Looking into People’s Intentions

The shaikh, Dr. Muḥammad ibn Ghālib Al-ʿUmarī, may Allāh protect him, said:

Among the most constricted of people in their chests and the most [afflicted] of them with worry and distress are [those] who’ve gotten used to having bad thoughts [of others] without any clear proof and drowned themselves in interpreting [people’s] intentions without any evidence or explanation. If only they’d give themselves a rest from that, they’d have put their affairs in order thereby and spared people their evil.

That’s why jihad against oneself is from the greatest forms of jihad, due to how difficult that is for people to do—other than those to whom my Lord has given [special] care and mercy.
