Traditions of the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him) in support of our contention Said he:

“Hell’s fire is forbidden for those that are mild and gentle and make it easy for others to deal with them.”

“Allah (Subhaanahu Wata’aalaa) is compassionate and likes compassion in His creatures. He grants more to the kind and the tender-hearted than to those that are harsh and severe.”

Self- restraint

Tolerance, affability, self-restraint, and the ability to control one’s temper and to overlook what is unpleasant and disagreeable are qualities that Islam want everyone to cultivate. Believers who possess these fine moral attributes hold a very high place in the estimation of Allah (Subhaanahu Wata’aalaa).

In the Quran where a mention is made of the blessed ones for whom the paradise has been laid out such people are specifically referred to:

Greatness with Allah (Subhaanahu Wata’aalaa) is not for those who look down upon others. Instead, it belongs to those desist from thinking too highly of themselves and practice meekness and humility.

In the words of Quran:

And the servants of (Allah (Subhaanahu Wata’aalaa)) Most Gracious are those who walk on earth in humility.

The Home of the Hereafter we shall give to those who intend not highhandedness or mischief on earth.

The Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him) has said:

“He who observes humility Allah (Subhaanahu Wata’aalaa) will make him so exalted that, ultimately, he will
