Islam is a religion of peace - 5
So we find that far from spreading unnecessary hatred, the verses 60:7- 8 rather show how Allah (swt) reminds the Muslims that one day some of the people whom the Muslims consider to be their enemies, can turn into their friends. Therefore, the Muslims are commanded to show forgiveness because of the possibility of their foes turning into friends.
This command speaks volumes about the far-sightedness and All-knowing attribute of Allah (swt) and it also reminds me of another instance in the history of Islam in which Prophet Mohammad (saw) showed mercy towards his adversaries in the hope that their future generation may enter the fold of Islam.
The incidence goes like this:
At one point of time the hostility of the Makkans was on the rise and they misbehaved even with Prophet Mohammad (saw). At this critical juncture our Dear Prophet (saw) made up his mind to visit Taif. He was hopeful of getting a positive response to the message of Islam from the people of Taif. However, the people of Taif turned out to be even more stubborn and rebels. They chased Prophet Mohammad (saw) from their city and also injured him in the bargain.
Our Prophet (saw) prayed to Allah (swt) and moved towards Makkah. At this point, Hazrat Gibreel (as) visited our Prophet (saw) along with the angel of the mountains. (contd)
