In the last post we spoke about when you become honest with Allah (swt), Allah will fulfill our wish.
Today, we’re going to mention a story of a man who made a fake repentance with Allah and didn’t keep his promise with Allah (swt).
Mansoor ibn Ammar said: I had a friend who was very abusive on himself and then repented, and I used to see him a lot doing worship and defamation, so I haven’t seen him for days.
I been told that: he is sick. I went to his house, his daughter came out and said: Who do you want? I said: So, so and then I entered and found him in the middle of the house, lying on his bed, his face blackened, his eyes gleamed, and his lips grew thicker.
I said to him and I am afraid of him: my brother increase of saying there is no god but Allah, and he opened his eyes and looked at me, and he lost consciousness.
Then I said to him the second time: my brother increase of saying there is no god but Allah and then said it the third time: He opened his eyes and said, “My brother Mansour, a barrier has been put between me and this word.
I said: There is no power but God Almighty, and then I said to him: O brother, where is that prayer and fasting and Tahjd that you used to do, he said:
This was for for Allah and my repentance was false, but I did that, so people can say about me and to remember me. And I was doing that as a hypocrisy of people, if I went home and were by myself, closed the door, windows and drink alcohol, and fought my Lord by these sins.
And I continued on this situation for some period of time then got ill. I called my daughter to bring me the Quran and said:
Oh God, In the sake of this great Quran, only if you have cured me, I promise you that I ‘ll never go back to sin.
And when I was cured I went back to what I had been of pleasure and pleasure and the devil made me forget the covenant that was between me and my Lord.
I continued on this situation for some period of time until I got ill and were about to die. I called my family and asked them to take me to the middle of the house.
As usual, I asked for Quran, read it and raised it with my hands my made a supplication to Allah and said:
O Allah, for the sake of the sanctity of what is in this Quran, If you have cured me, I promise you that I’lll never go back to sin.
Allah accepted my prayer and cured me from what I been suffering from, then I returned to what I had been doing of pleasure and sings again then I got ill with this illness.
I called my family and asked them to take me to the middle of the house as you see me now, then I made dua’a with Quran to read it, but I didn’t see a single letter!
I knew that God Almighty was angry at me and I lifted my head to the sky and said:
O Allah, for the sake of the sanctity of what is in this Quran, If you have cured me, I promise you that I’lll never go back to sin. O the might of earth and heaves.
Then I heard something like a caller saying to me:
تتوب عن الــذنوب إذا مرضتـــا وترجع للذنــوب إذا برئتـــا| فكـم من كـربة نجاك منهـــا وكم گشف البلاء إذا بليتــــا | أما تخشي بأن تأتي المنايا وأنت على الخطايا قد دهیتا
Repent for sins if you are ill and return to sins when you cured, How many of the sins that Allah rescued you from and how many time removed the scourge from you. Don’t you fear if death comes to you and you are on your sins.
Said Mansour bin Ammar: I left him and my eyes full to tears, once I reached the door step, I been told that he died.
