Asking For Forgiveness: A Great Honor.

1 post in this topic

As-Salaam alaikum,

Says Allah, Azzah Wa Jallah, in the Holy Qur'an:--

   "AND SEEK FORGIVENESS OF ALLAH. INDEED ALLAH IS FORGIVING AND MERCIFUL" (73:29)

   "SURELY, ALLAH LOVES THOSE PEOPLE WHO CONSTANTLY REPENT TO HIM" (2:222)

 

 Note that in above verse/ayat (2:222), Allah did not say, 'Allah loves the Taa'ibeen (those who repent), but He said, Tawwabeen, which means those who constantly... over and over, repent.

As humans, we sometimes tend to strap off the path for a while. What should we do when we realize we erred ?  How do we ensure that our repentance is sincere, consistent and successful? There are 3 main steps one must take in order to sincerely repent:--

 (1) Deeply regret with a sincere heart for the sin committed.

 (2) Return to Allah Ta'ala for forgiveness: recite lots of Instighfar

(3) Make a strong intention never to return to that same sin again.

May Allah Ta'ala help us in returning to Him... always... ameen.
