No Revenge

November 24, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

Narrated ‘Aisha (may Allah be pleased with her):

“Whenever Allah’s Apostle, Muhammad (may Allah’s peace be upon him), was given the choice of one of two matters he would choose the easier of the two as long as it was not sinful to do so, but if it was sinful, he would not approach it.  Allah’s Apostle never took revenge over anybody for his own sake but (he did) only when Allah’s legal bindings were outraged, in which case he would take revenge for Allah’s sake.”

[Sahih Bukhari; Volume 8, Book 73, Number 147]
