Authentic Supplication Number 218.

`Ammar bin Yasir ┬ásaid: “Three qualities! Whoever acquires them then he has acquired faith: the quality of exacting justice from one’s self (232), and to offer As-Salam to the world (233), and to spend [give charitable gifts in Allah’s cause] in spite of a barely sufficient sustenance [poverty].”

(232) In Dr. Nuhammad Muhsin Khan’s translation of Saheeh ‘Al-Bukhari this was rendered as “To treat others as one likes to be treated by others.” The Bukhari translation seems to impart some meaning to what we have mentioned above. People usually seek to exact justice from others; however, when one seeks to exact justice from himself, he is seeking to be juste in his dealing with others as he would like them to be when dealing with him. A person with this quality seems likely to admit his own faults and always seeks to treat people with fairness even if it does not seem to be in his favor. Of course such action is in his true favor because it is an act of obedience to The Creator Who has commanded us to be juste.

(233) Meaning those that you know and those that you do not.
