Forgiving is not easy and it takes years to learn to forgive someone, but the virtues rewarded from God are far more glorious. Today, grab a paper and list down the names of those who wronged you and try to offer them your forgiveness. It could be something as simple as verbal abuse, to matters that are more personal. Once you overcome this difficult task, you’d feel that a heavy weight has been lifted off your chest, because your forgiveness weighs a great deal to Allah the Almighty, who in return will offer you his forgiveness and cleanse you from sins, especially in this blessed month of Ramadan.
Verily, those who had faith and had done righteous deeds will have gardens beneath which rivers flow. That is the great achievement.
