Combatting Evil with Goodness

 

They will be given their reward twice over, because they have been steadfast and because they ward off the bad with the good and give from what We have provided for them. (Qur'an, 28:54) A good action and a bad action are not the same. Repel the bad with something better and, if there is enmity between you and someone else, he will become like a bosom friend. (Qur'an, 41:34)

Bible Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult, but with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing. (1 Peter, 3:9)

But I tell you who hear me: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, and pray for those who mistreat you. If someone strikes you on one cheek, turn to him the other also. If someone takes your cloak, do not stop him from taking your tunic. (Luke, 6:27-29) Torah If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat; if he is thirsty, give him water to drink. In doing this... and the LORD will reward you. (Proverbs, 25:21-22)
