Do you know 'Utba married the Prophet's daughter, Sayyida Ruqayyah and divorced her out of spite before he accepted Islam. He came to Rasūlullāh ﷺ years later. Guess what? The Prophet ﷺ forgave him and he accepted Islam. The son of Abu Jahl waged war against him for two decades. Guess what? He came years later and Rasūlullāh ﷺ told people not to speak about his father in front of him, forgave him - and he accepted Islam. The Prophet's ﷺ daughter, Zaynab fell off a camel and suffered a miscarriage because of a man named Habbar who was trying to prevent her from migrating. Many years later, he came to Rasūlullāh ﷺ but guess what? The Prophet forgave him and he accepted Islam.
Wahshi killed the Prophet's uncle Sayyiduna Hamza. He came years later and guess what? Rasūlullāh ﷺ forgave him and he accepted Islam. Uthman ibn Talha would prevent him from entering the Ka'bah before he accepted Islam. Rasūlullāh ﷺ conquered Makkah and guess what? The Prophet ﷺ gave him and his family the keys for the Ka'bah until the end of time. Fadala came to assassinate Rasūlullāh whilst he was making Tawaf and guess what? He placed his hand on his chest, forgave him, and he accepted Islam.
Allah said, 'Surely you have in Rasūlullāh ﷺ a beautiful example.' The crimes of people were great but his mercy ﷺ was greater. Dear ummah, forgive people. Wouldn't you love for Allah to forgive you?
