What should we do in order expand our hearts, and so as not to be touchy and resentful in the face of unwanted words and deeds?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

As man is busy with lofty feelings, he gets rid of simple, worldly feelings. The higher the purpose of life, the more distant man keeps from minor issues. The following statement of Badiuzzaman Said Nursi, who knows no limits related to the service of belief in conveying the message of Islam:

"They ask me: ‘Why do you attack this and that?’ I am not aware of it. There is a great conflagration before me, the flames of which are touching the skies. My children are burning in it. My belief has caught fire too, and is burning. I am racing to put out the fire and save my belief. If someone wants to hold me up on the way, or I trip on him, what importance has it? What importance has such a minor incident in the face of that conflagration? Narrow minds! Narrow views!" (Tarihçe-i Hayat, Tahliller)
