Below is an extract from the book:
"Some of the e-mails that we receive are such that you do not know whether to believe what you are reading ... the content is sometimes so shocking, so shocking.
...But is there anything shocking anymore?
However, the intelligent ones take lessons from the mistakes of others, the consequences they face, and the problems they are contending with; and the intelligent ones avoid making those same mistakes.
One mistake which many people 'incline' towards is trusting just anyone. Their trust is sometimes plain foolishness. Therefore we say: Don't trust just anybody and everybody today. ...Those pious, righteous ones who can be trusted are few and scarce.
People trust others – especially friends. They trust their friends so much, that they allow them free access into their homes; allow them to become comfortable with wife and children...
In one letter ... and this is just one letter from amongst so many we receive, with similar content. ...No name is being mentioned.
The person wrote, saying that he allowed his friend to come into his home. Visits were even common when the husband was not at home. Friend and wife would chat away, and like that, befriended each other. They travelled together, socialized, went for coffees and teas, went here and there – and what happened was what should have been expected.
The husband is left crying – left devastated, saying: "My best friend took my wife away."
Who is to be blamed for this ?"
