When Forgetting is a Good Thing

[Being able] to forget is a blessing from Allāh. If a person remembered some things, he’d be living a worried, troubled life. That’s why forgetting about loved ones having gone; about wrongs having been done [to us] by people; about [various] pains and afflictions [having been suffered in the past]; and [even] forgetting at times about some people who are still alive–all of that is a blessing from Allāh.

The only [thing that matters] is your looking out to remember things that are good for you and get you closer to your Mawlá [the One who manages your affairs and supports you]. Anything other than that: its being forgotten is better for you than its being remembered.
