forgiveness in Islam

Forgiveness in the Quran and Sunnah

By Abu Amina Elias / 24 Jan 2014

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

Allah the Exalted said:

وَلْيَعْفُواوَلْيَصْفَحُواۗأَلَاتُحِبُّونَأَنيَغْفِرَاللَّهُلَكُمْۗوَاللَّهُغَفُورٌرَّحِيمٌ

Let them pardon and overlook. Would you not love for Allah to forgive you? Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.

 

The power of forgiveness

By Dr. Muzammil H. Siddiqi | 11 Dec 2012

God has granted intellect to human beings. The intellect entails responsibility. The more intellect a person has, the more he/she is responsible.

When the intellect is missing, the responsibility is also not there. Little children are not held responsible, because their intellect has not yet developed. The insane are not responsible, because they have lost the intellectual capacity. However, part of our being human is also that we make mistakes. Sometime we make mistakes without deliberation and intention. But sometime we knowingly and deliberately sin and do wrong to others.

 

What the Qur'an teaches: Forgiveness of offenders

Source: by Arab News/Nov.17/2011

The surah calls on believers to show magnanimity and forbearance to those who are weak because their hearts do not open to the great source of power. They are urged to show kindness to those who are blind to the great truths, and as a result, do not look forward to God’s great days when some aspects of His majesty are clearly shown: “Tell the believers that they should forgive those who do not look forward to the Days of God. It is for Him alone to requite people for whatever they may have earned.”
