allah is my hope

[Al-Ghafur/ The Forgiver and Hider of Faults/ The All Forgiving]
This divine name appears many times in the Qur'ān, pointing to Allah’s kindness, love and mercy which He keeps showering upon his servants. We should not doubt, and rather have conviction that He may forgive our sins out of His mercy. However, we should attempt to avoid sinning as much as we can. This divine name should make us steady on the right path, believing that He will forgive our past misdeeds. “Verily, Allah is the Most-Forgiving, Very-Merciful.” ‎﴾‬‎2.173﴿‬
Allah’s forgiveness is unlimited. “Tell my servants that I am the Most-Forgiving, The Merciful.” ‎﴾15.49‬‎﴿‬
Knowing this, believers serve Allah with hope in their hearts and not despair. “O My servants, you sin by night and by day, and I forgive all sins, so seek forgiveness of Me and I shall forgive you.” [Muslim]
So, if one commits a sin, one should turn to his Lord in humility and repentance, and ask Him sincerely for forgiveness. “By the One in Whose hand is my soul, if you did not commit sin Allaah would do away with you and bring people who would commit sin then pray for forgiveness.” [Narrated by Muslim, 2749]
The best way to pray for forgiveness is to say:
‎اللَّهُمَّ أَنْتَ رَبِّي لا إِلَهَ إِلا أَنْتَ خَلَقْتَنِي وَأَنَا عَبْدُكَ وَأَنَا عَلَى عَهْدِكَ وَوَعْدِكَمَا اسْتَطَعْتُ أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ شَرِّ مَا صَنَعْتُ أَبُوءُ لَكَ بِنِعْمَتِكَ عَلَيَّ وَأَبُوءُ لَكَ بِذَنْبِي فَاغْفِرْ لِي فَإِنَّهُ لا يَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوبَ إِلا أَنْتَ
Allahumma anta Rabbi la ilaha illa anta, Anta Khalaqtani wa ana abduka, wa ana ‘ala ahdika wa wa'dika mastata'tu, A'udhu bika min Sharri ma sana'tu, abu'u Laka bini'matika 'alaiya, wa Abu Laka bidhanbi faghfirli innahu la yaghfiru adhdhunuba illa anta
(O Allah! You are my Lord! None has the right to be worshipped but You. You created me and I am Your slave, and I am faithful to my covenant and my promise as much as I can. I seek refuge with You from all the evil I have done. I acknowledge before You all the blessings You have bestowed upon me, and I confess to You all my sins. So I entreat You to forgive my sins, for nobody can forgive sins except You.)

[Al-Wakil/The trustee/The Excellent Guardian]
“Allah suffices as a Disposer [of affairs].” ‎﴾‬‎4.81﴿‬
Allah is All-good and All-powerful; all our affairs are best entrusted to His care, for He is the best Guardian of all interests “In Allah let the believers put all their trust.” ‎﴾3.160‬‎﴿‬‎
Putting one’s trust in Allah means that one should take all possible precautions and then leave the results in the hands of Allah, who knows the working of events better than any human mind can conceive of. “And when you have decided, then rely upon Allah. Indeed, Allah loves those who rely [upon Him].” ‎﴾‬‎3‬‎‎.‬‎1‬‎5‬‎9‬‎﴿‬ A true believer, like the Prophets, realises that the fruition of his efforts comes only from Allah, therefore He turns to no one else for that. “Sufficient for us is Allah , and [He is] the best Disposer of affairs."‎﴾‬‎3‬‎.‬‎1‬‎7‬‎3‬‎﴿‬ The Prophet ‎ﷺ‎‬‎ recommended the following dua before sleeping: "O Allah, I surrender myself to You and entrust my affair to You, with hope in You and fear of You. There is no resort and no deliverer (from hardship but You). I affirm my faith in the Book which You revealed and in the Messengers whom You sent.” (Sahih Muslim : Book 48, Hadith 77) ‎اللَّهُمَّ أَسْلَمْتُ نَفْسِي إِلَيْكَ وَوَجَّهْتُ وَجْهِي إِلَيْكَ وَأَلْجَأْتُ ظَهْرِي إِلَيْكَ وَفَوَّضْتُ أَمْرِي إِلَيْكَ رَغْبَةً وَرَهْبَةً إِلَيْكَ لاَ مَلْجَأَ وَلاَ مَنْجَا مِنْكَ إِلاَّ إِلَيْكَ آمَنْتُ بِكِتَابِكَ الَّذِي أَنْزَلْتَ وَبِرَسُولِكَ الَّذِي أَرْسَلْتَ ‏.‏ فَإِنْ مَاتَ مَاتَ عَلَى الْفِطْرَةِ ‏"
To take Allah as the only Guardian is part of our belief in Allah, as is clear from this verse “(O Prophet, tell them) "He is the Most Merciful; we have believed in Him, and upon Him we have relied.” ‎﴾‬‎6‬‎7‬‎.‬‎2‬‎9‬‎﴿‬ Tawakkul (having trust in Allah) is a highly desirable and rewarding trait which all of us should try to develop for it reinforces our belief in the One true God.❤️

i made a lot of mistakes in my life, how can I accept them and live with them

as-Salaam Alaykum

Always focus on Allah’s mercy. Please repent and move on with your life. Every day is a new beginning and an opportunity to please Allah.

Once a man came into the Mosque of the Prophet (salallahu alayhi wa sallam) lamenting over his sins. The man was so overcome and saddened by his state that the Prophet (salallahu alayhi wa sallam) said to him, “Say this:

اللهم مغفرتك أوسع من ذنوبي ورحمتك أرجى عندي من عملي

Allahuma maghfiratoka awsaa’ min thonoobi Wa rahmatoka arja ‘andey min ‘amaley

Oh Allah, your forgiveness is greater than my sins and my hope in Your mercy is greater to me than my actions”

The man said this and the Prophet (salallahu alayhi wa sallam) said to him, “Say it again.” The man repeated it then the Prophet said to him, “Say it again.” The man did it and the Prophet (salallahu alayhi wa sallam) said to him, “Arise for, indeed, Allah has forgiven you.”

-Muslim

You may have committed the worst sin ever - unimaginably evil and disgusting. But you want to repent and rectify your affairs. Don’t be ashamed to turn to your Creator. Don’t give in to Shaytaan when he tells you that there is no hope for you, because there is hope and Allah promises it. “O My servants who have transgressed against themselves [by sinning], do not despair of the mercy of Allah . Indeed, Allah forgives all sins. [39:53] Whose promise is better than that of Allah?

anonymous asked:

i'm not a revert but i've been practicing a lot more but the thing that is stopping me are my past sins. also many people know about them and i know i probably won't be forgiven by Allah. what should i do?

as-Salaam Alaykum

Holy Qur'an, az-Zumar 53: Say: “(Allah gives you hope): O My servants who have been wasteful (of their Allah-given opportunities and faculties) against (the good of) their own souls! Do not despair of Allah’s Mercy. Surely Allah forgives all sins. He is indeed the All-Forgiving, the All-Compassionate. ’

Allah (swt) said:

“My servant has committed a sin and has known that he has a Lord who forgives sins and punishes for sins. Do what you wish, for I have forgiven you.” (Muslim)

Allah says:

“Even if your sins reached up to the clouds in the sky, I would forgive you.” (Tirmidhi)

Allah says:

Holy Qur'an, Yusuf 87: For none ever despairs of Allah’s Mercy, except people who disbelieve in Him. ”

Please repent! Turn to Allah. Do good and righteous deeds and never despair Allah’s Mercy. Allah promises to forgive!

And Allah knows best

I am kind of-ish triggered because my friends mentioned my birthday and idk wow so much of my life has gone by and so many things I haven’t done and can’t do in the near future either and it’s just sad

My edit
Never lose hope in Allah and His mercy. Make dua, repent today and never fear that your sins are greater than Allahs mercy because Allah forgives those who are sincere even if the sins reached the skies. May Allah forgive us all and guide us to the straight path, ameen.

Flying out to DC for the umaa conf on Friday Insha Allah.  Been spending some time preparing my recitations and I really hope they go as planned Insha Allah. Really excited.  

anonymous asked:

I committed a sin again. I didn't mean to do it, it just happened. I feel like a huge block is preventing me from going back to Allah. I feel too ashamed and embarrassed to repent. I feel like Allah doesn't like me anymore and that islam isn't (1)

(2) For sinners like me since I keep messing up. I just hate myself for this

Salam Alaykum :)

Thank you for getting in touch.

Lets see how Allah and Prophet (saw) will respond to your message:

Anas (ra) narrated that Allah’s Messenger (saw) said :“All the sons of Adam are sinners, but the best of sinners are those who repent often.” (At·Tirmidhi and Ibn Majah)

Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “By Him in whose hand is my soul, if you did not sin Allah would replace you with people who would sin and they would seek the forgiveness of Allah and He would forgive them.” (Sahih Muslim 2749)

Allah (swt) says:

Say: “(God gives you hope): O My servants who have been wasteful (of their God-given opportunities and faculties) against (the good of) their own souls! Do not despair of God’s Mercy. Surely God forgives all sins. He is indeed the All-Forgiving, the All-Compassionate. ’ (Holy Qur'an, az-Zumar 53)

Also:

In a Hadith Qudsi (found in Muslim and other places) Allah says:

A servant [of God’s] committed a sin and said: “O God, forgive me my sin.”

And He (glorified and exalted be He) said:

“My servant has committed a sin and has known that he has a Lord who forgives sins and punishes for them.”

Then he sinned again and said: “O Lord, forgive me my sin.”

And He (glorified and exalted be He) said:

“My servant has committed a sin and has known that he has a Lord who forgives sins and punishes for them.”

Then he sinned again and said: “O Lord, forgive me my sin.”

And He (glorified and exalted be He) said:

My servant has committed a sin and has known that he has a Lord who forgives sins and punishes for sins. Do what you wish, for I have forgiven you.”

Moreover;

Allah underlines this in a Hadith Qudsi from Tirmidhi, when He says:

“Even if your sins reached up to the clouds in the sky, I would forgive you.”

And then there is this report found in Ibn Rajab’s Jami’ Al-Ulum:

It was said to [The Prophet’s grandson] Al-Hassan:

“Is not the servant [of God] ashamed of sinning and then repenting, and then sinning again and then again repenting?”

He [Al-Hassan] said: “Satan wants exactly that. Never stop making repentance.”


So dear anon; please do not loose hope in the mercy of Allah. Islam is EXACLY for people like you and me who sin all the time and knock on the door of Allah for forgiveness! :)

Please keep me updated how you are doing insha'Allah


And Allah knows best
