Make 70 excuses for your brother before accusing them of something!! Lets Practice!

Assalamu Alaikum Warahmatullahi t3ala Wabarakatuhu,

(Update: It seems like Im stuck with all 70 excuses, as everyone is preferring just reading over participating, so if no one replies by Saturday, then inshaALLAH t3ala I'll try to make more excuses {dont know if I can come up with all 70, but if no one else helps, I'll try inshaALLAH t3ala}, This update is for those who asked when all 70 are going to be listed)

Now these type of scenarios can happen to any of us on any normal day, but when they happen to others, the first thing that comes to our mind is something bad about them, so how about next time when you hear or see something disliked, you make excuses in your head for that person.

I hope that our fellow sisters would give us the benefit of the doubt and practice the 70 excuse train of thought.

To enhance creativity, to allow one to widen their imagination and to give brothers and sisters a chance to learn how people see things and think about things... these excuses may give our brothers n sisters another way of looking at things instead of always right to the negative.

Okay so here is the first scenario:

You see a muslim brother you know very well go into a bar.

Now think of all the excuses you can come up with at such a situation: The goal is to to reach atleast 70. 

Please comment with all the situations you can think of.

I don't want to make it difficult for you all by taking the easiest excuses, so I'm only going to make 3 right now, then inshaALLAH t3ala more in the future.

1)The brother didn't know it was a bar, because there wasn't a real big sign and it looked like any other shop.
2) The brother had to use the restroom, and his home was far from there.
3) He was fasting that day, and the time for maghrib had come in a long time ago, but this was the only shop near by, so he went to just get a drink of water.

Now its your turn!
I hope you all do participate!
