“…I found Your forgiveness to be greater…”


ولما قسا قلبي وضاقت مذاهبي *** جعلت الرجا مني لعفوك سلما

تعاظمني ذنبي فلما قرنته *** بعفوك ربي كان عفوك أعظما

فما زلت ذا عفو عن الذنب لم تزل *** تجود وتعفو منة وتكرمــا

 

“When my heart became constricted and my paths became narrow
I took my hope in Your pardon and forgiveness as an opening and an escape
My sins seemed very great to me but when I compared them to Your forgiveness
I found Your forgiveness to be greater”

[Imam Ash-Shafiee]

About Umm Abdulazeez

"I am a Muslim who is upon the Qur'aan and the Sunnah and upon the methodology of the Salaf As-Saalih (Pious Predecessors). And that can be said in short by saying, 'I am a Salafee' " [Shaykh Al-Albaanee رحمه الله] ________ Sufyaan Ath-Thawree (rahimahullaah) said: “Indeed knowledge should only be learned for the purpose of fearing Allaah. Indeed, knowledge has been given virtue over other than it because with it Allaah is feared.” [Jaam'i Bayaan al-'Ilm wa Fadlihi by Imaam Ibn Abdil-Barr (rahimahullaah)]
