Commentary ~ Magnanimity

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

Ar-Rabi’atur-Raiy said, “Magnanimity consists of six characteristics: 3 as regards to when one is at home, and 3 as regards to when one is on a journey. As for when one is on a journey – spending from one’s provisions, good manners, and pleasantry with one’s companions. As for when one is at home – recitation of the Quran, adhering to the mosques, and chastity of one’s private parts. ‘Umar (may Allah be pleased with him) said, “There are two kinds of magnanimity: the outward kind and the inward kind. The outward kind is maintaining a good appearance, and the inward kind is chastity.”
