How Did Our Prophet Deal With Insults

How Did Our Prophet Deal With Insults

Of the many reasons i am absolutely infatuated with the prophet (Peace Be Upon Him). One of them that sticks out in my mind is the way he deal with people that were insulting and demeaning towards him. One time he's sitting in the company of his best friend and his most heartend believer, Abu Bakr (May God Be Pleased With Him) and they're sitting together and some people came and started heckling them.

And they started doing so by cursing the prophets (Peace Be Upon Him). Actually no, not by cursing him. But cursing Abu Bakr, his friend. And cursing him, his mother, his sisters family, his daughters etc. And Abu Bakr is sitting there patiently knowing that's what's demanded of him. He needs to be able to take these insults and these horrendous words. And respond in a civilized quiet fashion.
But they realized that they can't get anything out of Abu Bakr, so they start turning to the Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him). And they start cursing him and saying things about him which at that point Abu Bakr couldn't take it. Because his love of the prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) so intense.

That he just got up and he just started trying to stop them from saying the words that they were saying. And the moment he got up and tried to deal with them. The Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) himself got up and started walking away.
So know Abu Bakr is in a bind should he deal with these fools. That were making fun of the Prophet or should he go after his beloved Prophet.
So he decides to leave those guys. They're not worth it. He goes after the Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) himself. And he says to him, why did you leave?
And he said while you were sitting there as they were cursing you. There were angels surrounding us. All of them declaring that Abu Bakr is committed to the truth. And as soon as you got up in anger even to defend me, the angels flew away. And i don't sit in the company where angels aren't there. Subhan'Allah (Glory to God),

He's telling Abu Bakr Al Siddiq, what it means to be in angelic presence. Muslims, our love of the Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) has only increased because of the people who hated him. Who said the worst things about him. He was actually only able to respond to them at the lowest level with silence, with nothing. Just walking away. And otherwise he would even reciprocate with loving words with kind words.
And that's something incredibly admirable to look up to and a goal and a standard to aspire towards. And i hope that our dawah (Teaching Good) In Sha Allah (If Allah Wills) lives up to the remarkable Prophetic standard.

As a human we must obey to God and his rules. Then only we can qualify to enter paradise. Or we will send to hell. Do more good deeds. Help people. Respect and care parents. Help homeless people. Be kind to children. Respect all. May Allah (SWT) protect us and show us the right path.. Aameen...
