Good Opinions of Others

PrintE-mail

Hazrat Moulana Maseehullah Khan Saheb (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) never harboured ill feelings or evil thoughts about others. In fact, he would go to the extreme in covering up for that person’s action.

He said on one occasion. “A story after all is a story. For every story there are a thousand different versions. Even if one sees something with one’s own eyes, then as far as possible, interpret the action in a good manner because many a times, our sight could be in error. As in the case of a train, it appears to be moving but in reality it is stationary. The reality is that it is the other train that is moving.”

His good opinions of others were such that it became well known to people that he never entertained evil opinions of others. One of his attendants mentioned that he heard him say on numerous occasions: “We entertain only good opinions of others.” (Hazrat Moulana Maseehullah Khan Saheb [rahmatullahi ‘alaih] – A Brief Biography, pg. 126)
