Forgive & Forget

I read this on a page on facebook that I follow; thought I’d share it here..425749_10151415404352652_799557698_nWe have been taught “to forgive, but never forget”, right?

Most of us lie when we say that we have forgiven the people for their mistakes and wrongdoings but then we continue to remind them of their mistake sometimes. Maybe in anger or maybe just to tease or make them feel hurt.

Is this a forgiveness we want for ourselves as well?

When we raise our hands in humility towards heavens and we beg for forgiveness, what do we ask for? What kind of forgiveness do we ask for?

We want a clean chit from Allah that we have been forgiven COMPLETELY. We want another chance. We want our huge and endless list of crimes to be erased. We want Allah to accept our repentance and allow us to start again. We don’t want to be reminded of it, or have it come back to haunt or to taunt us. We want our sins to be forgiven here and veiled on the day of Judgement!!

Subhan’Allah, the mercy of our Lord, the Most Merciful is so much unique that Allah Subhanahu Wa Taa’la after forgiving a repenting believer never reminds him of his wrong deeds, neither in this world nor in the hereafter!

Hence, If we want to be forgiven completely, we must learn to forgive others completely.

May Allah help us not to bear any grudges towards anyone, to treat one another properly and to forgive another completely.

Aameen!

I’d rather be in love.. with you ♩ ♫ ♪ ♬

‘Cause when there’s you, I feel whole
And there’s no better feeling in the world
But without you I’m alone..
And I’d rather be in love with you!

🙂 love this song by Michelle Branch!

Too bad Youtube aint working in Pakistan or I’d have linked it for the audience of this post. Shall do that whenever Youtube’s accessible.

Each one of us has the right to make a choice..

Although at times one is required to make compromises, for that special someone, for family, a child, for friends, and just some random people you come across in life out of the goodness of the heart.. and at times, these very people, although I’m sure they don’t intend to, begin taking things for granted.. anyway. Coming back to choices.. I’ve always believed that it’s all.. and everything that happens to us is somehow linked with the choices we make in life.

Often, when choosing a path that may have extreme obstacles, we do so with the thought that our choice will lead to a decision that would not harm us much and at the same time its impact would gain another person more benefit. That’s that angel in us just being selfless :p , knowingly exposing a vulnerable part of ourselves in front of others to simply have fun with.. exploit it at a certain level..

What actually leaves me bamboozled with a deeper intensity is when at times we make a decision that is wholly and solely for our own good, need or simply fulfills our desire, people, some of them who are in fact our very own and close to heart will not take a second to think or hesitate before labeling us.. as a self obsessed brat, slash, the most typically selfish being alive on the planet!

Well, no offense intended to my dear(ies)! I love you! This isn’t to hurt u or make you feel bad if by any chance you read this. Just that today, I choose to be free of worries for no1 else but myself.

Today, I choose to be happy for no1 else but myself.
