May Allah (SWT) grant us and all the Marhoomeen Forgiveness and Jannatul Firdaus (Ameen)
THE FRIDAY SERMON
SEEKING FORGIVENESS

By Sh Umar As-Subayyil - Imaam of Haram

The situation of the best amongst the pious and guided people is that when they sin, they seek Allaah's forgiveness and when they commit errors, they repent. The Prophet Sallallaahu Alayhi wa Sallam said, "All the sons of Adam are sinners and the best among the sinners are those who repent.' (Ahmad and others)

It is a manifestation of the mercy of Allaah upon his slaves that He stretches out His Hand during the night so that those who sin during the day may repent and stretches His Hand out during the day in order for those who sinned during the night to repent. He forgives all sins. People should therefore not despair of the mercy of their Lord however great and many their sins may be. Allaah says that which translates as: "And who despairs of the mercy of his Lord except for those astray?" (Al-Hijr: 56).

At-Tirmidhi and others reported on the authority of Anas ibn Maalik who said, "I heard the Messenger of Allaah Sallallaahu Alayhi wa Sallam saying: "Allaah says, "O son of Adam! As long as you call unto me and seek (forgiveness from) me, I will forgive you for all of the sins that you may commit and I do not care (how many they amount to). O son of Adam! If you come to me with what is almost as much as the earth (in volume) in sins, but you meet me without having associated any partner with Me in worship, I will give you the same amount of forgiveness.' Allaah commanded His Messenger Sallallaahu Alayhi wa Sallam "€œ even though he is the most pious of mankind - to be sincere in religion and frequently seek for forgiveness when He said that which translates to: "So know (O Muhammad) that their is no deity except Allaah and ask forgiveness for your sin and for the believing men and believing women." (Muhammad: 19).

The Messenger of Allaah Sallallaahu Alayhi wa Sallam, therefore used to seek Allaah's forgiveness frequently during the day and night and said of himself, "I swear by Allaah, I seek Allaah's forgiveness and repent to Him seventy times a day.' (Bukhaari). read more

COOKING TIP
If you're feeling adventuresome, try replacing herbs and spices called  for in recipes with something different! Marjoram instead of oregano,  savory instead of thyme, cilantro instead of parsley,  anise seed instead of fennel, etc.
