Wouldn't us 'talking in a more islamic manner' include is being friendly to each other, joking about with each other, not holding grudges, not arguing, not taking things too seriously etc etc?
Because if that's the case then we have been doing that. If anyone is talking about stuff it is not in a negative way, it is just general chit chat and nothing aimed to make anyone else feel inferior.
Eugh I don't even think what I wrote makes sense
The generalisation made by johnappleseed was unnecessary, tbf.
Talking in an Islamic manner means:
giving and replying to the salams, which is incumbent upon us, speaking in a pleasing manner, without imitating the low speech of some of the kuffar, yes-not holding grudges is from the deen, speaking of Islamic issues. And so on.
When a brother or sister comes on here and admonishes everybody, it should not illicit an attack or agressive response. We should take the good and leave the bad, and ask Allah to forgive and guide them if they erred. We should reflect on any good points made. For verily what was said eariler was true:
Our beloved Prophet Muhammad (saws) said, "O followers of Muhammad! By Allah, if you knew what I know, you would weep much and laugh little." [Sahih al-Bukhari, Vol. 8, #627]
However, this does not detract from being light-hearted at times, because we all know it creates ease and love between the Ummah, but all etiquette should still be maintained.
