Many people ask about Allah’s forgiveness.
Will He punish? Or will He forgive?
Allah is The Most Merciful. One of His names is Al-Wadud, meaning The Most Loving. He loves us no matter what. But He hates our wrongdoings.
He created us for His Mercy and He loves us when we turn back to Him. He loves us when we do good deeds to please Him, and when we love Him back.
If Allah loves a person, He calls [angel] Gabriel saying: ‘Allah loves so and so; O Gabriel, love him.’ Gabriel would love him, and then Gabriel would make an announcement among the residents of the Heaven, ‘Allah loves so-and-so, therefore, you should love him also.’ So, all the residents of the Heavens would love him and then he is granted the pleasure of the people of the earth. (Al Bukhari)
In this folder, we compiled some interesting resources about Allah’s love for us, about seeking forgiveness and about repentance.
He hope this will contribute to answering the many questions we get on this topic.
May Allah (SWT) forgive us all, and may He guide us all to His Straight Path.
