Leaving What Does Not Concern Us.

Post by Abu Fauzi on Fri Oct 26, 2012 4:16 am

Salaam everyone,
We have learnt from the Hadith, where the Noble Messenger of Allah, Prophet Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said that "From the excellence of a man's Islam is leaving what does not concern him", that is leaving that which is not important or benefitting him in speech, action or thought. Thus ' the excellence of a man's Islam' is its perfection, such that one remains steadfast in the submission to the commands and prohibitions of Allah and surrenders to His rulings in accordance to His Destiny and Decree.

The reality of 'that which does not concern him' is that which is not needed for a worldly or next-worldly necessity, and does not aid in attaining his Lord's Good pleasure, such that it is possible to live without it...such as excessive acts and unnecessary speech.

This Hadith may well be taken from Allah Most High's saying:--"And who shun all vain things"(Qur'an-23:3).
