Excuse and Rigidity

The litmus test for this is to consult one’s own conscience: a conscience that fears the standing before the Lord for the final reckoning.


Allah says, “Truly, man is a witness against himself, even if veils himself with excuses.” (Qur’an: 75: 14-15)


The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “Consult your (moral) conscience even if they offer you a different ruling.” (Ahmad)


In other words, each person with a sound moral conscience and aware of the watchful eyes of Allah should be able to judge their own actions.


Allah Almighty knows best.
