Triple Filter

  1. 1. The Triple Filter
  2. 2. During the golden Abbasid period, one of the scholars in Baghdad, the capital of Muslim caliphate at that time, was reputed to hold knowledge in high esteem.
  3. 3. One day an acquaintance met the great scholar and said, " Do you know what I just heard about your friend?
  4. 4. Hold on a minute, before telling me anything I'd like you to pass a little test. It's called the Triple Filter Test . Scholar
  5. 5. Triple Filter Test? The Man
  6. 6. That's right, before you talk to me about my friend it might be a good idea to take a moment and filter what you're going to say. Scholar
  7. 7. That's why I call it the triple filter test. The first filter is Truth . Have you made absolutely sure that what you are about to tell me is true? Scholar continued
  8. 8. No, actually I just heard about it and ... The Man
  9. 9. All right, so you don't really know if it's true or not. Now let's try the second filter, the filter of Goodness . Is what you are about to tell me about my friend something good? Scholar
  10. 10. No, on the contrary... The Man
  11. 11. So, you want to tell me something bad about him, but you're not certain it's true. You may still pass the test though, because there's one filter left: Scholar
  12. 12. T he filter of Usefulness . Is what you want to tell me about my friend going to be useful to me? Scholar continued
  13. 13. No, not really. The Man
  14. 14. Well, if what you want to tell me is neither true nor good nor even useful, why tell it to me at all? Scholar
  15. 15. يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اجْتَنِبُوا كَثِيراً مِّنَ الظَّنِّ إِنَّ بَعْضَ الظَّنِّ إِثْمٌ وَ لا تَجَسَّسُوا وَ لا يَغْتَب بَّعْضُكُم بَعْضًا أَيُحِبُّ أَحَدُكُمْ أَن يَأْكُلَ لَحْمَ أَخِيهِ مَيْتًا فَكَرِهْتُمُوهُ وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ إِنَّ اللَّهَ تَوَّابٌ رَّحِيمٌ Surah 49 Al-Hujurat Ayah 12
  16. 16. O you who believe! Avoid much suspicions, indeed some suspicions are sins. And spy not, neither backbite one another. Would one of you like to eat the flesh of his dead brother? You would hate it (so hate backbiting) . And fear Allah. Verily, Allah is the One Who accepts repentance, Most Merciful . Surah 49 Al-Hujurat Ayah 12 Translation of the meaning:
