O Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ! I repent

Dear Islamic brothers! Currently, there are a number of Muslims when they are requested to stop sinning, make repentance and act upon Shar’i commandments, they respond in this way, ‘We have yet to live plenty of years.’

About the man who is heedless of death, indulged in desires and delaying repentance, Imam Ghazali رَحْمَةُ اللّٰەِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه said: Such type of person should be informed that your example is like a man when he is asked to uproot such and such tree, he would say, ‘This tree is strong enough and I am so weak, it is beyond my capacity to do it now, however, I will do it next year’. Then it is asked to such a foolish person, ‘Will this tree not become stronger next year and will your weakness not increase further?’ Same is the condition of the tree of desires which keeps getting stronger day by day, whereas that person has already gotten indulged in desires and pleasure badly and it is for the reason, he consistently follows his carnal desires; resultantly, due to being bound by desires, it becomes impossible for him to go against them. So, O human! Uproot the tree of desires and lusts as quickly as you can because it is beneficial for you. (Kimiya-e-Sa’adat, vol. 2, pp. 773)

O devotees of Rasool! This is a truth that when a situation starts getting worse, one realizes his mistakes. Fortunate is the Muslim who does not commit sin and in case he commits [any sin], he makes repentance in the court of his Beloved Rab عَزَّوَجَلَّ. Read the benefits of making repentance:

Benefit of making repentance

The Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰەُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم said, ‘The one who makes repentance is like the one who has not committed a sin.’ (Ibn Majah, vol. 4, pp. 491, Hadees 4250)

Sayyidi A’la Hadrat Imam Ahmad Raza Khan رَحْمَةُ اللّٰەِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه said, ‘There is no sin even including [the act of] polytheism and disbelief which exists after true repentance.’ (Fatawa Razawiyyah, vol. 21, pp. 121)

We should try our best to refrain ourselves from committing sins, if it is committed even then, one should not delay in making repentance. One method of repentance has been mentioned in the following blessed Hadees:

Salat-ut-Taubah

The Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰەُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم said, ‘The person who commits any sin then performs two Rak’aat [Salah] after making Wudu properly and repents of his sins, Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ forgives his sins.’ (Sunan Kubra, vol. 6, pp. 109, Hadees 10247)

Remember! The complete repentance of a person is that he is ashamed of his past sins and at present he stops committing those sins and pledges not to commit them in the future (when repenting of the acts of violating the rights of Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ and the rights of people), he should also fulfil the rights. (Tafseer Na’eemi, vol. 1, pp. 266)

The above-mentioned Salah is mentioned in the blessed Hadees and is called ‘Salat-ut-Taubah’. While persuading people to perform Salat-ut-Taubah, Ameer-e-Ahl-e-Sunnat ‘Allamah Muhammad Ilyas Attar Qaadiri دَامَتْ بَرَكَاتُـهُمُ الْعَالِيَـه has stated in Madani In’aam no. 16:

“Today, did you offer Salat-ut-Taubah at least once (preferably before going to bed) and repent of the sins committed today as well as in the past? Further, in case some sin gets committed مَعَاذَ اللّٰە, did you repent instantly and vow never to commit that sin again in future?”

Dear Islamic brothers! Make the practice of acting upon the Madani In’amaat bestowed by Shaykh-e-Tareeqat, Ameer-e-Ahl-e-Sunnat دَامَتْ بَرَكَاتُـهُمُ الْعَالِيَـه as part of your life, اِنْ شَـآءَ اللّٰە you will receive great help in repenting of your sins and becoming a virtuous person.

اٰمِيۡن   بِجَاهِ   النَّبِيِّ  الۡاَمِيۡن   صَلَّى  اللّٰهُ تَعَالٰى  عَلَيۡهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم
