I’m absolutely fascinated by the Rahma of al-Quddus! I find it so incredibly beautiful that despite the fact that you’ve just sinned last night, Allah let’s you wake up the next day and inspire you to do good.
How can we lose hope in the mercy of a Lord, that gives us time to repent before He orders His angels to write down what sin we just committed? Look at this hadith:
Abu Umamah (رضي الله عنه ) narrated the Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said,
“The companion (Angel) on the left lifts his pen for six hours for the Muslim slave that errs or sins. If this slave repents and seeks Allah’s forgiveness for that error or sin, the Angel doesn’t record it. And if the slave doesn’t ask Allah for forgiveness, the Angel records it once”
Collected by At-Tabarani in Kabir (7667), Abu Na’eem in Hilya (6/124), Al-Bayhaqi in Shu’ib (6788). Shaykh Al-Albani graded this hadeeth as being Hasan in Saheehah (1209).
If you find yourself opening up doors for strangers or smiling and giving salams to people you don’t even know or you find yourself removing something harmful from the street then know that all good is from Allah and He inspired you to do good in order for you to suceed in the Akhirah.
Have can you lose hope?
Even after you’ve sinned, rise up again and again and again and again .. And again
Allahumma laka al-Hamd ❤❤❤❤❤
