Apologizing After Offending You….


"Whoever has offended you and then approached you to apologize, humility obligates that you accept his apology whether it is truthful or not, and that you leave his secret thoughts to God.

The sign of generosity and humility is that if you notice a defect in his apology, you do not address it nor hold him against it.”

Imam Ibn al Qayyim Al-Jawziyyah (RahimahuAllah)

Madaarij as-Salikeen (Ranks of the Wayfarers): (2/338)

So many words better left unspoken.


The years between eighteen and twenty-eight are the hardest, psychologically. It’s then you realize this is make or break, you no longer have the excuse of youth, and it is time to become an adult – but you are not ready.

But in Islam you’re considered an accountable adult the moment you hit puberty. This quote is still true though, considering the life changes in that age span: from schooling to working to possible marriage and even having children.
