Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | Discover God | Al-Risala February 1988
Two of the attributes of the believer, as described in the Quran, are firstly, his avoidance of gross sins and indecencies and secondly, his willingness to forgive when angered, (42:37). This means, in other words, that the believer does not retaliate. He does not return evil for evil. It is quite human to become angry at the wrongs done to one, but the believer does not return anger for anger: he returns forgiveness.
