Dealing with Criticism

by Abu Abdullah Ibne Ismail

Beneficial advice from Shaykh depicting how we should always think before reacting:

“No-one is able to escape from criticism. The Prophets alayhis salam, the Companions radiallahu anhum, and even Allah ta’ala have been targeted with criticism. When dealing with criticism we need to keep one basic principle in mind.

We should listen carefully to what is being said and assess whether it is correct or not. If we find that it is true, then we should try and rectify any faults that are highlighted. If after assessing ourselves we find that the criticism is baseless then we should ignore it.”
