The life of this world is a journey
Ephemeral joy, transient pleasure
Momentary sorrow, nothing lasts forever
Pain and suffering shall all come to an end
O the one plunged deep into the ocean of sin
Rise to the surface, come out of darkness
Ascend the ladder to Heaven, light up your heart
Repent with sincerity for your transgressions
Yearn for forgiveness; for your Lord loves to forgive.
“…Indeed, Allah loves those who are constantly repentant and loves those who purify themselves.”
(Subhan’Allah the reference of this verse is so easy to remember “2:222”, don’t you think? Let’s make a mental note of it. We need it.)
“Say, “O My servants who have transgressed against themselves [by sinning], do not despair of the mercy of Allah . Indeed, Allah forgives all sins. Indeed, it is He who is the Forgiving, the Merciful.”
Let’s not forget,
“Know that the life of this world is but amusement and diversion and adornment and boasting to one another and competition in increase of wealth and children – like the example of a rain whose [resulting] plant growth pleases the tillers; then it dries and you see it turned yellow; then it becomes [scattered] debris. And in the Hereafter is severe punishment and forgiveness from Allah and approval. And what is the worldly life except the enjoyment of delusion.“
Do remember me in your dua’as!
