People these days (esp Muslim youth) lack tolerance, kindness and respecting others! Where as Islam teaches us how to pay respect to our elders, ulama, teachers and express kindness to children, needy and those who are weaker then us and puts great emphasis on such issues to make us better believers. Allah calls all people to live by the moral values, He sets so that compassion, mercy, peace and love can be experienced all over the world. “O You who believe! Enter absolutely into peace (Islam). Do not follow in the footsteps of satan. He is an outright enemy to you.” (Holy Quran: 2, 208)
There are also many narrations from the life of our beloved prophet Sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam .... Abdullah ibn Amr reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “He who does not show mercy to our young ones or recognize the rights of our elders is not one of us.” Musnad Aḥmad 7033
Abd Shuraib al-Adawi reported: My ears listened and my eye saw when Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) spoke and said: He who believes In Allah and the hereafter should show respect to the guest even with utmost kindness and courtesy. They said: Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him), what is this utmost kindness and courtesy? He replied: It is for a day and a night. Hospitality extends for three days, and what is beyond that is a Sadaqa for him; and he who believes in Allah and the Hereafter should say something good or keep quiet. Sahih Muslim, Book 31, Hadith 15
And never forget respecting others be it due to their age, religion or what ever reason it may be will only return respect back to you and make you a better Muslim in the eyes of the world .
May Allah beautify us with the light of iman,a'ameen.
