Gentleness Yields Better Results
December 7, 2014 § 1 Comment
Shaykh Uthaymeen said that when you are gentle you will achieve by that two great benefits. Firstly: The love of Allaah azza wajall, for indeed, Allaah loves forbearance (rifq) and the people that are forbearing. Secondly: You will achieve with your gentleness what you will not achieve with forcefulness. So do not be hasty and hurry; do not let your zeal or emotion prevent you from being gentle. Because Rifq (forbearance or gentleness) will aid you in every matter, even in your own self.
