Hadith on Harm: Avoiding Repeated Harm

📖Sahih al-Bukhari 6133
Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “A believer is not stung twice (by something) out of one and the same hole.”

  • The meaning of the hadith from Sahih al-Bukhari 6133, as narrated by Abu Huraira and attributed to Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ), is that a true believer should not be harmed repeatedly by the same source. This can be interpreted in various ways, such as avoiding situations or people that have caused harm in the past, being cautious and learning from previous mistakes, and not willingly subjecting oneself to repetitive harm or abuse. It emphasizes the importance of taking precautions and being mindful of one’s well-being and safety as a believer.
