Are you one of them? Assess yourself and find out what qualities have been granted to you by the Ar-Rahman’s Taufiq. Which traits do you need to develop next by Allah’s (swt) will to attain the status of men and women of Ar-Rahman?
They walk gently
“And the servants of the Most Merciful are those, who walk upon the earth easily…” (Al-Furqan 25:63)
Ar-Rahman describes the gait of His exclusive men and women. They walk with grace, dignity and humility. Their body posture shows no sign of arrogance, lethargy or ostentation. Why did Allah (swt) mention this particularly? What difference does it make if anyone hobbles, wobbles or strikes his heels with pride? Ibad-ur-Rahman are worshippers from head to toe.
They offer Salam to the ignorant
“… and when the ignorant address them (harshly), they say (words of) peace.” (Al-Furqan 25:63)
The popular culture celebrates tit-for-tat speech. In fact, it is considered a skill to outdo somebody with your forceful talk (virtual or in person). Ibad-ur-Rahman, on the contrary, are dear to Allah (swt) because they do not engage in ill reactionary conversation when the ignorant address them. Nobody can shake their calm demeanor, as they are mindful that Allah (swt) is watching and hearing them.
