Do Not Look Down Upon Others - A Quote of Hazrat Moulana Yunus Patel Saheb

"We cannot and should not look down upon anyone. Once, a drunkard found a piece of paper with the name of Allah written on it. Although he was half-drunk, he picked it up, cleaned it, put itr (scent) on it and kept it in a safe place.
When he passed away, someone saw him in a dream in which he informed the person that he had gained salvation because of that good deed. This action of his was the means of his forgiveness and salvation.
As Muslims, our Imaan dictates that we disapprove of and hate sins, but not the person indulging in sin. We do not know over which deed or action a person could gain forgiveness. We should neither consider any good deed as insignificant nor should we consider any sin, too trivial or small.
It is mentioned in the Ahadith, that once Nabi Salla Allahu 'Alayhi wa Sallam said to Hazrat Ayesha : “O Ayesha! Take special care to guard yourself against sins that are regarded ‘minor’, for even these will be brought to account by Allah.”
Even though one may abstain from major sins, one should not be indifferent to those sins categorised as minor sins, for it may well be, that one is taken to task for something which one considered ‘trivial’."
