Hasten in Seeking Forgiveness

January 7, 2015 § Leave a comment

Imaam AbdurRahmaan ibn al-Jawzee rahimahullaah said: The (effect) of sins upon the heart is like the effect of oil upon a garment; If you do not hasten in washing it off, then it will spread!

— [Kitaab al-Mudhish, p.357]

The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said: “When a slave commits a sin, a black spot appears on his heart. But if he give it up, seeks forgiveness and repents, his heart will be cleansed, but if he repeats it, (the blackness) will increase until it overwhelms his heart. This is the raan which Allaah mentions: ‘Nay! But on their hearts is the Raan (covering of sins and evil deeds) which they used to earn’ [al-Mutaffifeen 83:14 – interpretation of the meaning]”

(Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 3257; Ibn Maajah, 4234; classed as hasan (sound) by al-Albaani inSaheeh Ibn Maajah, 3422).
