If a non-Muslim curses a Muslim, will the Muslim's life be in turmoil?

I am the Muslim in the question. I don't have much knowledge about cursing in Islam. Only that our Prophet (PBUH) stayed away from cursing anybody or any sect.

Whenever something bad happens to me, my thoughts go back to the non-Muslim who cursed me. (It was because of a misunderstanding.)

Briefly speaking, let’s illustrate it by presenting a related hadith (tradition). It is said Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him and his family) said (its approximate translation):

Whenever curse gets out of the mouth of the person who curses, it sees, if it find a way towards the mentioned thing, it goes towards that, otherwise it will return to the individual who has cursed.

As much as I research, I didn’t find if a non-Muslim …, but it can be inferred from the hadith (and other hadiths) that the curse won’t reach/annoy the person who doesn’t deserve of that curse. It means: No curse would be effective against you if you have not done any bad thing to be deserved that.


Let’s present another related hadith from Imam Muhammad al-Baqir (a.s.) as the fifth Imam of Shia Islam, who said:

Refrain from cursing Mo’men (believer), that it will come back to you (yourselves)

And so forth.
