“It’s dark and It’s late
I lay here in my bed, restless.
There’s a small something,
twisting and turning in me.
A name to it I cannot place.
My body is tired,
My mind wants to rest,
But sleep I cannot find.
Something is troubling me inside.
I feel sick
I feel helpless
I feel wretched
I feel that I’m the worst on the planet.
Disgusted at my state.
A thousand promises I have made,
Yet I’ve slipped time and time again and broken them all.
I’ve sinned and oppressed myself.
I’m engulfed in darkness.
I feel helpless.
My soul is restless,
As if there is a fire burning deep within.
To whom do I turn?
What can I do to relieve this burn?
“Where is the way out?!”
A voice inside silently screams and then…
Clear as the sun, the answer beams bright.
Radiant, enlightening me with hope:
قُلْ يَا عِبَادِيَ الَّذِينَ أَسْرَفُوا عَلَىٰ أَنفُسِهِمْ
لَا تَقْنَطُوا مِن رَّحْمَةِ اللَّهِ
إِنَّ اللَّهَ يَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوبَ جَمِيعًا
إِنَّهُ هُوَ الْغَفُورُ الرَّحِيمُ
Say, “O My servants (those) who have transgressed against themselves [by sinning], do not despair of the mercy of Allah . Indeed, Allah forgives all sins. Indeed, it is He who is the Forgiving, the Merciful.”
Advice to the youth out there, suffering from sins
Stop right now!
Allah is with you
Remember that whoever does a good deed does so for his own benefit and whosoever commits a sin does so to his own detriment ( only he will suffer the punishment for his sins )
