WHO IS A TRUE MUSLIM? (IMAM HASAN)

WHO IS A TRUE MUSLIM? (IMAM HASAN)
Strong (firm) in faith, wise but kind, true in belief,
knowing and forbearing, mindful in ease, considerate
in rights, temperate in wealth and contented in
poverty, gentle (in using power) , regardful in
friendship and patient in misery. Neither
anger can vanquish him nor excitement can
baffle him. Selfishness impels him not –
abundance of wealth disgraces him not-
and he becomes not mean for desire or
greed. Always brave and steady he
will run to rescue the oppressed
and will be kind to the feeble. He
is neither niggardly nor extra-
vagant- forgives the faults and
overlooks what the ignorant
do-his own self suffers pain
at his hands, but to the
world he affords
pleasure.


ABDUL WAHID OSMAN BELAL
