SOURCE:Commanding right and forbidding wrong

Commanding right and forbidding wrong, or al-amr bi ‘l-maʿruf wa ‘n-nahy ʿan al-munkar, is an Islamic doctrine mentioned in the Qur’an. This expression is the base of the Islamic institution of hisbah. It forms a central part of the Islamic doctrine for all Muslims. It is also explicitly referred to in the two Shi’a Ancillaries of the Faith, commanding what is just and forbidding what is evil.
