Forgiveness

And who eschew the more grievous sins and indecencies, and, when they are wroth, they forgive.

ISLAM, THE HOLY QURA’N, 42:38

Hasten to make peace with one another and forgive your brethren their sins. For he who is not inclined to make peace with his brother is wicked and will be cut off, because he is the cause of dissension.

Charity does not in any way decrease wealth and for the servant who forgives, Allah adds to his respect, and to the one who shows humility Allah elevates him in the estimation (of the people).

ISLAM, THE HOLY PROPHET(SA), THE HADITH OF SAHIH MUSLIM

Who is a God like You,

Forgiving iniquity

And remitting transgression;

Who has not maintained His wrath forever

Against the remnant of His own people,

Because He loves graciousness!

JUDAISM, NEVI’IM, MICAH 7:18

Then Peter came and said to him ‘Lord, if another member of the church sins against me, how often should I forgive? As many as seven times?’ Jesus said to him, ‘Not seven times, but, I tell you, seventy-seventimes.’

CHRISTIANITY, THE BIBLE, MATTHEW 18:21-22

O gracious Lord, I prostrate myself before you and ask for your blessing. As a father forgives his son, or a friend a friend, or a lover his beloved, so should you forgive me.
