GREAT HADITH FOR THOSE TEMPTED TO ARGUE
I just read this Hadith, and MashaAllah, it's a real inspiration! Just had to share it!
Abu Hurairah (ral) narrates that a man abused Abu Bakr (ral) while Nabi (sallalahu alaihi wasallam) was sitting. Appreciating (the forbearance and patience of Abu Bakr (ral)), he kept smiling, but when the man went on length and Abu Bakr (ral) replied to some of what he said, Rasoolullah (sallalahu alaikhi wasallam) became angry and left.
Abu Bakr (ral) went after him and said: "Oh Rasoolullah (sallalahu alaihi wasallam)! He was abusing me in your presence but when I replied to some of what he said, you became angry and left. He replied, "There was an Angel with you, replying to him on your behalf but when you replied to him, Shaitan got in and I am not supposed to sit with Shaitan. He 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 Allah, Allah will help him out and strengthen him.
2- Anyone who begins to give intending thereby to unite ties of relationship, Allah provides for him with much more because of it.
3- Anyone who opens the door of begging, desiring to increase his wealth, Allah increases his scantiness because of it.

Isn't it a wonderful Hadith? Have to have this in mind the next time I'm tempted to argue!
May Allah help everyone reading this to act upon it!
