Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah he sallallahu sallam. Today I want to talk briefly inshallah to Allah about the difference between forgetting and forgiving so many people, they will come and they will, you know, exclaim that they can't forgive so and so, whenever they remember these memories, it brings sadness to the heart, so they don't want to forgive that particular person. The quote says, you may never be able to erase the memories of being hurt. But you can choose to forgive those who wronged you. Now, what's the difference between forgetting and forgiving, you will never be able to raise those memories of being

00:00:46--> 00:01:33

hurt. And you may be absolutely true in your judgment that this person has caused you really, to be hurt and to be saddened for a long, long period of time. No one is doubting you. No one say that you're lying about what you feel. However, forgiving is something else forgiving is that you don't expect anything from that person in the hereafter. You don't want to see him being punished because he has wronged you. You don't want to see him burnt in Hellfire because he had hurt you during this. That's the difference between forgetting the the wound. And forgiving the person who caused the wound you understand and forgiving, of course, is the greatest. One of the greatest manners that we

00:01:33--> 00:02:15

can display and demonstrate during our lifetime. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he mentioned the story of a man who entered the masjid. And he before he entered the masjid. The prophet SAW and told the companions that a man from the people have Jenna is going to enter now look at this, and the soul of a simple man that he was even not known to the people in the community of the live nom, he reached him out may Allah be pleased with him. And he told him he wanted to stay with him for three days. He accommodated him. And I'm like normal male lover please with me. You wanted to observe how the person is behaving when he's alone, lest he learned from him and attained

00:02:16--> 00:02:19

that honor of gender. Just like how the prophet SAW Selim

00:02:20--> 00:03:04

taught told them that this man from Paradise, but the man didn't do anything special. In fact, all the companions combined they used to do extra work than this simple man. And then apply nom. You told him teach me man, the prophet SAW Sam said that you are from Jenna, what are you doing? He said nothing special. Except here is the key for you my brothers and sisters to learn except that when I go to bed, I forgive everyone. Anyone who wants to harm me or wrongly I just like yeah, Allah forgive them. I don't need anything from them. Yes, I may be hurt. Maybe I feel bad, sad, a little bit and all these are in the scale of your good account, any hurt or any injustice that you will

00:03:04--> 00:03:17

suffer in this dunya allow it is part of your own sins. Remember, you also is a sinner. Remember that you have wronged some people? Remember they have some ugly history. And if you want a lot of forgive you

00:03:19--> 00:03:24
