فَلَوْلَا كَانَ مِنَ الْقُرُونِ مِن قَبْلِكُمْ أُولُو بَقِيَّةٍ يَنْهَوْنَ عَنِ الْفَسَادِ فِي الْأَرْضِ إِلَّا قَلِيلًا مِّمَّنْ أَنجَيْنَا مِنْهُمْ ۗ وَاتَّبَعَ الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا مَا أُتْرِفُوافِيهِ وَكَانُوا مُجْرِمِينَ ﴿١١٦﴾
So why were there not among the generations before you those of enduring discrimination forbidding corruption on earth - except a few of those We saved from among them? But those who wronged pursued what luxury they were given therein, and they were criminals. (11:116). https://tanzil.net/#trans/en.sahih/11:116
وَالَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا بَعْضُهُمْ أَوْلِيَاءُ بَعْضٍ ۚ إِلَّا تَفْعَلُوهُ تَكُن فِتْنَةٌ فِي الْأَرْضِ وَفَسَادٌ كَبِيرٌ( ٨:٧٣ )
And those who disbelieved are allies of one another. If you do not do so, there will be fitnah on earth and great corruption. (8:73)
Once I wrote to the management of a chain store about the type of magazines they place in the checkout lanes. I asked them to have a G-lane which children and people who do not want to see vulgarity can use and have THEIR FREEDOM too. After all, you want your store for all. Don’t you? Where is my freedom? And by the way, how come you close your stores nationwide on religious holidays and yet you disobey God by selling profanity? Is that not hypocrisy?
It so happened that while I was working on a project in a building with cubical offices, a person had a phone call. Even though he was at a far end, his loud voice could be heard by everyone in the building. That was fine except that his conversation became profane. I went out of the building for a while to let him finish. Eventually, I met the department head and we talked about work ethics and asked her if she can take care of the issue and she did.
Just as I am required to take time off from work to pray my Jumuah prayer and five daily prayers, I am required to leave a gathering or a conversation which is vulgar, obscene, immoral and ungodly. My employer must respect it.
