Transcript of Forgiveness

Sarah Khir Forgiveness What is Forgiveness
in Islam? In Islam, there are two kinds
of forgiveness. The first is God's
forgiveness, and the second is
Human forgiveness. Both of
them are needed because
sometimes we do wrong to
God as well as to each
other, even if we don't
mean to. God's Forgiveness How do we forgive? Of course, forgiving may sometimes be difficult
as it is hard to understand why people would
wrong us in the first place. But you have to battle
with your inner self to allow us to strengthen our
iman. The Prophet (saw) called this “The Greater
Jihad” because we fight the evil in
us to purify our hearts. This is
always done for the sake of Allah.
However, we must always remember
that we are only human, and so we always make
mistakes, and wish to be forgiven when we
make those mistakes. Here, is
where we find peace. Human Forgiveness As much as we need God's forgiveness,
we also need Human forgiveness too.
How can we expect God's forgiveness if
we can't forgive those who wrong us?
Being forgiving is one of the most
important teachings in Islam.
In Al-Quran, God has described
Believers as: {those who avoid
major sins and acts of indece-
ncies and when they're
angry they forgive.}
(42:37) Why is forgiveness
important? Prophet Muhammad was the most forgiving
person. An example of his forgiveness is when
he went to Ta'if and got pelted with stones. He
left the city humiliated and wounded. Yet, when
Allah sent an angel to destroy Ta’if for mistreating
the Prophet, the Prophet himself prayed to save
the people of Ta’if, saying: “O Allah, guide these people, because they did not know what they
were doing.”
Life is short. Let us not waste our energy
on being angry at our enemies and
seeking revenge against them.
The key to ending conflict is
with the power of
forgiveness. Allah (swa) is referred to as 'Al-Ghafoor'
in the Quran over seventy times, which
means 'The Most Forgiving'. We will
one day be judged by God but even though
he will punish, he will also forgive.
Therefore, it is important that we repent
for our sins and ask for forgiveness, for
we will always need God's forgiveness. God's mercy is unlimited and His love
is infinite.
