Salaams,

I know the importance of forgiving one who has done bad towards you, in Islam. However, there is a person whos done so much wrong to me, that everytime i say to myself that im gonna forget all the wrong she has done, forgive her and recall the good things she has done, few days will pass and I would recall the bad she has done (towards me)  then my anger and hatred towards her will come back to me.

I just want to be able to forgive and forget... but im finding it very hard. Brothers and Sisters, do you have any suggestions, are there any duas which I may recite to free me from hatred.

Thank You.

Salam I think theres a difference between forgetting n forgiving. You can forgive someone but u don't have to forget ESP if that person did something to hurt you. So forgive bc there's so many Hadith n Quran abOut it. And Allah will forgive us if we do.

But the thing is that its not so easy to forgive but not forget. I have a similar situation to Anon1. Some people in the family did something bad to me couple years ago and although I have forgiven them many times(I know it sounds funny) and not forgotten, I remember it every now and then and the hatred returns and it ruins a happy day of mine.

I recently listened in a Halaqa that even if someone does something bad to us, that too is by the will of Allah (SWT) and happened for a reason, maybe to teach us something or maybe it was a test of how we would react. So what can be done is to make dua for those who did bad to you and it will end the hatred in the heart. Have firm faith in your heart that whatever good or bad happens is from Allah (SWT).

Masha Allah. Thank you for the Article.

I had tears in my eyes while reading this. Although forgiving is hard, this article has broaden my understanding and importance of Forgiving.
Now I know that I need not only forgive for myself... but also for the sake of Allah.
Inshallah Allah will see our struggle in forgiving and will make it easy for us to be able to do so. Ameen

Thank You
