23 Quran Verse About Peace and Forgiveness

Peace and a culture of forgiveness are important factors in life. In this world, of course all human beings never escape mistakes. Thus, one solution to correcting mistakes is to apologize and try not to repeat the same actions in the future.

But unlike apologizing, forgiving isn't really an easy thing. Everyone can apologize, but not everyone can fully forgive. Forgiving certainly requires a field of heart, sincerity and also a great soul. Especially if, the mistakes made cause considerable effect and hurt one's feelings so deep.

Allah said, "Good words and forgiveness are better than charity. God is Rich and Forbearing." – (QS. Al-Baqarah : 263).

In Islam, forgiveness has a very high spiritual value. The question of forgiving is also an indicator of disingness in a person. Of course, forgiveness plays an important role in the construction of a solid foundation of peace between others. This must be done to eliminate the grudge and hatred that can damage human relationships. Here we will present some verses of the Quran explaining about forgiveness and peace.
