You have indeed been Forgiven


Anas (radiallaahu `anhu) narrated that aman went to the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallaam) and said, “O Messenger of Allaah, I have perpetrated a sin for which there is prescribed punishment, so apply it on me.” As it was time for the congregational prayer, the man stayed to pray with the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallaam). When the prayer was finished, the man went to the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallaam) and repeated what he had said earlier: “O Messenger of Allaah, I have perpetrated a sin for which there is prescribed punishment, so apply on me that which is in the Book of Allaah.”

The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallaam) asked: “Did you perfrom prayer with us?”

“Yes,” said the man.

The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallaam) said: “Then you have indeed been forgiven.”¹

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)]
