Do You Hate Someone

'Be quick in the Forgiveness from your Lord,  and pardon (all) men-for Allah loves those who do good.' [Source 'Quran'~Sura...

'Be quick in the Forgiveness from your Lord,
 and pardon (all) men-for
Allah loves those who do good.'

[Source 'Quran'~Surah Al-e-Imran; (3):A's # 133-134~]

Al-Fudhail bin [Allah have mercy on him] said:-

"Associate with those who have good behavior, for they will only call you to goodness, and accompanying them
provides comfort...!
As for ill-mannered persons...
they only call to evil {!}
do not associate with them...
so that you save yourself from their ill conduct.
I prefer associating with a sinner who has good mannerism, to associating with a worshipper whose mannerism with people is unbecoming.

Verily, the former type ~ the sinner who had good conduct in public uses
caution with people,
who like him because he is easy going,
while the latter, who has bad mannerism,
is despised and disliked to people."

If you hate a person...
you hate something in them that is part of yourself !

What isn't apart of ourselves doesn't
disturb us.

Do you hate someone? Do you really hate someone haven't spoken
to [ him or her ] for a while?
You've been blaming [him or her? ]
You're not the only one...!
the Muslim Ummah today is diseased with this to the extent that almost every Muslim knows another Muslim who [ he or she ] hates {!!!}
{"Subhan Allah"}

The Ummah is like a building with the Muslims
as it's bricks,
Brotherhood & Sisterhood the cement.
It doesn't work without forgiveness
Alright then [ he or she ]
wronged you.
deceived you.
backbit you.
lied to you...!

But !!!
even in these extreme situations the 'Qur'an' and the 'Hadith' teach us that
we have to forgive others !
[especially those who hurt us the most]
if we wish to
earn Allah's forgiveness on the day of Judgment.
~We have all committed many sins~
made many mistakes~
& [undoubtedly] wronged others~
we have deceived others~
we have done 'Gheeba' about others
& perhaps lied to others !
So what makes us focus onto another's errors...?
 while we remain unconscious of our own...?

Not to forgive is to live in arrogance~
and ignorance of our own shortcomings~

Forgiveness is linked with piety and
God-consciousness {!}

Do we not know that Allah forgives those who
forgive others?  we know that Allah Himself is
[ the Most Compassionate ]
[the Most Merciful]
and that His Mercy is infinite~
and that no
matter the Sin (except Shirk)
Allah is always willing to answer the person's call for forgiveness.... {!}
In fact Allah loves the tear drop that falls from the eye of one who sincerely
seeks the forgiveness of his Lord.

And Allah loves us to have hearts that are ready to forgive.

The Prophet (Sallallahu 'alayhi wa sallam)
once asked his companions:-

'Do you know what will cause you to have high walled Palaces in Paradise
(as a symbol of great reward) and will cause you to be raised by Allah?'

When they replied in the negative, he said...

'To be forgiving and to control yourself in the face of provocation,
to give justice to the person who was unfair
and unjust to you,
to give to someone even
though he did not give to you when you were in need.
and to keep connection with someone who
 may not have reciprocated your concern.'

Similarly the Prophet
(Sallallahu 'alayhi wa sallam) said that:-

'the best of people are those who are slow to get angry and quick to forgive.

On the other hand the worst of people are those, he said who get angry
quickly but are slow to forgive'.

The characteristic that makes a person most likely to forgive is the
purity of his or her heart.
Apologies must be accepted.

If we look at the example and the character of the Prophet (Sallallahu'alayhi wa sallam)
we can see that he was always forgiving and never showed enmity to anyone except those who waged
war against him.
There was an old lady who used to throw rubbish in his way every day, on
one occasion she did not throw rubbish in the street,
so he decided to go
and see what was the matter.
she was ill in bed, to her amazement,
the Messenger of Allah
(Sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam)
came to see her and find out about her.
She then accepted Islam {!!!}
This is the example of the man whom we claim to follow.

Some might say that to forgive is a sign of weakness and humiliation,
and for them it is better to be strong and preserve their honor.
But honor in the eyes of Allah lies in forgiveness.

'But indeed if any shows patience and forgives that would truly be an exercise of courageous will and resolution in the conduct of affairs.'

[Source : -'Quran'~Surat Ash-Shūraá (The Consultation) -42 ~ A #43]

If we are to be really strong then we have to be strong against 'Shaytaan'
and forgive our Brothers & Sisters, and in this way maybe Allah will decide,
to forgive ourselves for our many mistakes...!
honor in the eyes of Allah lies in Forgiveness !
