Bismillah was salaatu was salamu alaa RasoolAllah. Was salamu alaykum sons and daughters of mothers who bore you with great distress, and whose favor — a favor so great it can never be recompensed — we too often return with boredom or indifference.
Astagfirullah wa attooboo alayh. I ask for Allah’s Forgiveness, and I repent to Him. And I am grateful to Him for making me cognizant of my faults while I have time to make amends to the one he made guardian and nourisher over me when I was in every way without recourse and without power. Truly Allah is the One Who Provides, and we only delude ourselves if we believe we achieve anything by our own means or our own power, such that we need no longer be grateful.
And if I do not mend my ways, then no power of mine will hide my name or my disgrace from the world on the Day of Accounting. So I must do more than try. I must submit, and I must succeed.
This penitent son is abu abdAllah Tariq Ahmed. Share this video with sons and daughters you know who need a reminder. Send it to them while they have time to act bi idhnillah.
