Hope

Posted on February 23, 2007. Filed under: 101 - Ruboobiyyah and Uloohiyyah |

There are 2 types of spiritual hope.

1) Forgiviness of sins.

2) Acceptance of good deeds.

Both of these are unique to Allah (swt) only.

“And who forgives the sins except Allah.” (Aali-‘Imraan, 3:135)

“Those who believe and those who emigrate and strive hard in the cause of Allah, it is these who hope for Allah’s mercy; And Allah is Most Forgiving Merciful.” (Al-Baqarah, 2:218)

“And slacken not in seeking these people. If you suffer, they too suffer even as you suffer. But you hope from Allah what they hope not. And Allah is All-Knowing, Wise.” (An-Nisaa, 4:104)

“He said, ‘None despairs of his Lord’s mercy, except those who are astray?” (Al-Hijr:56)

“The greatest of all major sins are shirk, feeling safe from the plotting of Allah, giving up hope in Allah’s Mercy, and feeling despair from the help of Allah.” (Ibn Mas’ood)

“Let none of you die unless he has good expectations from Allah.” (Muslim)
