Hadith Explanation

The Prize for Self Control

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “One who desires that lofty mansions be constructed for him in Jannah and that he be granted high levels in Jannah should forgive those who deal unjustly with him, he should give to those who deprive him and he should establish ties with those who sever them.” [Rooh ul Ma’aani]

We are wounded by words, attitudes and behaviour all the time. But aren’t the high, beautiful, strongly built mansions of Jannah worth suppressing our negative feelings for?

But how many times do we retort and how many times do we swallow our anger, forgive the person who deals unjustly with us, give to him who exclude us, and keep taking steps to enhance relationships with those who cut off from us?

Sometimes we don’t even forgive the people nearest and dearest to us such as our children, our spouses, our parents, our aunts and uncles. With every sunset ask yourself who did you forgive today and who were you exceptionally nice to despite their angering you?
