For those who are tempted to argue:


بسم الله والحمد لله والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله ، وبعد

Abu Hurairah رضي الله عنه narrates that a man abused Abu Bakr رضي الله عنه while the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم was sitting. Appreciating (the forbearance and patience of Abu Bakr رضي الله عنه), he صلى الله عليه وسلم kept smiling, but when the man went on length and Abu Bakr رضي الله عنه replied to some of what he said, the Messenger of Allaah صلى الله عليه وسلم became angry and left.

Abu Bakr رضي الله عنه went after him and said: Oh Messenger of Allaah صلى الله عليه وسلم! He was abusing me in your presence but when I replied to some of what he said, you became angry and left. Heصلى الله عليه وسلم replied, “There was an Angel with you, replying to him on your behalf but when you replied to him, Shaitaan got in and I am not supposed to sit with Shaitaan.” He صلى الله عليه وسلم then added: “Oh Abu Bakr! There are three things, all of which are true:

1- Anyone who is wronged and he ignores it for the sake of Allaah, Allaah will help him out and strengthen him.

2- Anyone who begins to give intending thereby to unite ties of kinship, Allaah provides for him with much more because of it.

3- Anyone who opens the door of begging, desiring to increase his wealth, Allaah increases his scantiness because of it.”


[Musnad Ahmad (9624) and graded as “Jayyid” by Shaikh al-Albaanee in al-Saheehah (2231)]
