Umar on Relations: Believer is good to those who are evil to him

‘Ikramah reported: Umar ibn Al-Khattab, may Allah be pleased with him, said, “The one who reconciles is not the one who maintains relations with those who are good to him, for that is merely reciprocation. Rather, the one who reconciles is one who maintains relations with those who cut him off.”
