How to argument with others ?


Az-Zukhruf 43:58

وَقَالُوٓا۟ ءَأَٰلِهَتُنَا خَيْرٌ أَمْ هُوَۚ مَا ضَرَبُوهُ لَكَ إِلَّا جَدَلًۢاۚ بَلْ هُمْ قَوْمٌ خَصِمُونَ

And they said, “Are our gods better, or is he?” They did not present the comparison except for [mere] argument. But, [in fact], they are a people prone to dispute.


It was narrated that Abu Umamah said:”The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: ‘No people go astray after having followed right guidance, but those who indulge in disputes.’ Then he recited the Verse: “Nay! But they are a quarrelsome people.'”

Hasan (Darussalam)

Sunan ibn majah   Book 1, Hadith 48

‏ ‏‏It was narrated that Ans bin Malik said:“The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: ‘Whoever gives up telling lies in support of a false claim, a palace will be built for him in the outskirts of Paradise. Whoever gives up argument when he is in the right, a palace will be built from him in the middle (of Paradise). And whoever had good behavior, a palace will be built for him in the highest reaches (of Paradise).'”Hasan (Darussalam)Sunan ibn majah     Book 1, Hadith 51


* The Arabic word Jadd (translated as dispute), in this context, means arguing with falsehood and lies against the truth.
* Allah has sent down the Prophets to separate the truth from falsehood. As a result of their preaching, some people have believed in them while others have stuck to falsehood, even though the truth had been made manifest to them. Even among the believers there are some who are of firm faith while others are weak in faith, thus creating the apprehension that they might go off the track once again.That is why it behooves all of us to continue to pray to Allah for fortitude, so that we remain steadfast in our faith until the last breath.
* The natural course, which is the only right course to adopt for putting an end to the disputes, is to sincerely discuss them with the intention to arrive at the truthh Once the truth of the matter is proved, it must be accepted at all costs.
