إن كرام الناس أسرعهم مودة ، وأبطؤهم عداوة ، مثل الكوب من الفضة : يبطئ الانكسار ، ويسرع الانجبار ، وإن لئام الناس أبطؤهم مودة ، وأسرعهم عداوة مثل الكوب من الفخار : يسرع الانكسار ويبطئ الانجبار
"The honourable are the quickest of all people to make up and the slowest to make enemies. They are like silver vessels; Hard to break and easy to repair.
As for the ill-mannered, they are the slowest of all people to make up and the quickest to make enemies. They are like glass vessels; Easy to break and hard to repair!"
(From the book, 'Rawdatul 'Uqalaa')
Let's ease up, accept apologies and continue our journey to the Home of the Hereafter with the fewest enemies possible.
What is even more beautiful than Ash-Sha'bi's words however are the words of Allah, who said:
ادْفَعْ بِالَّتِي هِيَ أَحْسَنُ فَإِذَا الَّذِي بَيْنَكَ وَبَيْنَهُ عَدَاوَةٌ كَأَنَّهُ وَلِيٌّ حَمِيمٌ (34) وَمَا يُلَقَّاهَا إِلَّا الَّذِينَ صَبَرُوا وَمَا يُلَقَّاهَا إِلَّا ذُو حَظٍّ عَظِيمٍ (35)
"Repel evil with what is better. Then he, whom between you and him was enmity, will become like a close friend.
But none are given this quality except those who are patient .. and none are given this quality except those who have a *mighty great fortune*"
Nice reminder.JazakAllah khairReply
