Ryan’s Word Of The Day: Lenient (adj.)

Meaning: opposite of

strict, let off, light punishment

Example (1): “When I was a handsome young boy my mum would always be strict with me, never lenient. That way I learned my lesson and didn’t repeat the same mistakes.”

Example (2): “My bestie’s boyfriend cheated on her last night and she only slapped him on the face twice. That’s friggin’ lenient! If a guy ever did that to me, I’d chop his balls off and feed them to my pet dog. No one is cheating on me, that’s for sure!”

See ya!

    An example of lenient: “A man from the time before you was called to account in the Hereafter. Nothing good was found with him except that he was lenient in his business with people and he would order his servant to relieve the debts of those in hardship. Allah Almighty said: We are more worthy of such actions, so overlook his sins.”
