Letter-21: How to Deal with Aggression?

IN THE NAME OF ALLAH, THE BENEFICENT, THE MERCIFUL

To Whom It May Concern

1. Pardon:

> ” Whosoever forbears and forgives, verily this is an act of great (genuine) determination” 

Al-Quran: Chapter 25: (Shura 42: 43)

Note:
An extraordinary reward for those who forgive.

2. The Proportionate Self Defence:

> ” Whosoever defends (vindicates) himself, after being oppressed, then there is no way of blaming him”

Al-Quran: Chapter 25: (Shura 42: 41) 

Notes:
(i) Self-defence is an authorized option.
(ii) Reprisal must not exceed the offense.

3. Injustice and Aggression Must be encountered:

> “The way (of blame) is only against those who do injustice to people and are aggressive in the land for no reason>>>”

Al-Quran:  Chapter 25: (Shura 42: 42) 

> ” And what has come upon you that you do not fight in the way of Allah, whilst the weak among men, women and children (in helplessness) say: Our Lord! get us out of this town whose inhabitants are tyrants, and appoint us from You a guardian, and appoint for us from you a helper>>>” 

Al-Quran: Chapter-5: Nisa (04: 75)
