The sins that we carry on our shoulders, the wrongs that we do every single day of our lives, can only be lifted when we seek repentance.
However, sometimes, it is easier said than done.
Seeking repentance is just the beginning of a whole journey that will bring you through small successes and sometimes, major failures.
I’m sure all of us have experienced the utter disappointment in our hearts when we relapsed a bad habit. Sometimes, that feeling will bring us to the point where we almost want to give up.
So, should we give in and give up?
In Islam, we believe that all of our prayers will be answered one way or another. However, they differ in the ways that it can be answered.
What we can and should do is to make an intention to repent, pray to Allah SWT and have deep and strong faith that he listened and that he will reply.
He will assist you in what you are searching for if you are sincere in your repentance.
Maybe I have doubted the power of a supplication all this while and maybe what I can do now is to have renewed faith and be more conscious of my intentions, especially those related to repentance.
Do I really want to repent?
