The Love and Mercy of Allah

Bismillah Hirahmaan Nirraheem. In the Name of Allah The Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.

In a hadith Qudsi, Allah (‘Azza wa Jalla) says:
O son of Adam, so long as you call upon Me and ask of Me, I shall forgive you for what you have done, and I shall not mind.
O son of Adam, were your sins to reach the clouds of the sky and were you then to ask forgiveness of Me, I would forgive you and I would not mind.
O son of Adam, were you to come to Me with sins nearly as great as the earth and were you then to face Me, ascribing no partner to Me, I would bring you forgiveness nearly as great as it.”

Can one measure the love Allah has for us? The love and mercy He has bestowed upon us? That no matter how many sins we commit HIS mercy will always be upon us. That no matter how bad we do, we will always have HIM to forgive us.

Allah’s word brings us at peace. We are human, we err, we sin, we try and try but often fail again. Allah Azz’ zawa jal loves those who strive to walk the righteous path. HE loves those who fall but stand up again in shame realizing their mistake. He loves those who believe in HIM to be the One True Deity. Those who look up to Him with recognition of their Lord, knowing HE will always be there for them.

Us as people, when we commit a sin and realize our mistake, we look for someone whom we can confide in and apologize to. To be free of the burden we carry of our transgressions. We run to find peace of heart from the guilt and shame in our hearts. We run to those whom we know will listen to us, will support us and will be there for us, generally speaking it being our parents or spouses. But if one realizes that they too are human and that they may not be always there for us. They might not forgive us for a wrong doing; they may not always be with us through our lives to be a comfort to lean against; or they may unintentionally hurt us.

Allah, only Allah will always be there for us. No matter how bad we are, how many sins we commit, how damned and undeserving we believe our selves to be; but that one belief of Allah… that will be our light. It will be our guide, our help. Allah will never give up on us, Allah will always give us a chance. It is up to us to take that second chance and stand up. Stand up and please HE who created us, HE who has promised to always be there for us, HE who says that despite HIS anger HIS mercy will always be Greater. We should use the tongue HE created to praise HIM, the body HE gave us to prostrate to HIM, the eyes HE gave us to cry for HIM.

Allah will always do everything for us, why don’t we spend our lives doing everything for HIM. Our Lord, our Creator, our Provider, our Sustainer. You will NEVER find yourself alone, you will always have Allah. Allah is our One True Strength, our Comfort and our Security.

Allah, our Lord, our Maula. HIS mercy prevails and HIS support will never deter, HE will always be there for you HE will always forgive you if you come to HIM with a true heart and repentance. HE will always be there for you. Believe in Allah and Trust in Him. When you have no where to go, you always have a  way back to Allah. HE will always find a way to bless us with HIS mercy.

Reported by Ibn Umar (RA): I heard Messenger of Allah (PBUH) saying, “A believer will be brought close to his Rubb on the Day of Resurrection and enveloping him in His Mercy, He (SWT) will make him confess his sins by saying: `Do you remember (doing) this sin and this sin?’ He will reply: My Rubb, I remember.’ Then He (SWT) will say: I covered it up for you in the life of world, and I forgive it for you today. Then the record of his good deeds will be handed to him”.
[Bukhari and Muslim].
