140 – Busying Oneself with the Faults of Others and It’s Cure

In this podcast Shaykh Faraz Rabbani continues the text, “Blameworthy Traits and Their Cure” (‘Uyub al-Nafs wa Mudawatuha) by Imam Abu Abdulrahman al-Sulami (died 412 A.H.). This work deals with states of the self, and how to rid oneself from blameworthy traits. In this episode Shaykh Faraz covers the blameworthy trait of busying oneself with the faults of others. He explains that having bad thoughts of others is blameworthy. Busying oneself with the faults of others, while being blind to ones own faults  is dangerous. Of the cures of busying oneself with he faults of others is to recognize that one’s first responsibility is ones own actions not the actions of others. Concern for others is not out of contempt with one’s own self. One has to always look at one’s own faults.
