Pearls of Wisdom: No.51

“Food for the Soul”

SUBJECT:  VIRTUE AFTER VICE

Allah, The Most Exalted, says:

“Indeed good actions eradicate bad actions. This is a reminder for people who pay heed.” (Qur’an Surah 11, Verse 114)

The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) is reported to have said:

”Be conscious of Allah wherever you are. Follow the bad deed with a good one to erase it, and engage others with beautiful character.” (Hadith - Tirmidhi)

Note: Virtue is a cleanser and can remove the stains of sins.  We often respond to a sin by putting ourselves in a figurative corner and abusing ourselves psychologically until we get over that sin. This is not what Allah Ta’ala wants from us. Yes, we should feel guilty, have a level of regret and MOST IMPORTANTLY repent, but it should not stop us from moving forwa rd in good deeds. People use their sins as an excuse to stay behind. Do not allow sin to stop yourself from all the other good that you could be involved in.

The response to a sin should not be to wait, but rather to race to do something good so the sin can be erased. Our attitude should be proactive and positive. We should always have hope that Allah Ta’ala can, and will, have mercy on us as long as we keep struggling and pushing forward.
