Clemency and tolerance

The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said to Ashaj Abdul-Qais (radi Allahu anhu), “You possess two qualities that Allah loves. These are clemency and tolerance.”

[Sahih Muslim]


This Hadith teaches us to adopt a patient, mild and discreet attitude towards others. Moreover, there is a provision for praising somebody in his presence, provided there is no likelihood of his being conceited. The Hadith also provides inspiration for the cultivation of good habits.

And Allah knows best!
