He who pardons all who repent sincerely as if they had no previous sin.
Whatever misfortune happens to you, is because of the things your hands have wrought, and for many (of them) HE GRANTS FORGIVENESS. Nor can ye frustrate (aught), (fleeing) through the earth; nor have ye, besides Allah. anyone to protect or to help. AL Quran (42:30-31)
From the root ‘a-f-a with the classical Arabic connotations: to forgive, pardon, forgo, absolve, to obliterate all traces, remove, to kill-off, allow to die, to turn away from punishing, not see, to make unapparent, imperceptible, to give spontaneously, to give without constraint, to give more than what is due.
