Forgiveness has the power to heal all wounds. 
It's a breath of fresh air when you have been forgiven or you give forgiveness to someone who has hurt you. It has the ability to transform us in ways we couldn't have imagined. 
Healing ways, whether physical, mental, emotional or spiritual. 
It's a healing process that we each should adopt at some point in our lives. 
I know that it's often hard to forgive someone who hurt or wronged you. 
Let it go! 


Forgiveness is a true Mercy from God. 
Time and time again He reiterates that His mercy and forgiveness are over flowing. 
He sent a perfect example in His Prophet, in that he was a mercy to mankind. 
You can't get any cooler than that. 
We are at the tail end of the Islamic month of Rajab. 
Rajab for those who don't know, is that dope month where your repentance is accepted with open arms, it's the month to seek forgiveness. 
Not to say that you can't seek forgiveness any other time of the year, 
 Rajab is just cool like that. 




It's in the examples and stories I grew up hearing about our Prophet 
that helped shape me into the person I am today. 
I try hard to hold onto his teachings and the traditions he left behind.

 I'm not the type to hold a grudge, I don't intentionally hurt people, and I don't  judge others in the slightest. It takes a whole lot for me to get offended and even then, I probably wouldn't care. 
You see, 
I know what it's like for people to judge you, cause I've been judged before, it doesn't feel good. 
I know what it's like for people to hold a grudge against you, it's pretty lame. 
I know what it feels like when someone hurts you, it sucks. 
And I know how easily it is for people to get offended by the slightest thing. 
I also know how it feels to be shown mercy and forgiveness and it's those feelings that I keep close. When needed I'll pass that shiz out like there is no tomorrow! 
To be completely honest with you guys,
 in the end, 
I know myself and I know that I need more forgiveness than can ever be given to me by a human soul. Hopefully in my being good to others it will cause God to remember me in a good light and
 forgive me for my wrongs. 
I sat down to write this as a reminder to myself first and foremost, but if you find it of any benefit,
then I kindly ask that you remember me in your prayers.
