Sahih Muslim: The Book of Repentance and Forgiveness (Paperback)
In the name of Allah the Most High, the Most Forgiving and All-Wise. May Allah's Peace and Blessings be upon His Messenger, his companions and those who follow their footsteps until the Last Day. To begin: I'm Sorry. I wish I had not done that. I wish I could turn back time. Give me another chance. Please forgive me. Although these are different words, they all carry the same meaning: regret. During our personal journeys through life, we do and say things we regret later. Sometimes we look for excuses or transfer blame elsewhere. Nonetheless, the deeds were done and the words were said.The desire and resolve to do better next time is important, but the re-moval of past faults and sins is also necessary. Regret is halfway to a clean slate. Then it is immediately necessary to seek forgiveness. No matter what was said or done, Allah is Ar-Rahman, Ar-Rahim, Al-Ghafur. He forgives all sins, except joining partners with Him, so be cautious of coming near this.In this book, you will learn about the vast forgiveness of Allah and the wisdom behind our sins. You will learn about the man who killed ninety-nine men, how to remove sins, and the value of good deeds and dhikr. By the end of this book you will value life because of its potential for repent-ance, which is only accepted from the living until the soul reaches the throat. These ahadeeth will teach the proper way to repent to Allah, so that the breaths of every day can be ones of repentance and forgiveness.I have taken these ahadeeth from the third most authentic book on earth: Sahih Muslim. Every hadeeth has an explanation for it from Shaykh Muhammad Al-Ameen ibn 'Abdillah Al-Harraree Al-Ethiopi (May Allah preserve him) and other scholarly sources. I ask Allah to allow you to benefit from these explanations of the words of the Prophet (may peace be upon him). I ask Allah to allow this deed to be placed on my scale of good deeds in the Hereafter, and I beg Allah for His Mercy and Forgiveness in this life and the Hereafter.
