Do not let the devil daunt you!

Abdullah ibn Mushabbib al-Qahtāni

Some people, when afflicted with disasters, crises, or saddening incidents, they give up their faith and fail to remember that Allah Almighty is more merciful to them than their own selves. So, they do not knock on the door of the Most Compassionate or hope for His mercy. That is why, they fall into the devil’s misleading plots, which may ultimately lead them to ruin. Allah Almighty says:

{...And do not kill your selves. Surely Allah has been Most Merciful to you.}

[Surat an - Nisā’: 29]

Do not ever think that your sin, no matter how great it may be, can be greater than Allah’s mercy!The devil wants nothing but this from you; namely to make the sin look so big in your eyes that you belittle Allah’s mercy in comparison.

Indeed, the mercy of Allah is greater than your sin and any sin. The man who killed 99 people and then completed them a hundred repented to Allah sincerely, so Allah forgave him. 

I put all my trust in You, my Lord. 

And I will not go through any door but Yours.

Allah Almighty says:

{On the Day We will gather the righteous to the Most Compassionate as a delegation.}

[Surat Maryam: 85]

What a great promise, what a noble delegation, and what an excellent feeling! May Allah make us among this delegation.

O Allah, if we are not worthy of attaining Your mercy, indeed Your mercy is worthy of reaching us. So, encompass us in Your mercy in this world and in the Hereafter, O the Most Merciful of those who show mercy!
