An indicator of the tenderness of a believer’s heart

Reference: Madaarij as-Saalikeen – v1, p436

al-Imaam Ibn al-Qayyim (rahima-hullaah) said:

From the indicators of the tenderness of a believer’s heart is that he feels pain at the mishap of his believing brother when he slips up, so much so that it is as if he himself is the one who has slipped up; and he [certainly] does not maliciously rejoice [at his brother’s lapse].
