Let me tell you a true story. There was this brother, a practising muslim. He was not very humble. He judged people instead of trying to correct them. He would often rant on and on, without anyone actually bothering to listen to him. He would get into arguments over trivial issues. Although everything he said was correct, his message didn't seem to get thru most of the time.
Then one day, he was struck down with a spritual disease. A disease so severe that it took him many, many years to come out of it. A disease by which he thought he was the biggest sinner on the face of the earth. A disease so severe that even now, he finds it difficult to talk about.
The disease taught the brother a big lesson in humility, so much so that he now calls himself The Humble Muslim.

This advice is for myself as well as y'all
Allah ta'ala is al merciful and may forgive us for any shortcomings with for example missing salaat. However on judgement day if you had hurt someone on earth. That person will be given some of your good deeds or some of the victims bad deeds will be added to yours as compensation for the hurt you cause them.
Abu Hurairah narrated
Whoever believes in Allah and the last day should stay quiet unless they are going to say something beneficial.
Imam Shaafi says pause to think before you speak. this is to ensure that you are going to say something beneficial to people. This really makes one think about all that are said in seriousness and in jest.
sticks and stones may break my bones
but words will hurt me forever.
does any one have the full version to this poem? If so could you send it to me?
Just my two cents....
