Forgiving others

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Seekersguidance.org

Assalam alaykum wa rahmatullah

Dear questioner,

May Allah bless you and increase you in good.
Forgiveness
Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Messenger ( peace and blessings be upon him) said, “Whoever has oppressed another person concerning his reputation or anything else, he should beg him to forgive him before the Day of Resurrection when there will be no money (to compensate for wrong deeds), but if he has good deeds, those good deeds will be taken from him according to his oppression which he has done, and if he has no good deeds, the sins of the oppressed person will be loaded on him.”
The Prophet ( peace be upon him) also said, He who does not show mercy to others, will not be shown mercy.” [Bukhari]
Hence we see that if you forgive, you will be forgiven. This is the way of the believers. Just forgive for the sake of Allah, and you will receive mercy yourself. How many people have we wronged that we may not even be aware of ourselves? You do not have to forgive, but if they ask you for forgiveness, you should forgive them.
