Rejoice in being persecuted for righteousness'
sake. Smile back. Jesus (sws) is reported to have said:
Blessed are ye when men shall revile you and persecute
you for my name's sake, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely.
Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in Heaven, for so
persecuted they the Prophets which were before you.
Remember, in such situations the
best way to repel some evil hurled at you is to return the
favour with goodness. For that is what will show to all the
difference between you and your opponent, even to your
opponent himself. (Also see the Qur’ān 41:34).
