“The best way to destroy an enemy is to make him a friend.” ~ Abraham Lincoln
> 1 Peter 3:9: Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult. On the contrary, repay evil with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing.
> Romans 12:17-20: 17 Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. 18 If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. 19 Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord. 20 On the contrary: “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.”
> Proverbs 17:13: If a man pays back evil for good, evil will never leave his house.
> The Noble Quran, 7:199: Hold to forgiveness; command what is right; but turn away from the ignorant.
> Noble Verse 41:34: Nor can goodness and evil be equal. Repel (evil) with that is better: Then will he between whom and thee was hatred become as it were thy friend and intimate!
