What we love about being a believer is that we know we have a God who pardons and He has angels who are ever so kind on those who strive to be a good Muslim. Thank Allah for making us believe in angels and thank the angels for this particular favor which weak servants like us should really take advantage. Actually, we've slackened on this practice until we heard a whisper.
The good thing about having a blog is that while we remind ourselves every now and then, we can also remind others InshaAllah. More importantly, we want to put on record some of our practices which our future generations can and will copy InshaAllah.
It's the last three verses of Surah Hashir to memorize and to recite in the morning and evening. It is said that 70,000 angels will seek forgivenes on behalf of the reciter. Oh some skeptics might question the authenticity of this amazing thing but we don't really care because we believe in the unseen. Moreover, we simply love the meaning of the verses as it indicates the grandness of His Majesty. Subhanallahi amma yushrikun.
هُوَ ٱللَّهُ ٱلَّذِي لاَ إِلَـٰهَ إِلاَّ هُوَ عَالِمُ ٱلْغَيْبِ وَٱلشَّهَادَةِ هُوَ ٱلرَّحْمَـٰنُ ٱلرَّحِيمُ
هُوَ ٱللَّهُ ٱلَّذِي لاَ إِلَـٰهَ إِلاَّ هُوَ ٱلْمَلِكُ ٱلْقُدُّوسُ ٱلسَّلاَمُ ٱلْمُؤْمِنُ ٱلْمُهَيْمِنُ ٱلْعَزِيزُ ٱلْجَبَّارُ ٱلْمُتَكَبِّرُ سُبْحَانَ ٱللَّهِ عَمَّا يُشْرِكُونَ
هُوَ ٱللَّهُ ٱلْخَالِقُ ٱلْبَارِىءُ ٱلْمُصَوِّرُ لَهُ ٱلأَسْمَآءُ ٱلْحُسْنَىٰ يُسَبِّحُ لَهُ مَا فِي ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَٱلأَرْضِ وَهُوَ ٱلْعَزِيزُ ٱلْحَكِيمُ
He is God, than Whom there is no other god, Knower of the unseen and the visible. He is the Compassionate, the Merciful. He is God, than Whom there is no other god, the King, the Holy, the Peace, the Securer, the Guardian, the Mighty, the Compeller, the Exalted. Glorified be God above what partners they ascribe! He is God, the Creator, the Maker, the Shaper. To Him belong the Most Beautiful Names. All that is in the heavens and the earth glorify Him, and He is the Mighty, the Wise.
