Assalaamu ‘Alaikum,

You can be either polite or rude. Once the words leave your mouth, you can’t take it back. About two weeks back, as I was coming out from a hypermarket, I needed a taxi. I saw a taxi approaching the road I was on, so I extended my hand out to stop it. As I opened the door, I heard a voice from behind. It was a woman saying in Urdu, “HELLO! Taxi hum nahe rokaa hai”. (She said that she stopped the taxi) I replied, “Ok, no problem.” and I stepped back.

A boy (most probably her son) accompanied her. He was old enough maybe 17 or 18 years of age. She seemed a bit old. Even though I could not make out properly as she was fully covered (including face cover).

I don’t know where they were standing nor did I notice her or her son stopping the taxi. But I did not mind whether the taxi stopped for her or for me. The thing I felt bad about was the way she spoke! She sounded so rude! After all, it was just a taxi! How was she so sure that the taxi driver saw her and not me? As when I had opened the door of the taxi, the driver too did not mention that he stopped for them!

When they left, a man came forward and stopped a taxi for me. I thanked him and went on my way. In the taxi, I was almost in tears. As she being a Muslim sister behaved so rudely with me. Whereas that man who saw what happened stopped the taxi for me regardless of his religion etc.

I wish she rethinks about her way of dealing with people. And next time thinks before she speaks. I did not want to create a scene on the road so kept silent. And keeping her old age in mind, I thought it is better to ignore.  Personally, I can’t tolerate rudeness especially on petty issues.

May Allah forgive us all, Aameen.

  1. Ahh have we all not experience something similar?!

    You know I’m usually a very in-yo-face person, but there are days (when my Iman is high I guess) when something like that happens and I just keep quiet and shake my head and say SubhanAllah.

    • Assalaamu ‘Alaikum, JazakAllah for visiting my blog. In life we meet all kinds of people. In certain serious cases I do step up and in such small things, I think let it be.

  2. Dear sister, Salamun Alaikum.
    There is no post since a long time, I hope everything is fine with you, Inshaa’Allah.

  3. May Allah make things easy for you. Aameen.

Have your say...... :)
