| Dont Judge Someone |

Narrated Jabir bin Abdullah that the Prophet Muhammad (Sallahu alaihi wasallam) said, "Enjoining all that is good is a Sadaqa." (Hadith - Sahih Al-Bukhari 8.50)

Did you think I was supporting this idea? No, I don't and I have certain evidences that would also change your mind. If not, even then I have some evidences that might at least change your hearts may you declare it out loud or not.

Majority of the Muslims have a belief in this idea so that they can justify their sins and keep on sinning. By saying this they expect to have a great distance from people who might stop them from doing so. After all who likes to be reminded of their sins constantly? No one does!

Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “All human beings without exception are sinful, but the best sinners are those who repent the most.” [Tirmidhi]

No one is perfect. Perfect and Kaamil is Allah alone.

There are four types of people:
1. one who sins secretly and hides his sins while hoping for the forgiveness of Allah. He is shameful of his sins and is struggling from them.
2. one who sins openly and declares it to everyone trying to justify themselves rather than being shameful of their acts.
3. one who sins secretly and pretends to be righteous in front of people so that they can please people. (hypocrites)
4. one who sins openly and is also shameful of their sins but can't control their nafs and souls. They are struggling too.

Ibn Qayyim said:

"The one who commits sin in secret is doing something less serious than one who commits sin openly and broadcasts it. The one who keeps quiet about it commits a less serious sin than one who tells people about it. Such a one is far removed from the forgiveness of Allaah, as the Prophet (Peace and blessings be upon him) said: “All of my ummah may be forgiven except those who commit sin openly…”

[Ighaathat al-Lahfaan, 2/147]

Which one these people are we?

Ok, we all sin, yes we do, no one is proud of that. But is the idea of "DON'T JUDGE SOMEONE JUST BECAUSE THEY SIN DIFFERENTLY THAN YOU" Justified??
Actually, NO.
If we all are sinners and no one is worthy of taking up that position of judging others (stopping bad deeds), then who will actually let us know that we are doing wrong? We can't keep on justifying our sins so much so that we risk Hell in our Destiny.

Allah subhanAllah wa Ta'al says in Surah Al Maida Verse 104:
"Let there arise out of you a group of people inviting to all that is good (Islam), enjoining Al-Ma'ruf (i.e. Islamic Monotheism and all that Islâm orders one to do) and forbidding Al-Munkar (polytheism and disbelief and all that Islâm has forbidden). And it is they who are the successful"

It is the duty of every single Muslim to Order others to do what Islam asks us to do and forbid what Islam prohibits us to do.

Majority of the people say,
"You don't do hijab, so don't tell me not to listen to music! See your inner evil deeds before you judge others"
"You smoke weed or cigarette, so don't tell me not to drink alcohol"
"Just because you enjoyed your whole life sinning doesn't mean you'll stop me from doing what I want"

Aren't these just the words of shaitaan or to be less harsh, the tricks of shaitaan to make us believe that we can sin too if others are?

I was never a righteous person, neither am I now, But whenever I stopped others from doing mistakes just like I did before or didn't do before, they actually made me feel guilty of the past sins I never did or for the sins I've already repented for!! Can't a muslim advise another muslim of doing what is good and forbiding what is evil?

Allah subhanAllah wa Ta'ala says in Surah Al-Tauba Verse:71
"The Believers, men and women, are protectors one of another: they enjoin what is just, and forbid what is evil: they observe regular prayers, practise regular charity, and obey Allah and His Messenger. On them will Allah pour His mercy: for Allah is Exalted in power, Wise. "
If muslims are having problems in stopping other muslims from sinning, then that is the biggest problem ever! No wonder muslims are in the worst of conditions right now.

And apart from these are those who support others in sinning and consider it ok to do so and they are considered to be the good guys who never judge others on their wrong deeds. What is the say on them?

Allah subhanAllah wa Ta'ala says in Surah Al- Maida:79
"They used not to forbid one another from the Munkar (wrong, evildoing, sins, polytheism, disbelief, etc.) which they committed. Evil indeed was what they used to do."

These aren't my words, but the truth definitely comes from the Qur'an itself, The Kalaam Of ALLAH.

My only sincere advise is that, stop justifying your sins.
If you know you sin, either you accept it and hide it from others so that others don't inspire from your sins and follow your footsteps meanwhile repenting at the same time. Or just Let the ones who enjoin good and forbid evil do what they do best rather than claiming them the bad guys and the "judgmental" ones here.

On the authority of Abu Sa`id (radhiallahu `anhu) that the Prophet sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam said, "Whoever sees something evil should change it with his hand. If he cannot, then with his tongue; and if he cannot do even that, then in his heart. That is the weakest degree of faith." (Sahih Muslim)

However, those who enjoin good and forbid evil need to be super kind and polite to others while doing so rather than sounding totally arrogant and belittling others. The best way for us to do that is by not sinning and leaving a good example on others. This way we won't be called hypocrites which is a completely different topic.

I hope my point is clear. No one is perfect. All we can do is repent and seek forgiveness from Allah (The Always all Merciful and the Most forgiving) and try our best to leave evil rather justifying our acts. inshaAllah!

May Allah make us real muslims rather than the Modernists. May He make us understand Islam the way it should be understood rather than choosing to do what we will and leaving what doesn't please us. Ameen
