He is the One that accepts
Repentance from His Servants
And forgives sins:
And He knows all
That you do.
And He listens to
Those who believe and
Do deeds of righteousness,
And gives them increase
Of His Bounty: but
For the Unbelievers there is
A terrrible Penalty
* * * * *
Happens to you, is because
Of the things your hands
Have wrought, and for many
(Of them) He grants forgiveness.
Nor can you frustrate (aught)
(Fleeing) through the earth;
Nor have you, besides Allah,
Anyone to protect or to help.
* * * * *
Whatever the sin, Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala's Mercy is open to sincere Repentance, at all times, until the decree of condemnation issues. To the prayers of the righteous He listens, and He gives them of His Bounty beyond their deserts. Every time they do a little good, they are increased in their goodness. Every right impulse or aspiration is strengthened and leads to progressive spiritual advancement.
It may be objected that all prayers, even of good people, are not answered. The reply is:
1.that even everyone who is good does not necessarily know what is best for him, for the values in this life are curiously distorted;
2.on account of their want of knowledge, if
everyone got all he asked for, there would be chaos and confusion,
and "transgression beyond bounds through the earth". for
the different interests are so intermingled and balanced that
some measure must be observed in people's wishes.
3.that all evil, all sorrow, all pain and affliction, are
things not normal, things twisted from the pure and holy nature as created by Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala's hands. As far as man is concerned, his misfotunes are but the consequences of the things he has done. He must bear personal responsibilty for them and not throw the blame of on others.
Every evil deed or word or thought must have its evil consequences: but if Allah forgives anything - and He forgives much - - let no one imagine that he has defeated - or can defeat - Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala's Will or Plan.
The only help or protection that is possible is from Allah Subhanahu wa
Ta'ala. This measure is best supplied by the watchful care of Allah
Subhanahu wa Ta'ala and His Perfect Knowledge of all our real needs. (Ref: Abdulla Yusuf Ali - May Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala Bless his soul)
May Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala Bless and Grant you
love, peace, kindness, happiness and harmony in your life.
