘A’isha (God be pleased with her) said, “The Messenger of God (God bless him and grant him peace) ordered us to treat people according to their due rank.”* (Abu Dawud)
Jabir ibn ‘Abdallah (God be pleased with them both) said that the Prophet (God bless him and grant him peace) would gather two casualties from Uhud and then say, “Which of the two [deceasedl has amassed the most Quran?” If one of them was indicated, he would put him first in the lahd | the portion of the gravesite closest to the Qibla ” (Bukhari)
Abu Hurayra (God be pleased with him) stated that the Prophet (God bless him and grant him peace) said, “Indeed, God Mighty and Glorious says, ‘Whoever shows enmity to a friend of mine, I have declared war upon him.” (Bukhari)
It is established in the Sahihayn that the Prophet (God bless him and grant him peace) said, “Whoever prays the Morning Prayer is under the guardianship of God Most High, and God Most High does not demand of you something that is under His guardianship.”
The two venerable shaykhs, Abu Hanifa and al-Shafi‘ (God Most High have mercy upon them both), said, “If the scholars are not the Friends (Awliya’) of God, then God has no Friends.” The Imam, the hadith master, Abu al-Qasim ibn ‘Asakir (God have mercy upon him) said, “Know, my brother (and may God make you and us suitable for His pleasure, make us among those who fear Him and observe His duty with right observance) that the flesh of scholars is a poison, and God’s custom with those who disparage them is well known: whoever utters defamation regarding the scholars with his tongue, God Most High afflicts him before his death with the death of his heart. And let those who go against His command beware lest an affliction befall the more painful torment (Quran, 24:63).”
