Ayah - New York, USA
Today I was on the subway sitting next to a lady. The subway then suddenly came to a stop and I naturally leaned to the right for a few seconds and my arm slightly touched the lady sitting to my right. She looked at me and very rudely told me to get my arm off of her. Even though I didn't appreciate the attitude she was giving me, and even though I could have easily started an argument with this lady, I responded with a sincere apology because I didn't find the need to be rude, but more importantly, because I wanted the people around us on the train to realize how polite Muslims are, and that Islam teaches Muslims to behave with the best of manners even when they are mistreated or disrespected.
