Abon Hannifah’s Prayer

Abon Hannifah, chief of a Turkish sect, once received a blow in the face from a ruffian, and rebuked him in these terms, not unworthy of Christian imitation:

“If I were vindictive, I should return you outrage for outrage; if I were an informer, I should accuse you before the caliph. But I prefer putting up a prayer to God, that in the day of judgment he will cause me to enter paradise with you.”
