When Sworn at or Verbally Abused

April 3, 2018 § Leave a comment


A man came and abused al-Ahnaf ibn Qais but he remained silent. Then he reviled him again persistently but al-Ahnaf still stayed quiet. So the man then said, “O what regret! Nothing stops him from answering me back except how worthless I am in his eyes.”

Al-Mujaalasah wa Jawaahirul-Ilm, vol. 8, p. 28.
