Jesus on Humility: Look at your own sins like slaves, not as lords

Malik ibn Anas reported: It has been narrated that Jesus, the son of Mary, upon him be peace, used to say, “Do not speak too much without remembering Allah, for it will harden your hearts and a hard heart is the furthest from Allah, if only you knew. Do not look at the sins of people as if you were lords, rather look at your own sins as if you were slaves. Verily, some people are put to trial and others are granted safety, so be merciful to those under trial and praise Allah for your safety.”

عن مَالِك بن أنس أَنَّه بَلَغَهُ أَنَّ عِيسَى ابْنَ مَرْيَمَ عَلَيْهِ السَّلَامُ كَانَ يَقُولُ لَا تُكْثِرُوا الْكَلَامَ بِغَيْرِ ذِكْرِ اللَّهِ فَتَقْسُوَ قُلُوبُكُمْ فَإِنَّ الْقَلْبَ الْقَاسِيَ بَعِيدٌ مِنْ اللَّهِ وَلَكِنْ لَا تَعْلَمُونَ وَلَا تَنْظُرُوا فِي ذُنُوبِ النَّاسِ كَأَنَّكُمْ أَرْبَابٌ وَانْظُرُوا فِي ذُنُوبِكُمْ كَأَنَّكُمْ عَبِيدٌ فَإِنَّمَا النَّاسُ مُبْتَلًى وَمُعَافًى فَارْحَمُوا أَهْلَ الْبَلَاءِ وَاحْمَدُوا اللَّهَ عَلَى الْعَافِيَة
