Work on Yourself First and Foremost

Hassan was told about slaves and their being oppressed, expecting Hassan to give one of his powerful reminders. However, Hassan stayed quiet for three weeks.

Then Hassan gave some reminders about freeing the slaves. The man asked him, why did you stay quiet for 3 weeks? Hassan replied, I didn’t want to tell the people to do something and I didn’t do it myself, so I freed a slave and then I reminded others.

It’s very important that when we learn something we are doing it to benefit ourselves first and foremost. Otherwise, we will be getting weak whilst we are helping others to increase their emaan.
