✒ The Better Believer

Prophet Muḥammad Ṣallallāhu-ʿAlaihi Wa Sallam said:

المؤمن الذي يخالط الناس ويصبر على أذاهم أفضل من المؤمن الذي لا يخالط الناس ولا يصبر على أذاهم

“The believer who mixes with people and is patient upon their harm is BETTER than the believer who does not mingle with people nor is patient upon their harm.”

● [مختصر صحيح الجامع الصغير برقم ٦٦٥١ ، صححه الألباني]

al-ʿAllāmah al-Munāwee Raḥimahullāh said in its Sharḥ:

“And know that Allāh does not allow people to overcome you (with harm) except due to sins which occur from your hands, so seek Allāh’s Forgiveness and know that this harm is a punishment from Him.”
