Writing in the third century, the Arab poet Mutanabbi describes how a recipient of another’s largesse will usually respond with either indebtedness or resentment :
‘ A generous soul is bought when it receives, a vile one returns good done with disease.’
Your response to another’s good toward you determines your nature.
If good in nature, you will respond with indebtedness and respect; if vile, with resentment and envy.
Many of us in the West feel anger and resentment toward Islam and Muslims.
