We all mess up. Sometimes we mess up big time. Some days, we feel like we’re doing nothing right. Mistake after mistake; slip up after slip up- we may feel like we’re on a slippery path just heading downwards. From maybe missing Fajr, to letting our tongue slip when talking to our parents, or backbiting or hurting someone- or maybe doing all of this in one day- we start to feel like man “I just suck, I can’t do anything right” and it’s very easy to start to despair. The weights of our sins start to become really heavy on us, and we continue to sink in this despair and disappointment which can actually lead us away from Allah. We start to think, how could Allah forgive me? But Allah says and commands all of us:
“Say, “O My servants who have transgressed against themselves [by sinning], do not despair of the mercy of Allah . Indeed, Allah forgives all sins. Indeed, it is He who is the Forgiving, the Merciful.” [39:53]
Allah commands us not to despair from His mercy. Ustadh Nouman in his tafseer of Surah Zumar paints this situation as if there’s a scale. On one side of the scale are a person’s deeds and on the other side of the scale is Allah’s mercy. Which one would outweigh the other? Of course, Allah mercy’s is greater than any bad deed we could every commit because there is no limit to Allah, Allah is greater and above everything and His mercy is always greater than our sins. Once we fall into despair, we sink deeper and deeper. But as Muslims, we are a people of hope, we are commanded to not despair. Fall down? Get back up, over and over again.
One thing to note about this ayah is that it ends by Allah saying that he is extremely forgiving, always merciful. Allah doesn’t say that he is ALWAYS forgiving because then people would do whatever they want without a care, thinking that Allah will forgive them anyways. But rather Allah says, that he is extremely forgiving and ALWAYS merciful and through this endless mercy, the doors for forgiveness are always open.
And one amazing thing that always gets me is you know how when you love someone, you don’t want to ever hurt them or disappoint them. But we are all human, so sometimes we mess up even in our relationships with others. But when a relationship goes through many mistakes, it takes a toll. You hurt someone one, twice, three times- that relationship won’t ever be the same again, that person won’t really see you the same. But it’s so amazing because with Allah it’s not like that. We sin all the time, we make mistakes all the time but even then, Allah says that He forgives all sins if we turn to Him sincerely. May Allah make us people are constantly, sincerely turning back to Him inshAllah.

"O son of Adam, so long as you call upon Me and ask of Me, I shall forgive you for what you have done, and I shall not mind. O son of Adam, were your sins to reach the clouds of the sky and were you then to ask forgiveness of Me, I would forgive you."-Hadith Qudsi

One thing I’ve realized is that as you grow up, the amount of responsibility, the amount of things you have to worry about or think about exponentially increases. The bliss of being carefree in childhood being is definitely long gone and as you leave your teenage years behind and start entering adulthood and early 20’s…almost everyone goes through this crisis or struggle to figure out what and how they want to structure the rest of their life. What degree do I want? What will I do with that degree? Do I want to go to graduate school? Do I want to get married now? How am I going to go about that? Do I want to have kids? What city do I want to live permanently? Where do I want to settle down? There are endless questions, endless things to thing about and plan out but sometimes we get so caught up in the planning and piecing together of our future that we forget who really is in charge of our affairs. 

Allah says in the Qur’an: “And rely upon Allah ; and sufficient is Allah as Disposer of affairs.” [33:3] 

In this ayah Allah commands us to rely upon, trust Him because He is enough, He is sufficient as a “wakeel”. Linguistically, a wakeel is someone who one relies on to take care of things. You can thing of a wakeel as a trustee, kind of like a lawyer who you put forth your matter or concern to, expecting them to take care of it. Allah is wakeel, Allah is the one who takes care of everything, He is the one that’s in charge of our affairs, and who better to leave all our affairs up to except Allah- who is Hakeem (the Most Wise), who is Raheem (the Most Merciful)? SubhanAllah this is very comforting to remember. 

No matter how confused we are in our life, no matter how many worries we have, we have to remember that Allah is the wakeel, Allah is the one that is controlling our affairs. We must of course put effort in, but realize that we are not in control of anything. As human beings we are very limited, we only see what is now but Allah has knowledge of now and the future so we trust Allah, realizing that only He is the one we can completely and totally rely on. If it’s best for us in this dunya and the next we pray to Allah to guide us towards it, and if its not good for us in this dunya and the next, we pray Allah to protect us from it.

The Prophet (sws) would make a very powerful du’a and plead and call out to Allah and say: “O Allāh, it is Your mercy that I hope for, so do not leave me in charge of my affairs even for a blink of an eye, and rectify for me all of my affairs. None has the right to be worshiped except You.” Ameen! InshAllah we too can incorporate this du’a into our daily lives and be amongst those that rely on Allah alone inshAllah!
