True Forgiveness


We have all been in situations where someone,

usually someone we hold near and dear, has committed a wrong against us. As much as we want to move forward, we are often held back due to our inability to let go of the wrong, the injury and the injustice. Umm Thameenah bint Luqman searches deep to discover the essence of forgiveness.

I always thought of myself as thetype of sister that found it difficult to hold a grudge. I have had my share of falling-outs. disputes, even confrontation in the past. With some, I made my feelings apparent with others I either shrugged it off or hid my feelings and made excuses for them. In general though, I have found it easier to overlook things and simply utter “I fogive you” than to face an uncomfortable apology from someone.

However, a year ago, I found myself questioning my claim of being able to forgive easily, I faced a situation that was emotionally painful, not only because of the hurt and sadness it caused but also because those involved were people whom I considered dear to me I realised that I had a choice: I could either hold on to the situation and continue to experience the resentment and sorrow, or I could forgive and let go. I chose to let go.

But, as days turned into weeks and weeks into months, I found myself recalling the incident over and over again in my mind “I haven’t been able to forgive them, have I?” I question my self “Subhan Allah, I still hold a grudge against them.”  found myself questioning my relationship with them, and I found that the solid foundation of trust that we had built over years  has been shattered with one thoughtless action. As much as I tried to forgive and to forget, remembering the incident brought intense sadness and tears that continued to hinder my progress.

Hostage to the past


Most of us have been in a similar position. We  recognise the pattern of behaviour in ourselves that we would lke to change, but we often feel powerless to do so. Everything  we try sems to lead nowhere. However, if we probe deeper  into the source of this behaviour, we can often link it to some past event or experience in our lives. In some cases, it is the result of a single traumatic of emotional, mental or physical abuse that has occured over n extended period of time.

As difficult as the situation is, overcoming it with sincere forgiveness is trully a blessing from ALLAH [SWT]. If we are unable to release the baggage we carry as a result of past experiences. we remain stuck, continuing to allow these experiences to shape our future in ways that are not always healthy, often creating unforeseen pain and suffering for us and those around us.


Finding the ability to forgive


To forgive someone does not mean that whatever harm or hurt the caused becomes insignificant. It is a process that begins in the heart and filters through our souls, ultimately creating an immeasurable release of burden for the one wronged and wrongdoer.

Forgiving by accepting responsibility. Yes, other may have done things that have hurt or harmed us, and they are responsible for those actions. But such individuals are not responsible for how we live the rest of our lives; we are responsible for that. How we respond to these past events and what we carry into our present and our future is entirely up to us and no one else. If we allow the past to negatively affect how we live the rest of our lives through the choices we make, our friendship, our relatonships and our behaviour with others, then that remains our choice and responsibility, not that of the one who committed wrong. Once we understand this, only then will we grant ourselves the opportunity to implement the beautiful process of forgiveness, by freeing ourselves from the burden of pain, anger and resentment, inshaALLAH.


Forgiving by releasing.

Forgiveness is about releasing ourselves from those self-imposed limitations and self-defeating behaviour patterns that tie us to the past  in negative ways.  Forgiveness is releasing our anger, fear, pain, and resentment and opening our heart to joy, peace and love.  It means that I will no longer allow the past to have a hold on to my life today; that  I am willing to release the hurt and pain; that I no longer wish to be tied to the experience or the person connected to the experience in a negative way; that I simply wish to be free.


Forgiving by moving on.

Does forgieness equal welcoming the person back into your life? Sometimes, to do so would be to take the high road, and that would be asource of khayr. However, there are times when it is neither wise nor prudent to do so. In the Qur’an Allah [swt] informs us of the permissibility of seeking recompense from one that has wronged us. However, we are also told that to forgive is better than to seek revenge.True forgiveness does not always necessitate the complete forgetting of a situation, despite the common misconception that we should “Forgive and Forget”  as though the incident never took place. However, you do not want to go around carrying the heavy burden of being bitter and resentful for the rest of your life either. Once you learn that if you touch a hot stove you can get burnt, you are not likely to do it again. You learn somthing from the experience: to exercise more caution while working around a hot stove, thus you do not blame the stove for being hot. It is what it is. And neither do you go around, for years, holding onto a grudge against the stove because you got burnt. This is the same for individuals that have wronged us. We are able to benefit from the situation by learning from the experience and moving on, as opposed to allowing the situation to control our lives.


Returning to ALLAH {SWT}


A dear sister once told me, “We are a nation of believer, hoping to attain the forgiveness of our Lord. Most High, whilst failing to attain the forgiveness of our fellow beings.”

For me, learning to forgive meant taking ownership of my own situation. Though I sometimes struggle to do so. I make a habit of beseeching my Lord to forgive all who have wronged me.. and to forgive me, for having ever harboured the inability to let go of what I claimed to have forgiven. As I recline each night, I attemp to cleanse my heart of every kind of ill-feeling, upset and hurt that I have been harbouring, I attemp to empty it completely, to forgive and make excuses, whilst turning to my Beloved, Most High, in need of HIS Forgiveness.

“Oh Allah! Forgive us, and our brethren who have preceded us in Faith, and put not in our hearts any hatred against  those who have believed. Oh Allah! YOU are indeed Full of Kindness, Most Merciful.” (Al-Hashr:10)

For those that have ever wronged me intentionally, unintentionally, with or without my knowledge, accept from me the best of all gifts-my forgiveness wrapped in a heartfelt du’a . With this, insha Allah, we shall walk hand-in-hand through the blessed gates of Paradise. With this inshaAllah, we shall not be held back to reconcile our worldly disputes. And With this, inshaAllah, I have freed my soul and yours, by letting go of any past wrong ever commited.

And for those that I have wronged, I pray, as taught by the Prophet (S.A.W.); “Oh ALLAH, whomever of the believers I have abused, give him the reward of a sacrificial slaughter for it on the Day of Resurrection.” [Al-Bhukari].

Highly Successful Muslim Youth 7 Habits To Acquire

You will never be successful,” the constant refrain goes, “unless you drop your bad habits and develop some good habits.” In the end, it’s all up to you. You have to decide what your habits are going to be. Have you given this matter some thought?

If you are alive and breathing, you should constantly be engaged in an inner struggle to develop habits which draw you closer to Allah. Success in this world is directly related to the strength of your relationship with Allah. The farther one is from Allah and the teachings of the Prophet (SAW), the less likely one is to achieve success in this world and, for sure, even less likely to achieve success in the hereafter.

Here are at least seven habits indispensable for highly successful Muslim youth, derived entirely from the Quraan and the teachings of the Prophet (SAW).

1) Be Truthful.

Being truthful is not always easy, especially when we make a mistake. We worry over whether or not to disclose exactly what happened. We are often afraid that if we tell the truth about what we have done or said, we will be in trouble with our parents or friends. What we forget is that whether we tell the truth or not, Allah knows exactly what took place, even those things that were never manifest or visible to people around us. Despite how burdensome telling the truth might seem, all of us are aware of the feeling of relief we experience when we tell the truth, even if the consequence of telling the truth is punishment. Casting the telling of truth and the fate of the truthful in terms of profit and loss, Allah tells us in the Quraan:

This is a day on which the truthful will profit from their truth: theirs are gardens, with rivers flowing beneath — their eternal Home: Allah well-pleased with them, and they with Allah. That is the great salvation, (the fulfillment of all desires).”(Surah Maa’idah 5:119)

So much is to be gained from being truthful as opposed to escaping punishment or blame because of not being truthful. Being truthful is not an option for Muslims, but rather an obligation, because our goal in being truthful is Paradise.

The beloved of Allah, Prophet (SAW), said: “Truthfulness leads to righteousness, and righteousness leads to Paradise. And a man keeps on telling the truth until he becomes a truthful person. Falsehood leads to al-fujur (i.e. wickedness, evil-doing), and al-fujur leads to the (Hell) Fire, and a man may keep on telling lies till he is written before Allah, a liar.” (Sahih Bukhari)

Ultimate success is therefore achieved by living one’s entire life, the youthful years, the adult years, and the elderly years, being truthful.

2) Be Trustworthy.

Allah is indeed the Most Trustworthy. But among humans, who do you rely on? Who can you trust to come through for you all the time? Are you considered trustworthy? Moving ahead in life, achieving ultimate success requires that people consider you trustworthy and reliable. Being trustworthy should not be an arbitrary activity but rather a habit so that you can be relied upon in all instances, big or small, convenient or inconvenient, easy or difficult.

When we say Allah is the Most Trustworthy, we are coming to terms with the fact that Allah Most High will never let us down, will never leave our side. He, Most High, says about someone who willingly accepts Islam,

Allah says: “Let there be no compulsion in religion: Truth stands out clear from error: whoever rejects evil and believes in Allah hath grasped the most trustworthy hand-hold, that never breaks. And Allah Heareth and Knoweth all things.” (Surah Baqarah 2:256)

Practice daily developing the habit of being trustworthy. Accept responsibility and then fulfill it. When others trust you, do not betray their trust.

You can read in the beautiful biography of our Prophet (SAW) how people used to entrust him with their valuables, knowing that upon their return they would find their valuables safe and unharmed. His personal and business practices were commendable to the degree that he was known for it in his community, even before he became aware that he was the Prophet of Allah, literally one who is most truthful and trustworthy.

3) Have Self-Restraint and Be Allah-Conscious.

Perhaps the most difficult challenge while navigating adolescence is to restrain oneself from falling victim to one’s desires.

Our success in life depends to a great extent on how well we are able to restrain ourselves and to be moderate in what is permissible, as well as how capable we are of distancing ourselves from what is impermissible.

Why is self-restraint so critical? Shaytaan’s goal is to make you a slave of your desires to the extent that you find yourself longing for sleep more than prayer. Developing self-restraint as a habit entails making self-restraint your second nature, something which is done almost without thought and without too much effort.

We are reminded by Allah: “And no one will be granted such goodness except those who exercise patience and self-restraint, none but persons of the greatest good fortune.” (Surah Fussilat 41:5)

In seeking to be highly successful Muslim youth, that is, youth deserving of the greatest fortune, it is imperative that you develop self-restraint.

Taqwa is most commonly translated as “Allah -consciousness,” one realizes without much effort that the height of self-restraint is full and complete understanding that one is indeed conscious of one’s duty to one’s Lord. How awesome will it be if you can look back at your life and say to yourself, all praise is due to Allah that I did not my desires and instead exercised self-restraint consistently!

4) Be Thorough.

The most perfect is Allah Most High, Who perfected creation, who perfected our religion, and Who guided His Prophet (SAW) to be the most perfect among humans in behavior and in character.

We read in the Muwatta of Imam Malik “Yahya related to me from Malik that he had heard that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, ‘I was sent to perfect good character’” (Book 47, Hadith 47.1.8).

To be thorough stems from a desire to be perfect to the extent that this as humanly possible. Seeking perfection in our actions and speech from an early age helps us to develop a keen eye, not only for thoroughness in our own life, but also for thoroughness in the lives of those around us. Being thorough in prayer, for example, teaches us to be patient and to concentrate upon the words we are reciting and the different positions of the prayer.

5) Be Focused.

One thousand ideas go through your head the moment you stand up for prayer. Is that you?

Developing the habit of being focused ensures that you are awake, alert, and totally motivated to work on and complete the task at hand, whatever it may be. Being distracted early on in childhood by video games, fast-paced imagery, and constantly changing scenes on television shows contributes to an inability to concentrate, to focus. Among the best ways to develop focus is to practice praying with deep concentration to the extent that you are almost unaware of your surroundings. Allah says in the Quraan that the believers are:

Those who humble themselves in their prayers.” (Surah Mu’minoon 23:2)

The humility referred to here results from total focus and concentration on the fact that one is in the presence of Allah, standing before Him, Most High. Do your best to develop focus; no matter what activity you are engaged in — whether in prayer or in academics

6) Be Punctual.

The last thing we should attribute to Islam is the notion that its teachings somehow make us late, slow, slugging, and anything but punctual. What a sad state of affairs, indeed, that we attribute our own weaknesses to our religion or ethnicity!

Highly successful individuals, be they Muslim or not, understand and appreciate the value of not only their time but the time of everyone else with whom they interact. Keeping people waiting for hours on end is neither something to be proud of nor a habit that has a place in the mindset of a person who tries to be successful.

One of the central pillars of Islam is prayer, and Allah and the Prophet (SAW) have given us clear reminders that we are to establish prayers at their due times.

When `Abdullah (RA) asked: “Which deed is the dearest to Allah?” the Prophet (SAW) replied: “To offer the prayers at their early stated fixed times.”(Sahih Bukhari).

If indeed your day is to be considered successful, you must have prayed all the obligatory prayers at their established times. Being punctual is a habit which, when perfected, demonstrates to others the tremendous value that Islam places on time — not only ours but that of everyone else with whom we interact.

7) Being Consistent.

Apart from all the habits listed above, perhaps the one that is sure to help you become a highly successful Muslim youth is that of being consistent. One cannot be truthful one day and a liar the next; one cannot be trustworthy in one instance and totally unreliable in the next; and so on for each of the other habits. A Muslim understands from an early age that it is easier to do something once or whenever we feel like it but much harder to do something regularly and consistently.

Ayesha (RA) narrates that: “The most beloved action to Allah’s Messenger (SAW) was that which is done continuously and regularly.”(Sahih Bukhari).

Regular and consist actions show that a person has thought about it, has intended to do it, has planned to do it, and therefore does it.
