Men are sinners. No question about that. The CREATOR knows for sure.

But He is not harsh to His creation. Yes, we sin, but we should ask for His forgiveness and do good things, to compensate for our wrong doing.

There are a lot of do’s and don’ts in committing a sin and in asking for Allah’s forgiveness.

One prophetic saying that always brings tears to my eyes is this,

عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ لَمَّا قَضَى اللَّهُ الْخَلْقَ كَتَبَ فِي كِتَابِهِ فَهُوَ عِنْدَهُ فَوْقَ الْعَرْشِ إِنَّ رَحْمَتِي غَلَبَتْ غَضَبِي

صحيح البخاري كتاب بدء الخلق باب ما جاء في قول الله تعالى وهو الذي يبدأ الخلق ثم يعيده وهو أهون عليه

صحيح مسلم كتاب التوبة باب في سعة رحمة الله تعالى وأنها سبقت غضبه

Abu Huraira reported:

The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “When Allah completed the creation, he wrote in his book with him upon the throne: Verily, my mercy prevails over my wrath.
