I am aware of my failings when it comes to curbing indignation. It is a normal reaction to being treated rudely I reckon. Then again I must remember to reflect on self-behaviour rather than others's. It is easy to be 'good' when in company of good people. Hence when in company of brusqueness, it is up to the self to forgo the desire to retaliate & instead to remain kind & forgiving.
I'm re-reading In The Footsteps of The Prophet. It still is my favourite seerah book. I should post some notes here later.
