Acting good to those who wronged you

Walk on Water
The Wisdom of Jesus
The following sayings of Jesus, peace be upon him, from traditional Arabic sources are excerpted from Walk on Water, a forthcoming book by Hamza Yusuf:

According to Ahmad, Jesus, peace be upon him, was known to have said, “Virtuous action does not consist in doing good to someone who has done good to you—that is merely returning a favor. Virtuous action consists in doing good to those who have wronged you.”
(Ahmad)

Another gem from our Shaykh (May Allah reward him, and may we all benefit from him) can’t wait for the book.

We should all be aware and reflect on this concept of being good to all even those who wronged us. This was shown by the best of example by our beloved prophet (sall Allahu alaihi wa sallam)
