May Allah (SWT) grant us and all the Marhoomeen Forgiveness and Jannatul Firdaus (Aameen)



By Sh Aaidh Al-Qarni

"Whosoever seeks forgiveness (from Allah) often, then Allah makes for him a good ending for every matter of concern and provides for him a way out of every tight situation."

Related in Bukhari is a Hadith that is known as the chief of Al-Istighfaar (i.e., of supplications with which one asks Allah for forgiveness):

'O' Allah, You are my Lord and none has the right to be worshipped except You. You have created me, and I am your servant and I am upon your covenant and promise as much as I am able to be. I seek refuge in You from the evil that I have perpetrated. I confess to You Your favour upon me, and I confess to You my sin, so forgive me; for verily, none forgives sins except You."

Do not grieve over the hurt that is inflicted upon you by others and forgive those that have ill-treated you. The price of jealousy and rancor is enormous; it is the price that the revengeful person pays in exchange for his malice towards others. He pays with his heart, flesh, and blood. His peace, his relaxation, and his happiness - these he forsakes because he desires the sweetness of revenge and because he resents others.

Jealousy and rancor are illnesses for which Allah has given the cure and remedy:

~ [Those] who repress anger, and who pardon men... ~ (Qur'an 3: 134)
~ Show forgiveness enjoin what is good, and turn away from the foolish [i. e. don't punish them]. ~ (Qur'an 7: 199)

ونص العلماء على استحبابها فى مواضع منها بين يدي سائر الأمور المهمة (در المحتار ج١ص٥١٨)

Two delicate flowers of Southern womanhood were conversing on the porch swing of a large white-pillared mansion.

The first woman said, "When my first child was born, my husband built this beautiful mansion for me."

The second woman commented, "Well, isn't that nice."

The first woman continued "When my second child was born, my husband bought me that fine Cadillac automobile you see parked in the drive."

Again, the second woman commented, "Well, isn't that nice."

The first woman boasted "Then, when my third child was born, my husband bought me this exquisite diamond bracelet."

Yet again, the second woman commented "Well, isn't that nice."

The first woman then asked her companion, "What did your husband buy for you when you had your first child?"

The second woman replied, "My husband sent me to charm school."

"Charm school!" the first woman cried "what on Earth for?"

The second woman responded, "So that instead of saying 'who cares?’ I learned to say 'Well, isn't that nice.'"
