The Courage To Apologize

The Courage To Apologize In Islam


How to get the courage to apologize?

Apologizing is one of the most important virtues in any human life. An apology can solve problems and release the soul from prejudice, hatred, envy, and doubt. It is proof of courage, purity, self-righteousness, and strength. A good person is easy to forgive others’ mistakes because he did not hide evil or cheat on his way.

Among the most beautiful and eloquent illustrations of a truly noble character is to be found in their apology. The courage to apologize, or even in some cases humble oneself is a hallmark of a truly great person, who has no fear or shame in humbling themselves and admitting their wrongdoings. The greatest example of this is that of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).


The courage to apologize is a characteristic that only the best of people possess. It is an act of bravery, humility, and true spiritual strength to be able to publicly apologize. It is an action that can clear your conscience, redeem you in the eyes of others and boost your own self-esteem.

The Courage To Apologize:

During the well-known journey of Prophet Moosa may Allah exalt his mention and Khidr may Allah exalt his mention, there was a condition between them. As part of that condition, Khidr strictly forbade Moosa from asking any questions regarding incidents that might happen on their way until they complete their journey. But due to his quick-reacting attitude towards injustice, Moosa violated this condition. But as soon as he realized his mistake, he confessed and apologized quickly.

Allah the Exalted has given us the good news that the Prophet sallallaahu `alayhi  wa  Sallam ( may  Allah exalt his mention ) would not incline to reside in Makkah, and he will not stay there. But, O Allah! There is no doubt that they will continuously whisper in his ears and try to incline him towards staying in Makkah because this time is the time when you are allowed to stay with your family and other people.


The Messenger of Allah sallallaahu `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allah exalt his mention ) said: “O people Ansar!” They said: Messenger of Allah, here we are at your disposal. He sallallaahu  `Alayhi  wa  Sallam ( may  Allah exalt his mention ) said: “You were saying that love for his city and tenderness towards his people have overpowered this man.”


Just as the Messenger of Allah Sallallahu `alayhi  wa  Sallam ( may  Allah exalt his mention ) did not let go of the situation unless he sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  Sallam ( may  Allah exalt his mention ) revealed his intention, which soothed their souls. When the Ansar heard what the Prophet said they apologized and He accepted their apology and believed them

The Courage To Apologize:

A mistake is something that has happened accidentally. A person who makes a mistake will feel sorry and apologize. When the apology is accepted, everything is forgotten. If the apology is not accepted, then it isn’t a mistake. So, whoever does not accept the apology becomes mistaken instead of a victimizer.


The Fuqaha’ (scholars) have said that the one who refuses to apologize is a liar. With no apology, lies are mixed in the heart of the person. When he says something with a bad intention towards someone, he may not be aware of it, but in his heart, it is mixed with falsities and lies. As for those people who fear Allah and His religion, they will not be silent about what they say and do. They prefer that their intentions are known rather than keep them inside their hearts.

Apologize to others in your life, it may be hard at first, but by doing this you will find peace in the long run. When a man apologized to Al-Hassan ibn Sahl, one of the most famous scholars of his time. He told him that when a person comes to you and says “I apologize” between two good deeds, it will become void.


The Courage to Apologize is a book that will help you to master the art of apologizing, build better relationships, and learn how to forgive others. You may never be able to change another person’s behavior with an apology, but you can take control of your own reactions and feelings. When we refuse to apologize because we’re afraid of being judged or humiliated in public, we give up our power as human beings.


The apology is a revolutionary new way to overcome misunderstandings and disputes and promote harmony in one’s relationships. The Courage to Apologize offers practical advice on how to apologize when someone has been wronged. This book is for all people who want to learn about the true Islamic teaching on this subject, as opposed to the false beliefs we often encounter in daily life.
