Overall meaning : Believers, men should not mock other men, for it may well be that those they mock are better and of greater worth than themselves in Allah’s sight; nor should any women mock other women, for it may well be that those they mock are better and of greater worth than themselves in Allah’s sight. Do not defame and find fault with one another, nor insult one another by using offensive nicknames your fellow believers dislike. It is an evil thing to be called by a bad name after having embracing the faith. Those who do not repent of such vices are wrongdoers.
Believers, avoid entertaining suspicions about one another, for suspicion in some cases is a sin. Do not spy on one another, nor backbite one another. Would any of you like to eat the flesh of his dead brother?! Surely you would abhor it; if you do, then abhor speaking ill of fellow Muslims in their absence. Fear Allah; Allah is All-Forgiving, All-Merciful.
Mankind! We have created you all from a male and a female, namely Adam and Eve, and We
have made you into nations and tribes in order that you might get to know one another. Truly, the most honourable of you, in the sight of Allah, are the most genuinely God-fearing who obey His commands and avoid what He forbids. Allah is All-knowing, All-Aware.
