Problem with neighbours


Ive been practicing singing zikr/drumming for a week and suddenly getting loads of abuse over the garden fence from neighbours. They did it 2yrs ago when i must have been waking them at fajr (got my car scratched too, could have been them).
i heard that esoterically ‘kill’ means just hurting someone emotionally.
the Quranic verse: kill them wherever you find them for oppression is worse than slaying -does that mean i should stand up top them and try and rip them apart verbally?
plus one Naqshbandi friend says i should stand up to bullies. but i keep reading stories of saints who just ‘took’ it, seeing it from God and not reacting.
what shall i do please?

wa `alaykum salam

You are a fish out of water. Stop what you are doing. Apologise to your neighbour because you have hurt their comfort and feelings – which are the rights of your neighbour. If you want to drum and sing, do so elsewhere. Don’t misquote and misinterpret Qur’anic verses for your benefit – only terrorists do that. You have NO RIGHT to hurt anyone. Should you have any intent of it or end up doing it, we are not responsible for your actions.
