Sunan of Abu-Dawood Hadith (Hadith 2289)

"I heard the Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him) say: If you search for the faults of the people, you will corruptthem, or will nearly corrupt them. AbudDarda' said: These are the words which Mu'awiyah himself from the Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him), and Allah benefited him by them."

We are not better at judging who's good and who's not. These are our own perception of people. Allah is the Judge and Allah has given the authority to judge to certain people in authority like Qadhi etc and that too in case of conflicts. Quran says in Surah 17 Ayah 36, "And do not pursue that of which you have no strong reason to believe ; for every act of hearing, or of seeing or of feeling in the heart will be enquired (on the Day of Judgment)."

Who is Tayyeb? Does one become tayyab after sincerely repenting from what he or she has done in the past? History can also be misleading. And we dont even know if the person we think is good might be bad and he might be hiding something but it's a sin to speculate in Islam. You can not do this as Quran says, "O believers ! Avoid suspicion (speculation) as much as possible: suspicion (speculation) in some cases is a sin: and spy not on each other, nor backbite on one another. Would any of you like to eat the flesh of his dead brother ? No ; you would hate it (so hate backbiting), and fear Allah: In fact, Allah is the One Who forgives and accepts repentance, Most Merciful.(Al Hujarat Ayah 12)

We should try to be positive and see positiveness in people. (May Allah Guide us all)

Well said sister.  You are right, that each Qur'anic ayat can contain numerous meanings. There is another point for us to ponder as well: If we study Qur'an properly, we can find many answers to a question or concern in some other place in the Qur'an. Also, the words (ahadith) of Prophets, SAW with his Sunnah can be used as the guiding lights. May Allah, SWT give us the patience to study our Lord's words with best understanding. Aameen.

The situation you mention can happen because of the following two reason (And Allah knows best):

Those so called good spouse must at some point in their life been impressed by the bad people and internally despising good company in favor of the evil.
(You can fool the people but you cannot fool Allah)

Or if they are really good, Allah must have send good person to them, but they disliked the good person because of some deficiency in worldly affairs, like for example wealth or social status.

Every good that Allah decrees is a favor from Him, and every evil that we encounter is a consequence of our own actions (designed ingeniously by Allah to test us)

O Allah protect us from the evil of our own souls and keep us in the company of good people and increase our knowledge and give us command over our own desires and make us seed for good wherever we are.

Dear Usman,

First of all, whatever is written in the Quraan is the message from ALLAH to all the human, so we can learn and implement those things in our life. So it means that ALLAH, Quraan, Ahadees can't be false or lied. The second thing is that how can you be so damn sure that that spouse is really good who got the bad spouse or woman ? How could you be able to judge that person is so good ? only ALLAH judges everyone and he is the only one knows all the things. At the end i would say that " Quraan " Doesn't lie. It exactly happens whatever has been written in this and by said ALLAH and our Prophet Muhammad ( P.B.U.H ). Thanks

I think if it is mentioned in Quran that good spouse is for good and bad one for bad then we should accept it as it is. We are no one to judge a person's good characteristics.  Sometimes it seems   apparently  that a person is not good but it may possible that he or she may be near to Allah more than than any one else. Main thing we should learn form this ayah that we should control our (nafs) desires and urges for the will of Allah SWT. 
And I think one ayah of Quran has many meanings which we can not understand fully. May be this ayah is related to couple in Jannah. There would be good for good and bad for bad. 

Rest Allah knows best.

The two words used in Arabic

1 vote

The two words used in Arabic are الخبيث and الطيب. The four translations: corrupt, unclean, vile, and impure are for الخبيث, whereas for the second word الطيب the translations are opposite of the first: good, and pure. First of all we need to determine the characteristics of each meaning specified by the scholars and then review our characteristics for good and bad, look at explainations by numerous scholars for this ayat with available ahadith relating to it before we judge the Qur'anic statement Vs our impression. It may be an error on our part as oppose to Allah, SWT's words.  May He, the Exalted One, guide us to understand and apply properly the Qur'anic Guidance.
