.....Every person should at all times look towards his own shortcomings and make an effort towards self reformation. Become blind to the shortcomings of others. The person who looks towards his own shortcomings and is blind towards the faults of others has been praised in the Ahadith. However, pride is a great obstacle in this regard. It prevents one from recognising one’s faults. Pride always engages one in looking for the faults of others. May Allah Ta’ala save us from this serious malady. Always control your tongue and do not quarrel or dispute with anyone. Study the works of Hazrath Hakimul Ummah and strive to act upon it. If you mould your life according to his advice, Insha-Allah success will be at hand...
