Islam considers the family as the basic unit of human society. The foundation of a family is laid through marriage. Forgiveness is the important factor to lead a happy life.So, The relationship between husband and wife should be strong and everlasting.
Hazrat Muhammad (S.A.W.W) said:
“The best among you is he who treats the members of his family best.”
Forgiveness allows resumption of unity and to move forward as a couple. And make the bond much stronger between couple. If forgiveness does not occur for either small or large unkind words or actions, the bond often begins to fail.
ALLAH paak said in Quran:
“He has put affection between their hearts. Had you spent all that is in the earth you could not have put affection between their hearts, but Allah put affection between them; verily He is mighty, wise. It may be that Allah will create friendship between you and those whom you hold as enemies. Allah is all-powerful. Allah is oft-forgiving, ever-merciful.”
(Surah Mumtahana 60:7).
We often compare forgiveness with something warm and fuzzy, but forgiveness is quite the opposite. Forgiveness can be quite painful when it involves someone you are in live with. In marriage forgiveness is not “don’t worry about what you did” and the stuff likes this. In marriage forgiveness sounds spiritual and great coming out of our mouths. Forgiveness is not lip service, it’s a deep act.
