DO NOT SUSPECT EVIL THOUGHTS
‘Umar ibn al-Khattāb (radiyAllāhu’anhu) said,
‘Do not suspect evil thoughts due to a word that has come out of the mouth of a Muslim brother. Rather, you should find that it is only filled with good.’ *
* See the treatise Dhamm ul-Hasad wa Ahlihī (Dispraise of Jealousy and its Adherents) of ibn al-Qayyim.
