What a Generous Lord!


Abdullah ibn Mushabbib al-Qahtāni

Look at the bounty of Allah Almighty as He makes the repentance of His servant preceded and followed by acceptance from Him, Exalted be He!

He initially turns to him as He permits, guides, and inspires him to repent. That is a favor from Allah, the Generous Lord, the Most Merciful, and the Accepting of Repentance.

Then, when he actually repents to Allah, He accepts his repentance and pardons his errors and sins. Allah Almighty says:

{...Then He turned to them so they could repent. Indeed, Allah is the Accepting of repentance, the Most Merciful.}

[Surat at-Tawbah: 118]

There is no god except Allah. Repentance is a favor from Him, from beginning to end.

So, the Accepting of Repentance is the One Who inspires and allows His servant to repent and then accepts his repentance, as a favor from Him.

The same holds true for good deeds. Allah inspires us and enables us to perform good deeds and then rewards us for them. So, it is all benevolence, bounty, and favor from Him.
