Just ranting

Today while walking to the shops with the kids, a bus went past and there was a middle aged couple sat on there, I glimpsed briefly, but I could see they were having a good stare and a giggle, like they really wanted me to notice them doing it, the kids noticed and told me what they were doing. I responded to them by saying, there's alot of narrow minded people about, who laugh at people who look/dress different to them, and obviously haven't got any manners, I said let them laugh, we don't want to be like them. My son who is 6 said he laughed back at them, lol.
Just thinking about it now, makes me think how pathetic and childish these kind of people are, they don't even take into consideration the kids, I would feel ashamed if my mum or any family member were the type to do this to people, alhamdulillaah they are not. And I myself am not the type to act like this towards people.

Just wanted to have a little rant about this, I know it's nothing big, but these little things do your head in sometimes, especially when your kids see it, and you have to explain to them the ignorance and stupidness of some.

Umm Khadijah... it's like they look at you waiting for you to look back at them so you can see them laughing... what, all of a sudden are you to feel ashamed and take everything off? That's the vibe they give off anyways... ignorance of humans will cease to amaze me.... yeah, teach the kids to smile back at them- they'll be confused! lol

Exactly, you wonder what their motive is, I think it is to make you feel belittled and like you said 'ashamed' which we will never be insha Allaah, Na'uthu Billaah.
Next time I should wave, I think I did that before, they surely don't expect it.

I know exactly how you feel. I find it just plain stupid. Why is it that people treat others the way they would not want to be treated?

Alhamdulilah for Islaam. I just ignore them, make du'a, and keep it movin'.

Yes sis, the best thing to do is to just ignore this kind of childish behaviour, and just remind ourselves that the prophet sallallaahu alayhi wasallam and his companions (may Allaah have mercy upon them all, ameen) experienced alot worse subhanAllaah, and were very patient with it. May Allaah give us patience like them ameen.
