Title: A man who commits a sin
Post by: bamalli on November 23, 2013, 09:54:35 PM


It is reported that a man came to Alī Allāh be pleased with him and asked, What do you think about a man who committed a sin? He replied, He must seek Allāhs forgiveness and repent to Him. [The man] said, He did that, but then sinned again? [Alī] said, He must seek Allāhs forgiveness and repent to Him. The man again said, He did that, but returned to sin. [Alī] said, He must seek Allāhs forgiveness and repent to Him. The man said for the fourth time, He did, but then sinned again. Alī then said, Until when? Then he said, He must seek Allāhs forgiveness and repent to Him; and not give up until it is Shayān who is defeated [overcome].
