Dear Brother’s and Sister’s,
I would like to share with you a very splendid and beautiful hadith about the mercy of Allah(SWT) and how he is the most forgiving. Insh’Allah we will keep turning back to Allah(SWT) for repentance because anything and everything can be forgiven. Everybody has their pasts, but thats it, its the past not the present or future. We all need to strive to make forward progression in our lives and not let the past get to us. So do not ever lose hope in Allah(SWT) mercy and forgiveness.
The hadith is:
Allah’s Messenger (saw) said: “Allah the Most High says: ‘O son of Adam! As long as you supplicate to Me and hope in Me, I will forgive you what you have done. O son of Adam! If your sins were to reach the lofty regions of the sky, then you ask Me for forgiveness, I would forgive you. O son of Adam! If you were to come to Me with enough sins to fill the earth, but you met Me not associating anything with Me I would bring you the like of it of forgiveness.” [Bukhari, 8/319]
Allah(SWT) mercy and forgiveness is unfathomable because this type of mercy does not exist anywhere. If a person transgresses and keeps on transgressing until all the transgressions can be counted up reaching towards the sky and the final result is forgiveness as long as we turned back to Allah(SWT) then why should we let one prayer slip away.
Insha’Allah we all turn back to Allah(SWT) and seek guidance, protection, mercy, and forgiveness through Allah(SWT) because it is He who can change up our fortune of our lives in this life and the next.
