Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said: “No one from my companions should convey to me anything regarding anyone, for verily I like to come out to you in a condition that I have a clean heart.” (Sunan Abi Dawood #4860)

Our Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was cautious with regards to the stories reaching him regarding his companions. Today, let alone entertaining stories, many a time we are tempted to search and dig into the affairs of others. We need to remind ourselves that being human beings, our hearts are extremely sensitive. At times, all it takes is a single word and our heart turns away from a person and despises him/her, whereas the word may have been conveyed to us in the wrong manner and completely out of context.
