THE REWARD OF FORGIVING PEOPLE

The Reward of Forgiving People
عن أنس بن مالك رضي الله عنه أن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: إذا وقف العباد للحساب جاء قوم واضعي سيوفهم على رقابهم تقطر دما فازدحموا على باب الجنة فقيل: من هؤلاء قيل الشهداء كانوا أحياء مرزوقين ثم نادى مناد: ليقم من أجره على الله فليدخل الجنة ثم نادى الثانية: ليقم من أجره على الله فليدخل الجنة قال: ومن ذا الذي أجره على الله قال العافون عن الناس ثم نادى الثالثة ليقم من أجره على الله فليدخل الجنة فقام كذا وكذا ألفا فدخلوها بغير حساب رواه الطبراني بإسناد حسن (الترغيب والترهيب رقم 3724)

Hazrat Anas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “On the Day of Qiyaamah, when the servants of Allah Ta‘ala will be standing and waiting for their reckoning to be taken, a group of people will come with their swords placed and hanging on their necks, dripping with blood. This group will crowd around the door of Jannah before entering. A person will ask, “Who are these people?” Someone will answer, “These are the martyrs. They remained alive (after gaining martyrdom, as martyrs never die) and were blessed with sustenance from Allah Ta‘ala.” Thereafter, someone will announce, “Those people who Allah has taken responsibility for granting them the reward from His side should stand and enter Jannah.” The announcement will then be made for a second time, “Those people who Allah has taken responsibility for granting them the reward from His side should stand and enter Jannah.” Someone will then ask, “Who are the people who Allah has taken responsibility for granting them the reward from His side?” The answer will be given, “They are those people who had the habit of forgiving people in the world.” The announcement will then be made for the third time, “Those people who Allah has taken responsibility for granting them the reward from His side should stand and enter Jannah.”A few thousand people will then stand and enter Jannah without any reckoning.”
