Today's Ayat for Friday, 2018-09-14 / 04 Muharram 1440
Say: "O My servants who transgressed against themselves, do not despair of God's mercy. For God forgives all sins. He is the Forgiver, the Merciful."
-- az-Zumar 39:53 as rendered by The Monotheist Group
قُلْ يَا عِبَادِيَ الَّذِينَ أَسْرَفُوا عَلَىٰ أَنفُسِهِمْ لَا تَقْنَطُوا مِن رَّحْمَةِ اللَّهِ إِنَّ اللَّهَ يَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوبَ جَمِيعًا إِنَّهُ هُوَ الْغَفُورُ الرَّحِيمُ
IslamAwakened has been asked to add commentary to our Today's Ayat
This is today's comment:
Most of us have a "past"
It is easy to fall into dispair, thinking that our past is a permanent shackle
but we have an infitnitely merciful Creator
and our past is a mere speck to Him.
If we get right in our lives, with our Creator's help,
the past that weighted us down can become our reminder going forward.
This is an OPINION.
We must always read the verse(s) for ourselves!
