Ayah

وَإِنۡ عَاقَبۡتُمۡ فَعَاقِبُواْ بِمِثۡلِ مَا عُوقِبۡتُم بِهِۦ ۖ وَلَئِن صَبَرۡتُمۡ لَهُوَ خَيۡرٌ لِّلصَّٰبِرِينَ

Translation

And if ye do catch them out, catch them out no worse than they catch you out: But if ye show patience, that is indeed the best (course) for those who are patient.<br/>

Tafsir

After Hamza [ibn 'Abd al-Muttalib] had been killed and mutilated, and the Prophet may peace and salutation be upon him had seen him and said, 'Verily I will mutilate 70 of them for you', the following was revealed: And if you retaliate, retaliate with the like of what you have been made to suffer; and yet if you endure patiently, [refraining] from revenge, verily that, namely, [that] enduring, is better for the patient. Thus the Prophet may peace and salutation be upon him refrained [from taking revenge] and made atonement for his oath, as reported by al-Bazzaar.
