An eye for an eye is a Biblical teaching ... it was issued according to that time.

Islam teaches about the moderate way, preferably the pardoning but when needed punishment may become necessary too.

Yes. One should attempt to establish peaceful measures first.

I strongly disagree with the Qoute.
If i have a little doubt to lose my eye in result of any action i wont commit it at the first place.

And aslo Mahatma Gandhi is not one of favourite personalities.

Doing some thing and knowing that same will be done to me makes a good equilibrium and that is where moderation prevails.

Kick Back as the last resort.
Keep the law of the garbage in mind :-)
By no means, I am saying that you let others take you for granted. When other's do wrong to you, you should tell them they did wrong,but try not to gear up for revenge.
Peace!

ok
Last night i was almost cought up in a fight. My cousin and me were going out and a boy passing by said something to him which i wont like to mentioned they argued and were about to fight i interfered and tried to stop them i pulled my cousin back and said to the other one to go home. But he was still saying bad words and comming as if he was going to hit. I didnt like it and when saw this i went red hot with anger. Here is when my mode chnaged automatically and i push him so hard that do what you can do i am standing here. He went away saying words in his mouth.
i totally agree with the things which you(saira) are saying but when you get in a situation like this these things become combination of words with no meanings.

I later on came to know that my cousin and that boy already had issues and he was was not just a passer by.

Syra said...

Next time you are in such a situation I suggest you tell the dude to back off in a decent way so that he doesn't carry an ill will against you. Being the elder brother, perhaps you can sit with both the boys and try to establish harmony b/w the two.

imran said...

i am not the elder. All are of same age group. and as i told you they have chronic issues, family level issues. for atlest 4-5 times i moved away them from each other and then my cousin stood calm and he kept on doing this and here is when i lost my head. but thanks god it did stop there as i was at an alien place and the boy was in from of his house.
