When some one hurts us, God provides a best option for society and us. But it requires a lot of patience and wisdom and requires us to be humble by removing arrogance from us. But God warns the devil will work to derail us. It is most rewarding, if we can work out with patience to ignore our differences and embrace our friends.
وَلَا تَسۡتَوِى ٱلۡحَسَنَةُ وَلَا ٱلسَّيِّئَةُۚ ٱدۡفَعۡ بِٱلَّتِى هِىَ أَحۡسَنُ فَإِذَا ٱلَّذِى بَيۡنَكَ وَبَيۡنَهُ ۥ عَدَٲوَةٌ۬ كَأَنَّهُ ۥ وَلِىٌّ حَمِيمٌ۬ (٣٤) سُوۡرَةُ فُصّلَت
As-Saf:The good deed and the evil deed cannot be equal. Repel (the evil) with one which is better, then verily! he, between whom and you there was enmity, as though he was a close friend. 41.34)
For building a cooperating, diverse, inclusive society and community, we all need to work and build a good legacy and footprint for us. Let us all be a building brick for building a peaceful and helpful community where we live.
