One might say: "I want to repent, but who can guarantee that Allah will forgive me, if I do so? I ant to follow the Straight Path, but I feel very hesitant. If I know for sure that Allah would forgive me, I would definitely repent." Ash-Shaykh Muhammad Salih al-Munajjid, may Allah reward him, gives a clear-cut response to such doubts and questionings in this booklet, undet the title I want to Repent, But...
In order that the response reassures everybody concerned, it is based on the Noble Qur'an and the Honorable Sunnah, quoting so many verses and hadiths confirming that Allah's mercy and forgiveness embrace all things, and are greater than all sins.
Among those quotations is Allah's syaing: "Say, Oh my Slaves who have transgressed against themselves (by comitting evil deeds and sins)! Despair not of the Mercy of Allah..." (Qur'an 39: 53).
For further knowledge about the significance of repentance as a precondition for forgiveness, your choice is in your hands.
