5:13 The breach of the covenant

1 min read

But because of their breach of their covenant, We cursed them, and made their hearts grow hard; they change the words from their (right) places and forget a good part of the message that was sent them, nor wilt thou cease to find them- barring a few – ever bent on (new) deceits: but forgive them, and overlook (their misdeeds): for Allah loveth those who are kind.

The Prophet said, “God loves kindness and compensates (you) for it in a way that He doesn’t compensate (you) for harshness or anything else.”  (Muslim)  In other words, God rewards kindness and goodness, while punishing those who are harsh and mean.
