It's the time of the year where majority of us stress about studying. I don't think I'll be updating for a while though i have all these topics in my head that i want to blog about. I have finals coming up and other things which are going on right now that prevent me from blogging.
I'm so stressed. I wish i was like those people who study 24/7 and only take little five minute breaks. I procrastinate so much and waste most of my day doing silly things.
However, before i go, i thought it would be nice to share this with my readers. Although we might know this already and it might be at the back of our heads, it is always good to remind ourselves.
Below is an excerpt from an article which talks about repentance:
The Messenger of Allah, sallallahu `alaihi wa sallam, said: "The master of invocations for forgiveness is that the servant says:
'Allãhumma 'anta rabbee, lã 'ilãha 'illã 'anta, khalaqtanee, wa 'anã `abduka, wa 'anã `alã `ahdika wa wa`dika mastata`tu, 'a`outhu bika min sharri ma sana`tu, 'aboo'u laka bini`matika 'alayya, wa 'aboo'u bithambee, faghfirlee fa'innahu lã yaghfiru 'aththunooba 'illã 'anta.
O' my 'ilãh You are my Lord, there is no 'ilãh but You. You created me, and I am your bondservant, and I will stick to my covenant and promise [of faith and sincere obedience] to You, as to my ability. I seek refuge in You from the evil of what I have done, I acknowledge, to You, your bounties upon me, and I acknowledge, to You, my sin. Thus forgive me, for none forgives sins except You.
Whoever says this as he enters upon evening, then, dies that night, he would enter Paradise; and if one says this as he enters upon morning, then, dies that day, he would enter Paradise". [Al-Bukhari]
May Allah subhanna wa ta'ala purify our intentions and allow us to enter Jannatul-Firdaus.
Keep me in your duas.
