His Mercy – رحمته

He gave you health, and you weakened it by sins. He gave you senses, and you disobeyed Him with them. He gave you wealth, and you spent it on the wrong channels. He gave you a mind, and you worshiped others with it. Yet He took none of it from you, and He keeps His door wide open as He says “Say O My servants who have transgressed against themselves [by sinning], do not despair of the mercy of Allah . Indeed, Allah forgives all sins. Indeed, it is He who is the Forgiving, the Merciful” (Al-Zumar – 53). This is the only mercy I know.

أعطاك صحة وأنهكتها بالخطايا. أعطاك حواساً وعصيته بها. أعطاك ثروة فأنفقتها فيما يغضبه. أعطاك عقلاً فعبدت به غيره. ورغم ذلك لم يأخذ منها شيئاً، بل أبقى بابه مفتوحاً وقال “قُلْ يَا عِبَادِيَ الَّذِينَ أَسْرَفُوا عَلَى أَنْفُسِهِمْ لَا تَقْنَطُوا مِنْ رَحْمَةِ اللَّهِ إِنَّ اللَّهَ يَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوبَ جَمِيعًا إِنَّهُ هُوَ الْغَفُورُ الرَّحِيمُ” (الزمر – 53). هذه هي الرحمة الوحيدة التي أعرفها
