So be patient over what they say and exalt [Allāh] with praise of your Lord before the rising of the sun and before its setting; and during periods of the night [exalt Him] and at the ends of the day, that you may be satisfied. [Taha:130]
Recently I was speaking to someone about Islam and just by talking about it this person became extremely angry. They began shouting and cursing me and I did not know what to do. I was quiet as I did not know how to answer them back and later I felt very useless and insignificant. Now that I read this verse it really makes sense that we should stay patient because if we also turn around and behave in the same manner they do there will be no difference between us. Instead when facing a difficult situation call upon the one who knows everyone, Allah (Swt).
