No one is perfect...

"What's the point of her wearing the hijab if she is so imperfect? What's the use of him keeping a beard if he can't even control his sight? What's the use of him praying 5 times if he chills and pops bottles? What is the point of your Hajj if you still fell into Zina?

These people forget that a man came to Rasūlullāh ﷺ over 50 times for drinking alcohol in MADINAH and when people teased him - Rasūlullāh ﷺ said, "Leave him! He loves Allāh and His Messenger ﷺ" When people spoke badly about a thief who prayed at night and would steal in the day - Rasūlullāh ﷺ refused to give up on him until he became the most truthful of men. They forgot the young man who came to the Prophet ﷺ and sought permission to commit Zina. What's an imperfect hijab - when our Prophet ﷺ taught us that even a prostitute went to Jannah for her mercy to a dog. The tears of humble sinners are more beloved to Allāh than the lengthy worship of the arrogant.

Allāh doesn't expect perfection so why do imperfect and sinful souls like us point fingers and demand it from others? No one is perfect. We aren't angels. We all have our own struggles, regrets, and issues. Sinning a billion times and then still having the strength and courage to return to Allāh isn't the sign of a hypocrite. It is the sign of those who love Allāh - and it is the sign of the people of Islam and Imaan. Jummah Mubarak
