The Triple Filter

Slide 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.

Slide 3:

One day an acquaintance met the great scholar and said, " Do you know what I just heard about your friend?

Slide 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

Slide 5:

Triple Filter Test? The Man

Slide 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

Slide 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

Slide 8:

No, actually I just heard about it and ... The Man

Slide 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

Slide 10:

No, on the contrary... The Man

Slide 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

Slide 12:

The filter of Usefulness . Is what you want to tell me about my friend going to be useful to me? Scholar continued

Slide 13:

No, not really. The Man

Slide 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

Slide 15:

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اجْتَنِبُوا كَثِيراً مِّنَ الظَّنِّ إِنَّ بَعْضَ الظَّنِّ إِثْمٌ وَلَا تَجَسَّسُوا وَلَا يَغْتَب بَّعْضُكُم بَعْضًا أَيُحِبُّ أَحَدُكُمْ أَن يَأْكُلَ لَحْمَ أَخِيهِ مَيْتًا فَكَرِهْتُمُوهُ وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ إِنَّ اللَّهَ تَوَّابٌ رَّحِيمٌ Surah 49 Al-Hujurat Ayah 12

Slide 16:

Surah 49 Al-Hujurat Ayah 12 Translation of the meaning: 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 (God). Verily, Allah is the One Who accepts repentance, Most Merciful.
