Belittling others


Shaikh Abu Usman Hairi (Allah have mercy on him) said,

‘It is an established rule of this path (tareeq) that if an individual belittles another (even in his heart) he is totally devoid of gaining any spiritual benefit from that individual.’

Halaat-e-Muslih al-Ummat ra, page 109

    Salam.
    Yes.
    Being from huqooq al-ibaad, it is necessary ask forgiveness from that individual (You do not have to tell the details. Just asking for general forgiveness is okay.). This is especially so if that individual is aware of it. Otherwise, repentance and excessive dua (till you feel satisfied) for that individual will be fine.
