16:125 Call to the Way of your Lord with wisdom and beautiful exhortation. Reason with them most decently. Your Lord is best Aware of him who strays from His Path, and He is best Aware of the upright.
16:126 Hence, if you have to respond to an attack in argument, respond only to the extent of the attack levelled against you. But to bear with patience is indeed far better for the steadfast.
16:127 Endure then, with patience, always remembering that it is none but God Who gives you the strength to endure (O Prophet). Do not grieve over them, nor be distressed by the false arguments they contrive.
16:128 For, certainly, God is with the upright, and the benefactors of humanity.
N2, Ajami, Hanafi, Ahmedi, Shia etc etc, what is the difference?
Criticising and ridiculing are two different things. We all have a laugh at the antics of those who put Bukhari ahead of Allah, but we use the Quran to challenge their falsehoods.
They ridicule the Quran by ignoring its teachings.
I am guilty of sarcasm and witty one liners for a ‘cheap shot’, but they sometimes deserve this sort of response when logic and reason does not have an effect on them.
An eye for an eye!
