God Is Compassionate and Forgiving
- :Harun Yahya
The Qur'an reveals that God is "the most compassionate of the compassionate" (Qur'an, 12:92). God's compassion is reflected on everything: The air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat, the scenery we like to behold, the animal for which we feel compassion, the friends and family members we trust and love, our clothes, and our homes are just some of His gifts. God's compassion, mercy, and protection can be felt throughout one's life. Therefore, we need to show our appreciation for His countless gifts by turning to Him and earning His good pleasure. God accepts genuine repentance and guides those who sincerely turn to Him to enlightenment, for He is Most Forgiving. He answers the prayers of those who turn to Him and rescues people from their troubles and sorrows. The Qur'an reveals these truths in the following verses:
God would never let your faith go to waste. God is All-Gentle, Most Merciful to humanity. (Qur'an, 2:143) Say [from Me]: "O My servants, you who have transgressed against yourselves, do not despair of the mercy of God. Truly God forgives all wrong actions. He is the Ever-Forgiving, the Most Merciful." (Qur'an, 39:53)
He sends down Clear Signs to His servant to bring you out of the darkness and into to the light. God is All-Gentle with you, Most Merciful. (Qur'an, 57:9)
The Bible also reveals that God is compassionate: Because of the tender mercy of our God, by which the rising sun will come to us from heaven... (Luke, 1:78) ... God is full of compassion and mercy... (James, 5:11) As does the Torah: The LORD watches over all who love Him, but He will destroy all the wicked. (Psalm, 145:20) The LORD is compassionate and gracious... abounding in love. (Psalm, 103:8)
