WHEN a tyrant oppresses someone, his fate goes to the court of the oppressed person. When the oppressed person, raises his hand and starts praying and complaining to Allah swt, his cries rupture the sky. Allah swt who is the most Merciful and the Most Forgiving takes revenge on behalf of the oppressed person from His own qualities as the Avenger, and the creator of Harmful. Now, the tyrant has to wait for his final fate and see how much time he has.
But, if the oppressed take it upon themselves, instead of waiting for the decision of Allah, and tries to take the revenge by swearing, by complaining to people , or use any means to damage or harm the oppressor, most of the time this person is unable to harm his enemy. The oppressor will be saved and it will leave the abused person more vulnerable for hardship and misery.
However, there is an act that can ascend the oppressed to the seventh heaven and that is the act of forgiveness. If the oppressed instead of taking revenge forgives his enemy, he qualifies for the safeguard of angles. Allah swt directly provides His shadow upon him. He gets enormous amount of power; emotional, physical, and spiritual. Now no one will be able to harm him.

Interesting column. Sometimes the oppressed when attacked must use all kinds of means to defend himself. When he goes out in search for justice he will suffer on the way from people and more attacks. But he must never give up. Sometimes it seems that both the oppressor and oppressed are suffering but the oppressed has inner peace with Allah(SWT).
