Clean your heart…

In life, we tend to be judgmental and very often look down upon others without exploring deeper and finding out why the person is behaving in such a way.

“A young couple moved into a new neighbourhood. The next morning while they are eating breakfast, the young woman sees her neighbour hanging the laundry outside. “That laundry is not very clean”, she said. “She doesn’t know how to wash correctly. Perhaps she needs better laundry soap. “Her husband looked on, but remained silent. Every time her neighbour would hang her washing to dry, the young woman would make the same comments.

Some time later, the woman was surprised to see a nice clean laundry on the line and said to her husband: “Look, she has learned how to wash correctly.. I wonder who taught her this.”

“The husband said, “I got up early this morning and cleaned our windows”

Lesson: If our windows are dirty, will we see others as dirty too. What we see in others is indeed a reflection of our inner-selves! So watching others depends on the purity of the window through which we look. It is easy for us to condemn, discuss about other people, their lives & things that really doesn’t even concern us. However, we tend to forget – our windows may not be that clean after all!

An even bigger lesson to be learnt: Stop being judgmental about others. Judge yourself and your deeds before you are held accountable and leave the judgement to the all Knowing, all Powerful, Allah (swt)!

    Great story, Masha’Allah! There are times in our lives that we don’t even realize we are judging others….and that is incredibly scary. I always try to slap myself with reminders of my own weaknesses during those instances. Thanks for the reminder :)

I would love to hear from you..
