Minding Our Own Business


بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Shaykh Muhyi ad-Din Abu Muhammad ibn Abu Swalih ‘Abd al-Qadir al-Jilani (q.s.) said, as recorded in Jila’ al-Khawathir, “The Prophet (s.a.w.) is reported as having said, ‘Part of the excellence of a man’s Islam is paying no attention to that which does not concern him.’

To busy oneself with that which is irrelevant is the distraction of idle fools.  Deprived of the Good Pleasure of his Master is he who fails to put into practice what He Commands, and who occupies himself with things he has not been Instructed to deal with.  This is deprivation its very self, death its very self, and banishment its very self.”
