Allah azza wa jal is charecterized by this word – wa man yaghfiru dunuba illa allah (And who forgives sins except Allah) / nabi’ ibaadi annee ala alghafur arraheem (Inform my servants that i am the most forgiving and the most merciful)

2. ghafoor – (noun form which emphasises the verb). The one who has the power to forgive no matter how large the sin – its about the quality
3. Ghaffar – No matter how continuous and frequent the sin is, Allah forgives. This is about frequency

how to earn Allah’s forgiveness

1. By asking for forgiveness and repenting and doing good
2. By learning to forgive people (And let not those of virtue among you and wealth swear not to give [aid] to their relatives and the needy and the emigrants for the cause of Allah , and let them pardon and overlook. Would you not like that Allah should forgive you? And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. Surah An Noor – 22)

The most optimistic ayat in the quran

Surah zumur – “Say, “O My servants who have transgressed against themselves [by sinning], do not despair of the mercy of Allah . Indeed, Allah forgives all sins. Indeed, it is He who is the Forgiving, the Merciful.”
