Means of Illumination

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “The excellence of a person’s Islam includes leaving what does not concern him.” [Tirmidhi]

Imam Shafi’ee mentions this quality as a means of being guided by Allah (subhana wa ta’ala): “Whoever wishes that Allah will illuminate him, let him leave that which doesn’t concern him.”
