Allah Forgives the Sins

Ibn Umar (radi Allahu anhum) reported: I heard the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) saying, “A believer will be brought close to his Rubb on the Day of Resurrection and enveloping him in His Mercy, He (Subhanahu Wa Ta’alaa) will make him confess his sins by saying: ‘Do you remember (doing) this sin and this sin?’ He will reply: ‘My Rubb, I remember.’ Then He (Subhanahu Wa Ta’alaa) will say: ‘I covered it up for you in the life of world, and I forgive it for you today.’ Then the record of his good deeds will be handed to him.”

[Sahih al-Bukhari and Muslim]


This Hadith tells us about the believers who will be treated with special favour by Allah. (May Allah include us among them.) It also shows that the admittance of the sins leads to having them forgiven by Allah. The Hadith also encourages us to cover the sins of the believers as best we can.

And Allah Knows Best!
