IN THE NAME OF ALLAH THE MOST KIND THE MOST MERCIFUL.
SALUTATIONS BE UPON OUR BELOVED MASTER THE MESSENGER OF ALLAH THE ALMIGHTY IN ABUNDANCE.
ALLAH the Al-Mighty has mentioned in the glorious Qur’an,
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.” (39:53)
In this short life we have been blessed with, we must make sure we live this life in accordance to what our creator and his noble prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) have said and commanded us to do. We must adhere to all rulings that have been set to attain prosperity in this world and in the hereafter. If a person looks with an open heart and an open mind one will be compelled to admit that all the rules and injunctions have been put into place for our benefit. (As mentioned in the previous posts).
As humans, at times we make wrong judgements and do such actions which are prohibited in society and in our communities. For each crime committed a penalty has been put into place to prevent the occurrence of such behaviour. Similarly we may do actions which are contrary to the teachings of Islam due to our negligence or ignorance which may incur a penalty. The reason for this is to make sure we do not destroy ourselves, our souls and to make sure that the society we live in is in peace and harmony.
After committing a crime the least a person should feel is remorse. Remorse is the key ingredient and the right antidote to wipe out ones sins and to reduce the time or penalty the perpetrator may receive.
If a person does a heinous act and is put to trial, before giving the verdict the judge will ask the criminal do you plead guilty or not guilty?! If the criminal shows remorse and pleads guilty there is a high chance the sentence will be reduced.
On the same token my humble readers, we are all sinners of ALLAH the Almighty. As mentioned we are humans and we make mistakes but whenever we break the Command of the creator we must first be remorseful and ashamed of our actions and seek his forgiveness and thereafter keep trying to avoid sinning at all cost.
The difference between the court of ALLAH the Almighty and the court of this world is if you have been found guilty in this world, in the court of man, you HAVE to redeem yourself one way or the other. Either prison, community service or something else. Nevertheless an injunction is issued against you.
However my humble readers in the court of ALLAH the Almighty if forgiveness is sought not only is your crime dismissed but all your previous offences are forgiven, there is no longer a trial, no longer are you a criminal but rather after seeking forgiveness you have become a friend of ALLAH the Almighty. All your past sins are forgiven and it don’t end here my friends, there’s more……
All your bad deeds are changed into good deeds as ALLAH the Almighty has mentions in the glorious Quran,
“Except for those who repent, believe and do righteous work. For them Allah will replace their evil deeds with good. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful.” (25:70)
In this world in the court of man even after you have completed your sentence your name is kept on record for five years or depending on the crime maybe even a lifetime. But when we turn to ALLAH seeking his forgiveness he not only forgives us but there is no record kept of it!
NO RECORD AT ALL!
You are a free, cleansed, beautiful soul filled with peace and tranquility in our heart.
Wait there’s more…….
The place where you done the sin is made to forget as to not give evidence against you, the angels that write down your bad deeds, they are made to forget. Your sins are totally wiped away from your book of deeds. There is no trace of it whatsoever!
The sins which you may have done in the darkness of the night, alone, secretly, which you would never want anyone to know is a secret that will remain between you and your creator. A secret which once he has forgiven he will never bring up again. A secret once you have repented he will change into good deeds. A secret that he has concealed it for you from the world and he will continue concealing it from everyone for eternity.
How great is ALLAH the Almighty?
How forgiving is ALLAH the Almighty?
Can there be a better judge than ALLAH the Almighty?
Many a times I have heard people asking me will ALLAH the Almighty forgive me?
OF COURSE ALLAH the Almighty will forgive you! Without a shadow of a doubt! ALLAH the Almighty has not created us to destroy us! He created us to honour us!
ALLAH the Almighty says,
“I am as My servant thinks of Me. I am with him when he remembers Me. If he remembers Me within himself, I mention him within Myself. If he mentions me before company, I mention him before a greater company. If he draws near to Me a handspan, I draw near to him an arm’s length. If he draws near to Me an arm’s length, I come near to him the distance of outspread arms. If he comes to Me walking, I come to him running.”
(Bukhari and Muslim)
If you make something so magnificent and amazing are you going to make it just to throw it away? OF COURSE NOT!
In the same way my humble readers, ALLAH the Almighty has NOT created us to throw us away in hellfire. He has created every single being whether you are a Muslim or a Non-Muslim, ALLAH the Almighty has created us to honour us and to raise our status in paradise. All we have to do is believe in him as are creator, our master, ascribing no partners to him and if we sin we hurry to rectify that sin by asking for forgiveness.
ALLAH the Almighty says,
“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 its.” (Tirmidhi)
So my dear humble readers, my message for you today is,
NEVER LOSE HOPE IN THE MERCY OF ALLAH THE ALMIGHTY.
When you are alone and crying for help, HE IS THERE!
When you need a friend to talk to, HE IS THERE!
When you want something that no one can give, HE IS THERE
When you want a new start, a new direction in life, HE IS THERE!
When you want guidance, HE IS THERE!
When you are ill and doctors have lost hope, HE IS THERE!
When the people around you say you are worthless, he says NO YOU AINT!
When people knock you down on the ground, HE PICKS YOU UP!
SO WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?
Go and turn back to your creator who created you. Go and make him happy. Make amends with your creator. Go and redeem yourself. Go and save your soul and enter into peace and tranquility that everyone is in search for. Repent and turn back to ALLAH the Almighty. The peace and contentment you are looking for that money cannot buy is right under your nose. Repent to ALLAH the Almighty a sincere repentance your heart will be filled with peace and tranquility.
REMEMBER ALLAH THE ALMIGHTY IS NOT IN NEED OF US! WE ARE IN NEED OF HIM!
Our lords majestic pride and greatness will not decrease even the slightest if we turn our backs away from him. It will be us who will be at lost if we do not turn in repentance to him.
Go and attain your paradise. Be the best that you can be by pleasing The best! free your soul from pain and misery.
MY DEAR HUMBLE READERS, GO AND MAKE YOUR PARADISE.
I end by saying all praises are due to ALLAH the Almighty, owner of the heavens and the earth. Peace be upon all the prophets and messengers of ALLAH the Almighty especially upon our master Muhammad (peace and blessings of ALLAH the Almighty be upon him in abundance).
