Good deed #415 – Avoid arguing

Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: Whoever does not argue when he is in the wrong will have a home built for him on the edge of Paradise. Whoever avoids it when he is in the right will have a home built for him in the middle of Paradise. And whoever improves his own character, a home will be built for him in the highest part of Paradise. (Tirmidhi)

Abu Umamah Al-Bahili (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said,

“I guarantee a house in Jannah for one who gives up arguing, even if he is in the right; and I guarantee a home in the middle of Jannah for one who abandons lying even for the sake of fun; and I guarantee a house in the highest part of Jannahfor one who has good manners.”

[Abu Dawud]


Ubaida ibn As-Samit reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, came out to inform people about the Night of Decree in Ramadan but two Muslim men were arguing. The Prophet said, “Verily, I have come out to inform you about the Night of Decree, but two men were arguing so its knowledge was taken. Perhaps it is better for you, so look for it during the seventh, ninth, or fifth of the last ten nights.”
