Always be kind to people


We all know atleast one person who has left Islam or left practicing Islam or have taken their hijaab off because of someone's tongue.

Someone somewhere said something so harsh, derogatory and insensitive that it flipped a believers heart.

And that is why we have such stringent ahadith about tongue and how we make use of our tongues.

Reading some of these ahadith may scare us. The punishments concerning tongue may seem way too harsh. But when you compare that with the reality of people leaving the fold of Islam, you understand Allah's wisdom and admonishment behind it's guarded usage and the importance of staying silent when angry, upset or on edge.

❄ “Talk to people a little and talk to your Almighty Lord often, for perhaps your heart will see Allah Almighty.”
- Mu’adh ibn Jabal رضي الله عنه
[al-Risālah al-Qushayrīyah 1/248]

Always be kind to people.
Always encourage.
Always speak words that are sweet.
Always show people their talents.
Always highlight the goodness a loved one has forgotten to see.
Always be someone's hype person.

📚 “Whoever restrains his tongue, Allah Almighty will cover his faults. Whoever controls his anger, Allah Almighty will protect him from His punishment. Whoever apologizes to Allah Almighty, He will accept his apology.”
- Prophet Muhammad ﷺ
[al-Ṣamt li Ibn Abī Dunyā 21]

The world we live in is filled with those who criticise, those who pass snarky comments, those who hate you for no reason. Be the light in this dark world.

📚 "Make things easy for the people, and do not make it difficult for them, and make them calm (with glad tidings) and do not repulse (them)."
- Prophet Muhammad ﷺ
[Sahih Bukhari]
