Seek Forgiveness

Your Mercy, O Lord!

My people! Seek forgiveness of your Lord, and turn to Him repentant. He will cause the sky to rain abundance on you and will add to your strength. Do not go back to transgression! - Qur'an 11:52

A man went back to transgressing after he had sincerely asked forgiveness of God and swore never to sin again. "How will God forgive me this time?" he asked in despair.
A heavenly voice responded, "You obeyed Me and I made amends for you, then you abandoned Me and I indulged you, and now that you returned to Me I shall receive you." - Al-Hujwiri, Kashf al-Mahjub

    It would be nice if you referenced calligraphic peices. Who is the calligrapher of this particular beautiful piece? I cannot read the signature

  2. Wa'alaykum Assalam,

    My apologies, I agree it would be nice, but as these are pieces I've collected on the internet over years, I often do not know which calligrapher wrote it.

    Please pray for me.
