Mercy & Forgiveness

‘Forgive him who wrongs you; join him who cuts you off; do good to him who does evil to you, and speak the truth although it be against yourself.’
‘Faith is a restraint against all violence, let no Mu’min commit violence.’
In light of the recent attacks in the UK and the president of the USA’s violent and aggressive rhetoric, I wanted to highlight some ahadith (verified sayings of the Prophet Muhammad) that speak about mercy and forgiveness. May we all do our best to perfect patience and loving-kindness May we aid our brothers and sisters in suffering and work to promote peace.
