Taking ones time and not rushing | Shaykh ‘Uthaymeen rahimahullah

قال العلامة ابن عثيمين رحمه الله : “الأناة: التَّأنِّي في الأمور وعدم التَّسرُّع،
Taking ones time in matter and not rushing.
وما أكثر ما يهلك الإنسان ويزلُّ بسبب التَّعجُّل في الأمور، وسواء في نقل الأخبار،
How often does a person become destroyed and slip due to rushing in matters, whether in relaying news
أو في الحكم على ما سمع، أو في غير ذلك. فمِن النَّاس -مثلًا- مَن يتخطَّف الأخبار بمجرَّد ما يسمع الخبر يحدِّث به، ينقله،..
Or in judging upon what he heard or in other than that. From the people for example are those whom grab the news by merely hearing the news, narrates it, and relays it.
ومِن النَّاس مَن يتسرَّع في الحكم، سمع عن شخص شيئًا مِن الأشياء، ويتأكَّد أنَّه قاله،
And from the people are those who rush in judgment, he heard from an individual something from the matters, he affirms that he said it
أو أنَّه فعله ثمَّ يتسرَّع في الحكم عليه، أنَّه أخطأ أو ضلَّ أو ما أشبه ذلك، وهذا غلط، التَّأنِّي في الأمور كلُّه خيرٌ” اهــ
Or that he did it then he rushed in ruling upon him, that he made a mistake or became misguided or similar to that and this is a mistake, taking ones time in the matters all of it is good.
