27 Safar, 1443AH
Divine Wisdom: The passage, “forgive and forego. Do you not like that Allah forgives you?”Surah Al-Anfaal – QN8:61, reminds those who have either had others abuse, cheat on, lie about and otherwise mistreat them or have failed at various projects and are now seeking for how to get beyond past mistakes and make a success of their lives that, whatever our particular hurt, the solution lies not in feeding or denying them, but in learning to forgive and letting them go.
In other words, if we who easily hold things against others can learn to forgive them, then we cannot expect God to do any less for us.
So let the knowledge that:
1) The greater the offence, the harder it is to forgive, but forgive, we must;
2) Choosing not to forgive somebody is like eating poison and expecting the other person to die; and
3) Whatever we refuse to forgive and let go of, we will end up carrying with us forever, like an albatross around our necks;
Teach you, this bright new day, in order to keep moving forward in life, to learn to let go of everything and be at peace with your past!
Pray with me: O Allah! I seek forgiveness and pray You accept my repentance. Grant me ease in all my affairs and make my present better than my past and I seek Your love and guidance for greater victories and achievements as You satisfy the desires of my heart now and in the future, O The Repeatedly forgiving Lord!
Good morning and have a prosperous week!
