    Default Preferring others to yourself

    Interesting quote I came across:

    "Giving precedence to others over yourself in those things which are obligatory is not allowed. For example, if a person only has enough water for himself with which to perform ablution and there is another person with him who needs water, he is not to give the water to the other person, the other person should do tayammum. Because this is giving precedence to others over yourself in those things which are obligatory, and giving such precedence to others over yourself is haraam."

    - Sh. Ibn al-'Uthaymin [al-Sharh al-Mumti, vol. 15, p. 40]

    "... And the last of their call will be, "Praise be to Allah, Lord of the worlds." [10:10]

    Imam Malik (rh): Do not look to the sins of people as if you are Lords, but look to your own sins as if you are slaves. Have mercy on the people of affliction and praise Allah for your well-being, and never say, This person is from the people of Hellfire, and this person is from the people of Paradise. Do not be arrogant over the sinners, but rather ask Allah to grant them hidayah and rashad (i.e. guidance).
