[9] Series: Ten Means for the One Seeking Allaah’s Protection against Magic, The Evil Eye and Envy

The ninth means (of protection): To eradicate the (intense anger) of the envier, the transgressor and the harmful person by being good to him, offering him sincere advice and being compassionate towards him. Allaah (The Most High) said:

وَلَا تَسْتَوِي الْحَسَنَةُ وَلَا السَّيِّئَةُ ۚ ادْفَعْ بِالَّتِي هِيَ أَحْسَنُ فَإِذَا الَّذِي بَيْنَكَ وَبَيْنَهُ عَدَاوَةٌ كَأَنَّهُ وَلِيٌّ حَمِيمٌ

وَمَا يُلَقَّاهَا إِلَّا الَّذِينَ صَبَرُوا وَمَا يُلَقَّاهَا إِلَّا ذُو حَظٍّ عَظِيمٍ

”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. But none is granted it (the above quality) except those who are patient, and none is granted it except the owner of the great portion (of the happiness in the Hereafter i.e. Paradise and in this world of a high moral character)”. [Surah Fussilat. Aayaat 34-35]

And ponder upon the situation of that Prophet (alayhis-salaam) about whom our Prophet (sallal laahu alayhi wasallam) informed us that he was beaten by his people and caused him to bleed, and he was cleaning the blood off his face and saying, ‘’O Allaah! Forgive my people, for indeed they do not know (i.e. they do not posses knowledge)’’. [Sahih Al-Bukhaari 3477]
