Leaving what’s doubtful- Riyadh us Saliheen


Hasan bin ‘Ali (May Allah be pleased with them) said:

I remember (these words) from Messenger of Allah (ﷺ): “Give up what is doubtful to you for that which is not doubtful; for truth is peace of mind and falsehood is doubt”.

[At- Tirmidhi, who categorised it as Hadith Hasan Sahih].


We should leave what causes us doubt:

Delving into the beautiful essence of the Prophet’s peace be upon him character, we witness heartwarming scenes of him playfully engaging with his grandsons and displaying immense gentleness.

His kindness extends to everyone, irrespective of beliefs, exemplified by his merciful approach towards a Bedouin who  urinated in the mosque. This incident showcases not only patience but also a profound understanding of human imperfection.

Moreover, the Prophet’s peace be upon him dedication is evident when his grandson rests on his back during prayer. Rather than hurrying, he prolongs his prostration, allowing the child ample time. This touching gesture illustrates the importance of patience, especially in moments of connection and devotion.

The overarching theme shows the essence of humility and inclusivity. The Prophet’s peace be upon him teachings encourage a grounded approach, as reflected in the narrated wisdom not to hinder women from attending the mosque. It’s a important reminder of embracing diversity within the community and fostering an environment of compassion and acceptance.
