From my Facebook Wall (

A friend's inbox: 
To say someone calls him/her names just to slight and sought for advice on how to react. 

My response, shared:
"Should what every Tom, Dick & Harry say about you give you restless moments? Ok then, you are Queen Elizabeth of England. Does that make you the mother of Prince Charles? Definitely not. 

Another says you are Dangote, the richest guy in Africa, whereas you don't even have enough to buy a pair of shoes. Are you Aliko? Lolzzz

Now, let's be sober a bit, someone says you are Salman Rushdie, the guy who authored the blasphemous Satanic Verses. Does that make you the man who is making all efforts to survive, only to die and eventually meet His Lord and Maker for what he truly deserves, good or bad, as a recompense? Of course you are neither the first, second nor the trinity...

So brace yourself. You'll hear much worse, see much worse, feel much worse, it really doesn't matters.
What should matter then?

Well, how pleased is your Lord Allaah SWT with you, and how pleased are you with yourself towards your Lord Allaah? Now that, that's what should really matter.

Everything else, leave it to time. It makes into nothing what was once the most important of a mind's occupation! And remember, Allaah Owns Time!"

With the hope that these few words would suffice...

Musa Baba Jibril Wrote:

JazakAllahu khairan for the share. As long as you shine, give, produce, and have an effect upon others, then disapproval and condemnation will be your lot in life. Until you escape from people by finding a tunnel in the ground or a ladder leading to the sky, they will not desist from censuring you, from finding fault in your character. For that reason, as long as you are from the denizens of earth, expect to be hurt, to be insulted, and to be criticized.

And here is something you should contemplate: a person who is sitting on the ground does not fall, and people do not kick a dead dog. Therefore people's falsehood toward you can be attributed to you surpassing them in righteousness, knowledge, manners, or wealth. In their eyes you are a transgressor whose wrongs cannot be atoned for unless you abandon your talents and strip yourself of all praiseworthy qualities, so that you become stupid, worthless, and to them, innocuous. This result is exactly what they want for you.

So remain firm and patient when facing people's falsehood and criticism. If you are wounded by their words and let them have an influence over you, you will have realized their hopes for them. Instead, forgive them by showing them the most beautiful of manners. Turn away from them and do not feel distressed by their schemes. Their disapproval of you only increases you in worth and merit.

Verily, you will not be able to silence them, but you will be able to bury their criticisms by turning away from them and dismissing what they have to say.
"Say: 'Perish in your rage". (Qur 'an 3: 119)

In fact, you will be able to increase them in their rage by increasing your merits and developing your talents. 

If you desire to be accepted by all and loved by all, you desire the unattainable.

It's absolutely true, Names calling does not change the person. 

A small girl in a school in UK was the centre of stigmatization by her colleagues, calling her mother 'a prostitute'. But the girl just laugh and reply, "She's not a prostitue, she's my mother"

So whatever name a person calls you, it's like pouring water on a person in the swimming pool!

That's the point!!!
