Allah has said in the Holy Qur’aan in the 49th Sura, al-Hujuraat [The Inner Apartments] الْحُجُرَات, Verse 2:
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لَا تَرْفَعُوا أَصْوَاتَكُمْ فَوْقَ صَوْتِ النَّبِيِّ وَلَا تَجْهَرُوا لَهُ بِالْقَوْلِ كَجَهْرِ بَعْضِكُمْ لِبَعْضٍ أَن تَحْبَطَ أَعْمَالُكُمْ وَأَنتُمْ لَا تَشْعُرُونَ
O Believers do not raise your voices above the pitch of the voice of the Holy Prophet [Peace upon him, his family & companions] and do not talk with him in the fashion, which you speak amongst yourselves. If you make even this slight unconscious mistake, all your virtuous acts [prayer (salaah), fasting, pilgrimage (hajj), alms (zakaat), and every act of virtue] will be annulled totally and you will not even know it.
What is this status? You will forgive any insult done to you but you will never forgive any insult done to your beloved. This is the law of love. If for a single error, of disrespect to Allah’s beloved, every act of virtue is annulled, how much must Allah love him?
