Who among us does not sin? And who among us does all that is required of him in the religion?
It is an undeniable fact that we all have shortcomings; what distinguishes some of us from the others, what raises some of us above the others, is that the successful ones among us are those who repent their sins and ask Allah to forgive them.
It is truly encouraging to know that the door to repentance is always open. Glad tidings, then, to every Muslim who constantly and consistently hastens to repent to Allah and to ask for His forgiveness.

A beautiful book on the act of repentance. The compilation stretches from
hadiths to stories to commonly heard encounters. One con noted in the
compilation is that some of the stories are not referenced…but reading it
for the content suffices the need for references as the theme is common
How can one change their ways, their actions and their heart, Can be seen
in this book. The author states in the introduction that Allah’s Vastness
in Forgiveness of his creation is limitless, major to the minor sins. The
key is not to lose hope in Allah, as he is All-Hearing All-Knowing.
Each one of us has a personal link with Allah, as He knows everything we do
on a daily bases. The choices we make, the turns we take in line all know
to Him as He is closer to us than our jugular vain. Our creator is right
next to us every second of the day, thus making a prayer any time anywhere
will be heard and will be recorded and Allah SWT will relate to us on The
Day that pray, thus the doors to forgiveness are always open. It’s the
human will to bend and restrain and realize and submit and stand up to our
faults that adds the final caveat to receiving Allah’s Mercy.
The stories present examples from simple prayers to actions of repentance
to practice into a life of Zuhud.
Each story creates a frame work to the vastness of Allah’s Forgiveness to
his creation, opening up windows to realization of one’s sin[s]. the
actions of the participants give us a repertoire of tools to adhere to if
and when we come across such situation in our life and to reflect on our
sins of the past and to ask forgiveness; as asking forgiveness is our
evidence to our regret towards our sin[s].
The one thing to watch out for is the mistake that Allah SWT will forgive
our sins no matter what! All we need to do is ask forgiveness and that’s
it….which could lead us into an error in itself. The author does emphasize
this in the introduction as only Allah SWT knows whose repentance was
To the Thamud People [We sent] Salih, one of their own brethren. He said:
"O my people! Worship Allah: ye have no other god but Him. It is He Who
hath produced you from the earth and settled you therein: then ask
forgiveness of Him, and turn to Him [in repentance]: for my Lord is
[always] near, ready to answer." Surat Hud, 11:61
