FORGIVENESS OF INJURIES Enjoined in the Qur’an in the following words (Surah xlii 38): “Let the recompense of evil be only a like evil – but he who forgiveth and maketh peace, shall find his reward for it from God; verily He loveth not those who act unjustly. And there shall be no way open (i.e. no blame) against those who, after being wronged, avenge themselves ….. Whoso beareth wrongs and forgiveth – this is a bounden duty.”
