Hi Fatima

I think i found the extract from the Quaran which mohammad taught you which backs up your quote "

our prophet muhammed used to say : you shall replay to an insult with a good deed.."

CENTER = The Law of Equivalence

45. And we decreed for them in it that:
the life for the life, the eye for the eye,
the nose for the nose, the ear for the ear,
the tooth for the tooth, and an equivalent injury for any injury.
If one forfeits what is due to him as a charity, it will atone for
his sins. Those who do not rule in accordance with
GOD's revelations are the unjust.

.... Hang on.... i think it means totally the opposite, cause here it says to return to the aggressor what harm was done to you so the good deed you talk about is in fact a act of violence.

... why am i not surprised...i think you read that in the bible or other religious book.

Submitting....
