Jumping to Conclusions

To avoid falling into the pitfalls of misjudgment, we should not use our limited knowledge to judge world affairs. In our judgments, we should avoid judging things and affairs exclusively based on ourselves; rather we should take as many factors as possible into consideration.

Jumping to conclusions based on scanty pieces of the picture and ignoring the whole body of evidence is irrational indeed.

What should be strongly denied is the creation of “absolute evil.” It would be more acceptable to see things as good from one perspective but from another aspect, and the good aspect to be more is predominant in it.

With this limited knowledge, we should avoid rushing to jump to conclusions.

Chapter 17, verse 85:

“And you are not given aught of knowledge but a little”.

The philosophy behind some of these events is that they could prevent us from sinking into vanity and negligence.

Chapter 6, verse 42:

“…then We seized them with distress and affliction in order that they might humble themselves”.
