Bismi Llāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm:
وَإِذَا خَاطَبَهُمُ الْجَاهِلُونَ قَالُوا سَلَامًا
(Qur’ān 25:63). ‘Wa ‘Idhā Khātabahumu Al-Jāhilūna Qālū Salāmāan’, ‘And when the ignorant address them [harshly], they say [words of] peace.’
Mankind does everything according to their egos. And those who obey their egos are ignorant. Those who don’t do what Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla says and don’t accept it are ignorant. Whoever they are, they are worthless.
Some people get angry at others by saying they said so and so. Don’t interact much with ignorant ones. There are stubborn ones. There are stubborn ignorant people. You cannot explain anything to them. You can’t explain because their understanding is that little.
People who are clever go on the way of Allah ﷻ. They strive to carry out Allah’s ﷻ orders. Certainly, they can’t do everything. Everyone has a different level. The more they can do, the higher their rank will increase. But what is important is that they do it.
Some people accept when you speak to them. You can explain things to them. But to people who are stubborn and seek argument, you say a few words. Clever people understand the level and mind of the people on front of them. If they are ignorant and from those who don’t understand, no need to talk to them. Don’t let them commit more sin, and don’t bother yourself. Therefore, interacting with ignorant ones is not good.
Certainly, everyone should learn. That is why Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla made it Fard for people to learn through our Holy Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam. The first order was to read and learn. To learn what? It is not studying at universities. It is to study the way of Allah ﷻ, to walk on the way ordered by Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla. That is the knowledge. And the rest: people may learn what they need to manage in this world and to sustain their life. That is step by step as well.
Therefore, don’t try to learn or teach people absolutely everything, because it may distress you. Ignorant people know neither limits, nor borders, nor Adab. Therefore, when you meet such people and speak to them, if they know, they know. If they don’t, don’t bother at all. Stay quiet. They may speak as much as they want. When they don’t see any interaction, they will shut up and leave by themselves. May Allah ﷻ protect us. May Allah ﷻ protect us all from ignorance.
Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
