With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Surah 23 (The Believers)
How to respond to evil acts
Repel evil with that which is best: We are well acquainted with the things they say.
The doing of good in return for evil is the common teaching of all prophets.But nowhere is the principle put in such a beautiful and practical form as in the Qur’an. In repelling evil the rule to be observed is that it must be repelled by what is best. If you can repel an evil by doing good for it, it is the course recommended; but if punishment is necessary, that would be the better course. It is the only workable principle of life. The response needs to be for reformation and not for revenge.
