82. The Status of the Muslim Community

(كُنْتُمْ خَيْرَ أُمَّةٍ أُخْرِجَتْ لِلنّاسِ تَأْمُرُونَ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَتَنْهَوْنَ عَنِ الْمُنكَرِ وَتُؤْمِنُونَ بِاللَّهِ وَلَوْ آمَنَ أَهْلُ الْكِتابِ لَكانَ خَيْراً لَهُم مِنْهُمُ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ وَأَكْثَرُهُمُ الْفاسِقُونَ) .1

"You are the best nation [ever] brought forth for mankind: you bid what is right and forbid what is wrong and have faith in Allah. And if the people of the Book had believed, it would have been better for them. Among them some are faithful, but most of them are transgressors." 2

262.رسولُ اللَّهِ صلى اللَّه عليه وآله : اُمّتي اُمّةٌ مُبارَكَةٌ، لا يُدْرى‏ أوَّلُها خَيْرٌ أو آخِرُها خَيْرٌ .3

263.The Prophet (SAWA) said, 'This community of mine is a nation compassioned upon by Allah.' 6

264.The Prophet (SAWA) said, 'Surely you complete seventy communities, of which you are the best and the most honoured before Allah.' 8
