Shaykh Khaalid Ar-Raddaadee said:
1. To maintain manners and knowledge when advising. The scholars are not free from falling into mistakes, and students of knowledge are even more prone to this.
However sincere advice should be given in the correct prescribed manners, based upon evidences and proofs, not based upon suspicion and questioning people’s intentions and the spreading of lies. I remind them of the statement of the Prophet (sal Allaahu alayhi wa sallam) to Usaamah bin Zayd (may Allaah be pleased with them both) when he killed a man he thought had only proclaimed ‘Laa ilaaha illa Allaah’ due to his fear of being killed. The Prophet (sal Allaahu alayhi wa sallam) said to him:
Did you split open his heart to find out whether he truly meant what he said or not?
2. To be distant from suspicion, false doubts, tracking people’s mistakes and falsely accusing brothers with lies and accusations. I remind you of the statement of the Messenger of Allaah (sal Allaahu alayhi wa sallam):
O community of people, who have believed by their tongue, and belief has not entered their hearts; do not backbite Muslims, and do not search for their faults, for if anyone searches for their faults, Allaah will search for his fault, and if Allaah searches for the fault of anyone, He [will] disgrace him [even] in his own home.
3. To attach importance to knowledge and to that which benefits one in his religious and worldly affairs. Indeed the Prophet (sal Allaahu alayhi wa sallam) said:
Concentrate on those matters that will benefit you, and seek Allaah’s assistance.
And the Prophet (sal Allaahu alayhi wa sallam) also said:
From the goodness of a person’s Islam is to leave alone that which does not concern him.
4. To distance yourselves from insults, curses and vulgar speech. Indeed the Prophet (sal Allaahu alayhi wa sallam) forbade from this and he said:
The believer is not one who slanders, curses, or speaks in an obscene or foul manner.
He (sal Allaahu alayhi wa sallam) also said:
To insult a Muslim is disobedience, and to kill him is disbelief…” Ref: islam4me.wordpress.com
