Daily Hadith [5-19
Abu Qatadah (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that he heard the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) saying:
That who likes that Allah may save him from the calamities of the Resurrection Day, should either give respite to a debtor or grant him remission (of loans) in straitened circumstances.
(Reported by Muslim)
- One should be lenient with his debtor; he may either postpone the repayment date or acquit him of the debt altogether.
- The tolerant creditor has a great merit and a bounteous reward. If he absolves the debtor from the debt, Allah will absolve him from his sins and admit him to Paradise.
