So be patient, [O Muhammad], as were those of determination among the messengers and do not be impatient for them. It will be – on the Day they see that which they are promised – as though they had not remained [in the world] except an hour of a day. [This is] notification. And will [any] be destroyed except the defiantly disobedient people? [Al Ahqaaf:35]
Recently I was talking to someone about Islam and the concept of God. They did not even want to hear about it and straight away told me that they were not interested; as if I was selling them some kind of cheap long distance line. I realized at this point that I was becoming very heated and upset because he was not even trying to listen to what I had to say. For me when I read this verse I realized that I should just do my job of warning and leave the rest to Allah (swt). I should not wish any bad for that person and if they do not want to listen then I have done my job. I honestly understand why the Prophets were chosen, had we been in their place we would have raging outbursts regularly.
