Nasihah (Advice): The correct way of advising others:
Sayyiduna Ibn Abbaas (Radiyallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “Educate people and use words that will motivate them to do good and do not say things that will break their courage. And when you become angry, remain silent” (Musnad Ahmed, Hadith #: 2136)
