Every day, my father would read a seventh [of the Qur.aan], and he would take a very light sleep after ‘Ishaa. He would then [awake and] stand [the night] in prayer and supplicate until the morning.
O people who sin against Allaah, do not be misled by the extent of Allaah’s Gentleness over you, [rather] be aware of His Anger…
O Allaah, if you forgive me, then you are qualified to do so, and if you punish me, then I am qualified to be so.
Which of the two is best: [that] I glorify Allaah ( سبحان الله ), or [that] I seek forgiveness from Allaah ( أستغفر الله )?
