The Mercy of Allah (God)

God Almighty is full of love and kindness to His creation. All blessings and goodness in this world and the next are clear proofs of His Mercy. Indeed, Islam teaches that God is more merciful toward us than our own mothers. How can it be otherwise, when some of God’s names and attributes include:

These names all indicate that God is characterized by mercy, goodness and generosity. They testify to the vastness and perfection of His Mercy, which He blesses all of His creation. This same creation is addressed by God, when He says, “O son of Adam, were you to come to Me with sins nearly as great as the earth and were you then to face Me, ascribing no partner to Me, I would bring you forgiveness nearly as great as the earth.”

Throughout life, people continually receive Allah’s blessings, be it good health, sight, hearing, nourishment, clean air, children, wealth and countless others. Some use their God-given gifts of intelligence and reasoning to acknowledge these blessings, grasp the purpose of their existence, and thereby submit themselves to Allah. Others, however, do not appreciate the Mercy of Allah toward their own selves, even though He feeds and sustains them despite their disobedience toward Him. They are given mobility, enjoyment, freedom of thought and action, despite their outright denial of Him. Their very existence would not be, were it not for the Mercy of Allah.

Ultimately, everyone has the free will to acknowledge their blessings, use them in a manner ordained by Allah (the Lord of mankind) and worship Him alone. Below, we have outlined a glimpse of such blessings, because

“... if you were to try and count the favours of Allah, you could not enumerate them. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.”

God Is Love

On A Day In The Knowledge from Above

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." -John 3:16

I wasn't planning to start with this verse or even mention it in this post but of course, God is unpredictable (in a good way), "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways," declares the LORD." -Isaiah 55:8 (It's amazing how many times this verse comes to mind). But I guess it ties into what I want to say.

Recently, as I mentioned before, I've been going through or at least was, going through a really rough time and my faith was affected, leading me to deviate in certain aspects. Anyway, as I was on my way back from a trip last week, it was like, eleven at night or something, a thought came to me. We could deviate so much, but if we repent, God is ALWAYS going to welcome us. Never is he going to turn us down. His love is so strong for us that He will welcome us always, just like the band Jesus Culture says, "Nothing can separate/ Even if I ran away/ Your love never fails". To further support this, "And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love.39 No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord." -Romans 8:38-39. Nothing. He will welcome us just like the father in the parable of the lost son, "But we had to celebrate and be glad, because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’” -Luke 15:32

I had this written on my phone when I was coming but now I know why God hadn't permitted me to copy and paste.
