Full Talk: The Madinan Society: A Tafsir of Surat al-Hujurat – Part 9

We often jump to conclusions when we see something out of place. At times there can be a very innocent and valid explanation to it all. Allah has instructed us as Muslims to be mindful of how we speak and even think of each other; to avoid conjecture and spying on one another as this may lead to violating the other person’s dignity.

Umar ibn al-Khattab mentions that if you hear something from your fellow Muslim, then as long as you can give it a favourable interpretation, make sure you give it a favourable interpretation. Shaykh Riyadh ul Haq details a humorous anecdote in this excerpt which gives us an example of how an onlooker may misinterpret a situation with little knowledge of what’s really going on.
