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.

What is Ramadan REALLY about?

Assalaamualaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

I hope you are well.

I just finished watching a truly, life-changing lecture from br. Nouman Ali Khan about Ramadan, in which he thoroughly explains the meaning of the ayat of Ramadan in the Qur’an.

Please watch! It was very beneficial to me and insha’Allah it will be for you too.

The video is below.

May Allah(SWT) forgive him, keep him steadfast, allow barakah and ease to be in his life and may he enter Jannah tul Firdaus without any reckoning! Insha’Allah ameen.

JazakAllahu khairan.
