In this world, our beloved Prophet Muhammad S.A.W is the person who is famous for his merciful nature as he used to forgive even his worst enemies. Allah himself has given the indication of His Prophet nature in Quran (21:107) saying that he is the mercy to all creation.
Here are few people who are being forgiven by Prophet Muhammad S.A.W despite all the offenses which they have committed against Him.
01-Thumama Ibn Uthal: Thumama was amongst the Arabs leaders of Banu Hanifah and Yammama. Our Prophet S.A.W sent him a letter inviting him to accept Islam; in response to which he killed many companions of our Holy Prophet S.A.W.
Later, he was caught by Muslims and he was tied in Prophets Mosque in Madina. During his imprisonment, Prophet Muhammad S.A.W ensured that he is treated well. He requested Prophet S.A.W to release him for money or forgive him.
Prophet S.A.W instructed his companions to release him unconditionally which inspired Thumama that he accepted Islam. He later performed Umrah and became the first Muslim to recite Talbiyah around the Holy Kaaba.
02-Wahshi Ibn Harb: Hamza Ibn Abi Talib, the beloved uncle of Hazrat Muhammad S.A.W was killed by Wahshi Ibn Harb during the battle of Uhud. It proved to be a great setback as he was a great supporter of Muslims and Islam.
This killing brought great sorrow and pain for our Prophet S.A.W but still, he forgave him after Wahshi accepted Islam.
03-Hind Bint Utbah: Another very strong opponent of Islam and Prophet Muhammad S.A.W was Hind Bint Utbah who was always busy in provoking Quraish to harm the Muslims. She was the wife of Abu Sufyan Ibn Harb who himself was the dire opponent of Muslims.
Despite all her ill doings, she was also forgiven by our Prophet Muhammad S.A.W after the conquest of Makkah and after she accepted Islam.
04-Abu Sufyan Ibn Harb: Abu Sufyan Ibn Harb was the leader of the Quraish and one of the most fervent enemies of Islam and Prophet Muhammad S.A.W. He practically led many wars against the Prophet S.A.W and Muslims which also resulted in persecutions of many Muslims.
After the conquest of Makkah, he asked for forgiveness and accepted Islam. Prophet Muhammad S.A.W not only forgave him but also announced pardon for all those who would enter Abu Sufyan house.
05-Safwan Ibn Umayah: Safwan Ibn Umayah created a plot for killing Prophet Muhammad S.A.W in collaboration with Umayr Ibn Wahb which proved to be a failed attempt.
After the successful conquest of Makkah Hazrat Muhammad S.A.W told Umayr to communicate this thing to Safwan Ibn Umayah that he has been granted an amnesty of four months during which he can live in Makkah as a free man.
It was a great shock for him as he already feared his execution because of his heinous crimes and he was making plans to hide and run from Makkah. After the battle of Battle of Hunayn, he was also rewarded by Holy Prophet S.A.W an entire valley of camels for his help in providing weaponry.
He got so impressed by the behavior that he accepted Islam and urge other people also to believe Allah and his Prophet.
Along with these, we can also find many other examples that are an indicator of our Prophets S.A.W merciful nature
