The extreme nature of many things that have recently occurred in the world including the postings of those ignorant of the ramifications of their words earn severe reactions, potentially very disruptive to their parties.
A patient person might attempt benefitting the Perfected and Noble Cause of Allah and His Messenger (May Allah Shower Grace upon him and Grant him Peace) by refraining from exhibiting uncontrolled rage or otherwise behaving imprudently, and instead looking to the best Guidance for the proper action.
The signs of a hypocrite are more than three:
1) That they behave imprudently in great stress or difficulty.
2) That they betray their trust.
3) That they lie.
(From one of the wives of Ar Rasulullah [S.'A.S.)---
A group of Jews entered upon the Prophet and said, "As-Samu-Alaikum." (death be upon you). I understood it and said, "Wa-Alaikum As-Samu wal-la'n. (death and the curse of Allah be Upon you)." Allah's Apostle said "Be calm, O 'Aisha! Allah loves that one should be kind and lenient in all matters." I said, "O Allah's Apostle! Haven't you heard what they (the Jews) have said?" Allah's Apostle said, "I have said (to them) "And upon you."
His (S.'A.S.) prayers were always answered and theirs would never be, so there was not cause to become impatient or abusive.
There are many lies and misrepresentations that the enemy of mankind named As Shaitan Ir Rajeem (The Evil one, the Accursed Outcast) enjoins on those who would listen and obey him. The Absolute Truth of Allah (Al Haqq) has "knocked the brains out of the Batil" (Falsehood) and the victory of Allah, already, is eternal. People should try to keep to what will benefit them instead of evil, even though it be attractive, ornamented with the intense pleasures of the world.
We are human; we should examine that which we encounter in each situation with correct wisdom and glean the point and react appropriately.
In response to Susan from Italy; I love Arabia but I live in the U.S. and don't currently have means to make pilgrimmage to Allah's House. That is a good place, and for now my duties are here in the U.S.
My bloodline dates back through the Civil (North) and the Revolutionary Wars and into English "Nobility" and German as well (2 families of German), but my bloodline will not save me from the Fire of Hell, nor can any load-bearing soul bear the burden of another.
You each have a duty in life to be good to parents (even if they mess up), kind to the elderly (even if they become grumpy), and obey our Lord Who has Created us and Sustains us all.
I hope among you there will arise those with the endowments necessary to be good and obey Allahu Ta'Aalaa who has sent us millenia of example and tomes of His Word including the truly Noble Quran Al Kareem which is eternally intact including NOW.
Yahdiykum Allahu Wa Salaamun. (May Allah Guide you and Peace).
