Forgive me father for I have sinned,
I have loved a woman more desperately than I have loved God. I have looked to a woman more reverently than I have the sky. There, in the sulk of her bottom lip, I find myself talking about a heaven that only exists when she is looking at me,
father she has not been forged between the dip of my teeth, she is not my rib, or my left side, she is my entire stomach, she is my spine.
I have been searching for prayer, father but I have found that I can only say her name
Dear God, let me have her
Dear God, let her rest with me
Dear God, let the sky turn red from how we burn
The plum tree in our back garden has withered because I have not seen the sun for five days. I have been worshipping at the cradle of her hips
father, she has cleansed me with those hands and those eyes, I do not know how to turn unless it is towards her, I do not know where to go except in her direction.
—  Azra.T “Take Me to Church”

A woman came to Prophet Musa عليه السلام and said, “I committed a grave sin. Please pray to Allah that He forgives me.”
Prophet Musa: “What did you do?”
Woman: “I committed Zina and later gave birth to a boy whom I killed.”
Prophet Musa: “Go away from here, you wicked woman, lest a fire from Heaven destroys us all because of your sin!”

The woman left broken-hearted.­ Then Angel Jibril descended and asked, “O Musa, why have you turned away a repentant woman? Have you not found anyone worse than her?”
Prophet Musa: “Who can be worse than her?”
Angel Jibril: “The one who abandons #SALAH intentionally and persistently.”

If our greatest need had been information,
God would have sent us an educator.
If our greatest need had been technology,
God would have sent us a scientist.
If our greatest need had been money,
God would have sent us an economist.
If our greatest need had been pleasure,
God would have sent us an entertainer.
But our greatest need was forgiveness,
so God sent us a Saviour.

Father in Heaven,
I need You in my life. Forgive me for going my own way without acknowledging You. Thank you that You sent Jesus to die for my sins. Thank you that You forgive me. Cleanse my heart and come into my life today. Please help me to grasp Your ways so I can walk securely in them even in insecure places. I need Your perspective in my life.
Guide me in Your truth, Lord God. You are my Savior, my Rescuer and my Redeemer. Today I put my trust in You. Thank you that You will give me the hope and help and peace I need in my journey through life. Thank you that You are my Savior.
In Jesus’ mighty name I pray, amen.

Tomorrow is the day of ‘Arafah, the holiest day in Islam. The day on which Allah revealed:

“This day I have perfected for you your religion and completed My favor upon you and have approved for you Islam as religion.” (Quran 5:3)

The day about which The Prophet (sallAllahu a'laihi wa sallam) said:

“On this day, Allah, the most Exalted, descends to the nearest heaven, and He is proud of His servants (performing Hajj) on the earth and says to those in heavens, look at My servants, they have come from far and near, with hair disheveled and faces covered with dust, to seek my Mercy. Even if their sins are as much the sand or the froth of the sea, I shall forgive them.”

What should we do?

Fast"Fasting on the Day of 'Arafah expiates the sins of the past year and the coming year.“ (Muslim)

Make du'a 

“The most excellent dua is the dua on the Day of 'Arafah…” (Muwatta)

Do dhikr

“…the best of what I and the prophets before me have said, is 'There is nothing that deserves to be worshiped in truth except Allaah, He is Alone and has no partner, to Him belongs the dominion and to Him belongs all praise, and He is All-Powerful over all things.’” (Muwatta)

لا إله إلا الله وحده لا شريك له ، له الملك ، وله الحمد ، وهو على كل شيء قدير

Repent and ask for forgiveness

“There is no day on which Allah frees people from the Fire more so than on the day of 'Arafah. He comes close to those (people standing on 'Arafah), and then He reveals before His Angels saying, ‘What are these people seeking.” (Muslim)

General good deeds like giving charity, praying extra nawafil, reciting Quran, etc.

May Allah accept all of our deeds, may He forgive all of our sins, may He accept all of the Hajj, and grant us all the highest level of paradise. Ameen.

Messenger of Allah (salallahu alayhi wa sallam) said, Allah, the Exalted, has said: ‘O son of adam, I forgive you as long as you pray to Me and hope for My forgiveness, whatever sins you have committed. O son of 'Adam, I do not care if your sins reach the height of the heaven, then you ask for my forgiveness, I would forgive you. O son of 'Adam, if you come to Me with an earth load of sins, and meet Me associating nothing to Me, I would match it with an earthload of forgiveness.
—  Riyad as-Salihin, The Book of Miscellany, Book 1, Hadith 442
A savior stands in the doorway. I fear forgiveness.

Heaven comes home and knocks on an open door.

                   I hide among taxidermy sins, stuffing

my own limbs with excelsior in the dark. I stand in the corner of the

room. Where the paint chips, wallpaper 

looks like condemnation. Saviors have many

false faces - mine have looked like lovers

                       and felt like fists. 

                                                     I pick at

                                                    the scabs of concealment

                                until I see a pattern.

The world is a game of hide-and-seek.

Culture has given me the skills

             to do both at the same time.

O Allah, to You be praise, You are the Light of the heavens and earth and whoever is in them.

To You be praise, You are the Sustainer of the Heavens and the earth and whoever is in them.

To You be praise, You are the Sovereign of the heavens and earth and whoever is in them. To You be praise;

You are True, Your promise is true, Paradise is true, Hell is true, the Hour is true, the Prophets are true and Muhammad is true.

To You have I submitted, in You I put my trust and in You I have believed
And with Your help I argue [with my opponents, the non-believers], and I take You as a judge [to judge between us].

Forgive me my past and future sins and those that I commit openly.

You are the One who puts [some people] back and bring [others] forward.

There is no God but You and there is no power and no strength except with Allah

[Al-Ghaffar/The Most Forgiving
Out of His tremendous mercy, Allah keeps overlooking and forgiving our sins. As our deliverance in the Afterlife is subject upon His forgiveness, we must keep seeking His forgiveness. We should follow, in respect of the Prophet’s example who invoked Allah’s forgiveness:
‎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.)
[Sahih al-Bukhari; 8,75,318, At-Tirmidhi; 3393, An-Nasa'i; 5522, Ahmad; 16662]
Allah forgives the sins, small and big, of His worshippers. “Surely I am the Most-Forgiving for him who repents and believes and acts righteously, then follows the right path.” ‎﴾20.82‬‎﴿‬
“Lord of the heavens and earth, and of all that lies between them, the Almighty, the All-Forgiving.” ‎﴾38.66‬‎﴿‬
Allah can punish people and display their shameful doings; but because of their good deeds, He does not betray them.
Our Prophet Muhammad (‎ﷺ‎‬) said: “Allah, praise be to Him, brings His servant close and hides him and asks him: ‘Do you know such and such sins? The servant says, ‘Yes, my Lord.’ And He [Allah] asks him again until he admits all his sins. Allah then says, ‘I have concealed them in your life and today I forgive them.’ And he is given the book of his good deeds” (related by Al-Bukhari and Muslim).

anonymous asked:

It is possible to be in close contact with Christ, and with Christians, and yet not be saved and this is frightening because I don't think I can comfortably have any assurance. Luke 13:23-27 talk about it and there will be a number of people who look like Christians, who associate with Christians, and who even think they are Christians, who will be shocked to learn that they are not saved at the return of our Lord.

Hello there,

I want to start off by saying that having close contact with Christians is not a requirement of salvation nor is it an indicator that someone is saved. It’s wonderful to have fellowship with other Christians, but that is not what salvation is dependent upon. Salvation comes from faith in Christ alone. And there are unfortunately individuals who spend lots of time with other Christians yet do not actually know Christ/live their life for Him. So the point you made about being around Christians is correct - it is possible for someone to be in close contact with Christians yet not truly know Christ.

Regarding the other point you brought up about close contact with Christ, if someone has called upon Christ and has been born again, then they are saved. I like the outline that’s referred to the ABC’s of salvation that describes in a really straightforward way what it means to be born again. It has nothing to do with our own works or merit - Ephesians assures us of the truth that eternal life is a gift from the Father received through faith in Christ.

Your worries about this are definitely not uncommon.. I think one of the most common asks I receive is people fearing they are a “fake Christian” or unsaved but just don’t realize it. Verses like the one you mentioned from Luke 13 stir a lot of fear, I think because the full context of the verses is not being fully realized. Many seem to understand this to mean that you can have truly accepted Christ, yet still not be saved. This is not true! In the context of these verses, Jesus is referring to individuals who claim faith in Him, yet do not actually know Him. Many people claim to have faith in Christ, yet their actions and lives do not reflect this claim. Many continue to live in unrepentant sin and do not see anything wrong with this. Many individuals think it’s okay to live how they wish, erroneously believing that going to church once a week is all it means to be a follower of Christ. There’s a difference between knowing about God/recognizing that He exists versus acknowledging one’s sins/need of a Savior, accepting/desiring Christ’s forgiveness, and having a relationship with Him. As the Word tells us, even demons acknowledge God’s existence. Saying that God is real yet still choosing sin, not actually applying His Word to one’s life, and not producing fruit indicative of a heart transformed by Christ are warning signs that a person does not actually know Christ.

When I talk or think about this topic, I think of the contrast between myself before and after I was born again. Before I was born again, I identified as a Catholic and I gladly told people that I was Catholic and believed in God. I went to church once a week. And I really thought that was all it was about. I was under the impression that anyone who merely said “I believe God exists” went to heaven. I knew nothing about Christ, and I most certainly didn’t apply His Word to my life. I didn’t even read His Word back then and I was just going through the motions. I was spiritually dead - I had no relationship with Christ, embraced various types of sin without batting an eye, and certainly did not ask Christ to forgive me of my sins. But if you had asked me back then, I would have told you I believed I was going to heaven. Now I realize that I was not saved back then and knew nothing about Him at all. Thinking back on that time before I knew Him, I am very grateful that He revealed Himself to me. It took a really painful time in my life to make that happen, and sometimes it scares me a little to wonder where I would be right now if that painful time didn’t happen to make me realize my need for Him.

Going into more detail about the type of individuals Jesus was referring to in the verses you mentioned, these were people who claimed to be Christians, taught in His name, and even performed miracles. Yet they did not actually belong to Him or know Him. Since they did not truly know Him and were not actually living for Him, these actions were actually done for their own glory - not His. So once they meet Him on Judgment Day, they will be turned away because salvation cannot be earned by actions such as performing miracles, preaching the Gospel, or merely wearing the label of Christian. Salvation comes from faith in Christ and truly seeking Him for the forgiveness of one’s sins. This isn’t a case of salvation loss - these individuals were never saved because they never actually knew Him to begin with. You can read more discussion about this in this article if you’re interested.

It is a concept that’s scary and I most certainly do understand why it causes you concern and discomfort. But I think the fact that you are concerned about it says something about your heart. If you didn’t love Him and didn’t desire to be with Him, I don’t think you would be worried about being apart from Him. You should also realize that God does not want us to live in constant doubt and fear that we aren’t saved. He wants us to believe in the power of the finished work of the cross. The Word offers us assurance with regards to salvation through faith in Christ:

“Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life. I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life.” - 1 John 5:12-13


“Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life.” - John 5:24


“For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” - Romans 8:38-39


Keep pursuing Christ and strengthening your relationship with Him. If there is a weakness with sin you are struggling with, seek Him for the guidance and strength you need to resist and overcome it. He will provide for you in your moments of need!

I hope this helped to address your concerns. If you need to discuss this further, let me know!

father, i have sinned,
for i have loved a woman without fear,
loved her with all the fire of hell
burning inside me;
i loved a woman with open palms,
open legs,
rolling hips,
and no apology.

father, i have sinned,
for i have shunned your churches
and scorned your priests,
i have disgraced adam and eve
with my poisonous apple;
sweeter than your manna
and freer than your garden,
my own personal genesis.

father, i have sinned,
but you will not find me on my knees,
you will find me on my feet,
you will find my hand in hers;
i have loved her with defiance,
i have screamed from lips
that drip with love and lust:
i worship at her altar.

father, i have sinned,
and i do not ask forgiveness.

How to repent in islam? Do Allah forgive us who made lots of sins? Please help me!!

Salam Elikum 

I will let the Quran and Hadith speak:

Quran

‘And those who, when they commit an immorality or wrong themselves [by transgression], remember Allah and seek forgiveness for their sins - and who can forgive sins except Allah ? - and [who] do not persist in what they have done while they know.’ (3:135)

‘Whether you reveal a good act or keep it hidden, or pardon an evil act, Allah is Ever-Pardoning, All-Powerful’ (4: 149)

‘Except those who repent and believe and do righteous deeds; for those, God will change their sins into good deeds, and God is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.’ (25:70)

‘O My slaves who have transgressed against themselves (by committing evil deeds and sins)!  Despair not of the Mercy of God: verily, God forgives all sins. Truly He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.’ (39:53)

‘And it is He who accepts repentance from his servants and pardons misdeeds, and He knows what you do’ (42:25)

‘… But Allah is Ever-Pardoning, Ever-Forgiving’ (58:2)

Hadith

The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “By the One in Whose Hand my soul is! If you do not commit sins, Allah would replace you with a people who would commit sins and seek forgiveness from Allah; and Allah will certainly forgive them.” (Muslim)

The Prophet ﷺ said: “Allah, Blessed and Exalted is He, says, ‘O son of Adam, as long as you call on Me, I shall forgive you of what you have done, and think nothing of it. O son of Adam, even if your sins were to reach up to the clouds in the sky, and then you were to ask for My forgiveness, I would forgive you and think nothing of it. O son of Adam, even if you were to come to Me with sins nearly as great as the earth, and then you were to meet Me after death, not worshipping anything besides Me, I would bring you forgiveness nearly as great as the earth.’” (Tirmidhi)

the Prophet ﷺ said: “A person committed a sin and said: ‘My Lord, I have sinned; forgive me.’ His Lord said: ‘Is My slave acknowledging that he has a Lord Who forgives sins and punishes for them? I have forgiven My slave.’ Then as much time passed as Allah willed, then he committed a sin and said, ‘My Lord, I have sinned; forgive me.’ His Lord said: ‘Is My slave acknowledging that he has a Lord Who forgives sins and punishes for them? I have forgiven My slave.’ Then as much time passed as Allah willed, then he committed a sin and said, ‘My Lord, I have sinned; forgive me.’ His Lord said: ‘Is My slave acknowledging that he has a Lord Who forgives sins and punishes for them? I have forgiven My slave,’ – three times…” (al-Bukhari, Muslim)

Abu Hurairah reports that the Messenger of Allah (saws) said: “Our Lord Descends to the lowest heaven during the last third of the night, inquiring: `Who will call on Me so that I may respond to him? Who is asking something of Me so I may give it to him? Who is asking for My forgiveness so I may forgive him?” (Bukhari and Muslim)

The Prophet ﷺ said: “Allah, the Almighty, says: ‘Whosoever does a good deed, will have (reward) ten times like it and I add more; and whosoever does an evil, will have the punishment like it or I will forgive (him); and whosoever approaches Me by one span, I will approach him by one cubit; and whosoever approaches Me by one cubit, I approach him by one fathom, and whosoever comes to Me walking, I go to him running; and whosoever meets Me with an earth-load of sins without associating anything with Me, I meet him with forgiveness like that” (Muslim).

The Prophet ﷺ said: “The devil said to his Lord, ‘By Your Glory and Majesty! As long as the children of Adam exist on earth, I shall continuously misguide them.’ Allah replied, ‘By My Glory and Majesty! As long as they seek My forgiveness, I will continue to forgive them.’” (Musnad Ahmad and Sahih) (find a commentary on this hadith here: https://m.facebook.com/hadithaday.org/posts/709793852381635)

Yes, Allah SWT forgives all sins. He will forgive yours too in’Sha’Allah. You just have to ask.

And when My servants ask you, [O Muhammad], concerning Me - indeed I am near. I respond to the invocation of the supplicant when he calls upon Me. So let them respond to Me [by obedience] and believe in Me that they may be [rightly] guided. (2:186)

Quick Tip for Everyday: The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “He who says: ‘Astaghfir ullah-alladhi la ilaha illa Huwal-Haiyul-Qayyumu, wa atubu ilaihi (I seek the forgiveness of Allah, there is no true god except Allah, the Ever-Living, the Self- Subsisting, and I turn to Him in repentance),’ his sins will be forgiven even if he should have run away from the battlefield (while he was engaged in fighting for the Cause of Allah).”  [Abu Dawud, At-Tirmidhi and Al-Hakim (on conditions of Al-Bukhari and Muslim for accepting Hadith)].

Sorry for the late reply. Hope I was able to help you. You can make the most of it since its Ramadan right now, the month of mercy and forgiveness. : )

“Whoever fasts Ramadan out of Iman and seeking Allah’s reward then his past and future sins are forgiven.” (Hasan, Ahmad)
