We sin openly and privately, major and minor, inwardly and outwardly. And it is unavoidable ALLAH Almighty daily. In fact, there are many duas of forgiveness that a Muslim can make every day. Despite all of this, ALLAH Almighty is willing to forgive us, He loves to forgive us. Justice is limited in how much we can achieve and it is quantifiable.
Verse 42:39-40 of Holy Quran,
And those who, when tyranny strikes them, they defend themselves, And the retribution for an evil act is an evil one like it, but whoever pardons and makes reconciliation – his reward is [due] from ALLAH. Indeed, He does not like wrongdoers.
And what we seek can not be compensated except through forgiveness. It will take away the hurt and the mark will be lifted. And so we select something which is temporary that result in apologize for, for something permanent that we will always be satisfied with even though its initial stages may experience bitter. And whilst ‘justice’ is measurable, the return is not and the reward is with ALLAH Almighty.
Verse 42:40 of Holy Quran,
And the retribution for an evil act is an evil one like it, but whoever pardons and makes reconciliation – his reward is [due] from ALLAH. Indeed, He does not like wrongdoers.
Forgiveness is not simple to do and that is why the rewards are so high. The ones we get most angry with are those whom we are nearby to and because we notice them day in and day out, it is harder to forgive them. In reality, the test of fine character is not to show it to people you like or do not know, but people you do not like. We may feel we can not belief anyone. It does not matter how deep one’s love is for their parents, spouse, children, friends and siblings there will always be several element of disappointment.
And although we must not think like this, in various situations, it can not be helped. It is easier to make happy ALLAH Almighty than to please the people. This is why we should always do things for ALLAH Almighty alone and everything else must be secondary. This way, if you are dissatisfied by the people, you did not do it for them anyway. And any damage they cause us will be value it because the return will be higher.
And yet when ALLAH Almighty forgives, it is about as though we had not done that sin and ALLAH Almighty bestows more mercy upon us so that we are not able to return to Him. We are all on a trip together; let us help each other to be virtuous, seeking forgiveness of each other (Huqoq-ul-ibaad) overlooking each other’s mistakes. Let us make easy the way of attaining Jannah for each other, not Jahanam.
