Leaving What Does Not Concern Us.

Assalam alaikum,
We learn from a certain Hadith of Prophet Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, that "from the excellence of a man's Islam is leaving that which does not concern him"...that is leaving that which is not important or benefitting him whether in speech, action or thought. Thus, 'the excellence of a man's Islam is its perfection, such that one remains steadfast in the submission to the Commands and Prohibitions of Allah, Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala, and surrenders to His rulings in accordance to His Destiny and Decree.

The reality of 'that which does not concern him' is that which is not needed for a worldly or next-worldly necessity, and does not aid in attaining his Lord's Good pleasure, such that it is possible to live without it....such as excessive acts and unnecessary speech.

This Noble Hadith may well be taken from from Allah Most High's saying:--"And who shun all vain things"(Qur'an-23:3).
For further reading, see Mullah Ali al-Qari's
Commentary On Mishkat al-Masabih.
