Advise, Don’t Despise

sunsetHazrat Mufti Ebrahim Salejee (Daamat Barakaatuhu) mentioned:

We cannot despise and look down on anyone, since we don’t have any guarantee of the future. The magicians came out in the morning to challenge Hazrat Moosa (‘alaihis salaam) which was the worst crime, but by the end of that very same day, they passed away as the greatest saints of the time. The incident of Hazrat ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu)’s acceptance of Islam teaches us the same lesson. However this doesn’t mean that we must not advise anyone. In fact, this is a very important duty which the Ummah has neglected and is one of the causes for our du‘aas not being answered.
