Forgiving those who hurt you

Assalaamualaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

I hope you are well.

Just now, I was thinking about someone who had hurt me at work with the way that they spoke and the way that they were with me.

But Allah SWT inspired a beautiful thought in my mind: to forgive them and let Allah SWT deal with these affairs wholly.

The act of genuinely forgiving everyone who has ever hurt you in your life can be hard. Especially if they are deep wounds that still affect you today. However, even though I am finding it a little hard to fully and completely forgive everyone who has hurt me, what keeps me going in the right direction is remembering that Allah SWT is the All Knowing, Most Powerful and The Just so I know whatever anyone had ever done to me, they will be dealt with accordingly. This stops me from trying to make justice with my own hands.

You may think why I am looking at the name of Allah SWT “The Just” even though I said I forgive them. This is because I want justice as anyone would. Even though people may not say it, within them they will always want justice.

Forgiving and letting go will, insha’Allah, bring about a lot of relief and ease for you, helping you to fulfill your amazing potential, without having the past drag you down, leaving you depressed, unhappy and ungrateful.

I hope this helps you and if it does, please share it so that it may help someone else insha’Allah.

Assalaamualaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

  1. I always find it really hard to forgive those that have hurt me. Even though they will get their own comeuppance, forgiving them almost feels as though I’ve condoned what they did. I don’t really believe in that whole “forgive because you deserve peace” quote that floats around. Maybe it’s the pessimist in me.

    • I know what you mean. But what you should remember is that this life is going to end. It’s not going to be a big issue for you when you step into Jannah insha’Allah. Allah SWT also elevates the status of those who forgive, meaning you’re just helping yourself to go in the right way and leaving the people who hurt you behind. Don’t worry. I don’t believe in that as well! I just believe in the reward that you can get and the sweetness of imaan you can feel. No I think it’s just when you have been hurt a lot really. May Allah SWT make it easy for you.
