hamdulillah salat wa salam ala rasulillah.

The reason why you should not judge others is when you start to judge others, it basically means that you are being occupied with others, you're thinking about others, your concern is others. And also your concerning about their bad things or their mistakes or the F the errors that defects. And that is a problem in itself because now what's happening is you are making the focus you're

00:00:51--> 00:01:35

on your focus is somebody else. And this is a dangerous path to go down the prophesizing or at the end ahaadeeth which is narrated by Abraham burn that he said, Yep, so I had to Qumran either for me or he went to the FBI in the upper one of you will see a small, like splinters small piece of this wood in the eye of his brother, but if against the whole branch that's in his eyes. And that means that when you start to be occupied with others, which is what you're going to be doing when you judge them, you're going to forget even the big things that you have your own mistakes, once a person was talking about somebody else in the presence of Abdullah Ebner bass, so Abdullah and I

00:01:35--> 00:02:18

said, if What if you want to talk about other people's mistakes or deficiencies, you should start by mentioning your mistakes and your deficiencies, because nobody could look at them. hapa everybody has mistakes, everyone has deficiencies. Who are you to start pointing out the deficiencies and the mistakes and the errors of others and not focus on yourself. And not only if this is done in a public sphere, think about a more realistic reality is that you as an individual, you have the duty, your ultimate duty is to save yourself, your ultimate duty is to be concerned with correcting yourself. So if now you are judging others, you're thinking about their mistakes, you are losing

00:02:18--> 00:03:01

sight of your objective in this life, which is to think about yourself, and how you can correct yourself. And that's why there are many sayings of the Sahaba of the tabbing of the righteous people who say that whoever starts being occupied with other people's mistakes, and not being occupied with his or her own mistakes, then this person is some you know, some of the narrations say that his heart is died saying is that his body will get tired. Some will say that it is a form of a test for him. It Some say it's a form of path, you know, a steep slope that he's going down towards destruction and so on. And there's so much that's being said about this. So very important to think

00:03:01--> 00:03:08

about this that when you're judging others, you are occupying yourself with things that you shouldn't be doing.
