EXPLAIN four
reasons
(POINTS)
why
forgiveness is
important to
Muslims.
One of the
names for Allah
is MERCIFUL
Muslims are taught that if they realise
they have done wrong and promise not to
do the same again they will be forgiven
by Allah (He will show MERCY).
On the day of
judgement Allah
will show
forgiveness and
mercy to....
...those who show
mercy and
forgiveness to
their fellow
humans.
Muslims are taught that if they want to go to
paradise on the Day of Judgment they must
have shown mercy/forgiveness to others.
Muslims
recognise they
are all part of
the UMMAH and
so should have
good
relationships
with each other.
UR
Muhammad
taught that
people should
forgive and
reconcile so...
...they should
follow by
example and
follow his
teachings.
There are many teachings in the Qur’an about
forgiveness and reconciliation....
‘If a person forgives and
makes reconciliation, his
reward is due from God’
(Surah 42:40)
The Qur’an is full of
passages about the
forgiveness of Allah
and of his instructions
that Muslims should
also forgive. It is
important they follow
the will of Allah.
‘A kind word with
forgiveness is better
than charity followed by
injury’
(Surah 2:263)
‘Live as fellow brothers
and sisters, as Allah
has commended you’
(Hadith)
These mean...
One very
important way in
which Muslims
follow the
teachings on
forgiveness and
reconciliation is
during HAJJ.

Watch the
following clips
– pick TWO
examples
from HAJJ
and use them
as EXAMPLES
for two of
your POINTS
on why
forgiveness is
important to
Muslims.
Before going on Hajj
A Muslim is expected to
purify themselves. As
part of this they must
make peace with those
they have fallen out with
and ask for forgiveness
from those they we have
wronged. The IHRAM
worn are a symbol of this
purity.
IHRAM = a state of being
sacred.
The white robes show
equality and selflessness.
All Muslims wear the same
to show equality and
brotherhood as part of
the UMMAH (The
worldwide Muslim
community).
Mount Mercy
On the 2nd day of
the pilgrimage
known as the
"Day of
Arafat” the
pilgrims spend
the entire day
standing (or
sitting) near
the Mount of
Mercy, asking
Allah for
forgiveness and
making
supplications.
Stoning of the Devil
While this ritual does signify the defiance of
the devil, Muslims keep reciting the praises
of Allah and ask for forgiveness throughout.
Grade B

importance of
forgiveness in
Islam

that is
UNFORGIVABLE?
