Surah Nuh, 10-12

Yesterday my ustazah mention about this 3 ayats.

so hopefully this will increase my asking for fogiveness from Allah.

” Ask forgiveness from your lord: Verily, He is oft-Forgiving He will then send rain to you in abundance and give you increase in wealth and children and bestow on you gardens, and bestow on you rivers.” Surah Nuh, 10-12

Imam al-Qurtubi stated, ” In this verse, are clear proofs that asking for forgiveness is a cause of the descent of rizq/wealth and rain.” Tafsir al-Qurtubi, v18,p.302.

There is no doubt that one of the primary ways to increase our wealth is to seek Allah (SWT)’s forgiveness for our many sins. When we turn in repentance to Allah (SWT), Allah (SWT) rewards us by accepting our repentance and blessing us with worldly gain.

The scholars of Islam have laid down certain conditions for any repentance to be accepted by Allah (SWT) (SWT), these are as follow:

* The 1st and most important condition is that it is to be made purely for the sake of Allah (SWT). No worldly factor should influence a person’s motive for this religious act.
* The person should immediately stop performing the evil that he /she is doing.
* The person should make a sincere intention never to return to that sin.
* The person should feel true guilt and regret over performing the sin committed.
* The person should repent to his Lord both verbally and by action i.e. doing as many good deeds as you can to try to make up for your bad action or wipe it away.

And Allah (SWT) knows best.
