"Jesus said show your other cheek when you are slapped..His teachings were necessary because the followers of Judaisim become more rough in a period of time and was very keen in only punishing people. Islam never teaches to show the other cheek when you are slapped ..Islam teaches that if you got hurt, you have the right to hurt them in the same way but forgiving them is better !!. It chooses the middle way for normal humans. To choose the way of Jesus one has to be a saint"
This verse from Jesus will reply to you
The one who comes from above is above all. The one who is of the earth is earthly and speaks of earthly things. But the one who comes from heaven (is above all).
He testifies to what he has seen and heard, but no one accepts his testimony.
Whoever does accept his testimony certifies that God is trustworthy.
For the one whom God sent speaks the words of God
Peace be with you
