The Method Of Making Tawbah

طريقة التوبة عن اقتراف المعاصي

From ‘Abdul-‘Azeez Bin ‘Abdullaah Bin Baaz to the respected noble brother […], may Allaah grant him success.

Salaamun ‘Alaikum wa Rahmatullaahi wa Barakaatuh.

To Proceed:

Then to inform you of the receipt of your letter [which was]undated - may Allaah confer upon you His Guidance – and what it contains from the clarification of you falling into some prohibitions and that you are remorseful for what you did and that you ask to be guided to the correct way, to the end of what you mentioned - as is known. Furthermore, we inform you that we counsel you with the incumbent necessity of making

[1] Tawbah (repentance)

and to have

[2] An-Nadm (regret/remorse) for the error that which you fell into

and to have

[3] Al-'Azm as-Saadiq (true and firm resolve) that you will not return to that [sin]

accompanied with

[4] Al-Istighfaar (seeking much forgiveness) and Al-'Amal As-Saaleh (righteous actions).

And receive glad-tidings of goodness and a good end, as Allaah, free is He and far removed from all imperfections, the Most High says:

{وَإِنِّي لَغَفَّارٌ لِمَنْ تَابَ وَآمَنَ وَعَمِلَ صَالِحًا ثُمَّ اهْتَدَى}

And verily, I am indeed Forgiving to him who repents, believes (in My Oneness, and associates none in worship with Me) and does righteous good deeds, and then remains constant in doing them, (till his death). (Ta-Ha 20:82)

May Allaah grant us and you success in achieving that which pleases Him.

Wassalaamu ‘Alaikum wa Rahmatullaahi wa Barakaatuh

من عبد العزيز بن عبد الله بن باز إلى حضرة الأخ المكرم . . . . . . . . . . . . . وفقه الله . سلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته . أما بعد : فأفيدكم بوصول كتابكم الكريم المؤرخ بدون . وصلكم الله بهداه . وما تضمنه من بيان اقترافك لبعض المحرمات وأنك نادم على ما فعلت وتطلب دلالتك إلى طريق الصواب إلى آخر ما ذكرتم - كان معلوما . ونخبرك بأننا نوصيك بلزوم التوبة والندم على ما بدر منك والعزم الصادق ألا تعود في ذلك مع كثرة الاستغفار والعمل الصالح ، وأبشر بالخير وحسن العاقبة ، كما قال الله سبحانه وتعالى : {وَإِنِّي لَغَفَّارٌ لِمَنْ تَابَ وَآمَنَ وَعَمِلَ صَالِحًا ثُمَّ اهْتَدَى}[1] وفقنا الله وإياك لما يرضيه .

والسلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته .
