Arguments

Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Whoever does not argue when he is in the wrong will have a home built for him on the edge of Paradise. Whoever avoids it when he in the right will have a home built for him in the middle of Paradise. And whoever improves his own character, a home will be built for him in the highest part of Paradise.” [Tirmidhi]

 

What an amazing hadith – avoid argumentation whether you are in the wrong or the right – and there is a greater reward if you avoid it when you are right. How difficult do we find it to leave an argument when we have a point to prove or make? And if one avoids getting involved with argumentation and instead focuses on perfecting their character – which is what we are told the Prophet peace be upon him was sent for (Indeed I was only sent to perfect character) – then there is the greatest jihad (struggle) and greatest reward. I love Islam.
