Laura, hi, Laura here at hungry Lau salatu salam ala rasulillah.
The second reason why we should not judge others is the reality that we don't know again, what the hidden actions are. Because you might be seeing one aspect of a person's life but you don't know the full picture. You don't know how they deal in different matters. You don't know how they deal with other people. You don't know how they deal in their houses, you don't know this. So sometimes you might be judging them on a certain aspect which you are seeing, but you don't know the full picture. Only Allah subhanho wa Taala knows the full picture. And here I have to share with you a hadith and a story. As for the Hadith, this hadith narrated by Muslim the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
said husi para todo mi mccanna publica, a man was accounted from those who were before you fell a new debt level mean and higher. He couldn't find any there's no good deeds to be found. with him. Elon? Oh, can you harness? What can Iran? What can a Romani and Natasha was wanting more so the only thing was that he used to mix with others. And he used to have money so he was well off. So therefore he used to loan people money. And he used to say to his servants, his employees, when they used to go and collect to ask for the money to be paid back the loan, they would say he would say to Joe was Ron and more seriously, if a person has difficulty in paying back? Just pardon him, leave
him alone. So a whole lot to Allah xojo Allah says Allah azza wa jal says, Na Na COVID le came in touch I was one, we are more worthy or more right, we have more right to be pardoning, we have pardoned him, leave them and let him go. So this Hadees, which shows you that if you were to look at that person, within that time scale, you'd see they didn't have many good deeds, you might see that he's not doing much of
either praying or maybe not attending the masjid or maybe not.
Maybe even doing things which are Haram. And you might have just judged him for that reason, and you might have even condemned him. But look at what Allah subhanaw taala dealt with him because he used to have, he had an action, which wasn't apparent to everybody. And that was the huge to forgive those who had difficulties paying back the loans. So Allah subhanaw taala, for that reason, Allah said, We are more worthy of pardoning others, so pardon him. And the second thing was the story. And this is a story that is one of the stories narrated in the books, and its authenticity might be difficult to exactly establish. But nonetheless, the story is very much familiar. And that is once a
man who used to drink lots of alcohol. And he and there are some people, unfortunately, have been afflicted by this addiction.
And he used to drink alcohol and his neighbor used to be an Imam. And he was aware of him. And he tried to tell him to see the good ways and so on, but wasn't always successful in doing this. One day, the wife of that person knocked on the door of the Imam. And she told the man that he her husband had died. And she asked him if he would be kind enough to come and lead the janaza prayer. Now the man knowing that that person was alcoholic, and probably had other things, which we, you know, didn't mention in the story, maybe he didn't used to pray or so on. He refused to come. And he said, I'm not gonna lead them.
lead other people lead it. So the woman went away, and found somebody else to lead the janazah. And they prayed for him, they buried him the same night.
This man, the man, he saw that person that dream, and that person said to him, you man, and humbly like where I am in general. So he was surprised seeing that he was in the agenda. And in this in this way. And the man also said to the to the Imam, he said, it's good that we did not rely on your mercy and generosity, or we relied on Allah. And when the Imam woke up, he went to the wife. And he told her, he said to his wife, so was what was this man? Did you have anything? She said, Well, he didn't used to do much good, except that he used to look after some orphans. And he used to care take care of them and used to, you know, show them generosity. And he was to ask for them, but they
make the offer.
So the mob said, well, it is because of this action that the Allies were given him and has granted him.
So again, to see how he was condemned, and how our person looked at him at that specific moment in time, didn't see the bigger picture, didn't know why didn't actions are there. So that's why you shouldn't judge others because you don't know what actions they are doing.
