I wonder at a man who loses hope of salvation (ya’qnot) and with him is the seeking of forgiveness (alistighfar)

‘ajibtu liman ya’qnut wa ma’ahu alistighfar

عجبت لمن يقنط ومعه الاستغفار

Imam Ali (as) Najul balagha wisdom 87, part 4, page 675, alshiekh muhammad ‘abda -dar albalagha, bierut

  1. Salaams again Katib,

    Al hamdu lillah! I read this saying after the ‘Whoever wants to know his station’ one. I do ask God for His forgiveness and to Him do I repent.
