Purification in Rejection

21May12

If you are rejected, what should you do? Should you get angry at that person and retaliate? As a matter of fact, you should be happy because Allah says,

وَإِن قِيلَ لَكُمُ ارْجِعُوا فَارْجِعُوا ۖ هُوَ أَزْكَىٰ لَكُمْ

If it is said to you that you should return, then return. That is better for you (purifying for your heart). [24:28]

Some of the sahabah, according to the tafseer of this ayah, used to go knocking on the doors just to be rejected. Why? Because they want to get that purification. This is not to say that we should call people today at the wrong time just to get rejected. But if this happens, then just be happy with it.
