What is cruelty according to our religion and Islam?. One of the most common words in the Quran is cruelty. Cruelty, which means transgression, torture, shirk and suffering, is seen as a great injustice.
Persecution does not occur only through violence. Denying a person’s rights, doing injustice to a person, usurping his property, committing treason is also a kind of cruelty. Not recognizing the existence and oneness of Allah is also expressed as cruelty. By not following Allah’s orders, a person turns into a person who is cruel to himself.
What is Persecution?
What is Persecution?: Islamic scholars have divided oppression into three different categories.
One of them is persecution against Allah.
This is shirk. The following is stated in the time of Luqman: “Surely, shirk is a great cruelty…” Those who commit shirk against Allah cannot be forgiven. They are in eternal hell. Except for those who repent before they die and believe in tawhid…
The second persecution is It is the oppression of man against man. In fact, the first thing that comes to mind when it comes to cruelty is the crimes committed by people against people.
Murder is one of the greatest cruelties. Actions done with the aim of harming the honor, property and life of people are considered cruelty. The religion of Islam is very hostile to acts that cause harm in this way. penalties has appointed.
The third type of persecution is It is cruelty to one’s own soul. This happens by not listening to Allah’s orders and prohibitions and not recognizing the limits set by him. Doing so harms one’s faith and seriously harms both the world and the hereafter.
Therefore, a person wrongs his soul. A believer is one who avoids all kinds of cruelty and protects himself from injustice. It is cruelty for a Muslim to do injustice for personal gain.
False testimonies, injustices and injustices made in order to protect a close relative are also cruelty.
Verses about Persecution
Bad character: Protective approaches against those who do injustice and cruelty are a situation that hurts and disturbs the conscience of many people. It is a fact that takes place in Allah’s order that reckoning is left in the Hereafter and that the oppressors do not receive the punishment they deserve in this world.
Because the following is stated in verse 48 of the Hajj period: “There were many countries that I gave them a respite while they were persecuting. I finally caught them. The return is only to me…”
Allah gives respite to the oppressors and expects them to repent. However, the oppression of the oppressor will never be with him and I will suffer a painful torment in the Hereafter. In this respect, a believer must know the saying “Allah neglects, does not neglect” and acts by taking this into account.

Surely, he is the one who accepts repentance and is merciful.
