forgive, even when angry

Whatever ye are given (here) is a convenience of this Life; but that which is with Allah is better and more lasting; (it is) for those who believe and put their trust in their Lord. Those, who avoid the greater crimes and shameful deeds and when they are angry, even then forgive. Those who hearken to their Lord and establish regular prayer; who conduct their affairs by mutual Consultation; who spend out of what We bestow on them for Sustenance. And those who, when an oppressive wrong is inflicted on them, help and defend themselves.
~ Al Quran, Syura 42:36-39

..and it is perfectly ok, to defend oneself.
