In this #MuftiMenk explains that how seeking #forgiveness for sins earns the mercy of Allah and Allah (swt) deletes bad but only the continues by giving better than a clean slate to His worshippers from the hadiths and the verses of the Quran. Mufti Menk also makes mention of four conditions of seeking of forgiveness for sins including recurring ones and how Allah (swt) replaces bad deeds (#sin) with the good deeds done by worshippers.
“Islam deletes that bad which you did before it. The good is carried forward; the bad is deleted. It’s better than the day you were born. The day you were born there was no good, no bad; the day you accepted Islam, the good continues and the bad is deleted”. – Mufti Menk
