The Triple Filter Test

The Prophet (PBUH) is reported to have said, "Ghibah is worse than zina (adultery)."

During the golden Abbasid period, one of the scholars in Baghdad, the capital of Muslim caliphate at that time, was reputed to hold knowledge in high esteem.

One day an acquaintance met the great scholar and said, "Do you know what I just heard about your friend?"

The Scholar replied, "Hold on a minute, before telling me anything I'd like you to pass a little test. It's called the Triple Filter Test."

The Man questioned, "Triple Filter Test?"

The Scholar replying said, "That's right, before you talk to me about my friend it might be a good idea to take a moment and filter what you're going to say." He continued, "That's why I call it the triple filter test. The first filter is Truth. Have you made absolutely sure that what you are about to tell me is true?"

The Man answered in the negative," No, actually I just heard about it and..."

"All right, so you don't really know if it's true or not." Interrupted the scholar, "Now let's try the second filter, the filter of Goodness. Is what you are about to tell me about my friend something good?"

The Man answered, "No, on the contrary..."

The Scholar interrupting again, "So, you want to tell me something bad about him, but you're not certain it's true. You may still pass the test though, because there's one filter left. The filter of Usefulness is what you want to tell me about my friend going to be useful to me?"

The Man thinking for a moment, gave an answer, "No, not really."

The Scholar then questioned his companion, "Well, if what you want to tell me is neither true nor good nor even useful, why tell it to me at all?"

"O you who believe! Avoid much suspicions, indeed some suspicions are sins. And spy not, neither backbite one another. Would one of you like to eat the flesh of his dead brother? You would hate it (so hate backbiting). And fear Allah. Verily, Allah is the One Who accepts repentance, Most Merciful. (Chapter 49, Verse 12)

Yeah...But ALLAH forgives everything,Right?



by Muslim1400


There's a pretty common mistake that a lot of people are making, and it's thinking that Islam is like Christianity somehow. In Christianity, Prophet Jesus['Isa], peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him, was supposedly crucified as punishment for the sins of all mankind. He took all our punishment, so now all we have to do is believe in him and we're automatically saved because he went through living hell for us. That's called vicarious atonement.


In Islam, there is no vicarious atonement. No one died or was tortured on a cross to apologize for your sins, so you have to apologize yourself. In order to be forgiven, you have to ask for forgiveness. You can't just lay down at night without praying Isha and just think, "Oh it's ok if I miss Isha Prayer, Allaah forgives everything". It doesn't work that way. Allaah can forgive all sins, but that doesn't mean He will, especially if you don't even ask, especially if you're not even sorry for what you're doing when you know it's wrong. Sinning and then brushing it off by saying that Allaah forgives everything is not actually being repentant, it's being opportunistic, it's called trying to find loopholes. Real repentance is called Taubah.

Repentance, called Taubah in Arabic, works like this- there are four basic steps to repentance according unanimously to Muslim scholars and simple logic:

STEP 1: STOP THE SIN. Obviously you can't repent of something when you're still doing it, that's the equivalent of punching someone in the eye repeatedly and apologizing at the same time. You have to stop doing whatever wrong it is you're doing first.

STEP 2: FEEL BAD. Feeling bad implies you understand what you were doing was probably wrong, ungrateful, and un-Islamic. If you do step one and stop sinning without ever feeling Islamically bad about what you were doing, then chances are you quit for some other reason. It's like not wearing tight clothes anymore only because you gained weight, or not dating because no one has asked you out. If you didn't quit for the sake of your religion or to please Allaah, how can that be counted as repentance?

STEP 3: RESOLVE NOT TO REPEAT IT. You can't just quit smoking...in between cigarettes... You have to decide to quit for good. It?s true that since people are imperfect, that they may lapse back into sins, but the point is that you sincerely repent and resolve to stop doing that specific sin immediately and try, to the best of your abilities, to never do it again. Otherwise it's like "Ya Allaah, I'm sorry, but I'll do this again anyway?".

STEP 4: MAKE UP FOR IT. The last step is the hardest one of all. If you sinned against someone, you have to apologize or do something to make up for it. If you stole, you have to pay what you owe or return what you stole. If you missed prayer, you have to make them up as well. If you don't try to make up for the wrongs you've done, then you're just repenting so long as it doesn't cause you any trouble, and that doesn't sound too sincere, does it?

BUT WHAT IF I HAVE TOO MANY SINS?

There's no such thing as having too many sins, anyone who thinks that hasn't got enough faith in Allaah's Infinite Mercy. It's actually a little cocky too...no don?t bother forgiving me, I got more sins than you have mercy...Astaghfirullah. Allaah says in Hadith Qudsi number 34 of 40 Hadith Qudsi:

"...O Son of Adam! If your sins were to reach the limits of the sky, and then you seek My forgiveness, I shall forgive you, and I shall not mind. O Son of Adam! If you will bring sins equal in volume to the earth and then you meet Me (on the day of Judgment) in the state that you would not have suggested partners unto Me, I shall give you in return forgiveness equal to the volume of the earth."

Remember, forgiveness is conditional; in order to be forgiven you have to repent and do Taubah, and not have committed Shirk (Shirk is worshipping anything other than Allaah or associating anything with Him). ?

But what about "minor" sins?

Said Anas, may Allaah be pleased with him (to one of the followers): "You imagine certain sins to be more insignificant than a straw. But, at the time of the Prophet we used to count them among those that can destroy a man." -[HR: Bukhari]

Ibn Mas'ud, a companion of the Prophet said: "A believer treats a sin as if it is a mountain over his head that may fall on him any moment. Whereas a regular violator looks at them as a fly that perked on his nose and he waved it away with his hand." -[[HR: Bukhari]

The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him said: "Beware of the minor sins. For the example of the minor sins is like that of a group of travelers who broke their journey in a valley. Then one of them brought in a straw (to burn for a camp-fire). Another came up with another (and a third with one more) until with their collection they were able to gather enough t o cook their food. Remember! If a man is held for questioning (on the day of Judgment) for his minor sins, surely they will destroy him."

In another version he is reported to have said: "Beware of minor sins. For they add on until they destroy the man." (drop by drop fills the bucket, straw by straw builds a fire, sin by sin?)

"And when My slaves ask you (O Muhammad ) about Me (whether I am close to them or at a distance, let them know that), I Answer the prayers of him who calls Me." [Al-Baqarah: 186]

THE WISE KING

In a far away land, there was a beautiful kingdom with its unique rule. The rule said, Everyone may become the king, with all of his rights to govern the country for five years. After that he must be detained, his body will be tied and he will be thrown away to a remote island where the jungle is thick and there are plenty of wild animals and no human.

Then, one by one, people became the king. The first man said 'OK, I am ready to be the king.' And he became a king for five years. What he did in his five years was enjoying his position. He threw big parties, went to many beautiful places, married many women, collected many luxurious things and did many other things that pleased him.

That was all he did. Until one day the time came. One morning when the king woke up, suddenly the strong soldiers came to his palace and said,'We come to here under the order of the constitution. You have been a king for five years. And now the time has come when we shall seize you and take you to the remote island.'

The king wasn't very surprised of this, because he knew that the time would come. He just felt that the time passed by too fast. He had enjoyed himself in the past five years but now he had to leave all the things that had made him happy, and would undergo living in the very dangerous island. He was very scared but could do nothing and had to accept his destiny with tears in his eyes.

And when they got there, the soldiers put the dethroned king in the jungle and left him alone. They didn't know and didn't care about what would happen to him. All they heard when they left the island was just the voices of wild animals and the long scream of the former king ,and then silence again.

Back to the kingdom. The constitution was still effective. And now, there is a second king. Then the time showed that he behaved similarly as the first king. He used his time to enjoy an extravagant life, but after his five years was over, the soldiers took him to the island. He cried on the day he was thrown onto the remote island, and the voice of wild animals mixed with his scream was heard after he was left alone there.

Every other king was the same. Each one of them just copied their predecessors legacy. Laugh in the beginning, but cry in the end..

One day, a young man came and declared his wish to be a king. By the constitution he was granted his wish. He would be a king for five years before being thrown onto to the island. But if other kings would follow their passion for having fun after being inaugurated, he didn't. He realized that his time was only five years. Even if he had a happy life in the five years, his life as a king would come to an end.

So the king was always seen to be thinking. And not very long after that, he made a suprising decision. I won't make an extravagant live, but I attempt to use all of my power, even if I have to suffer, to prepare my life at the remote island.

In the first year he sent troops, veterinarians, and animals trainers to the dangerous island. The mission was to control the population of wild animals there or domesticate them for good use. Well the mission was so huge that it consumed a lot of the countrys resources. But it was the kings decision and he had calculated it, and he was ready to make sacrifices. So, all things had been used by all kings to have their fun, now it was used by the new king in this mission. He really dedicated all of his energy to the mission. The mission was successfully done.

In the second year, he sent a lot of farmers to the island to start a wide rice field there. In the third year, he built a lot of facilities on the island, from electricity to hospitals and schools. In the fourth year, he sent a lot of educated people like engineers, accountants, and many others to the island. In the fifth year, he sent his friends and his relatives to the island.

And finally the time came when the king had to be thrown onto the island. In the morning of the big day, the king smiled his widest smile ever in five years.When many strong soldiers caught and roped him, his smile grow wider. And finally he laughed a great laugh when the soldiers threw him onto the island.

Yes, how couldn't he laugh? If the previous kings found thick jungle and so many wild animals when they were being thrown away, the last king found many exciting things needed to live comfortably. All of his family were there and welcomed him. They cheered, Long live the wise king, long live the wise king!And the wise king lived happily ever after.

The story has a very good lesson for all of us. Actually everyone of us is like the king. We are given time to live in this world and do whatever we want. But after the time ends, we will be detained (by Izrail, the death angle), and being roped (with kafan) and then finally thrown away to the very dangerous place (grave, with its snakes, scorpions)

So many people are tricked by their life in the world. All they do in this world is all fun for them, and forget that the time will come when they will face a very different life. And when it happens, they are tortured and suffer forever.

But not with the clever people, they live in this world to prepare their next life in the afterworld, just like the wise king. This people will face death with a smile, because they wil livel a very good life in paradise. And the ending for these people is, they live in true happiness forever.
