Virtues & Vices of Pre-Islamic Arabia
Their virtues and vices are as is the case with every civilization, each has good people and bad people. Every civilization had good traditions and customs while at the same time has evil norms.
The Arabs were known for their courage, hospitality, freedom fondness, and loyalty to the clan.
But these same traits practiced in excess led to their degeneration. Courage turned into brutality. Manliness was defined in the number of tribes plundered. Outcasts were sometimes murdered. Their love for liberty made them hate another tribe’s crime while ignoring theirs. Their loyalty to the tribe made them stagnant; they couldn’t practice what the tribe didn’t sanction.
