Forgiving those who hurt us

Q: My mother in law has passed away but when she was alive she created hatred in my husbands mind for me. When problems get worse I curse my mother in-law and say I will not forgive her. I try but cannot do. Will I be questioned for this on day of judgement. But she made my life hell.


A: Rasulullah (صلى الله عليه وسلم) had encouraged us in his mubaarak Ahaadith to overlook and forgive those who hurt us or caused us any type of pain. If we forgive others then Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) will forgive us and Allah (الله تعالى) will bless us with happiness. 

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
