Hadith 12 from An-Nawawi

BismiLlah Al Rahman Al Rahim,

On the authority of Abu Hurairah (r) who said: the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) said:

“Part of the perfection of someone’s Islam is leaving alone that which does not concern him”

[Hadith hasan – Recorded by Tirmidhi]

If it’s a matter that does not concern you, stay out of it.

The Prophet (pbuh) used to: “Mind your own business” إقبل على شأنك

[A] kind of harm: wasting one’s effort in something that would not benefit him/her in the Dunya and Akhira

“Don’t be wreckless” a hadith says

Gossip –> it does not concern you.

In the current age, we are asked to serve: how can you use your own profession to serve your field? what do you like to do? what do you enjoy doing? We need to become vehicles of service.

Don’t ruin your akhira by involving yourself in what does not concern you.

[Islam was spread with kindness]
