May Allah (SWT) grant us and all the Marhoomeen Forgiveness and Jannatul Firdaus (Aameen)



Compiled by Moulana Muhammad Mazhar Saheb,
Khalifa of Moulana Shah Abrarul Haq Saheb (RA)

Today, in this age of corruption we are cut off from spiritualism and heading towards secularism. Due to this, we are becoming negligent of virtuous actions and becoming desirous of committing sins. There are thousands of people who claim to be Muslims but who are drowned in sin. They are so engrossed in sin that they do not even imagine repenting. After that their condition becomes such that they feel their repentance cannot be accepted. Whereas Allah says, "He is the one that accepts the repentance of His servants and overlooks sins." Allah is the most noble and merciful. He is the most merciful of those who show mercy. Therefore do not lose hope in His mercy. Continue repenting. If one commits a sin, repent immediately. Moulana Shah Wasiullah Saheb (Rahimahullah) used to recite this couplet:

We have trodden the paths in this way
We fell, we fell and got up and we got up and moved.

The forgiveness of minor sins can be achieved through good actions but the forgiveness of major sins can only be achieved by repentance. It should also be noted that to continue sinning in the hope of being forgiven by repenting before death is the height of foolishness and stupidity. This is because no one knows the future and no one knows when the time of death will approach.

Rasulullah (Sallallahu alahi wasallam) said, "Intelligent is the one who controls his soul and practised for the time after death, while the one who follows his desires and has hope in Allah is foolish." (Tirmizi, vol.2 p.72) Whatever sin one has committed can all be forgiven by repenting. Anas (Radiallahu anhu) states that he heard Rasulullah (Sallallahu alahi wasallam) saying that Allah said, "O son of Adam, as long as you supplicate to me and have hope in Me, I will forgive you whatever the sin be and I will not bother. O son of Adam, if your sins reach the clouds in the sky and you seek forgiveness, I will forgive you and I will not bother. O son of Adam, if you come to Me with so many sins that they fill the earth, and you meet Me without having ascribed partners to Me, I will forgive you with the same great amount of forgiveness." (Tirmizi, vol. 2 p. 194)

A farmer went to a big city to see the sights. He asked the hotel's clerk about the times of meals.

"Breakfast is served from 7 to 11, dinner from 12 to 3, and supper from 6 to 8," explained the clerk.

"Look here," inquired the farmer in surprise, "when am I going to get time to see the city?"
