Do u see the trunk?

Abu Hurairah (RZA) narrates that The Prophet (SAWS) said: "One sees a stalk in his brother's eye but forgets the trunk of his own." (Ibn-e-Hannan)




What a BEAUTIFUL reminder, indeed! Each time I read this hadith it makes me lower my eyes and truly feel ashamed of scores of actions of mine!
As humans, we have a tendency to point ONLY at others! We really don't care about what we are doing..But, REMEMBER, ALLAH certainly sees the trunk... Can we for a while mirror that trunk?

MashAllah!

In order to see the trunk, one should take timeout from the humdrum of life & reflect. Sadly most of us don't do that. We are easily fooled by the deception of this life.

I am nobody, but a stranger, only a simple wayfarer,
My journey is this life till I reach the Hereafter..
Traveling all along the footsteps of my Teacher
,
For I have to, in time, reach the destination promised by MY
SUSTAINER...
