NEW BOOK: Until the Sun Rises from the West: Reflections on the Stories of the Repentance and Forgiveness


Until the Sun Rises from the West

One of the greatest weapons forged against the onset of Shayṭān
and his troops is sincere Tawbah. The Prophet (peace be upon him) stated:
“Whoever repents before the sun rises from its west, Allāh will accept his repentance.” This narration, and a
myriad of others with similar meaning, serves as an admonition
for all who hear, see and give thought; remembering that
perfection is for Allāh Alone. As for the created nature
of the children of Ᾱdam, then it is indeed flawed, in need of
Allāh’s Mercy.
Thus, we must be ever-mindful of this need and heedful of the
fact that nothing comes between the slave of Allāh and Tawbah,
no matter how grave the sin. It is therefore our sincere hope and
prayer that these stories of repentance encourage all who read
them to turn from transgression to contrition, earnestly seeking
the Pardon and Forgiveness of al-Raḥmān.
