PostSubject: Contemplate...then Repent   Sun Feb 27, 2011 4:58 pm

Shaykh Waseeuallah 'Abbaas


In the name of Allaah, the Most Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy. Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa baraakaatuh.

Noble reader, let us consider some of the verses of the Book of Allaah (the Majestic and Exalted):

*Contemplate the saying of Allaah,

{...they are the ones cursed by Allaah and cursed by those who curse.} [2:159]

He then said after this, ‘Except those who repent...’

*Contemplate the saying of Allaah (the Most Exalted),

{They will abide therein (Hell). Neither will their torment be lightened, nor will it be delayed or postponed.} [03:88]

He said after this, ‘Except those who repent...’

*Contemplate the saying of Allaah (the Majestic and Exalted),

{Verily, the hypocrites will be in the lowest depths of the Fire; no helper will you find for them.} [04:145]

After this He said, ‘except those who repent...’

*Contemplate the saying of Allaah (the Majestic and Exalted),

{...and a great torment is for them in the Hereafter.} [05:33]

Also contemplate the saying of Allaah (the Majestic and Exalted),

{Surely, disbelievers are those who said: Allaah is the third of the three (in a Trinity)} [05:73]

He then said after this, ‘Will they not repent to Allaah’

*Contemplate the saying of Allaah (the Majestic and Exalted),

{…and whoever does this shall receive the punishment.}[25:68]

He said after this, ‘Except he who repents...’

*Contemplate the saying of Allaah,

{So they will be thrown in Hell.} [19:59]

He then said after it, ‘except he who is repentant’

*Contemplate the saying of Allaah (the Majestic and Exalted),

{...and that My torment is indeed the most painful torment.}[15:50]

He said before it, ‘Truly, I am the Oft-Forgiving, the Most-Merciful.’

*Contemplate the saying of Allaah (the Majestic and Exalted),

{[They] will have the torment of Hell, and they will have the punishment of the burning Fire.} [85:10]

He said before it, ‘...and then they do not turn in repentance, (to Allaah).’

Great Verses

Allaah (the Glorified and the Most High) said,

{...but whosoever repents after his crime and does righteous good deeds, then verily Allaah will pardon him.} [05:39]

{...and I am indeed Forgiving to him who repents, believes and does righteous good deeds; and then remains constant in doing them.} [20:82]

{...and ask forgiveness of your Lord and turn unto Him in repentance. Verily, my Lord is Most Merciful, Most Loving.}[11:90]

{Truly, Allaah loves those who turn unto Him in repentance}[02:222]

{O you who believe! Turn to Allaah with sincere repentance.}[66:08]

An Invitation...

If only we would account for ourselves...

If only we would answer the call of our Lord...

My noble brother...

Remember the following conditions of repentance:

1 – To give up the sin immediately.

2 – To regret what has happened in the past.

3 – To have a firm resolve not to go back to the sin.

Glad-Tidings...

- The door to repentance is open.

- You should know that Allaah is pleased with the repentance of His slave.

- The one who repents from a sin is like the one who has no sins remaining.

- Repentance wipes away that which came before it.

- Whoever leaves something for the sake of Allaah, He replaces it with something better for him.

May Allaah guide us all to every type of goodness.

May he bless us with the lofty Al-Firdaws in Paradise.

Ameen.

Do you not want to be from amongst those whom Allaah loves?

Do you not want Allaah to forgive you?
