One day, when Rasûlullah asked the Ashâb-i kirâm, “Do you know who is called bankrupt?”  They said, “The person without any money or property left.” He declared, “Among my ummat, a bankrupt is a person whose deed-book contains many thawâbs of salât, fasting and zakât on the Day of Judgement. But he has cursed a person, slandered him and taken away his property. His thawâbs will be divided and distributed to such right-owners. If his thawâbs are depleted before the rights are paid, the sins of the right-owners will be loaded upon him. Then he will be hurled into Hell.”

It is written as follows in the ninety-eighth letter of Maktûbât:

“Rasûlullah (sall-Allâhu alaihi wa sallam) said: ‘Allâhu ta’âlâ is Rafîq (The Exalter). He likes mildness. He gives to mild people what he Has not given to the harsh ones or to anyone else.’ This tradition (hadith ash-sherîf) is written in the tradition book Sahîh by Imâm-i Muslim.

Again in Muslim, [the Prophet] said to Hadrat Âisha (radiy- Allâhu ’anhâ’) his blessed wife: ‘Behave mildly. Refrain from severity and from something repulsive! Mildness adorns a person and takes ugliness away.’
