Make This a Way of Life

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

[Consider] the ḥadīth “Tell [people] good things that will make them feel happy, and don’t drive them away”¹ and the ḥadīth “…and I like righteous, positive, encouraging words–good speech.”²

This is the default condition that a Muslim should be upon and that he should make [his] way of life:

  • being optimistic;
  • saying things that make people happy;
  • choosing the most beautiful words;
  • waiting for and expecting good things to happen
  • [being] far away from pessimism;
  • and negativity;
  • and expecting bad [things to happen];
  • and anticipating failure.
