Hadith #10 – The “Everyone Else Does It” Fallacy

Hadith #10 Notes

Most of the injustice that is committed in society is committed because it has become normalized. Even if it is normalized in society, your heart should not be comfortable with it, and you must not conform to it. Sh. Omar Suleiman explains a hadith that reminds us not to oppress others or to join others in sinning or injustice even if everyone else is participating.
