Has Ramadan taught me nothing?
Dua on going out from home
- Bismillaahi ta wakkaltu ‘allal laahi laa hawla wa la quwwata illaa billaah
- In the Name of Allah, I have placed my trust in Allah. There’s no power nor might except by Allah.
"The person who reads this Dua while leaving home will be protected from Satan, and everything that is harmful until he returns and all his works will be completed for which he came out of his house." (Tirmidhi)
Anonymous asked: I had a sinful thought and I wanted to make tawba really fast just to be sure I was forgiven but I forgot the thoughts but it wasn't very nice. How can someone repent for something they forgot? Or is it unnecessary? I'm learning about Islam still so I have questions about questions LOL
Salamu Alaikum Anon!
Do you know what is an amazing mercy from Allah? That you are not punished for your bad thoughts! Subhanallah. So as long as you didn’t speak or act on your bad thoughts, it’s okay you don’t even have to repent from it!
Al-Bukhaari (6491) and Muslim (131) narrated from Ibn ‘Abbaas (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said, relating from his Lord, may He be glorified and exalted: “Allah decreed good deeds and bad deeds, then He explained that. Whoever thinks of doing a good deed then does not do it, Allah will write it down as one complete good deed. If he thinks of doing a good deed and then does it, Allah [may He be glorified and exalted] will write it down between ten and seven hundred fold, or many more. If he thinks of doing a bad deed then he does not do it, Allah will write it down as one complete good deed, and if he thinks of it then does it, Allah will write it down as one bad deed.”
Al-Bukhaari (5269) and Muslim (127) also narrated from Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him), that the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “Allah, may He be glorified and exalted, will forgive my ummah for whatever crosses their minds so long as they do not act upon it or speak of it.”
As for repenting for something you forgot, if it was an act, if you remember the general action and have in mind not to repeat it then you’re good.
And no worries about asking questions, Islam is a religion of constant learning. Don’t feel bad about what you don’t know, as long as you are seeking knowledge you’re good. Please come to me with any other questions you may have.
there are two roads:
"remember me and I will remember you.! - Qur’an 2:152
"they forgot Allah so He forgot them." - Qur’an 9:67
