Hadith 17: Never Ending Forgiveness


On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), from among the things he reports from his Lord (mighty and sublime be He), is that he said:

“A servant [of Allah’s] committed a sin and said: ‘O Allah, forgive me my sin.’ And He (glorified and exalted be He) said: ‘My servant has committed a sin and has known that he has a Lord who forgives sins and punishes for them.’ Then he sinned again and said: ‘O Lord, forgive me my sin.’ And He (glorified and exalted be He) said: ‘My servant has committed a sin and has known that he has a Lord who forgives sins and punishes for them.’ Then he sinned again and said: ‘O Lord, forgive me my sin.’ And He (glorified and exalted be He) said: ‘My servant has committed a sin and has known that he has a Lord who forgives sins and punishes for sins. Do what you wish, for I have forgiven you.’”

It was related by Muslim (also by al-Bukhari).

Of course, this doesn’t mean that we can do whatever we want to do. It means that the forgivess of Allah Subhanawatallah is soo unlimited that even after repentance, if we commit a sin we should not give a second thought about asking for forgiveness for His mercy as God has said that His mercy over takes His Wrath (see Hadith # 13 of Spreading Hadith One Post Per Day) .
