Wronging the One We Love

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
Sayyidina Husayn ibn ‘Ali (r.a.) said, “A man wrote to Abu Dzarr, ‘O Abu Dzarr, teach me something new of knowledge.’
Abu Dzarr replied to him, ‘Knowledge is vast.  However, if you can abstain from wronging someone that you love, do so.’
The man asked him, ‘Have you seen anyone wrong someone that he loves?’
Abu Dzarr replied, ‘Yes, your own self is the dearest of all things to you. And when you disobey God you have wronged it.’”
