Presentation Transcript


  • “Do not backbite the Muslims or seek their faults, for whoever seeks their faults, then Allah will seek his faults; and if Allah seeks a person’s faults, then He will expose him even in (the privacy of) his house.”


  • “He who removes from a believer one of his difficulties of this world, Allah will remove one of his troubles on the Day of Resurrection; and he who finds relief for a hard-pressed person, Allah will make things easy for him on the Day of Resurrection; he who covers up (the faults and sins) of a Muslim, Allah will cover up (his faults and sins) in this world and in the Hereafter.”


  • “On the day of Qiyaamah Allah shall call a believer to draw near to Him. A curtain shall be drawn so that none may see. Allah shall then remind him of each and every fault of his which he shall be obliged to admit. Seeing the great amount of his faults, that person shall feel that he had indeed failed and shall perish . . .

Judging others
Judging Others

  • A person always compares himself as a standard and finds mistakes in others

  • A person comes to masjid once a day

  • Instead of looking up at others and say I should come more often, he looks at someone and says look at him, he doesn’t even come at all. So I am at least better than that person. We find their faults.
