Go Easy..

One thing we got to change in ourselves strongly is to stop finding faults with others all the time. Nobody is perfect NEITHER OTHERS, NOR WE.

She/he talks like that, walks like that, uses this or that, says something and do something,

...spend a lot, shop a lot, waste a lot, eat a lot, facebooking all the time, watches movies, listens to music, do not train their kids well,

...wears this /that, too rich, too poor, too female, too male, too white, too non-white, too much status, not enough status,

...being too smart, or not smart enough, too tall, too short, too fat, too skinny….

The list goes on and is really endless.

GO EASY….On yourself too and on others too. Let’s stop wasting time always finding faults about others. We rarely say good about others.

Let’s keep a firm check on our tongue not to criticize any Muslim brother or sister of ours.

(Excerpt from an article in FB)


The Quran has commanded believers to refrain from such utterances and statements that may sow enmity and discord among the family or society members. It says:

“Say to My servants that they should only say those things that are best, for Satan does sow dissensions among them, for Satan is to man an avowed enemy.” (Al-Quran, Sura Israa, 17:53)

“O you who believe! Avoid much suspicion, in deed some suspicions are sins. And spy not, neither backbite one another. Would one of you like to eat the flesh of his dead brother? You would hate it (so hate backbiting). And fear Allah, verily, Allah is the one who accepts repentance, Most Merciful.” (Al-Quran, Surah Hujrat, 49:12)

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) has been reported saying: "Whoever protects his tongue from unlawful utterances and guards his private parts from illegal sexual relations, I shall guarantee him entrance into the Paradise." (Sahih Bukhari: Hadith No 6109)

While, at another place the Prophet (peace be upon him) is asked: “Who is the best Muslim? The Messenger of Allah replied: “He is the one from the evils of whose tongue and hands people are safe." (Sunan Nasai: Hadith No 11726)

"Do you know what backbiting is?" They said, "Allah and His Messenger know best." He then said, "It is to say something about your brother that he would dislike." Someone asked him, "But what if what I say is true?" The Messenger of Allah said, "If what you say about him is true, you are backbiting him, but if it is not true then you have slandered him." (Sahih Muslim: Haidth No 2589).
