Surah Hud, Verse 90:
وَاسْتَغْفِرُوا رَبَّكُمْ ثُمَّ تُوبُوا إِلَيْهِ إِنَّ رَبِّي رَحِيمٌ وَدُودٌ
“And ask forgiveness of your Lord and turn unto Him in repentance. Verily, my Lord is Most Merciful, Most Loving.”
“…then ask forgiveness of Him and turn to Him in repentance. Certainly, my Lord is Near (to all by His Knowledge), Responsive.” [11:6]
Our Lord calls Himself the Most Merciful & Loving towards His slaves. Likewise, He is near and responsive to our supplications. Subhanallah.
In yesterdays Qur’anic Gems, we talked about the 2 deceptions that draw us away from the path of Allah: this life & satan. And how is it about time we become wise & turn our lives around.
who is she out there that wants to repent to her Lord
And start wearing the hijab?
End that haram relationship?
Start being consistent in her prayer?
Who is she that needs to run away from a life of sin & return to the straight path?
Verily, to her He is Most Merciful, Most Loving & will no doubt, respond to her
“Allah has greater joy at the repentance of his slave when he turns towards Him than the one who lost his camel in a desert land and finds it (unexpectedly). [Muslim]
Indeed, Allah accepts repentance so let’s turn our lives around this ramadan first & foremost, by repenting to Him.
We implore Allah to gift us with His ‘Gems’ and make of those who live with the whole Qur’an, in heart and in mind, ameen.
