Allah asks us not to betray one another, but it happens anyway. Allah revealed in Surah Anfil:
“O you who have believed, do not betray Allah and the Messenger or betray your trusts while you know [the consequence].” [Qur'an 8:27].
It's funny how sometimes the person that you would take a bullet for is the one that pulls the trigger. Betrayal is something that hurts you to your soul. Especially when it comes from someone that you trusted or loved. Your feelings of betrayal can range from sadness, disappointment, surprise, to out right mad as hell. And you may feel at some point, all of the above.
Here is the thing, you can't control what they did or said, but you can control what you are going to do. I recommend forgiveness. Yes, forgiveness doesn't always lead to a healed relationship. And yes I get it, it is very hurtful when a friend or spouse, whom you had loved the most, is the one who breaks your heart. You had beautiful memories together, sharing the laughter as well as the sadness. But suddenly what you had together has gone because of the betrayal. You just cannot trust them anymore because you are afraid that they will hurt you again. And there is a strong likelihood they will.
But It is what it is…. Some relationships are just NOT meant to be. Deal with it. Let Allah handle it. And Forgive them anyway and let what's meant to be….BE. Your forgiveness has less to do with them, but more to do with you getting over them, and moving on with your life. After every sunset there will be a sunrise in the morning. Love you family. As-salaamu alaikum.
