How not to enjoin the good…..



When you see someone doing good you encourage them instead of pointing out their faults.

A believer is not a fault finder.

Tomorrow she will follow fard.
Day after tomorrow she might become a Female Scholar of Islam.

We were all once on the brink of hellfire and Allah saved us. Lets not forget that.

This looks like a quick comeback but can hurt so many sisters who do not wear hijaab or who are in a transition of wearing a perfect hijaab.

Also please remember the sisters who wear hijaab and the sisters who do not wear hijaab are all Muslims and we need to take care of their hearts and souls. Stop labelling sisters based on “what you think you know about them”.

This way of correcting or guiding someone is not prophetic.
Guiding and giving dawah requires a lot of hikmah and love and not rude corrections. Especially in our times were everyone’s egos are riding high and mighty

Now, as we wait for this miscarriage to…
