Advice & Action

Come to me with your advice when I am alone

And do not advise me in the crowd

Because advice amongst the people is a scolding

And I do not like to hear it aloud

Then if you disobey me and do not heed my words

Do no feel sad when you are not followed

Imam Ash-Shafi’ (rh)

Verily the heart has moments of yearning and responsiveness. And moments of indifference and refusal. So snatch it at the time of yearning and response. And leave it at the time of indifference and refusal

-‘ibn Masud (ra)

Don’t convey the truth in a challenging manner

-Imam Ghazali (rh)

Do not be affected by worry or anger when people show a negative response to advice

-JustSomeThoughts
