Here are few notes regarding virtues of forgiveness'
 
Forgiveness (Afw): not getting revenge while one has the means to get even with one’s enemies or with aguilty party. It is to treat those with goodness who do evil things to him.
 
Forgiveness (Musamahat): foregoing things, that are not necessary to forego, willingly in order to be helpful to others. Another meaning of “Musamahat” is not seeing others’ faults.
 
Forgiveness signifies overlooking the offence and sin of a person who has purposefully or mistakenly done you wrong, such as insulting you by his words, beating you up or taking your property is called "forgiveness".
 
The Messenger of Allah said: "The best deed before Allah is to pardon a person who has wronged you, to show affection for relatives who have broken ties with you, and to act generously towards a person who has deprived you". Thereafter he recited the following holy verses: "Turn to forgiveness and enjoin good and turn aside from ignorant" (7:199).
 
Forgiveness is important for several reasons. If one desires to be forgiven for his offenses he must learn to forgive others. If one seeks forgiveness from Allah, he should learn to forgive others. If one desires that Allah overlook his weaknesses, he should learn to overlook weaknesses of others.
 
1. For the after-life or the life in the Hereafter - seeking forgiveness is a sign of humility and forgiving others is a sign of magnanimity.
 
2. It brings happiness in the worldly life - psychologically, it brings happiness, in addition, forgiving improves the relations with other people by bringing good reputation and respect.
 
 May we be amongst those who forgive others. Aameen

Imam Shafi was reported to have said, when he fell seriously ill, "praise to Allah, who has sent me illness rather than allow me to fall into sin." I think that's a good example of real gratitude, to be thankful for whatever is sent to you, whether you like it or not, you know, "it may be that ye dislike a thing, and Allah brings about through it a great deal of good." (IV/19)
