You need to forgive in order to attain forgiveness. And people mix forgiveness at times by thinking that by forgiving I need to go back to how I was before this person wronged me. And that's not a condition of forgiveness. I forgave them. I don't hold a grudge against them, but I don't want to have much to do with them because I've been bitten quite badly, and I haven't forgotten it. So in Islam, we were encouraged to forgive. Never does it say forget about it. We can't forget we're human beings we have been hurt. The gash is like an open wound that we are going to see for the rest of our lives sometimes. So I may not hold a grudge and I may have forgiven completely but I don't want

to have anything to do with such people. Nothing wrong with that statement. May Allah bless you. And perhaps if you were to see them a cinematic Kamala Khan Sam is a duty.

00:00:54--> 00:01:33

That's it more than that is not your duty if you're if you feel safe and secure and you feel like okay, we want to try and make things work again. You might try but the Hadith says lol devil McMenamin johannine wa hidden merata in a true believers never bitten from the same hole twice. Remember that? So if you feel that perhaps things haven't changed, although I forgiven this person, or these people, and I don't hold a grudge against them, but I don't want to mix with them because I don't think anything has changed in reality. You're justified in that type of thinking, why Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us forgiveness and help us to forgive others.
