How Just are You?
A bedouin asked the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam): “I'd like to be the most just man.” The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) told him: “Desire for others what you desire for yourself, and you will be the most just of men.” [Related by Imam Ahmad Ibn Hanbal]
Do you like for others to be as wealthy as you? Would you want them to enjoy the same respect that you command? Would you like for others to be as loved as you are? Think about these things and assess where you stand on the scale of justice.
