"Verily, Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.": Surah al-Baqara verses;73

Allah discussed this pardon or speak of the great virtue called 'forgiveness' not only in one place, but Allah Ta'ala ordered the Prophet (peace be upon him) with the mention of his forgiveness and emphasized deeply.

Allah Taa’la declared,

 '(You) continue forgiving and order for good deeds. And avoid them those are stupid (meaningless arguments) ”(Surah A'raf: Verse 199).

In response to one of the questions of the Prophet (peace be upon him), the Zibril, the messenger of Allah, replied, “If anyone oppresses you, forgive him; Give to the person who refuses to give you anything. And recreate the relationship with the person who breaks kinship with you.”

In society, that person is said to possess great qualities, which has the courtesy of 'forgiveness'. Often things are not decided by seeking revenge without forgiveness. To overcome a wasted behavior or wrongdoing, forgiveness works hundreds of times more than anger, harsh behavior, strong temper and revenge.
