Whoaaa

Its really shocking seeing a person regarded as a “professional” yelling at another adult in public. Not only that, its highly offensive, and takes away all credibility (well, what little I had anyway) from you. Civilized, eh? Little do they realize what our religion has spoken about in terms of somebody insulting you. 🙂

Sa’eed bin Musayyeb says:
Once the Prophet (peace be upn him) was sitting with his Companions, and one person used insulting words against Abu Bakr (may Allah be pleased with him), causing him pain. But Abu Bakr remained silent. The person again used bitter words against Abu Bakr, and still Abu Bakr did not respond. The third time when this ignorant person hurt Abu Bakr with his tongue, Abu Bakr tried answering back.

At this point the Prophet (sall Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) got up. Abu Bakr (may Allah be pleased with him) asked him, “Are you displeased with me, O Messenger of Allah?” The Prophet (sall Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) replied, “No, but (when you remained silent) an angel came down from the heaven responding to this man’s talk. But the moment you started replying to that man, the angel went away and the devil sat down. And I cannot sit where the devil is sitting.”

[Abu Dawood]

    MashaAllah, while society tends to urge us to speak up and “defend ourselves”, Islam shows us the best way. Too often, speaking up does way more harm than good…the best thing about freedom of speech is that you have the freedom to *not* speak! What better than to have angels speak for us?! MashaAllah walhamdulillah!

    *wub*
