commanding good and forbidding evil

عَنْ حُذَيْفَةَ بْنِ الْيَمَانِ، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ ‏ "‏ وَالَّذِي نَفْسِي بِيَدِهِ لَتَأْمُرُنَّ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَلَتَنْهَوُنَّ عَنِ الْمُنْكَرِ أَوْ لَيُوشِكَنَّ اللَّهُ أَنْ يَبْعَثَ عَلَيْكُمْ عِقَابًا مِنْهُ ثُمَّ تَدْعُونَهُ فَلاَ يُسْتَجَابُ لَكُمْ ‏"‏ ‏.‏ قَالَ أَبُو عِيسَى هَذَا حَدِيثٌ حَسَنٌ ‏.‏

Sayyaduna Hudhaifah bin Al-Yaman (رضی اللہ عنہ) narrated that the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said, interpretation of the meaning: "By the One in Whose Hand is my soul! Either you command good and forbid evil, or Allah will soon send upon you a punishment from Him, then you will call upon Him, but He will not respond to you. "

(Sunan tirmidhi, hadith number: 2169, Imam tirmidhi (رحمہ اللہ) has graded it as good narration, darussalam version has graded this hadith as hasan as well.)

Although, keep in mind that abdullah bin abdul rahman ash-hali al-ansaari is lain al-hadith in this narration but due to shawaahid this narration has become authentic or hasan (good), wallahu a'alam.

This narration explains that till the time people would be indulged into amar bil-ma'ruf and nahi anil munkar (commanding good and forbidding evil), there wouldn't be general punishment upon them. But when people leave amar bil ma'ruf and nahi anil munkar then there would be punishment upon people form rabbul a'alamin and then they would make duas but their duas wouldn't be listened or fulfilled, also that if some limited amount of people leave the amr bil ma'ruf and nahi anil munkar totally then such punishment can also come upon them, wallahu a'alam.

We can clearly see that today hardly Muslim ummah indulge themselves into commanding good and forbidding evil. That is why so many of times we feel that our duaas are not accepted. So my request is to please start commanding good and forbidding evil generally in people so that:

1. Allah's punishment stay away from us.
2. And our duaas be accepted by rabbul a'alamin as well.

May Allah guide us on straight path, ameen.
