And remind, for indeed, the reminder benefits the believers.[51:55]
Whenever a person commits any sin, he/she should immediately offer repentance to Allah, saying the following dua.
Allahumma In-nee a-toobu ilayka minha la ar-ji-u ilayhaa abada.
Translation: O Allah, I repent before You for all my sins and I promise never to return to the same (again).
I posted the lyrics and an acapella version of a song here, in hopes that it would cheer up some of my readers after a recent discussion. I did not see the harm in it, but you know what I was uncomfortable with it. I posted it after a FB friend reminded me of it (next topic Facebook is a FITNAH!). Alhamduillah and jazakallahu khayf for the sister who posted a beautiful and much needed reminder. I left her comment but deleted the others.
I ask Allah to forgive me and those of you who I exposed the fitnah of the female singer too. What is said below by the Shaykh is all too true. I can remember many more verses of idle speech than I can of the Quran. I pray that on the Day of Judgement my Quran memorization, recitation, and implimentation far exceeeds that of any song from my days of ignorance…aameen.
O Lord, I have wronged myself. So forgive me. Verily save You there is no one who can protect from the consequences of sinning.
