Before Condemning Others

Abu Hurairah [R.A.] narrates that Rasulullah [s.a.w.s] said : 
"...your faults should stop you from criticizing others". 
(Mustadrak Al- Hakim)

Putting ourselves in the shoes of others momentarily in order to try to understand them better before commenting or acting against them is very important.
Many people condemn others without trying to see where they are coming from or why they have acted in a specific way or said something.
If we are sincere, we will understand one another better & possibly reduce much unwanted skepticism, hatred & enmity.
-Mufti Ismail Menk
