The Mercy of Allah
Commentary of Surah Az-Zumar, Ayah 53Verse 53 opens with the words: قُلْ يَا عِبَادِيَ الَّذِينَ أَسْرَفُوا (O servants of Mine who have acted recklessly against their own selves, do not despair of Allah’s mercy. Surely, Allah will forgive all sins.). Taba` i, Said Ibn Jubayr reports from Sayyidna Ibn ` Abbas ؓ that there were some people who had killed a lot of people unjustly and had committed a lot of shameful acts. They came to the Holy Prophet ﷺ and submitted before him, ‘The religion you invite us to is, no doubt, very good, but we have a problem. We think about all those major sins we have already committed. Now if we were to become Muslims, do you hope that our repentance will be accepted?’ Thereupon, Allah Ta’ ala revealed this verse to the Holy Prophet ﷺ – reported by al-Bukhari in that sense (al-Qurtubi).
Surah Ash-Shuraa, Ayah 25The literal meaning of “taubah” is to return and turn to; in religious terminology, giving up and renunciation of any sin is called ` taubah’. There are three conditions for its being proper and genuine.

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي ظَلَمْتُ نَفْسِي ظُلْمًا كَثِيرًا وَلاَ يَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوبَ إِلاَّ أَنْتَ فَاغْفِرْ لِي مَغْفِرَةً مِنْ عِنْدِكَ وَارْحَمْنِي إِنَّكَ أَنْتَ الْغَفُورُ الرَّحِيمُ
O Allah, I have wronged myself much, and none forgives sins except You. So forgive me with forgiveness from You, and have mercy upon me, indeed, You are the Forgiving, the Merciful
رَبِّ اغْفِرْ لِي وَتُبْ عَلَىَّ إِنَّكَ أَنْتَ التَّوَّابُ الرَّحِيمُ
“My Lord, forgive me and pardon me; Indeed, You are the Most-Pardoning and Most-Forgiving”
