All praise be to Allaah
I seek Allaah’s Forgiveness
لا حول ولا قوة إلا بالله
There is no power or strength except with Allaah
Shaikhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullaah) said:
The slave finds himself between two affairs: (Firstly) is that which Allaah does for him and that is the blessings of Allaah upon him. Therefore, he is need of giving thanks. (Secondly) is that which he carries out himself and that is either a good or evil (deed). As for the good (deed), he is in need of Allaah’s aid and assistance (for it performance). And (as for the) evil deed he does, he is in need of seeking Allaah’s forgiveness in order to wipe away its (evil) effects.
