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]

The Prophet (may Allah’s peace be upon him) said:

O people, calmly, calmly.

O people, go calmly for walking in haste is not from righteousness.

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]
