92. Chapter: On Dignity and calmness

Allah Almighty says, "The slaves of the All Merciful are those who walk lightly on the earth and, who, when the ignorant speak to them, say, 'Peace.'" (25:63)

703. 'A'isha said, "I never saw the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, laugh so much that the inside of his mouth showed. He used only to smile." [Agreed upon]
