Don’t Let the Hatred of a People Cause You To Do Wrong

«And do not let [it] cause you to do wrong» i.e., do not let hate of a people cause you to not be just, just as someone who has no justice or equity does. Rather, just as you testify for your ally, then testify against him, and just as you testify against your enemy, then testify for him, even if he were a disbeliever or heretic. For surely, justice and acceptance of what he comes with of the truth is obligated in it, because it is truth, not because he [is the one who] said it. Do not reject the truth on account of his statement, for surely, this is an oppression for the truth.
