Words of wisdom from Imam Ash-Shafi'ee (rahimahumAllah)

words of wisdom from Imam Ash-Shafi'ee (rahimahumAllah)

"The foolish one addresses me with words of disgrace, but I hate to respond to him in a similar manner. The more ignorant he proves, the more patient I become. Just like the incense; the more it's burnt, the more it releases its fragrance."

"When the foolish one speaks, do not reply to him, for better than a response (to him) is silence, and if you speak to him you have aided him, and if you left him (with no reply) in extreme sadness he dies."
