Mufti Menk tells us the manners of Sahaba.They never held abuse or used bad language to refer to anyone who they disagree with or insult anybody who is not in favour of their opinion or idea.
People are not the same. We differ in our shapes, looks, colours, way of thinking, and of course, in our opinions and points of views. Sometimes when a topic arises, some people might be the “pro” team and others in the “con” team. But is this a reason to fight over and have a war out of nothing over this topic? Did the “Sahaba” companionship of prophet Muhammad -peace be upon him- always agreed on each and everything? Or did they sometimes have their own disagreements and conflicts?
In this video, Shaykh Mufti Menk tells us about the manners of Sahaba and how when they disagreed they never held abuse or used bad language to refer to anyone who they disagree with or insult anybody who is not in favour of their opinion or idea. He goes on explaining how disagreeing should not be the reason behind grudges and how it is perfectly normal. He gives us advice about how to introduce our opinions in a mature way and make our words reply to those who disagree without compromising our own respect. Steering away from abusive language is what prophet Muhammed - peace be upon him- has encouraged us to do, as he -PBUH- said that a true believer would never insult and never be abusive.
