Abu Qilabah on Excuses: Perhaps my brother has an excuse I do not know

September 30, 2016

Al-Bayhaqi reported: Abu Qilabah, may Allah have mercy on him, said, “If you hear something about your brother that you hate, then make an effort to obtain an excuse for him. If you do not find an excuse, then say to yourself: Perhaps my brother has an excuse I do not know.”

عن البيهقي عَنْ أَبِي قِلابَةَ رحمه الله قَالَ إِذَا بَلَغَكَ عَنْ أَخِيكَ شَيْءٌ تَكْرَهُهُ فَالْتَمِسْ لَهُ الْعُذْرَ جَهْدَكَ فَإِنْ لَمْ تَجِدْ لَهُ عُذْرًا فَقُلْ فِي نَفْسِكَ لَعَلَّ لأَخِي عُذْرًا لا أَعْلَمُهُ
