Correcting others

A mureed wrote about his excessive anger on non-Islamic actions committed by his family members. This was causing lot of frictions between the relatives.

Hakim al Umma Hadhrat Mawlana Ashraf ‘Ali Thanawi (may Allah have mercy on him) adviced him,

“It is the responsibility of a mentor or a leader to hold those under his supervision accountable for their actions. You are currently busy in your own reformation (islah) and should not have time for all of this. It is inappropriate for you to interfere in anyone’s affairs.”
