A Moment Of Weakness

Recommended Posts

Regarding  moments of weakness when thoughts of giving in to sin occur, I would like to mention something beneficial I heard from my Shaykh...


When there is desire to sin then one should not fall for the devious tricks of Shaytaan and say, “Allah is Ghafoorur Raheem” or remember the verse of the Qur'an: “Do not despair of the mercy of Allah”.

At this time one should remember the verse, “Innallaaha shadeedul ‘iqaab”, i.e. Allah’s punishment is great. Fear His wrath coming down and avoid committing the sin.

Remember that a Believer does not plan to sin. In fact he avoids all that leads to sin but sometimes nafs and Shaytaan take over and a sin is committed When this happens and a sin is committed, then now have hope in Allah’s mercy and do not despair. . . Now is the time to once again ignore the whisperings of Shaytaan and turn to Allah with regret and repentance. Now is the time to say Allah is Ghafoorur Raheem!
