‘Indeed, your Lord is swift in penalty; but indeed, He is Forgiving and Merciful.’
(Surah Al Araf 7:167)
One of the most essential things that we Muslims must grasp is to incorporate the feeling of love, fear and hope of Allah within our hearts; the balance should be reflected in our worship.
We should always hope that Allah will accept our repentance and forgive us, but we should also fear that we may be accountable for our actions. May Allah (swt) grant us all the wisdom to understand, Ameen.
