Examine Your Own Faults

May 21, 2015 Comments Off on Examine Your Own Faults

It has been related that ‘Isa ibn Maryam {Peace be upon him} said:

“Do not examine the faults of people as if you were a Lord, but rather examine your own faults as though you were a servant.”

{Muwatta’ of Imam Malik}

Imam Malik {May Allah have Mercy upon him} said: “I have met people here in Madinah who had no faults of their own, but who spoke about other people’s faults, so people found fault with them. I also met here those with many faults but who kept quiet about other people’s fault, so other people kept quiet about theirs.”

{Al-Muntaqa Sharh al-Muwatta’, Volume 2 pg. 300}
