Myth: I doubt my sins will ever be forgiven
This one’s gonna be super-short.
You must have read those memes where they say life should have an Escape key so you could live on while keeping a finger on it. Or that you could just pull a Ctrl-Alt-Del to start all over…
While you may not be able to reboot yourself, but you can do something to that effect. What if I told you, you can Ctrl-Z out of your sins? Yep, you heard that right. You can undo your messes. That key-combo is one of our many favourites too. Life-saving actually. Blew up an entire report? Undo it back. When you can’t fathom how the heck something disappeared off the screen or why your work suddenly looks so warped, you hit Ctrl-Z frantically.
So– here’s the ultimate life-hack:
Surely, good deeds erase bad deeds. That is a reminder for the mindful. (11:114)
UNDO ftw! Right a wrong with a good deed. Not that you’ll need a “DIY 101 imaginative ways to do a good deed” self-help guide.
And that’s not it. In Ramadan, the reward for every good deed is increased from 10 to 700-fold or more. (Muslim) You don’t just get a clean slate, you’re also rewarded for it!
Moreover, this “Undo” feature is revolutionary. Often, you find yourself limited and can’t correct more than 10 blunders. But well, you’ve hit the jackpot with this one. You can wipe out unlimited mistakes in this limited time offer.
Ramadan is a month in which all past sins are forgiven for three reasons:
Whoever fasts Ramadan out of faith and in the hope of reward, his previous sins will be forgiven. (Bukhari and Muslim)
Whoever spends the nights of Ramadan in prayer out of faith and in the hope of reward, his previous sins will be forgiven. (Bukhari and Muslim)
Whoever spends Laylat al-Qadr in prayer out of faith and in the hope of reward, will be forgiven his previous sins.” (Bukhari and Muslim)
This sounds way better than Esc, don’t you think?
