Don’t ‘Damned’ others

عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ إِذَا قَالَ الرَّجُلُ هَلَكَ النَّاسُ فَهُوَ أَهْلَكُهُمْ

From Abu Hurairah, who narrated that the Prophet SAW said: “When someone says: ‘Damn the people’, then it is actually he who is even more damned than them.” (Hadith narrated in Muslim, No.: 4755)

Moral:

  1. A Muslim must not think ill of and condemn others as the condemnation may return to him.
  2. Our outcome is what is thought of in our minds. If the mind focuses on the negative, then the result is negative.
  3. A Muslim must always remain hopeful and optimistic towards Allah.
  4. A misfortune that has befallen us is not necessarily the work of others. It may even be the result of our own behaviour.
  5. To admit to our failings and ignorances is far more important than to condemn and blame others.
  6. We must strive to admit to our weakness and improve on it, rather than be mired in escapism by constantly blaming others
