Repentance: Gate Of All Gates.


Recommended Posts

As-Salaam alaikum,

               "And O you believers!  

                    Repent (and turn) ye all together towards Allah,

                  that you may attain Bliss".   (Nur- 24:31)

 

Whoever wishes to reach Allah Ta'ala should enter from the gate of all gates-- Repentance. This is the first gate to be crossed by the servant when he seeks to enter the Presence of nearness to the Exaltation of the Lord of Heavens and Earth.

The ayat quoted above indicates that repentance is an obligation, a duty.  When inviting people to it, the Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, said:--

                 "The one who repents from his sin is as the one who is sinless;

                      Repentance erases whatever has preceded it."   And "Allah accepts

                    the repentance of His bondsman until he is gasping [death rattle]."

 

Know that repentance is an incumbent obligation, since the avoidance of sin and obedience to Allah are an unceasing duty. Let us repent, return to Allah Ta'ala by:--

 (1) Regretting and show of remorse for disobedience.

(2) Immediate abandonment of sin and

(3) Determination not to sin again.
