The Power of Repentance

Undoubtedly one of the best lectures I've heard thus far, masha Allah! 

Syakh Yasir Qadhi is currently a doctorate candidate in Religious Studies at Yale University. Take time to listen to his speech, and trust me, you want to hear his last few narrations of hadiths (cue - 35:00 - 45:00) - totally worth the wait! Even the Q&As, masha Allah they were soo, so interesting especially the ones asked by non-Muslims - may Allah increase all of us in knowledge :)

Excerpt from the speech : When Satan was expelled from Heaven, Satan challenged Allah and said, "I swear by You O'Allah, that I will misguide each and every one of them (mankind) for as long as they have a spirit within their bodies." And Allah replied, "And I swear by my own I'zzah (honour), that I will continue to forgive them, for as long as they turn towards me in repentance."

"O Allah, You are All-Forgiving and you love to forgive - forgive me for I have sinned and increase me in knowledge and bless me with the blessing of true repentance."
