In the days of devotion, control your anger and refrain from debates

The days of devotion

In the first ten days of Dhul Hijjah, say Subhanallah, Alhamidulillah, and Allahu Akbar increasingly. Do your necessary Takbir on the allotted days. If possible, fast on the day of Arafah – there is great reward in this. If eligible, give Qurbani on the day of Eid – this is an obligation to Allah for men and women. The rewards of all deeds are with Allah and his reward in better and everlasting.

Refrain from debates

Even if you are in the right refrain from debates and arguments. This is also a great calamity from the calamities of the tongue. These are such that they destroy the inner self of a person and the radiance of knowledge. If you must discuss do it from this aspect that it should be with seeking the truth. As in, speak to another seeking the truth, present your stance, and listen to them. If you understand, accept it, if you do not understand, discard it. That is it! Do not debate!
