Hello Plato,

It is not true. Rasool never take personal revenge, if he were to take personal revenges then Meccans were mass murdered not mass forgiven

Personal revenge means to punish someone or teach lesson to appease one's own desire.

Let me tell you the story of Ali the close companion of Muhammad (sws)

Ali was fighting with non-believer and he defeated him by throwing down and putting a sword on his neck. Before beheading him, he asked him to accept Islam and save his life. This infuriated the pagan and he spitted on Ali. When he spat on him, he left him and asked him to go away.

Pagan was very astonished on Ali's behavior; he was expecting that Ali would behead him immediately after his spitting on his face but quite opposite had happened. He was so curious to know what Ali has made him to do it.

Later he asked him, why this behavior. He replied, I was fighting for God and about to kill you for God, but when you spat on me, I got angry on it and if in that moment I would kill you, then my action was not for God but for my own self, so I let you go free.

Thank you
