Hadith #13 – Corrupt Lawyers and Unserved Justice

Hadith #13 Notes

The Prophet ﷺ said, “Modesty/shyness and guilelessness are two branches of iman, while vulgarity and eloquence are two branches of hypocrisy.” [Narrated by at-Tirmidhi (2113) and deemed authentic by al-Albâni]

Eloquence is a powerful tool that can be used to inspire and build people up, but it can also be used to deceive and harm. We should be careful not to use our eloquence, power, wealth, or privilege to wrong others.
