Repentance In Islam

Post by Imran on Sat 20 Feb 2016, 8:01 pm

Feelings of remorse and guilt are natural
reflections of sinning, if the person who has
sinned has a conscious which is alive.

After committing a sin, a person who fears
Allah and give high respect to Him would feel a
sense of despondency and despair thinking,
"How will God forgive me for this sin?"
However, it is noteworthy that despairing of
God's mercy is in itself one of the major sins
in Islam for God is ever merciful, ever

As He says in the Qur'an:
"Do not despair of God's mercy; He will forgive
you of all your sins".Qur'an (39:53).

n another verse, Allah says:
"And He wishes to forgive you" Qur'an (4:146).
Islam fully understands the temptations that
come in the way of everyone of us, and that
which some of us might go for. Only through
repentance, that one can wipeout those sins
and past misdeeds and gradually get freed
from the clutches of the ego.

Repentance is the most noble and beloved
form of obedience in the eyes of Allah the All
Mighty. He loves those who repent.
Repentance has a status that no other form of
worship has. This is why Allah is extremely
happy when a servant repents just as a
traveller is happy when he finds his lost mount
in the desert.

Feeling Allah's satisfaction has its great impact
on the heart of the one repenting. Hence, the
repenting person reaches the status of being
amongst the beloved through his repentance.

Moreover, repentance brings about
humbleness and a sense of helplessness to the
only Creator; Allah, and that is not easily
acquired through other forms of worship.

Allah says in the Qur'an:
"Except those who repent, have faith and good
deeds, those Allah will charge their sins for
good deeds. Certainly Allah is most forgiving
and merciful." (Qur'an 25:70)

This is a greatest glad tiding for those who
repent and combine their repentance with
deep faith and good deeds.

pentance breeds good deeds, whilst sinning
(without repentance) can cause deprivation of
obedience altogether. It has been said that
committing sins regularly will darken and
harden the heart and make purifying it once
again a difficult mission. It may even lead a
person to reject Allah completely (Allah forbid)
or lead him to commit a bigger sin. There is no
recourse for a sinner except to ask Allah for
forgiveness and to feel great regret for his

Repentance is to repent from the heart, to
train the heart into obedi ence and to make a
firm resolution never to commit the sin again.
How to repent?

For repentance to be accepted by Allah, one
should go through these four stages:

    1. 1- Stop the sin.

      2- Regretting deeply and truly for the sin you committed.

      3- Return to Allah for forgiveness.

      4- Strong intention never to return to that
      same sin again.

  • What would help in fulfilling the above four
    The repenting person should remember three

    1. 1. The grave consequence of sins.

      2. The painful punishment for sins and

      3. How week a person is when committing
      such sins.

  • Abu Bakr Al siddiq (May Allah be pleased with
    him), narrated:
    "I heard Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) saying:
    "There isn't a man who, when he commits a
    sin, rises, makes ablution, and offers two
    rak'as of prayers, but Allah forgives his sins."

    Allah says in the Qur'an:
    "Those (are the true believers) who, when they
    commit an evil deed, or wrong their souls,
    remember Allah, and seek forgiveness for their
    sins - and who but Allah forgives sins? They do
    not insist upon the sins they have committed,
    and they know (that Allah is forgiving)
    ." (Qur'an 3:135)
