So those who have [sound] knowledge of the religion of Allaah do not pay any attention to fitnah – even if the people created a drama [over it].
The truthful person [is one who] restricts his speech, food, sleep, and mixing with others [to only that which is necessary]…
Indeed, the people who err the most, are those who engage the most in mentioning the mistakes of others.
And I advise the youth to hasten in getting married, particularly in this day and age in which the causes of fitnah and temptations have increased.
[Being] excessive in the mahr is detested in marriage, and it is a source of diminished blessings in [marriage] and difficulties.
