Quote … Unquote … no. 16

In the two Sahîhs, from Abî Dharr, may Allah be pleased with him, that the Prophet, may Allah send salutations and peace upon him, said, «Whoever called a man by [a name of] disbelief or said, “O enemy of Allah!” and he is not such, except it returns on him.» This hadîth and what came regarding its meaning obligate the Muslim to ascertain the ruling on the people and to be cautious of accusing his brother with a blameworthy description while he is free of it, merely due to suspicion or [blind] imitation of someone not relied upon; and Allah is the one help is sought from.

About Rasheed Gonzales
My name is Rasheed Gonzales. I’m a Muslim convert of Filipino descent. Born and raised in Toronto, Canada, I was guided to Islam through one of my younger brothers and a couple of friends, all of whom had converted to Islam sometime before me (may Allah reward them greatly). I am married with four children (and the praise is Allah’s) and also a volunteer for the Qur'an & Sunnah Society of Canada, based in Toronto.
