Allah Wants to Forgive You


Simplified,  please read the confessions of a sinner n gafel whom Allah has kept alive n given opportunity mashallah 2 understand his misstakes n perform taubah.  Alhamdulillah.
I feel mashallah fortunate knowing lots of people of all ages r dying everyday n probably missed the taubahs opportunity which was either not thot of or kept aside for later.

I wud inshallah never trade for my old life even for the entire duniya or more.  After u hav mashallah committed 2 yor taubah, the satisfaction n peace u feel with your surroundings n within your mind it’s purely priceless n selfish in the sense no matter how much u try 2 explain, others wud never feel it n even if I wanted 2, it can never b shared.


An excellent article mashallah by Maryam.  Every1 shud read it 2 understand the taubah (repetence) mechanisms of Islam. Specially the teenage n young Muslims who have not yet adopted the Islamic code of life.  Otherwise u will find that shaytwan has preoccupied yor life for the duniya with success n greed in such a way that, u haven’t been able 2 keep track of your pure n soft mind has become so hard n black that u allmost can’t bring Allah’s love or warning either, which just with your common sense u appreciated when u were younger.

Thru dilly dallly shytwan has deceived u n u r about 2 loose your iman.

While reading maryams article don’t get too much carried away.  Yes, wot she says r correct, Allah forgives.  Now u need 2 do a soul search whether u r of the catagories of people maryam mentioned or u need further help (meaning yor actions knowingly or unknowingly hav so far been “disastrous”).  The best help will inshallah  b yor soul searching, the.big cracks u find in your iman/amol, take a well determined action plan, perform taubah n repeatedly ask for allahs help.

Bak 2 where we were,  after youth comes the next phase.  U hav grown up n hav matured.  Sometimes u pray sometimes u don’t.  This is as if u r playing with taubah, against which he has given severe warning in the Quran ie, u won’t b forgiven.  When u make future plans u never give priority 2 yor religious obligations.  U think that Ramadan is the best time 2 take vacation n trave whereas Allah n hazrat mohammad (saw) has advised 2 take opportunity in this month 2 pray more for forgiveness n discouraged fm unnecessary hardships that might expose the.risk of neglecting or exposing your ibadots (religious different sorts of prayer(s)) 2 risk of reducing or missing.  Here u r not concerned with the fact not only in Ramadan but during anytime of the yr unnecessary travels r haram bcoz they interfere with salat n Siam.  The punishment for intentional drop of salat, Siam or other farajs is so high even with kaja (replacement exact faraj act for the missed 1s later) that it wud seem hopeless 2 earn allahs satisfactions later.

While allah is the most merciful, he is also the strictest punisher of all.  He dosent like hypocrisy n inconsistency.  That’s y he has repeated in the Quran that no matter how hard or how much good deeds 1 performs but it will b only ALLAH’S SATISFACTION that can earn 1 jannat.  So let’s not try 2 outsmart the smartest of all n all combined (past, present n future), the most wise n all knowing allah but stay simple, always take the middle path as hazrat mohammad has advised n follow Allah n his prophets instructions inshallah 2 b a sure winner.


Allah Wants to Forgive You
by Maryam Amirebrahimi

MANY PEOPLE TALK to me about their struggles; about mistakes they’ve made, sins they’ve committed, addictions they yearn to overcome, relationships they regret. But regardless of the issue, there is one emotion that I’ve noticed threads through almost every struggle with the other: Incessant GUILT.

The guilt of these individuals is rooted in another belief: their inability to forgive themselves for what they did or are still struggling with doing. This is heightened by the fact that many of their families have conditioned them to feel guilty for possibly bringing shame and dishonor to themselves and their families, and by some Muslim communities that do not provide support for the development of individuals—and instead cast shame, judgment and isolation onto those who’ve made mistakes.

Thus, even when they’ve committed a sin years and years ago, they cannot forgive themselves and they do not feel they can find that forgiveness sometimes even from those they love, they feel that God, too, has not or will not forgive them.

But the way that we see ourselves is not necessarily the way that Allah sees us. Our inability to forgive ourselves does not mean that God has not forgiven us!

Accessing Divine Forgiveness

Do you know how easy the terms are for us to get God’s forgiveness? It’s this easy: Realizing what we’ve done is wrong. Sincerely saying sorry. In Arabic, that’s called tawba (“repentance”). It can look like this:

Oh Allah, I’ve really messed up. I am so sorry for doing X and I need Your help never to do it again. My Lord, You forgive all mistakes and sins. Forgive me!!

Let us look at some examples of from Quran and Ḥadîth:

A man once walked into the masjid of the Prophet œ in extreme distress. He shouted, coming to the Prophet œ, saying: “I have sinned, woe to me, I have sinned!” The Prophet œ had the man sit down and taught him to say: “Dear God, Your forgiveness is greater than my sins, and I have more hope in Your mercy than in my own actions, so please forgive me!” The Prophet œ told him to repeat this again and then once again, and then told him: “Stand up: Allah has forgiven your sins.” (Al-Ḥâkim)

The Prophet didn’t tell him: Feel guilty for the next 5 years over what you’ve done, then Allah will forgive you. He œ didn’t tell the man to mentally and emotionally beat himself up every day until the man felt he had adequately punished himself, and then Allah would forgive him.

The Prophet  saw a man, coming with sincerity, with remorse, seeking to fix his relationship with Allah. He œ showed him not only how easy it was to ask for forgiveness, but also how easy it to be forgiven.

How do you know Allah has forgiven you if you have sincerely asked for forgiveness? He has promised you forgiveness. He says:

O my Servants who have transgressed against their souls! Despair not of the Mercy of God: for God forgives all sins, for He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. [Sûrat Al-Zumar, 39:53]

“Bending Over Backwards”

To further impress upon us the point, Allah tells us in a ḥadîth related by the Prophet:

O child of Adam, so long as you call upon Me and ask of Me, I shall forgive you for what you have done, and I shall not mind. O child of Adam, were your sins to reach the clouds of the sky and were you then to ask forgiveness of Me, I would forgive you.
O child of Adam, were you to come to Me with sins as great as the earth, and were you then to face Me ascribing no partners to Me, I would bring you forgiveness nearly as great as it.

Doesn’t it seem obvious? Allah WANTS to forgive us! He WANTS a relationship with us! And not only to forgive us….but to turn the wrong we  have done into something good. Allah tells us:

Except for those who repent, believe and do righteous work. For them Allah will replace their evil deeds with good. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful.  (Sûrat Al-Nisâ’, 4:27].

In other words, this is what that looks like:

The Prophet told us of a man who will come on the Day of Judgment and will be shown his minor sins, his major ones being hidden from him. He cannot deny all the messed up things he had done and he’s worried about seeing even bigger sins he had committed than those he’s being shown. Then it is said: Replace every bad deed with a good one! And the man says, “My Lord! I did other messed up stuff that isn’t written in here!” And the Prophet laughed when he relayed this man’s reaction. (Bukhâri)

This man’s tawbah, his repentance, was so sincere and so complete that Allah replaced his bad deeds with good ones.

Merciful Math

Additionally, Allah is so merciful in the way He keeps us accountable.

When God commanded the two angels on our right and left shoulders to write our actions, God Himself ordered the angel on the left to wait for a period of time to write down what we did wrong just in case we turn back to Him soon after we made that mistake. If we make a mistake and then repent within that time, the angel does not even write down the fact that we sinned.  (Al-Ṭabarâni)

God is just waiting for us to come back to Him, even after we mess up.

But what if you actually did do something messed up? Or thought about it but didn’t do it because you realized you didn’t want to displease Him? The Prophet taught us that Allah has ordered that the good and the bad deeds be written down. Then He explained it clearly how (they are to be written): He who intends to do a good deed but he does not do it, then Allah records it for him as a full good deed, but if he carries out his intention, then Allah the Exalted, writes it down for him as from ten [units] to seven hundred fold, and even more. But if he intends to do an evil act and has not done it, then Allah writes it down with Him as a full good deed, but if he intends it and has done it, Allah writes it down as one bad deed. (Bukhâri and Muslim)

There is seriously no way you can lose when you try to connect with God.

Miss No Opportunity

And then finally, do good deeds to wipe out the bad. This does not need to be some super Muslim attempt to pray all night and fast all day, every day. It is something as simple as asking forgiveness for every believing male and female. The Prophet taught us that if we do so, God will give us a reward for every single believer we just prayed for (Al-Ṭabarâni). Do you know how many of them there are?! You have just raked in over a billion good deeds that will wipe out those bad ones, God willing.

So when we mess up, here’s a formula:

– Realize we made a mistake that we need to stop making.
– Sincerely ask God to forgive us. If we did something to hurt someone else, we need to figure that out and ask for their forgiveness as well in a strategic way.
– Do something good to make up for it.
– If we go back to that sin, start the process over. If applicable, seek professional help.

Do not underestimate the importance of support and therapy. Depending on what a person is struggling with, it can be critical to seek professional support.

You’re Worthy of Allah’s Love

Now obviously, this doesn’t mean we go out and seek doing bad things since we know God is forgiving and we can just make it up with good ones. The point is that when we make a mistake, never despair in Allah’s desire or ability to forgive us. Realize that

His mercy overcomes His wrath. (Bukhâri)

A young woman once came to me after a lecture I gave and, crying, she said, “My family always made me feel like I’m a screw-up. They even told me that my prayers wouldn’t count since I did so many messed up things anyway. I thought Allah hated me. It wasn’t until this moment that I realized that maybe Allah does love me. Maybe He actually loves me.”

Allah doesn’t expect perfection from you. He knows you are a struggling, frustrated believer who is trying despite the falls. He knows you better than you know yourself. But that doesn’t diminish His love for you or His ability to forgive you. Don’t let anyone come between your relationship with your Creator and His forgiveness of you.

Don’t let your guilt, your inability to forgive yourself–or the way other people treat you–be what makes you think God doesn’t love you or want to forgive you. Turn to Him. He wants to accept you. Allow His love to enter your life.

God wants that He turns to you in forgiveness. [Sûrat Al-Nisâ’, 4:27]

19 August 2020 Ex country treasurer of Citibank, NA. Not a full time blogger but a pragmatist and a true reflector of life and faith. I only write that is honest, humane, non-conflicting with Qur'an and sunnah. In order to uphold those principles, unfortunately, I sometimes have to write some stories involving my senior colleagues (responsible for creating the roadmap of twin towers terrorism). The blogs can in an independent reader's mind hit as a losers quid pro quo or a born again jihadist's new "al Queda" aka cia tricks. They think probably to mislead the west (or if I may add the far east including A/ NZ) by one who was thought to be one of them and widely have been proven and considered to be a "trusted friend". Since no one knows how gently and decently he tried to slip away from a very thankless, unimaginably powerful and equally heartless culture (almost like tom cruises Firm Hollywood blockbuster movie). Although the drama of exit interview etc were completed but secretļy they plotted against me. Only much later to understand that they had robbed me off my freedom and pretended to be very offended by my "deserter act" even with my 6 months notice resignation. Nevertheless my resignation was a bolt from the sky for the hot shot wall street bankers. Later it hit me that it was a way to save their faces but with a strange slave master attitude towards a fellow human who comes from an ancient civilisation than them with mashallah (since Allah wished) solid foundation of family (ancestry that is traceable to 250/300 years) and education that was sufficient to save the Name Problem, the most important asset of a financial institution. It was Citigroup (then Citibank NA) the biggest and best name among all mega money centre banks (at least from the outside, from inside we could understand the same but never made felt or for that matter never paid to the heights of its success and earnings). Back to education, in the hind sight glad not an ivy league graduate because these schools don't prepare humans, rather arrogant untouched with reality elitist monsters! My blogs are mashallah mandatorily and readily available testimonials on limits mentioned in the Quran and Hadids (seometimes violated for the sake of upholding decency by exposing nudity, indecency & pornos which are being made cheaply, widely and indiscreamenently available to all). Well let me elaborate a little more why I have mashallah taken up writing. Just start reading my blogs and soon inshallah (Allah willing) you will learn something u won't regret. You will understand what I am trying is to eradicate the ignorance - mostly imposed by the western govts to mislead us all. Why? In order to inflict prejudice and hatred in our minds. That creates opportunity for them to falsify the truth against Muslims and their religion Islam. They don't care for u because they are mostly some ill trained power loving, wisdomless, wreckless, irresponsible, evil worshiping bigots, power hungry liars. The 911 part of my life that I, from time to time, share as evidences with the public my unfortunate job related exposure to the modern times largest, most sophisticated, merciless, non muslim religious fundamentalists terrorists plots under the protection and sympathy of their governments. These two combinedly are the causes for the demolition of the twin towers in Manhattan, NY. After that many more major terrorists acts throughout the world. They generally use sorcery to set these terrorist acts in special venues, with underlying days/ dates and occasions so that apparently Muslims are doubted and blamed. Purpose is to create hatred against the last and only true religion left in the world, Islam. Inshallah, although censored under most evil ways used to design through complex, difficult, intimidating and hostile situations surrounding me, and sickness implanted in me, I will continue on with my efforts to share the evidences and expose the hypocrits and lying crook perpetrators till they are brought to justice. Truth inshallah will come out sooner rather than later and the unholy bizness of generally portraying muslims as terrorists will stop once and for all. Hope you all peace, prosperity and happiness. May Allah bless us all. My website:
