Having Good Assumptions of Others

  • There are two requirements to having positive assumptions. First, is to have positive assumptions of others, and second is to have positive assumptions of Allah s.w.t. and what He has decreed upon us.

  • By assuming the best of those around us, we will reap fruitful benefits, such as preventing divisions that can harm the community and country. It also cleanses and purifies our hearts from harbouring ill will and bad intentions.

  • Having positive assumptions of Allah s.w.t. will nurture in us the confidence to lead our life under the guidance of Allah and His Prophet. The resilience portrayed by Rasulullah s.a.w. when faced with hardships was founded on the assumption that Allah s.w.t. will never let the efforts and sacrifices of His servants go to waste.
