Every person is indeed sinful


You must have heard a Hadith of Mishkât Sharîf. Allah Ta’aala has granted a great favour and procedure to his sinful servants on the tongue of Rasulullah Sallallâhu alaihi wasallam. Every person is indeed sinful. Mullâ Ali Qâri has explained that the word ‘khattâ’ used in the Hadith means ‘extremely sinful’. What is the cure for this? The cure is excessive Istighfaar and Taubah (seeking forgiveness and repenting). The cure matches the illness. Thus Rasulullah (Sallallâhu alaihi wasallam) said, “Every human sins excessively and the best of sinners are the repentant ones.” (Mishkât-al Masâbîh p.204.)

I saw the pulse of the universe drowning,
when I saw the temperament of my beloved disturbed.

  3. Clearly an indication to remind us to constantly recite praises to Allah (SWT) and humbly seek his forgiveness as we can never be sure that we have rid ourselves from sins.

    Thanks for the reminder. ^

  4. ASA, This is a great reminder about the nature of man. Sometimes we may feel like as hard as we try we do not measure up to what we hope. While that does not mean we should just give up; this hadith shows u that it is in our nature to sin, not only sin but extremly sinful. So knowing this we should ALWAYS be mindful about that and ask for forgivness constantly and even though it is in our nature we need to try to do better in our weak areas.

    I know for myself there are areas that As much as I want to do better in I dont but this makes me remember I am not alone in this and I just need to keep asking Allah, swt, to forgive me and help me to do better and become a better Muslim.
