Repel Evil With the Best

"Repel evil with that which is best: We are well-acquainted with the things they say."(23:96)

Allah Almighty in the Noble Qur'an commands us in several places to return the evil that is done to us by others to not only with good, but with best!

"Repel evil with that which is best: We are well-acquainted with the things they say."(23:96)

"Nor can goodness and evil be equal. Repel (evil) with that is better: Then will he between whom and you was hatred become as it were your friend and intimate!"(41:34)

"Twice will they be given their reward, for that they have persevered, that they avert evil with good, and that they spend (in charity) out of what We have given them." (28:54)

Allah (swt) also says in Noble Verse 42:40

"The recompense for an injury is an injury equal thereto (in degree): but if a person forgives and makes reconciliation, his reward is due from Allah: for (Allah) Loves not those who do wrong."

Whether people speak evil of you, in your presence or behind your back, or they do evil to you in either of those ways, all is known to Allah Almighty. It is not for you to punish. Your best course is not to do evil in your turn, but to do what will best repel the evil. Two evils do not make a good.

The man who was in bondage of sin, you not only liberate from sin, but make him your greatest friend and helper in the cause of Allah Almighty!

Such is the alchemy of the Word of Allah Almighty! Your credit for returning evil with good and paying for charity is double. Also if you forgive and return the evil with good, then Allah Almighty will love you and your reward is due from Allah!
