Submitted by Mohamad Nozzi (Singapore), May 29, 2009 at 21:28

Quran 2:83, "And (remember) when We took a covenant from the Children of Israel, (saying): Worship none but Allah (Alone) and be dutiful and good to parents, and to kindred, and to orphans and Al-Masakin (the poor), and speak good to people [i.e. enjoin righteousness and forbid evil, and say the truth about Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم], and perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat), and give Zakat. Then you slid back, except a few of you, while you are backsliders. (Tafsir Al-Qurtubi). "

The lists of good conducts for muslims from this verse:

a) be good to parents;

b) be good to orphans;

c) be good to the poor;

d) do righteousness and forbids evil

There is no strong ground for you to support that Quran teaches evil
