Narrated Abu Huraira:
The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “When Allah created the Creation, He wrote in His Book–and He wrote (that) about Himself, and it is placed with Him on the Throne–‘Verily My Mercy overcomes My Anger.'”
When you see a mother showing affection to her child that is from His mercy.
When you see an animal showing kindness to one another, that is from His mercy.
When you see people loving each other and showing kindness to each other, that is from the mercy of Allah.
When you have sinned, and yet He enables you to walk and talk and live another day, that is from His mercy.
When you have sinned and yet, He gives you what you ask for, He is doing out of His mercy.
When you have sinned and you realise that you have erred, the realisation is a mercy from Allah, and when you repent, the ability to repent is from His infinite mercy.
Salman reported that Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said:
With His mercy, He forgives.
It does not end there, He will also love you.
Say, “O My servants who have transgressed against themselves [by sinning], do not despair of the mercy of Allah . Indeed, Allah forgives all sins. Indeed, it is He who is the Forgiving, the Merciful.” (Surah Az-Zumar: 53)
In this month of mercy and forgiveness, ask Him to have mercy on us and forgive us for our shortcomings, and to enter us and our loved ones to Jannah and save us from the torment of the hell-fire.
