The great man that is Imam Ahmed bin Hanbal. Tortured unjustly for years by 3 successive rulers for the beliefs he held, when he was eventually released, he was offered the opportunity for revenge and refused.

“What does a man lose if Allah does not punish someone for his sake”

I wonder: How many of us could inherit this prophetic sunnah that this great imam displayed?

In the crazy times we live in, how many of us would have it in us to forgive those wronging us?
