Dear Brother / Sister,
Acting positively means to act constructively in the periods when mischief is at the peak and disorder harms people, to maintain law and order all the time, to definitely avoid negative reactions and attitudes, and to desist from responding violence with violence.
The following verses of the Quran and hadiths can be examples regarding the issue:
“And dispute ye not with the People of the Book, except with means better (than mere disputation), unless it be with those of them who inflict wrong (and injury): but say, "We believe in the revelation which has come down to us and in that which came down to you; Our Allah and your Allah is one; and it is to Him we bow (in Islam).'” (al-Ankabut, 29/46).
“Revile not ye those whom they call upon besides Allah, lest they out of spite revile Allah in their ignorance!” (al-Anam, 6/108)
“Repel (Evil) with what is better.” (Fussilat, 41/34)
“Those who witness no falsehood, and, if they pass by futility, they pass by it with honorable (avoidance).” (al-Furan, 25/72)
“A believer is a person from whose tongue and hand the people are safe.” (Bukhari, Iman, 4)
"He who believes in Allah and the Day of Judgment should say good things or keep silent." (Tirmidhi, Qiyamah, 51)
“Do not let yourselves be hesitant by saying: 'I am like everybody. If the people are good, I will be good, and if they do wrong, I will do wrong.' On the contrary, be determined; if the people are good, you should do good deeds too and if they are evil, you should avoid committing evil.” (Tirmidhi, Birr 63)
