Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: Avoid suspicion, for suspicion is the gravest lie in talk and do not be inquisitive about one another and do not spy upon one another and do not feel envy with the other, and nurse no malice, and nurse no aversion and hostility against one another. And be fellow-brothers and servants of Allah. [Muslim Hadith 6214]
“Do not stop from saying that which is right (haq) from fear of people, because neither can anyone bring death closer to you nor can anyone take Rizq farther away from you.”
The sign of the merciful person is calmness, serenity, tolerance, open-mindedness, patience, gentleness, wait, self-examination before rushing into the reactions, abstaining from fighting on immediate fortunes and self benefits, refraining from grudge, controlling desire, long thinking, love of silence and enjoying being alone. That is because the merciful person has light inside himself that makes him feel comfortable despite being alone; that is because he is in constant dialogue with Allah, and permanent ease with the creation.
