SEEKING MERCY OF ALLAH ﷻ
He ﷻ is Most Merciful
Watch on YouTube:
Allah ﷻ says in the Qur’an:
وَإِذَا جَآءَكَ ٱلَّذِينَ يُؤْمِنُونَ بِـَٔايَٰتِنَا فَقُلْ سَلَٰمٌ عَلَيْكُمْ
When those who believe in Our Ayat come to you, say: Peace be upon you!
Means, honor them by returning the Salam and give them the good news of Allah’s exclusive, encompassing mercy for them.
كَتَبَ رَبُّكُمْ عَلَىٰ نَفْسِهِ ٱلرَّحْمَةَ
your Lord has written Mercy for Himself
Meaning, He has obliged His Most Honored Self to grant mercy, as a favor, out of His compassion and beneficence
أَنَّهُۥ مَنْ عَمِلَ مِنكُمْ سُوٓءًۢا بِجَهَٰلَةٍۢ
So that, if any of you does evil in ignorance
ثُمَّ تَابَ مِنۢ بَعْدِهِۦ وَأَصْلَحَ
and thereafter repents and does righteous good deeds
Meaning, by repenting from the sins that he committed, intending not to repeat the sin in the future, but to perform righteous deeds,
فَأَنَّهُۥ غَفُورٌۭ رَّحِيمٌۭ
then surely, He is Oft-Forgiving Most Merciful.
قال رسول الله ﷺ :
لما قضى الله الخلق كتب في كتاب فهو عنده فوق العرش: إن رحمتي غلبت غضبي
When Allah finished with the creation, He wrote in a Book that He has with Him above the Throne, ‘My mercy prevails over My anger’
[Sahih al-Bukhārī 3022, Sahih Muslim 2751]
Allah ﷻ is Ar Rahmaan to his creation!
Ar Raheem to specifically the believers!
His mercy is as He describes:
وَرَحْمَتِى وَسِعَتْ كُلَّ شَىْءٍۢ
And My mercy encompasses all things.
Ponder over this statement!
And come to the realisation that Allah ﷻ showers His mercy upon us in every single moment!
When we stand in Salah, act in obedience or sit in righteous gatherings… Allah ﷻ showers His mercy in abundance.
Ya Ibn Adam! We are all in need of the mercy of Allah, and it is only by His mercy that we don’t die in sin and with Him angry with us. So upon us is to seek more of His mercy.
Ya Ibn Adam! Seek His mercy in worship, obedience, righteous gatherings and places of purity, while staying away from places which brings His wrath!
May Allah ﷻ not disgrace us on Qiyamah, and forgive us for all sins, and grant us entry into Jannah al Firdous by His mercy.
آمِيْن يَارَبَّ الْعَالَمِينْ
