Book Name:Tauba karnay walon kay liye inamaat
سَعِيۡرٌ لَّلۡعُصَاةِ لَهَا زَفِيۡرٌ وَغَيۡظُ يَوۡمٍ يُؤۡخَذُ بِالنَّوَاصِيۡ
(For sinners there is a thundering Hell, which has thunder and the day they will be caught by the foreheads, they will be visited by wrath of Allah).
فَاِنۡ تَصۡبِرۡ عَلَي النِّيۡرَانِ فَاعۡصِهُ وَ اِلَّا كُنۡ عَنِ الۡعِصۡيَانِ قَاصِيۡ
(If you can bear the fire, then become disobedient. Otherwise, give up disobedience.)
وَفِيۡمَا قَدۡ كَسَبَتۡ مِنَ الۡخَطَايَا رَهَنۡتَ النَّفۡسَ فَاجۡهَدۡ فِي الۡخَلَاصِي
(Whatever sins you have committed, you have trapped your Nafs. Now you must strive for salvation.)
‘Utbah-tul-Ghulam رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه was in an emotional state. After recovering, he asked: O Shaykh! Will the Merciful Creator accept the repentance of a despicable person like me? He رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه replied: Why not? Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ accepts the repentance and remorse of His sinful bondman. Sayyiduna ‘Utbah-tul-Ghulam رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه then made three Du’as:
1. ‘O my Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ! If You have accepted my repentance and forgiven my sins, then grant me such an intellect and memory that whatever I hear from Islamic knowledge and the Holy Quran I can memorise it.
2. O Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ! Bless me with such a pleasant voice which could soften even the heart of a hard-hearted person when he listens to my recitation of the Holy Quran.
3. O Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ! Grant me Halal sustenance and by such means which I cannot even think about.
