Don't Look @ People’s Faults as if U are Lords[Eesa ibn Maryam(a.s.]

Bismillaah ar-Rahman ar-Raheem. 

'Assalaamualaykum Wa Rahmatuallahi WaBarakatahu'


  *Look in the Mirror* 

A reminder for myself first and  after that to my fellow Muslimeen.

For surely, the one who looks in the Mirror and is able to see the truth,

 the truth Unadulterated!

has been Blessed. 



Iyaas Ibn Mu'aawiyah{ Rahimahullaah}

 (d.122H)– said:-


 "There is no one who does not know his own faults, except that he is Stupid."


Of course, we have our faults, but the reality is many of us, we do not see them.

Rather, we busy ourselves with the faults of others.

 Perhaps this preoccupation with the mistakes of others

 is to mask our own faults,


and transgressions;

putting the spotlight on their shortcomings and forgetting our own.

 Be it criticism, be it 'Nameemah' [Gossip],

 be it Backbiting,

 the poisons of the Tongue are Rampant.



Perhaps our chief problem lies in the fact that we don't see these faults.

In this respect, one who recognizes their faults has truly been Blessed, for bi'idhnillah now they may remedy them.

But what of the one who is blind to his faults, who looks in the mirror and sees perfection, who doesn't turn back to Allah in Tawbah for he sees nothing wrong with himself ?

And is this not the scarier of the two? SubhaanAllah.


And it is true, that we may dismiss such a notion of ever becoming the latter – that is, one who is heedless, such that he sees no fault within himself – but is it not a possibility I ask, if we do not frequent this mirror, if we go about our daily business without truly looking at our reflection and assessing our character?

And we pray never to be amongst such people.


Let us heed the words of 'Eesa ibn Maryaam {Alayhi Salaam)who said:-

"Do not look at the people's faults as if you are lords,

but look at your own faults as if you are slaves,

 because people are of two types: afflicted and pardoned.

So have mercy on the afflicted and thank Allaah for pardoning you and protecting you from it."

May our trips to this mirror become frequent, through











    My ' Salaams' To All

  "All that is on earth will Perish. But will abide {Forever} 
 the Face of thy Lord, full of Majesty, Bounty and Honour"
 {'Quran'- Surah Al-Rahman-55.26-27 }
Son of Adam! You are nothing but a number of days,
whenever each day passes then part of you has Gone!
{Al-Hasan Al-Basree}

Bismillaah ar-Rahman ar-Raheem.

Wal 'Asr
Innal insaana lafee khusr
Illal ladhenna aamannu
Wa 'amilus saalihaati wa tawaasau bilhaqq
Wa tawaasau bis sabr

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
Time is witness that, surely, mankind suffers loss,
except for those of faith,
Who do good, and become a model of truthful living,
and together practice patience and constancy.

Al-'Asr (Time)Surah # 103
