About this episode

Shaykh Yasir Qadhi delves on the Name of Allah which is Al Afuww. This means that Allah overlooks and neglects a sin committed by us as if it never took place and overlooks it as if it never happened.

Al Afuww is mentioned 5 times in the Qur'an. Allah being Al Afuww necessitates our deepest gratitude and thanks to Allah.

The best example of exhibition of Afuww is seen in the story of the slander of Aisha RA. Abu Bakr RA, her father had a relative by the name of Mistah bin Uthatha who was being helped by Abu Bakr RA in terms of monetary relief. But he was the prime candidate involved in this demeaning act against his daughter. When Abu Bakr RA heard of this, he was dejected and resorted to cutting off all ties with him in every way.  

But Allah SWT revealed verses of Surah Nur relieving her from the accusation and in verse 22 of Surah Noor Allah revealed: ‘And let not those among you who are blessed with graces and wealth swear not to give (any sort of help) to their kinsmen, Al-Masakin (the poor), and those who left their homes for Allah’s Cause. Let them pardon and forgive. Do you not love that Allah should forgive you? And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.’
