Al-'Afūw The Pardoner, The Most Forgiving, The Effacing, The Eliminator of Sins : is one the 99 names of Allah [1] God The Most High..
- The One who blots out and leaves no trace of any sin or fault.
- The One who passes over and absolves any fault.
- The One who can remove and obliterate all traces of wrong actions.
- The One who can make any sin, error or fault disappear.

From the root 'a-f-a which has the following classical Arabic connotations:

to forgive, pardon
to pass over, forgo, absolve
to obliterate all traces, efface, remove
to kill-off, allow to die
to turn away from punishing, not see, annul
to make unapparent, imperceptible
to give spontaneously, to give without constraint
to give more than what is due

This name is used in the Qur'ān. For example, see Quran 4:99 :

{ and Allah is ever Pardoning and Forgiving }

The words Ghafūr and Ghaffār denote simply forgiving or protecting, while 'Afūw indicates complete removal or obliteration of the condition.

this is the most beautiful quote that i love so much its show the love and forgiveness of God The Most High. here the quote :

“ When my heart became constricted and my paths became narrow
I took my hope in Your pardon and forgiveness as an opening and an escape
My sins seemed very great to me but when I compared them to Your forgiveness
I found Your forgiveness to be greater ”


God is is the Forgiving, the Merciful :

{ 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.” }

The Quran 39:53

another translations :

{ Say, O My servants, who have committed excesses against their own souls, do not despair of God’s mercy, for God surely forgives all sins. He is truly the Most Forgiving, the Most Merciful }

{ (Muhammad), tell my servants who have committed injustice to themselves, “Do not despair of the mercy of God. God certainly forgives all sins. He is All-forgiving and All-merciful.” }

On the authority of Anas (may Allah be pleased with him), who said:
I heard the Messenger of Allah ,Muhammad, Peace Be Upon Him (ﷺ) say: Allah the Almighty said: O son of Adam, so long as you call upon Me and ask of Me, I shall forgive you for what you have done, and I shall not mind. O son of Adam, were your sins to reach the clouds of the sky and were you then to ask forgiveness of Me, I would forgive you. O son of Adam, were you to come to Me with sins nearly as great as the earth and were you then to face Me, ascribing no partner to Me, I would bring you forgiveness nearly as great as it.

It was related by at-Tirmidhi (also by Ahmad ibn Hanbal). Its chain of authorities is sound.

{ To whoever, male or female, does good deeds and has faith, We shall give a good life and reward them according to the best of their actions }
