He who is the Forgiving, the Merciful

 

Mercy is a divine gift 
Without mercy there is only 
Hate and retaliation

"An eye for an eye "
Sounds reasonable
Until everybody is blind

The escalation of evil
Is without end
And has NO justification

Justice is not ours
Mercy is not ours
They are divine attributes

"Lord have mercy 
Upon me 
Upon us 
Upon the world"

 

– In the islamic phrase b-ismi-llāhi r-raḥmāni r-raḥīmi

“In the name of God, the most gracious, the most merciful”

The beautiful invocation at the begin of the book of recitation

– In the psalms

“For you, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive;
and plenteous in mercy to all them that call on you.”

The LORD is good to all: tender mercies are over all his works.

– In the gospel of Luke :

“Be you therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.”

– In the bhagavad Gita the Blessed Lord said:

“Fearlessness, purification of one’s existence, cultivation of spiritual knowledge, charity, self-control, performance of sacrifice, study of the Vedas, austerity and simplicity; nonviolence, truthfulness, freedom from anger; renunciation, tranquility, aversion to faultfinding, compassion and freedom from covetousness; gentleness, modesty and steady determination; vigor, forgiveness, fortitude, cleanliness, freedom from envy and the passion for honor-these transcendental qualities, O son of Bharata, belong to godly men endowed with divine nature.”
