Repentance Towards Almighty Allah
Repentance means an act to feel sorry and pity for our bad work which is being done in past or present by us. Allah Tabaraq Watala loves repentance done by human beings and repentance of human beings is accepted by Allah Rabbul Izzat probably that evil work is not repeated again and again. If the so called action is repeated again and again by person than it is not accepted it is like making fun of God. Hence forth repentance should be done from heart and the moment we think any work as bad than should have the same thinking and mentality all throughout our life. Remember repentance should not be for fun but should have whole heartedly repentance from all body parts and heart. Firm repentance should be such that the moment we think doing any bad work our heart should warn us that this act is bad and we have already repented from it and should not think of doing it again. Allah loves real repentance which is done from heart that too just for the cause of Almighty Allah to seek His blessings and mercy. By repentance we can come closer to Allah Rabbul Izzat. Repentance is an act that can forgive all our past and present sins. No matter how big the sins and crimes are, and if we seek forgiveness from heart towards Allah Rabbul Izzat than Allah loves it and forgives us but the condition is that it should not be repeated again and again. Repentance can be done at any time but one should not waste his or her precious time in doing so. We should repent as soon as possible and take no time to repent, and take in an opportunity that Allah has kept such nice things and rewards for repentance to seek His Mercy and Blessings. We humans are always associated with minor to major sins in our life. Rather our whole life is full of sins, cheat and fraud. We hurt people and insult so many of them. We destroy people by treachery. We kill living beings for no reasons. We are always surrounded by sins and crimes and doing any sin is very easy work as it is provoked by devil who indulge us to do all those things with fantasy which are not permitted by God. So we should be very much cautious of such devils and their work and try to do good deeds and repent to Allah and seek blessings of Allah
In Holy Quran Allah says that
Allah wants to make clear to you [the lawful from the unlawful]
and guide you to the [good] practices of those before you and
to accept your repentance. And Allah is Knowing and Wise.
[Quran Surah An-Nisa 4:26]
Abee Hamza Anas ibn Maalik al-Ansaaree ( RadiAllaho TalaAnho)
said that the Messenger of Allah (SallalhoAylehe Wasallam) said: Allah is more pleased with the repentance of His
servant than one of you who falls off his camel
and loses it in a barren desert land.
[Al-Bukhari vol8 #321]
The repentance accepted by Allah is only for those who do
wrong in ignorance [or carelessness] and then repent soon after.
It is those to whom Allah will turn in forgiveness, and Allah is
ever Knowing and Wise.
18. But repentance is not [accepted] of those who [continue to] do
evil deeds up until, when death comes to one of them, he says,
"Indeed, I have repented now," or of those who die while they aredisbelievers. For them We have prepared a painful punishment.
Qur'an - An-Nisa 4:17-18
Hadith - Bukhari 8.800B, Narrated Ikrima from Ibn Abbas
Allah's Apostle said, "When a slave (of Allah) commits illegal sexual intercourse, he is not a believer at the time of committing it; and if he steals, he is not a believer at the time of stealing; and if he drinks an alcoholic drink, when he is not a believer at the time of drinking it; and he is not a believer when he commits a murder." 'Ikrima said: I asked Ibn Abbas, "How is faith taken away from him?" He said, Like this," by clasping his hands and then separating them, and added, "But if he repents, faith returns to him like this," by clasping his hands again.
