Ramadan – a month of Mercy and Forgiveness

Ramadan – a month of Mercy and Forgiveness

LOOK at the mercy a mother has for her baby she feeds. Can we imagine her ever harming the child? Look at the the elephant, a creature that weighs more than a ton, has so much mercy for its offspring.

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, "Allah divided Mercy into one-hundred parts and He kept its ninety-nine parts with Him and sent down its one part on the earth, and because of that, its one single part, His creations are Merciful to each other, so that even the mare lifts up its hoofs away from its baby animal, lest it should trample on it." (Bukhari)

We should have maximum mercy on each other in this month. This is the month of forgiveness so let us forgive and take maximum benefit from what Allah has promised us.

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, "A Muslim is the one who avoids harming Muslims with his tongue and hands." (Bukhari)
