Tolerance and exoneration, with two different approaches, determine how believers deal with the opposition. Tolerance invites believers to mildness and peaceful behavior, but exoneration urges them to openly deny falsehoods and express disgust at the aberration leaders. The Qur’an verses and narratives also show a kind of elementary opposition to following each of these two teachings. These two views are likely to move the Shi’ites in two different directions as they confront the opposition. But a closer look at the concept of the two doctrines reveals that the different approach will not lead to actual and practical opposition. on the contrary, tolerance and exoneration, if they are understood and applied correctly, are matched as two harmonic elements in a harmonic system in fulfilling the purpose of the Holy Prophet in expressing the truth and guiding the weak.
