Our expectation.

Salam alaikum and peace to all :*

A usual day routine as always. Went to school, went back home, had a nap awhile after zuhr (erkk)  then, woke up for asr, logged in facebook and eventually came across this sharing from ukhti Hidayah :)

I just want to share this over here. So that, insyaALLAH we can gain something from every sharing done :) May Allah bless her :)

When we see religious people, or people we think fit as the 'alim' (learned ones), we always have this expectation that they are perfect and free from voids, mistakes or mischief. We seem to form this whole idea, that 'orang alim' should and must be perfect, tak pernah buat silap.

And I used to have same thinking back then as well. When I saw someone who never misses solat, yet still hot-tempered, I questioned his/her religiosity. I questioned their heart. And for one defect they make, I turned blind to all the good they did. One dot on the white canvas makes the entire painting ugly.

It is a wrong thing to do indeed. Didn't ALLAH says:

" He knows what is in the heavens and on earth ; and He knows what you conceal and what you reveal ; and Allah knows well the secrets of all hearts. " (Surah At-Taghabun, 64:4 )

Who am I, you, us to judge what's in another's heart? Only He knows what is in the deepest of the heart, invisible to the eyes.

And no one is ever perfect, if not, why there are countless hadith and verses that repeatedly ask us to remind each other, and call each other to the way of our Lord? Surely, He knows best.

Nobody is perfect. A syeikh, a teacher, an engineer, a doctor or whosoever it is, we are here to complete each other. :)
