Repel Evil with Good

February 7, 2012 Leave a comment

Almighty Allaah said (translation):

The good deed and the evil deed cannot be equal.  Repel (the evil) with one which is better (i.e. Allah ordered the faithful believers to be patient at the time of anger, and to excuse those who treat them badly), then verily! he, between whom and you there was enmity, (will become) as though he was a close friend.

[Quran, Surat Fussilat (41):34]

One should not push to get to the Black Stone (during Hajj or ‘Umrah) as the Prophet (may Allah’s peace be upon him) said:

‘Umar, you are a strong man, so do not harm the weak and when you wish to touch it [Black Stone], wait until it becomes free and if not then face it and say Allahu Akbar.

[Ahmad; as quoted in ‘A Manual on the Rites of Hajj,’ by Sh. Alee ibn Wahf al-Qahtaani]

Narrated Abu Ayyub Al-Ansari (may Allah be pleased with him):

Allah’s Apostle Muhammad (may Allah’s peace be upon him) said:

“It is not lawful for a man to desert his brother Muslim for more than three nights. (It is unlawful for them that) when they meet, one of them turns his face away from the other, and the other turns his face from the former, and the better of the two will be the one who greets the other first.”

[Sahih Bukhari; Volume 8, Book 73, Number 100]
