Benefit: Keep it Real and Avoid Fake Public Tawbah
In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
Ustādh Mūsá Richardson
reflects upon the trend today of generalised "public tawbah" whereby a person uses vague speech such as "if I have offended anyone" or "if i've ever transgressed against anyone" to announce his supposed correction to the world. An encouragement is made to follow the legislated means of seeking forgiveness, and guidelines are given towards truly righting wrongs.
