DAY 1 : BE KIND
فَقُولَا لَهُ قَوْلًا لَّيِّنًا لَّعَلَّهُ يَتَذَكَّرُ أَوْ يَخْشَىٰ
“Speak to Pharaoh mildly that perhaps he may be reminded or fear Allah.”
[Al Qur’an 20:44]
In one way or the other, we know people from our family and acquaintances who are unbearable. When dealing with them, it’s common to lose our minds. However, as Muslims, we must understand that the idiom “blow for a blow” should not be adopted. Think about it; if you were to beat and bash a child whenever he committed a mistake, he would not learn anything, except that he would be beaten again if he repeated the mistake. Therefore, in order to improve the character of an individual, kindness must be adopted. It teaches people that making mistakes is okay, but not learning and correcting them is wrong.
May Allah سبحانه و تعالى help us improve our character. اللهم آمين.
