Forgiveness from the Heart (Spiritual Posts)

Forgiveness from the heart may be hard; but it’s well worth it.

In our daily life, we may get hurt by a relative, a friend or a colleague. Somebody may say a bad word behind us or ill-treat us.

We may have the ability to respond and reciprocate. But let’s remember that there is a better option.

Forgiveness From the Heart Earns Us Special Reward

It is held as the better course of action whenever possible, the Quran reads:

{The reward of an evil deed is its equivalent. But whoever pardons and seeks reconciliation, then their reward is with Allah. He certainly does not like the wrongdoers.} (Ash-Shura 42:40)

So, what could be better than Allah‘s taking care of us and rewarding us?

These posts remind us that practicing forgiveness from the heart  is important  for genuine peace.
