Repentance is the Key

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Imam Ahmad ibn Ahmad az-Zarruq (q.s.) said, “Know that repentance is key, mindfulness of Allah (s.w.t.) is vast, and uprightness is the source of rectification.  Meanwhile, a servant is never free of blunders, shortcomings or lassitude.  Therefore, never be neglectful of repentance; never be remiss in your Return to Allah (s.w.t.); and never neglect acts that bring you closer to Allah (s.w.t.).  Indeed, any time you are remiss in fulfilling any of these three duties, still repent and return; anytime you err, hear and obey; anytime you fall short or burn out, do not give up.”
