Glad Tidings and Warning.







A tradition from the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alyhe wa sallam states that allah the exalted revealed to the prophet dawud,“O Dawud, give glad tidings to the sinners and give warning to the righteous.” he replied, “My lord, how is it that i should give glad tidings to the guilty, and warn those who do good?”

Allah the exalted said, “Give glad tidings to the sinner that no sin is too grave for me to forgive; and warn the righteous against admiring their own work [which leads to ostentation] for i do not hold someone strictly to account for their deeds, except that they are destroyed. O dawud, if you claim to love me, then remove the love of this world from your heart, for love for me and love for it cannot be combined in one heart. O Dawud, whoever has love for me stands in worship at night while the idle are sleeping, and remembers me in solitude while others are heedless, and is thankful for my blessings while others are neglectful.”

O Allah! Help us to stand a little in worship at night,and help us to sit for a while in your remembrance during the day and also help us to walk a mile in your way, every day.
