POEM: Before You Judge Others, Judge Yourself.

In The Name Of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful

That sister's friendliness does not mean 'flirting',
Nor does her silence mean she's into something.
Don't think she's this and that until there's clear proof.
Before you judge some, put yourself in their shoes.

That man's long beard does not mean he's so righteous
If he prays when he's seen and is impious.
Before you judge, know - and put things in their place.
Don't be quick to trust nor suspect someone's ways.

Who are you to claim that their marriage lacks love?
She could be in his thoughts he always thinks of,
Unable to express himself through sweetness,
While she's forgiving of his flaws and weakness.

Don't think she's arrogant when she walks by you,
She may not have heard, or she had lots to do.
Those brothers without beards - don't think they don't pray.
Don't make strangers' attitudes affect your day.

When one seems aloof, they're thinking or just shy.
If some friends did not visit in a long while,
Grant excuse - time or transport they could not find.
Careful when you judge, the truthful don't belie.

Only Allah can judge, He sees everything.
Every motive and notion is known to Him.
Should you judge for good reason, know all the facts.
Before you criticize, admit what you lack.

May Allah the All-Knowing forgive our sins,
Our neglect, our delays, all our wrongdoings,
May Allah replace our mistakes with good deeds,
With right belief and our trust in Him. Ameen.

When It's Okay To Judge Through Enjoining Right And Forbidding Wrong

"Judging Or Criticizing Others" In Islam

Allah the Almighty knows best.

May Allah the Most Merciful accept all our good deeds, forgive all our wrongdoings, answer our du'as and reunite us with our Muslim loved ones in Jannatul Firdaus next to Him and His beloved Messenger Muhammad SallAllahu alaihi wa sallam. Allahumma Innaka 'Afuwwun Kareemun tuhibbul 'afwa fa'fu 'annaa. Ameen.

Remember all Muslims in your du'as :)
