Do you hate someone? Do you really hate someone you haven't spoken
to him/her for a while? You've been blaming him/her?

You're not the only one; the Muslim Ummah today is diseased with this to the
extent that almost every Muslim knows another Muslim who he hates.

The Ummah is like a building with the Muslims as it's bricks, brotherhood is
the cement. Without forgiveness you cannot have brotherhood.

OK then, he wronged you. He deceived you. He backbited you. He lied to you. But
even in these extreme situations the Qur'an and the Hadith teach us that we
have to forgive others (especially those who hurt us the most) if we wish to
earn the forgiveness of Allah on the day of judgment.

We have all committed many sins, made many mistakes and no doubt we have
wronged others, we have deceived others, we have backbited others and no doubt
we have lied to others.

So what makes us focus onto brothers' and sisters' errors while we remain
unconscious of our own. Not to forgive is like to live in arrogance, and
ignorance of our own shortcomings.

Forgiveness is linked with piety and God-consciousness, is there anybody who is
not without sin? Is there anybody who can be arrogant enough to say that he
does not need to forgive?

Do we not know that Allah forgives those who forgive others? Therefore, we
should realise the difficulties of others and forgive them. Allah says in the

'Be quick in the forgiveness from your Lord, and pardon (all) men - for Allah
loves those who do good.'

[Surah ali Imran; 3:133-134]

And we know that Allah Himself is Ar-Rahmaan (the Most Compassionate) and
Ar-Raheem (the Most Merciful) and that His Mercy is infinite, and that no
matter the sin (except shirk)

Allah is always willing to answer the person's call for forgiveness. In fact
Allah loves the tear drop that falls from the eye of one who sincerely seeks
the forgiveness of his Lord.

And Allah loves us to have hearts that are ready to forgive.

The Prophet (Sallallahu 'alayhi wa sallam) once asked his companions;

'Do you know what will cause you to have high walled palaces in Paradise (as a
symbol of great reward) and will cause you to be raised by Allah?'

When they replied in the negative, he said,

'To be forgiving and to control yourself in the face of provocation, to give
justice to the person who was unfair and unjust to you, to give to someone even
though he did not give to you when you were in need and to keep connection with
someone who may not have reciprocated your concern.'

Similarly the Prophet (Sallallahu 'alayhi wa sallam) said that:

'the best of people are those who are slow to get angry and quick to forgive.
On the other hand the worst of people are those, he said who get angry quickly
but are slow to forgive'.

The characteristic that makes a person most likely to forgive is the purity of
his or her heart. Apologies must be accepted,

The Prophet (Sallallahu 'alayhi wa sallam) said that:

'Whoever apologises to his brother and that apology is not accepted, then the
person who refuses to accept the apology bears the sin of one who takes the
property of another unjustly.'

And the Prophet (Sallallahu 'alayhi wa sallam) also said that:

'The doors of the Garden are open on Monday and Thursday. Every Muslim slave
who does not associate anything with Allah is forgiven except for the man who
has enmity between him and his brother.

It is said, 'Leave those two until they have made a reconciliation. Leave those
two until they have made a reconciliation' .

If we look at the example and the character of the Prophet (Sallallahu 'alayhi
wa sallam) we can see that he was always forgiving and never showed enmity to
anyone except those who waged war against him.

There was an old lady who used to throw rubbish in his way every day, on one
occasion she did not throw rubbish in the street, so he decided to go and see
what was the matter.

She was ill in bed, to her amazement, the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu
'alayhi wa sallam) came to see her and find out about her.

She accepted Islam .

This is the example of the man whom we claim to follow. Thumamah, as the chief
of his tribe had killed many Muslims. On his travels, he was caught by the
Muslim soldiers and was taken to the Prophet's masjid and tied to one of the

The Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu 'alayhi wa sallam) commanded his companions
to untie him and give him the best food. The Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu
'alayhi wa sallam) was indeed a mercy for the worlds.

We should similarly be merciful with each other. First of all, we ourselves
should not do anything to upset our brothers and sisters (because this is in
itself a part of mercy) and then we should forgive those who have upset us or
made us angry. We will never be a strong ummah if we are not able to forgive.

Some might say that to forgive is a sign of weakness and humiliation, and for
them it is better to be strong and preserve their honor. But honor in the eyes
of Allah lies in forgiveness.

'But indeed if any shows patience and forgives that would truly be an exercise
of courageous will and resolution in the conduct of affairs.'

[surah 42:43]

If we are to be really strong then we have to be strong against Shaytaan and
forgive our brothers and sisters, and in this way maybe Allah will decide,
insha Allah, to forgive ourselves for our many mistakes.

' ...honour in the eyes of Allah lies in forgiveness. ....

"The one who is (truly) imprisoned is the one whose heart is imprisoned from Allah, and the captivated one is the one whose desires have enslaved him." Ibn Taymiyah
