Allah’s Mercy encompasses all things. This is great news for us as a sinful servant to not despair from the Mercy of Allah.
Narrated Abu Hurairah that The Prophet (ﷺ) said,
لَمَّا خَلَقَ اللَّهُ الْخَلْقَ كَتَبَ فِى كِتَابِهِ – هُوَ يَكْتُبُ عَلَى نَفْسِهِ ، وَهْوَ وَضْعٌ عِنْدَهُ عَلَى الْعَرْشِ – إِنَّ رَحْمَتِى تَغْلِبُ غَضَبِى
“When Allah created the Creation, He wrote in His Book–and He wrote (that) about Himself, and it is placed with Him on the Throne–‘Verily My Mercy overcomes My Anger'” [al-Bukhari].
This hadith shows how His Forgiveness toward the believers prevails over His Wrath.
Knowing this virtue, thus, should encourage us to seek Allah’s pleasure.
Allah says in His Book,
۞ … إِنَّ رَحْمَتَ اللَّهِ قَرِيبٌ مِنَ الْمُحْسِنِينَ ۞
“… Indeed, the mercy of Allah is near to the doers of good.” [al A’raf: 56]
The above ayah quoted, ‘believers who do good deeds’ (Muhsinun) means ‘doing good by worshiping Allah and doing good to all creatures in the world.’
Narrated Abdullah ibn Amr ibn al-‘As that the Prophet (ﷺ) said,
الرَّاحِمُونَ يَرْحَمُهُمُ الرَّحْمَنُ ارْحَمُوا أَهْلَ الْأَرْضِ يَرْحَمْكُمْ مَنْ فِي السَّمَاءِ
“The Compassionate One has mercy on those who are merciful. If you show mercy to those who are on the earth, He Who is in heaven will show mercy to you” [Abi Dawud, classed as Saheeh by Al-Albani].
