You can’t please everyone

He who thinks that he is free from the criticism of people is a mad man, for even the Lord of the Worlds Himself has been wrongfully criticized.

Imam Al-Shafi’i (RA)

You will never be able to please everyone, rather rectify what is between you and God and do not care about the people.

Imam Al-Shafi’i (RA)

If you do ninety-nine things correct, and one thing incorrect, people will ignore the ninety-nine, and spread the one mistake.

Imam Al-Shafi’i (RA)

If you focused all your efforts into pleasing people, you’d never succeed, so be sincere to God in your actions and intentions.

Imam Al-Shafi’i (RA)

Let not your tongue mention the shame of another, for you yourself are covered in shame and all men have tongues.

Imam Al-Shafi’i (RA)
