Tafsir Ibn Kathir – Surah Furqan; Ayah 63
“And the servants of the Most Merciful are those who walk upon the earth easily, and when the ignorant address them, they say [words of] peace.” (Quran 25 : 63)
These are the attributes of the believing servants of Allah, (those who walk on the earth Hawna,) meaning that they walk with dignity and humility, not with arrogance and pride. This is like the ayah: (And walk not on the earth with conceit and arrogance…) (17:37). So these people do not walk with conceit or arrogance or pride. This does not mean that they should walk like sick people, making a show of their humility, for the leader of the sons of Adam (the Prophet) used to walk as if he was coming downhill, and as if the earth were folded up beneath him. What is meant here by Hawn is serenity and dignity, as the Messenger of Allah said: (When you come to the prayer, do not come rushing in haste. Come calmly and with tranquillity, and whatever you catch up with, pray, and whatever you miss, make it up.) (and when the foolish address them they say: “Salama.”) If the ignorant people insult them with bad words, they do not respond in kind, but they forgive and overlook, and say nothing but good words. This is what the Messenger of Allah did: the more ignorant the people, the more patient he would be.
