“Be gentle/forgiving, and gentleness/forgiveness shall be rendered to you.”

Saheeh | As-Saheehah | 1456

Reported from Ibn ’Abbaas, may Allaah be pleased with him, in marfoo’ form.

Explaining it, al-Manawi said in al-Faid, “Deal with Allaah’s creation who are [all] dependent on Him and are His slaves with gentleness and ease, and their Lord will render the same to you in this world and the Hereafter.”

Faid al-Qadir, vol. 1, p. 512.
