[Sister and family was going through hardships in life and committed sins] Well, I am a very bad muslim. I have the worst past in my life....I want to be close to Allah, I wish I was closer to Allah. But I am not, I dont deserve .. ....


May Allah bless you with piety (Taqwa) and purity, strong emaan, forgiveness of sins, have mercy on you, bless you with knowledge of Deen and generosity'. May Allah guide you to right path! Ameen!

Allah is All Wise, All Merciful. Allah loves us more than seventy mothers do. Difficulties and trials can become a
means of raising our status and earn countless reward. Allah says in the Qur'an: (interpretation of the meaning):

'..Truly the steadfast will be paid their recompense without limit'[Az-Zumar, 10].

Tau'bah (Seeking Forgiveness)
Allah (Subhanahu WaTaala), the all-Merciful and all-Forgiving, declares in the Holy Qur'an:

'Say: O My slaves who have transgressed against themselves (by committing evil deeds and sins)! Despair not of the Mercy of Allah, verily Allah forgives all sins. Truly, He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.' [Qur'an 39: 53

It is the nature of mankind to be forgetful and to commit sins. However, Allah has given us the ability to rectify
ourselves by turning to Him and begging for His forgiveness. Our mountains of evil deeds are nothing before the vast ocean of the mercy of Allah.

Abu Dhar RadiyAllahu `anhu reports that Rasulullah Sallallahu `alaihi wasallam in a Hadith Qudsi (a hadith in
which the Blessed Prophet s quotes Allah) said: 'Indeed Allah the Almighty and Majestic says:

'O My slave! Verily, as long as you worship Me and have hope in Me, I shall forgive you for what you have done;
O My slave! If you meet Me with an earthful of sins, but do not associate any partner with Me, I would grant you a
forgiveness as great as the whole world.' (Musnad Ahmad)

Committing sins may make you sorrowful, depressed and deeply disappointed with yourself. But if you return to
Allah with a few tears and beseech Him for mercy, He will certainly forgive you. There is no other door to knock
to solve our issues. None can forgive sins except Him. He calls us to the abode of peace (Paradise); He is the

Almighty who hides our faults and He alone can replace our bad deeds with good deeds.
The door of repentance is always open for a person until he dies or until the sun rises from the west, whichever

comes first. When something is a necessity Allah provides it in abundance like air and water. Since we are
always sinful and negligent of Allah and Satan and the self are always inciting us towards evil, therefore tau'bah
is provided in abundance so we can turn back to Allah.

Allah has created a solution to every sickness even if it may be the poison of a snake. Satan and sins are a major
sickness and the cure for it is in tau'bah and istighfar, crying in front of Allah with deep regret in the heart.

Whenever our tau'bah breaks we should make tau'bah again. Some people despair and think they are sinners
and will go to Hellfire. Tau'bah is so powerful that it can take a person from the lowest levels of Hellfire and raise him to the highest levels of Paradise.

Allah (Subhanahu WaTaala), the Lord of Mercy, puts mercy in the hearts of every mother in the world by which they love and care for their children. We make mistakes but Allah overlooks our faults. Our worship and good deeds are not perfect but Allah accepts them and multiplies the reward.

Good manners - observe complete Hijab, make Isteghfar, increase time for Dua.
