The Mercy of Allah

Narrated Abu Huraira (R.A)


I heard Allah's Apostle (Muhammad peace be upon him) saying, "Verily Allah created Mercy. The day He created it, He made it into one hundred parts. He withheld with Him ninety-nine parts, and sent its one part to all His creatures. Had the non-believer known of all the Mercy which is in the Hands of Allah, he would not lose hope of entering Paradise, and had the believer known of all the punishment which is present with Allah, he would not consider himself safe from the Hell-Fire."


Abu Said Al Khudri (R.A)
The Prophet (peace be upon him) said,

"Amongst the men of Bani Israel there was a man who had murdered ninety-nine persons. Then he set out asking (whether his repentance could be accepted or not). He came upon a monk and asked him if his repentance could be accepted. The monk replied in the negative and so the man killed him. He kept on asking till a man advised to go to such and such village. (So he left for it) but death overtook him on the way. While dying, he turned his chest towards that village (where he had hoped his repentance would be
accepted), and so the angels of mercy and the angels of punishment quarrelled amongst
themselves regarding him. Allah ordered the village (towards which he was going) to come closer to him, and ordered the village (whence he had come), to go far away, and then He
ordered the angels to measure the distances between his body and the two villages. So he
was found to be one span closer to the village (he was going to). So he was forgiven."

Abu Huraira narrated that
Allah's Apostle (Muhammad peace be upon him) said,

"A prostitute was forgiven by Allah, because, passing by a panting dog near a well and seeing that the dog was about to die of thirst, she took off her shoe, and
tying it with her head-cover she drew out some water for it. So, Allah forgave her because of that."

Ref: Bukhari
Guidelines
"Good deeds are not equal to the evil ones. Repel other's evil deeds with your good deeds. You will see that he with whom you had enmity, will become your close friend.
But none will attain this quality except those who patiently endure and none will attain this quality except those who are truly fortunate."

It's wonderful to know that Allah is a merciful, forgiving God. Because of my own experiences, I was happy to read this part of the story,

"A prostitute was forgiven by Allah, because, passing by a panting dog near a well and seeing that the dog was about to die of thirst, she took off her shoe, and tying it with her head-cover she drew out some water for it. So, Allah forgave her because of that."

Wonderful!
