Only With Forgiveness

“I will never forgive the man who harmed my kids. he is not my husband. He is a syaitan (satan). Because of him we aregoing to have a bleak Hari Raya,” said Che Ku Zaimah Ku Awang when Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Said visited her yesterday.

Eight-year-old Nurul Dahyatul Fazlina Khalib was so badly disfigured in the acid attack that Ahmad sobbed openly when he saw her. Even medical officers and members of the media who accompanied him could not hold back their tears.

But Ku Zaimah was strong. “This is takdir (fate),” she was heard murmuring.

(Detail news here)

I can understand the deep resentment that a woman, a wife and a mother felt towards the man who was supposed to be the protector of the family. A man, a husband and a father has betrayed his family. The physical injuries will leave a permanent scar, but the wound in the heart of the child might not heal.

" I will never forgive him"

While the crime committed by the man seems unforgivable, the woman is now punishing herself and her child with the declaration. I am not worried about the man, he will receive the punishment he deserved, if not here, in the here after. But I felt really sorry for the woman. The deep anger will keep her imprisoned. She would be carrying a heavy burden in her heart.

I pray that Allah will send His Mercy to this woman and her children. May Allah opens her heart for forgiveness.

Only with forgiveness would she ever find the real peace in her soul.

Only with forgiveness would she be healed.

Dari Abu Darda' meriwayatkan, aku mendengar Rasulullah s.a.w bersabda: Tidak ada seorang pun yg menderita sakit, disebabkan oleh seseorang kemudian dia memaafkannya, kecuali Allah menaikkan darjatnya dgn satu tingkat, dan menghapuskan baginya satu dosa. (HR Tirmizi)
Dari Abu Hurairah meriwayatkan bahawa Rasulullah s.a.w bersabda: Musa bin Imran a.s berkata: Wahai Tuhanku, siapakah orang yg paling mulia pada pandanganMu? Allah s.w.t menjawab: Barangsiapa yg memberi maaf meskipun dia memiliki kemampuan untuk membalas dendam. (HR Baihaqi)
