AL-TAWWAB – THE GUIDE TO REPENTANCE

Al-Tawwab – The Guide to Repentance

The One Who is continuously turning (in forgiveness) to those that turn to Him (in repentance), Who forgives the sins of the penitent. Everyone who turns to Allaah sincerely, Allaah turns to them by firstly granting them the ability to repent and turning their hearts towards Him, and after this He turns to them by accepting their repentance and forgiving their errors.

(Quran, 4:64)
