What type of society are we creating? If we allow for people to be insulted and we ask them to not respond on their own behalf.
Allah tasks us with responding on behalf of other people. The prophet (saw) He said whoever defends their brother or sister in their absence that Allah would remove the fire from that person’s face on the Day of Judgment.
It’s also an authentic Hadith of the prophet salallahu alihi wasalam. He said that whoever defends his brother or sister in their absence when they are being insulted, Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala will appoint an angel that would defend their flesh on the Day of Judgment over the bridge.
But the flip side of that the prophet (saw) and whoever disgraces his brother or sister will be suspended over the bridge over Hellfire on the day of judgement until they are interrogated for what they have done.
When we respond on behalf of our brother or sister so that they don’t have to respond for themselves, we basically are playing the role of the Angel. So how beautiful is it that we start to be Angelic and character the way we seek to be Angelic with our worship.
