‘Al- Adab Al-Mufrad’ A code for everyday living: The example of the early Muslims by Imam Bukhari.
This hadith in the foreword struck me hard:
‘Aishah, may Allah be pleased with her, said: “I was on a camel that was somewhat troublesome and I began to beat it. the Prophet s.a.w said: “You must be gentle. Whenever there is gentleness in some matter, it adorns it and whenever it is taken away, that disfigures it.”
I thought hard, and considering all the remarks and feedback I received previously, I figured out that I must have been badly disfigured. Very very badly.
Be gentle, Afni. Be gentle.
