With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Sura Fussilat (41)
41:33. who is better In speech than one who calls (men) to Allah, works righteousness, and says, “I am of those who bow In Islam”?
41:34. nor can goodness and evil be equal. repel (evil) with what is better: then will He between whom and Thee was hatred become As it were Thy friend and intimate!
41:35. and no one will be granted such goodness except those who exercise patience and self-restraint,- none but persons of the greatest good fortune.
41:36. and if (at any time) an incitement to discord is made to Thee by the evil one, seek refuge In Allah. He is the one who hears and knows all things.
Advice is given to the believers to repel hostility and harshness with kindness and gentlness. The one who will overlook the faults of others even when one knows that they are in the wrong, is the one gifted with Sabr (enduarance). This is excellent advice especially when involved in preaching Allah’s message and being faced with hostility.
16:125. invite (all) to the way of Thy Lord with wisdom and preaching; and argue with them in ways that are best and most gracious: for thy Lord knoweth best, who have strayed from His path, and who receive guidance.
