Tremendous Benefits of Gentleness for Your Hearts – Shaykh al-Uthaymeen

Know that gentleness towards the weak, the orphan and the young places in the heart: mercy, softness, compassion and (al-inaabah) turning repentantly to Allah The Mighty and Majestic with submission and eemaan. None attains this except the one who practises that (gentleness).

So it is a must for you to be merciful to the young, the orphan and the poor, in order for your heart to acquire compassion, tenderness and mercy. 

The Prophet (ﷺ) said: “Indeed those who Allah is merciful to from his slaves are the ones who are merciful to others.” (1)

We ask Allah to cover us and the Muslims with His Mercy and Grace, indeed He is Bountiful, the Generous One Abundant in Good.

(1) Hadith of Abu Usaamah ibn Zayd (Allah have mercy on them both) Bukhari 1284 & Muslim 923

Gentleness towards Those Who deserve it – [Ustaadh Abu Khadeejah’s Reaction When a Man Stood Up and Objected to His Speech during a Jumu’ah Khutbah]

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy

It was narrated to us by some of the Salafi brothers residing in Birmingham that during a Friday Sermon – which was witnessed by many- a man stood up and loudly objected to what Ustaadh Abu Khadeejah was saying, whilst he was warning the Muslims against deviants. Ustaadh Abu Khadeejah (may Allaah preserve him) calmly and politely informed the man that it is impermissible to speak whilst the khateeb is delivering the Jumu’ah Khutbah. The man was then spoken to after the khutbah to address his concerns. Many people witnessed this incident. May Allaah reward our teachers and those who taught them the manner in which to deal with different types of people. Aameen
