Translation of persian quatrain):
Return back: return back: whichever you are: return back: You may be a disbliever or an idolater, please return back. Our this Abode is not an Abode of disappointment or despondency: If you have violated your repentance hundred times, please return back.
TAUBAH or Repentance literally means to return, come back, reunite after separation, and to incline towards Allah with a sense of penitence, Allah who has conferred on us the life and brought up us so benevolently, is considered in the highest joy and ecstasy when He finds His sinful bondsmen clinging to His feet with all the possible expressions of humility, contraption and regard.
It is narrated that once some military captives were brought to the Prophet (P.B.U.H). Among them was a woman who had lost her infant. She was so shocked by this unfortunate incident that whenever she came across any child, she stuck him with her breast to milk. When Prophet (P.B.U.H) caught a glance of this woman and her psychological upheaval, he asked his companions: Do you expect that such a woman may throw her baby by her own hands in the precipices of the fire? The companions commented: It is highly impossible. But, on the contrary, if her baby is thrown in the fire, she shall sacrifice her life to rescue her baby.
Then the prophet told : "Allah is more benevolent to His bondsmen than this mother to her child".
Don't make inordinate delay in repentance if you have happened to commit certain sins. Cling to the feet of Allah and repeatedly seek His pardon with all humility and total surrender, because this repentance acts as purifier to the soul and detergent to the heart. To repent with the high standard of sincerity, veracity and rectitude, maneuvers the life-track of the pennant. It is an ordained duty of a bondsman to redeem the primitive pledge which he concluded with Allah. There is no go for us but to fulfill. Please be vigilant about your physical and spiritual purity and self-rectification. In spite of all your efforts, if you cause infringement to this pledge and commit certain sins, please don't lose your heart in Allah, the most merciful, the most benevolent, but resort once again to the asylum of His mercy and bliss as Allah is not far away from you. He, indeed, is nearer to you than the jugular vein. Where you are one, you are seconded by Allah, and where you are two, the third one is Allah. As such, what you go to commit, it remains no secret to Allah and Allah is fully aware of what you abortively try to conceal. The terminus of all your acts and deeds is to Allah. He is omnipresent, omniscient and absolute authority. Call your Lord obsequiously: O Lord: In-deed, I am too weak and undoubtedly I have tyrannized myself but, I am sure, your mercy can absorb all my sins. O my Lord O the more benevolent to His bondsmen than seventy mothers: commiserate to me and allow me to come under the shelter of your pardon.
Don't link your penitence to the time of perpetration of sin, as the man is continuously in a need to penitence in view of the lapses that show no sign of abating on his part. Though our prophet (P.B.U.H) was innocent since the very day of his birth, and though he was the most beloved bondsman of Allah, and though he was the intercessor on the judgment Day, and though he was a bliss for all the world, he used to repeat the penitence for more than seventy or hundred times daily. The following prayer of penitence has been rated by our Prophet as the finest one:
"O Allah: verily you are my Lord: There is no God but you: You created me and therefore I am your bondsman, and I am bound to redeem my promise and pledge to the possible extent. I seek your pardon from my misdeeds. I acknowledge, all the bounties, you conferred on me and I also acknowledge my sins. So please pardon my sins. Verily you are the only who can pardon the sins".
Allah prescribes a recipe to eschew the nightmares:
"Those who are pious, when they face some hazards from the Satan, they remember (Allah) and turn perspicacious".
