Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh. Today's reminder is about what kind of attitude Do you have towards those things that are happening around you in comparison to what's happening inside yourself. Because by very nature, everybody has mistakes. Everybody has errors, shortcomings, and more than likely we are falling into errors and mistakes. And yet, we do not realize those errors and mistakes, we are ready to judge others for their errors and mistakes, but we don't look at our own errors and mistakes. And there's a beautiful Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, which is from the words of the Prophet hood. And that is, one of you will see a small splinter in a

small bit of wood in the eye of his brother, yet he fails to see the branch or the twig inside his own eye. And that's because when you don't look at your own self, when you don't evaluate yourself, we don't consider who you are in the whole scheme of things, you are more likely just to find faults in others and not yourself.

I know it's difficult, but it's very important to try and get some spare free time in your daily schedule, maybe a few minutes here a few minutes there, where you just actually sit down. And just think about where you are, who you are your own problems, and how can you go about correcting those. And that's what we mean by having conflicting apps is that you might be operating one kind of thing in your own system. And yet your own status is conflicting with how you are looking at others, and how you're hearing things and how you are assessing things. So let us make that an opportunity for us to

00:02:20--> 00:02:57

consider our life consider our realities. And by doing that it's shot a lot we can be better placed to correct our faults and to look more positively towards others, as we are more appreciative of their errors and their shortcomings shortfalls. And maybe to help you as well check out my playlist, which is called don't judge others this short 10 short videos, which give you 10 reasons why you should not be judging others.
