And if ye do catch them out, catch them out no worse than they catch you out: But if ye show patience, that is indeed the best (course) for those who are patient.
If you take retribution, then do so in proportion to the wrong done
to you. But if you can bear such conduct with patience, indeed that is best
for the steadfast.
Tafheem-ul-Quran - Abul Ala Maududi
Eğer ceza vermek isterseniz size yapılanın aynıyla mukabele edin. Sabrederseniz and olsun ki bu, sabredenler için daha iyidir.
And if you were to harm (them) in retaliation, harm them to the measure you were harmed. And if you opt for patience, it is definitely much better for those who are patient.
Mufti Taqi Usmani
