They have eyes too

A saying of Shaykh Ahmed Zarruq (May Allah have mercy upon him):

“If you desire to live such that your religion is safe and your portion is full and your honour is sound, guard your tongue and never mention another’s faults, remembering you yourself have faults and others have tongues. Watch your eye, should it ever reveal the faults of others say to it  ‘O my eye, other people have eyes too.’
