The Good Deeds Shaver

The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “The diseases of the nations before you, malice and hatred, may also overtake you. Remember, they are like shavers; but they do not shave hair, rather, they shave virtues.” [Tirmidhi]

If somebody bothers you, do you have to hate them? If they underestimate you, don’t show you respect, or usurp your rights, do you have to hate them? If somebody has plenty of what you would love to have in life but have none of, do you have to hate them?

No! No! No! Focus on how you can be a better Muslim, how you can draw closer to Allah (subhana wa ta’ala), how you can increase your remembrance of Him so that He increases His love of you. In other words, focus on your Akhirah so you can be happy and have all you desire forever.

This life is only a test! All situations and circumstances are prescribed by Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) for His beloved slaves so that they can earn their unique way into Jannah.

Malice is a desire to harm others or to see others suffer; extreme ill will or spite. Malice arises out of hatred. If you allow yourself to feel hatred towards others you will then try to harm them consciously or subconsciously. Your harming others will shave your good deeds from your record.
