Surah Zumar (39) 29/04/2016

In the name of Allah, most Kind, most Merciful

Sura 39 (Zumar-Crowds)

Despair not of Allah’s mercy

Verse 53: Say: “O my Servants who have transgressed against their souls! Despair not of the Mercy of Allah: for Allah forgives all sins: for He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.

As humans we often falter and make mistakes, but the doors of Allah’s forgiveness and mercy are always open.  It is part of Allah (SWT)’s mercy to forgive us and give us opportunities to grow and develop ourselves.  Every moment of life affords us an opportunity to enter the door of Allah’s mercy and we should not hesitate to take this opportunity.  As Allah (SWT) repeatedly mentions: He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.  The next verse makes it clear:

Verse 54: “Turn ye to our Lord (in repentance) and bow to His (Will), before the Penalty comes on you: after that ye shall not be helped.
