Would God want believer’s today to carry out the law of retribution? (an eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth / Kısas)

Bible: No       Qur'an: Yes

Matthew 5:39 – But I say unto you that ye resist not evil, but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.

Romans 12:19-20 – 19. Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord… 20. if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink… 21. Do not overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

Al-Baqarah 2:194 – If anyone attacks you, attack him with the like of that with which he attacked you.

Ash-Shuraa 42:40-41 – 40. The recompense of an illdeed is an ill-deed like thereof... 41. those who avenge themselves after they have been wronged, cannot be held blameworthy.
