With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Surah 24 (The Light)
Keep to your plighted word
Verse 23: “Let not those among you who are endued with grace and amplitude of means resolve by oath against helping their kinsmen, those in want, and those who have left their homes in Allah’s cause: let them forgive and overlook, do you not wish that Allah should forgive you? For Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful”
At times we may be caused some harm by people which angers us. We may express our anger by withholding something that is due to the person (be it monetary or otherwise) who caused us the harm. The Quran counsels the Believers to perform on their obligations despite the harm that the other party may have inflicted upon us. In doing so Allah SWT truly builds our character, which in the long term will bring the perpetrator to a realisation and appreciation for Quranic values.
Cross reference 41:34 “ Nor can Goodness and Evil be equal. Repel (Evil) with what is better: then will he between whom and you was hatred become as it were your friend and intimate”
Continues tomorrow InshaAllah…
