Allah, the Exalted, is full of forgiveness for mankind

I take refuge with Allaah, the Exalted, from the accursed devil.

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَـنِ الرَّحِيمِ

May the Peace and Blessings of Allah Azza wa Jal, our Lord Glorified and Praised be He, be upon our beloved  Prophet, his Family, and Companions.

Allah, the Exalted, is full of forgiveness for mankind.

وَيَسْتَعْجِلُونَكَ بِالسَّيِّئَةِ قَبْلَ الْحَسَنَةِ وَقَدْ خَلَتْ مِن قَبْلِهِمُ الْمَثُلَـتُ وَإِنَّ رَبَّكَ لَذُو مَغْفِرَةٍ لِّلنَّاسِ عَلَى ظُلْمِهِمْ وَإِنَّ رَبَّكَ لَشَدِيدُ الْعِقَابِ

(6. They ask you to hasten the evil before the good, while exemplary punishments have indeed occurred before them. But verily, your Lord is full of forgiveness for mankind, in spite of their wrongdoing. And verily, your Lord is (also) severe in punishment.)

Surah 13 Ar Rad Verse 6

Tafsir Ibn Kathir

Allah said,

(They ask you to hasten), in reference to the disbelievers,

(the evil before the good,) meaning, the punishment. Allah said in other Ayat that they said,

(And they say: “O you to whom the Dhikr (the Qur’an) has been sent down! Verily, you are a mad man! Why do you not bring angels to us if you are of the truthful” We send not the angels down except with the truth (i.e. for torment), and in that case, they (the disbelieves) would have no respite!)(15:6-8), and two Ayat;

(And they ask you to hasten on the torment!)(29:53-54) Allah also said,

(A questioner asked concerning a torment about to befall.) (70:1),

(Those who believe not therein seek to hasten it, while those who believe are fearful of it, and know that it is the very truth.)(42:18), and,

(They say: “Our Lord! Hasten to us Qittana.)(38:16), meaning, our due torment and reckoning. Allah said that they also supplicated,

 (And (remember) when they said: “O Allah! If this (the Qur’an) is indeed the truth from You.)(8:32) They were such rebellious, stubborn disbelievers that they asked the Messenger to bring them Allah’s torment. Allah replied,

(while exemplary punishments have indeed occurred before them.) Meaning, `We have exerted Our punishment on the previous disbelieving nations, and made them a lesson and example for those who might take heed from their destruction.’ If it was not for His forbearance and forgiveness, Allah would have indeed punished them sooner. Allah said in another Ayah,

(And if Allah were to punish men for that which they earned, He would not leave a moving creature on the surface of the earth.)(35:45) Allah said in this honorable Ayah,

(But verily, your Lord is full of forgiveness for mankind in spite of their wrongdoing.) He is full of forgiveness, pardoning and covering the mistakes of people, in spite of their wrongdoing and the errors committed night and day. Allah next reminds that His punishment is severe, so that fear and hope are both addressed and mentioned. Allah said in other Ayat,

(If they belie you, say: “Your Lord is the Owner of vast mercy, and never will His wrath be turned back from the people who are criminals.”)(6:147)

(Verily, your Lord is quick in retribution and certainly He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.)(7:167), and,

(Declare unto My servants that truly I am the Oft-Forgiving, the Most Merciful. And that My torment is indeed the most painful torment.)(15:49-50) There are many other Ayat that mention both fear and hope.
