The State of Repentance – Madaarij as-Saalikeen

Author: Imam Ibn al Qayyim al Jawziyyah

The state of repentance, Tawbah, is at the beginning, the middle and the end of all states of submission to the will of Allah. The servant who seeks the pleasure of Allah never abandons tawbah. He remains in the state of tawbah until his death. Whatever his state of belief, the servant makes tawbah his constant companion. Thus, tawbah is at the beginning and at the end of his servitude to his Creator. His need for tawbah at the end, just as at the beginning, overrides, and supersedes all other needs. Allah Subhana Wa Ta’ala says:

And turn to Allah altogether (make tawbah), O you who believe so that you may succeed.
