Forgiveness is Considered as Charity

forgiveness is charity

When someone does bad to you, but you choose to forgive that person, Allah will consider this as a charity. Your forgiveness is charity.

A hadith from ‘Ubadah ibn as-Samit (may Allah blesses him). He said: I heard the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) says :⁣⁣

مَا مِنْ رَجُلٍ يُجْرَحُ فِي جَسَدِهِ جِرَاحَةً فَيَتَصَدَّقُ بِهَا إِلَّا كَفَّرَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ مِثْلَ مَا تَصَدَّقَ بِهِ

“There is no man who suffers an injury to his body, then he forgives [the one who caused it] as an act of charity, but Allah will absolve his sins commensurate with the extent of his charity”.⁣

[Ahmad, classed as sahih by al-Albani in as-Sahihah]⁣⁣.

Islam allows you to repay badness in kind, but forgiving is better and considered as charity.
