Who are we to judge others?

Assalamu alaikum,

It makes one wonders why we generally judge non-believers or  fellow Muslims brothers and sisters ?!!!!

How does judging someone help  in anyway?

Why can’t we accept people for who they are and try to help each other to be a better person without judging them?

    Assalamu alaikum,

    Who are we to judge others? very true, yet we are very quick to form judgements on others, and mostly without looking at ourselves first. Being quick to criticize someone, a muslim or a non-muslim, is something to be avoided because we do not know a persons intention, and they may be far better than us. We may see someone not acting in accordance with Allah’s actions and judge them to be a bad person. Only Allah knows their Niyyah (Intention) and later on in life they may be more succesful than us. We should focus on sharpening ourselves and strengthening your good deeds rather than bickering with other people about details of their life.

    Learn from the story of Prophet Musa (as) and Al-Khidr
    In Surah Al Kahf from ayah 60 till 82, is the story of Prophet Musa and Khidr. To sum up the story briefly, Prophet Musa followed a learned man called Al-Khidr to get guidance. He kept seeing Al-Khidr do actions that to Musa seemed wrong and Musa would speak up and point out that they were wrong. At the end, it turned out that Al-Khidrs intention had been good all along and though his actions seemed wrong he was actually doing them to benefit the people. This shows us that there are things of which we have no knowledge and should not think that we do.
