Qur’an: Mercy in Dealings, and the Consequences of Harshness

Subhana Allah great and timely advice for our Shaykh Faraz Rabbani(May Allah preserve him and may we continute to benefitf rom him). I know full well that I am unworthy to add but I would like to add the following hadith inshaa Allah its of some benefit.

طو بى لمن شغله عيبه عن عيوب النَاس

Blessed is he who is preoccupied with his defects rather than those of people” Related by Bazzar with a good chain of narrators (Bulugh Al-Maram)

(159) It was by the mercy of Allah
that you were easygoing with them (O Muhammad), for if thou hadst been
stern and fierce of heart they would have dispersed from round about
thee. So pardon them and ask forgiveness for them and consult with them
upon the conduct of affairs. And when thou art resolved, then put thy
trust in Allah. Lo! Allah loveth those who put their trust (in Him). (160)
If Allah is your helper none can overcome you, and if He withdraw His
help from you, who is there who can help you? In Allah let believers
put their trust.

These are the characteristics of dealings between believers–between humanity, as a whole…

(1) Being easygoing;
(2) Gentleness, avoiding sternness and harshness;
(3) Being quick to forgive and overlook others’ errors;
(4) Consulting others–and what that entails, such as respecting others’ views and taking them seriously–especially when it comes to community affairs and matters that affect others;
{فَبِمَا رَحْمَةٍ مِّنَ اللّهِ لِنتَ لَهُمْ وَلَوْ
كُنتَ فَظًّا غَلِيظَ الْقَلْبِ لاَنفَضُّواْ مِنْ حَوْلِكَ فَاعْفُ
عَنْهُمْ وَاسْتَغْفِرْ لَهُمْ وَشَاوِرْهُمْ فِي الأَمْرِ فَإِذَا
عَزَمْتَ فَتَوَكَّلْ عَلَى اللّهِ إِنَّ اللّهَ يُحِبُّ
الْمُتَوَكِّلِينَ (١٥٩) إِن يَنصُرْكُمُ اللّهُ فَلاَ
غَالِبَ لَكُمْ وَإِن يَخْذُلْكُمْ فَمَن ذَا الَّذِي يَنصُرُكُم مِّن
بَعْدِهِ وَعَلَى اللّهِ فَلْيَتَوَكِّلِ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ

The people of knowledge are the heirs of the Prophets and and they inherit knowledge. The one who takes knowledge is taking an ample share. And if someone travels a path in quest of knowledge, Allah will make his path to the Garden
