Set Yourself Free

The sweetness of iman can also be tasted when you reconcile and mend the ties of kinship only for the sake of Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala).
It accompanies several rewards besides the greater rewards promised in the hereafter. Mending the ties of kinship for Allah lifts a massive slab of regret, guilt and hatred from your heart, replacing it with love and care. The cloud of mercy and compassion replenishes the smoke of negativity that prevents you from seeing the khair around and within you. It helps you rejuvenate your soul and remove the filth that was decaying within. In short, it truly liberates you and this is a hiba, a gift from your Rabb because you have been created to sore to great heights by freeing yourself of all the negativity within and around you, because forgiveness eventually sets you free.
