Huqooq ul ibaad
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
The concept of sins can be generally divided into two parts:
- Sins one does against one’s own soul by transgressing the prescribed Boundaries of Allah Subhanah (shirk, kufr, zina, consuming riba, wine, etc.), or not fulfilling the obligatory duties unto his Lord Creator (prayer, zakah, Hajj, etc.)
- Sins one does against Allah’s creation, whereby one hurts, abuses, or unjustly consumes the rights of another.
If one commits sins against one’s own soul, absolutely regardless of whatever evil one might have done in one’s past….if one turns unto their Lord Creator in ‘taubah’ and seeks sincere forgiveness for their sins before they meet with their appointment of death….it is expected that they will find their Lord Forgiving and Merciful.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 39 Surah Zumur verses 53-54:
(O Prophet) say: “O My servants who have wronged their own souls….Do not despair of Allah’s Mercy! Surely, Allah forgives all sins. He indeed is the All Forgiving, All Merciful. Return to your Lord and submit to Him before the scourge overtakes you; for then you may get no help from anywhere.”
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 3 Surah Ale Imraan verse 135-136:
Allah likes such good people very much, who, if ever they commit a base deed or wrong their own soul by the commission of a sin, remember Allah instantly, and ask for forgiveness from Him for their shortcomings. For who, but Allah, can forgive sins? (And Allah loves those) who do not knowingly persist in the wrongs they did. These will be rewarded with forgiveness from Allah, and with Gardens beneath which canals flow, and they will reside therein forever! How excellent is the reward of those who do good deeds!
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 25 Surah Furqaan verses 63-71:
The (true) servants of the Merciful are those who walk humbly on the earth. When the ignorant people behave insolently towards them, they say, “Peace to you”; (And those) who pass their nights in prostrating themselves and standing before their Lord and pray, “O our Lord, save us from the torment of Hell, for its torment is killing! It is an evil abode, and an evil resting place”. (And those) who, when they spend are neither extravagant, nor miserly, but keep the golden mean between the two extremes. (And those) who do not invoke any god but Allah Alone, nor kill a soul unjustly, which Allah has forbidden, nor commit adultery… He who does this shall be punished for his sin, and his torment shall be doubled on the Day of Resurrection, and he shall abide in a state of ignominy; EXCEPT THE ONE WHO MAY HAVE REPENTED (AFTER THOSE SINS), AND HAVE BELIEVED AND DONE RIGHTEOUS DEEDS. For then, Allah will change his evil deeds into good deeds, and He is very Forgiving and Merciful. In fact, one who repents and does righteous deeds, returns to Allah as one rightly should!
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anaam verse 54:
When those come to you who believe in Our Signs, say: "Peace be on you! Your Lord had inscribed for Himself (the rule of) Mercy. Verily if any of you did evil in ignorance, and thereafter repented and amended (his conduct), Lo! He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful."
Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 2357 Narrated by Abdullah ibn Mas'ud
Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "He who repents of a sin is like him who has committed no sin."
Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 2338 Narrated by Abdullah ibn Umar
Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "Allah accepts a servant's repentance (taubah) till he gives up his spirit in death."
But if one has abused, hurt, cheated upon, or unjustly consumed the right of another, then it is absolutely imperative that for such a sin to be forgiven one needs to seek forgiveness for their sin not only from their Lord Creator, but also from the person whom they have unjustly abused.
Sahih Muslim Hadith 6251 Narrated by Abu Hurayrah
Allah's Messenger (saws) said: ‘Do you know who is a ‘muflis’ (abjectly poor or one who is totally bankrupt)?’ They (the Companions (r.a.) of the Prophet (saws)) said: ‘A ‘muflis’ amongst us is one who has neither dirham with him nor wealth.’ He (the Prophet (saws)) said: ‘The ‘muflis’ of my Ummah would be he who would come on the Day of Resurrection with prayers and fasts and Zakah but (he would find himself bankrupt on that day as he would have exhausted his funds of virtues) since he hurled abuses upon others, brought calumny against others, unlawfully consumed the wealth of others, shed the blood of others, and beat others. His virtues would be credited to the account of one (who suffered at his hand). And if his good deeds fall short to clear the account (of his mis-deeds), then their sins would be entered in (his account) and he would be thrown in the Hell-Fire!’
Your Question: ….if suppose one man is cheating an another and due to this the one who has been traited or( cheated ) facing very bad experince in his life and h is not forgiving the person who cheated him means is it possible that allah can forgive each and every individual after death at the day of judgement
If one abused or cheated one amongst Allah’s creation and subsequently sought forgiveness from that person and from Allah Subhanah for their injustice….but the person whom he had cheated is not willing to forgive him the crime for whatever reason….if the person was indeed sincere in his repentance, it is expected that on the Day of Judgment, Allah Subhanah will turn towards such a repentant believer with His Forgiveness and His Mercy.
And for the pain that this person unjustly caused upon his victim, for which the victim was not willing to forgive him…..on the Day of Judgment, The Lord Most Gracious will, from Himself, compensate the victim until the victim is completely and totally satisfied with his retribution.
But if one abused or cheated or unjustly usurped the rights of another, and did not seek forgiveness for his evil neither from Allah nor his victim, before he met with his appointment of death….then his case is with Allah Subhanah Alone…if Allah Wills and Pleases, He may forgive him his sin and compensate the victim from Himself; or if the Lord Most High Wills and Pleases, He may hold him to account and extract full retribution.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
