In Surah Al Nisaa, Allah swt explains how He gives us an opportunity to be closer to Him after doing an evil or wrong.


وَمَن يَعْمَلْ سُوٓءًا أَوْ يَظْلِمْ نَفْسَهُۥ

ثُمَّ يَسْتَغْفِرِ ٱللَّهَ يَجِدِ ٱللَّهَ غَفُورًۭا رَّحِيمًۭا ١١٠

Whoever commits evil or wrongs themselves?

 then seeks Allah’s forgiveness will certainly find Allah All-Forgiving, Most Merciful.

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, The Clear Quran

We all know Allah is most merciful and loves those who seek His forgiveness.

Many of us do some form of evil or wrong ourselves. But we sometimes forget to seek His forgiveness.

Here Allah swt reminds us as his slave, He is ready to forgive us. But we must seek forgiveness after doing evil or wrong.

It is reported that Prophet Muhammad pbuh used to seek 70 times or 100 times forgiveness everyday.

So let us before going to bed seek His forgiveness or better after every Salah, we seek His forgiveness.

May Allah give us the capacity to seek His forgiveness. Ameen

With Salaam and Regards
