Article: True rahmah (mercy)

by Umm Muawiyah

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Assalamu Alaikum.

When we think of mercy, we generally think of soft-hearted, easygoing people.

Why? Well, I guess it’s because we don’t see how any form of toughness (from our perspective) could be called “mercy”.

Ever heard of “tough love”? It’s when Person A show some toughness towards Person B in order for the latter to improve in the long run. So, Person A is actually showing MERCY to Person B.

Confused?

Don’t worry. Just read the following brilliant article by Imam Ibn Al-Qayyim (rahimahullah) and then you’ll understand, insha-Allah.

Oh and make sure you read the last sentence. That’s just mind-blowing.
