    Question about negative assumption

    Report bad ads?

    Salaam

    This verse in Surah Al Hujurat says: “O you who have believed, avoid much [negative] assumption. Indeed, some assumption is sin”

    What would the “some” entail? I have borderline personality disorder and that makes me suspicious of people’s intentions and I often don’t trust people. Also, I am usually anxious to talk to people because I am worried that they hate me. What should I do? Would this be haraam?

    Also, does this contradict the statement that if something bad crosses someone’s mind they aren’t judged for it? Please could someone kindly clear these questions up for me.
    I am in distress.

    Jazzakallahu Khair.

    Another question about Surah Al-Hujurah

    Salaam

    “O you who have believed, avoid much [negative] assumption. Indeed, some assumption is sin”

    Does this refer to suspicions about people only or is it meant more generally. (Such as if someone was pessimistic about the future)

    Jazzakallahu Khair.

    Al-Bukhaari (5143) and Muslim (2563) narrated from Abu Hurayrah that the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “Beware of suspicion, for suspicion is the falsest of speech.”

    We are injuncted to refrain from baseless suspicion because it's sin.

    If someone acts upon sinful suspicions, will commit extra sin.

    Asalaamualaykum - I have gave a almost generic answer to all people who claim to have a mental stability issue on this site.

    If you have been diagnosed with BPD formally - then you will have an appointed Psychologist or sometimes a Psychiatrist. (Depending on whether you're medicated or not). For you to find out your accountability in Shariah both an Aalim and the medical professional need to act together to resolve your issue.

    The general Aaalim will wont have a clue on BPD or the variations of it and likewise, Your designated medical Professional (either 2 of the above mentioned) wont have an idea of the Shariah aspect.

    If you are a "self diagnosed" person then you need to see a professional.

    Re: Question about negative assumption
