“And not equal are the good deed and the bad. Repel [evil] by
that [deed] which is better
…” [Fussilat: 34]

If someone does bad to you, be patient
If someone harms you, be forgiving
If someone behaves ignorantly, be forbearing
If someone deals harshly, be gentle
If someone withholds from you, be generous
If someone wrongs you, be just
If someone argues with you, be silent
If someone opposes you, be well-wishing
If someone dejects you, be optimistic
If someone accuses you, be honest
If someone proves you wrong, be humble
If someone makes a mistake, be merciful

“…and thereupon the one whom between you and him is enmity
[will become] as though he was a devoted friend.”
[Fussilat: 34]
