On pardoning


O son, I am humbled that a friend has pardoned me for what I did wrong. All it takes to get two estranged souls back together is one word - sorry.

This is what Shaykh Abdul Qadir al-Jilani has to say on pardoning:
Make strenuous efforts to give to the person who deprives you, maintain a connection with the person who cuts you off and pardon the person who wrongs you.

Make every effort that your body is with the servants while your heart is with the Lord of the servants. Do all that you can to speak the truth and never tell lies. Make strenuous efforts to act with sincerity and avoid hypocrisy.

Luqman the Wise used to say: 'O my son, do not put on a show to impress people, for you will not meet with Allah, as long as your heart is infidel!'

Extending the hand of friendship to Dr.Z.
May hearts unite for His sake alone.
