BEAUTIFUL QUR’ANIC VERSES
All Qur’anic verses are God’s Words. Let us read and enjoy some magnificent texts of the Glorious Qur’an that reveal the Islamic view concerning some critical and significant concepts.
Forgiveness and Salvation
“Say, ‘O My servants who have committed excess against themselves, do not despair of Allah’s mercy. Indeed, Allah forgives all sins, for it is He who is the Ever-forgiving, Merciful.” (39:53)
When a soul repents and returns to Allah, He turns back to His servant in acceptance and forgiveness.
Yes, Allah forgives all sins when we go sincerely back to Him. What a great deal!
“Indeed, Allah loves those who repent, and He loves those who purify themselves.” (2: 222)
Allah, in Islam, is the source of peace, mercy, and forgiveness; not the source of hate, bloodshed, or terrorism.
So, in Islam, to get salvation and eternal life you can simply go back to Allah, believe in Him alone, and do good deeds. No need for an innocent, good person to be crucified or killed for the sins committed by others. Islam also commands its followers (Muslims) to forgive others.
This is briefly the beautiful concept of salvation and forgiveness in Islam. Indeed, it is a religion of mercy and forgiveness.
“O you who believe! Stand out firmly for Allah as just witnesses; and let not the hatred of a people make you avoid justice. Be just; that is next to piety, and fear Allah for Allah is well-acquainted with all that you do.” (5:8)
Islam teaches us to be just with all people, whether with friends or foes; and at all times, in peace or in war.
It teaches its followers to conduct themselves with unconditional justice and morality free from individual whims, social and cultural circumstances, or temporal relativism.
“Allah does command you that you restore deposits to their owners, and, if you judge between mankind, that you judge with justice.” (4:58)
As a practical manifestation of its beauty, eternal values, mercy, and justice, Islam commands us to protect what Muslim scholars call: The Five Necessities.
