Ignoring the criticism of people

Q: Some people are backbitting me and teasing me on my shortcomings and let each other know about my ayaibs, when they meet me this thing hurts me and causes severe pain to my emotions. I am generally a quite person and don’t say anything or reply, this is a kind of fitna which I am going through. Please Advise me on this matter.


A: Do not pay attention to the criticisms of such people and ignore them.  

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
