Praise be to Allaah.
Allaah is the Most Merciful, Most Compassionate, and He is the most Merciful of those who show mercy. His Mercy encompasses all things. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):
"and My Mercy embraces all things"
[Quran: al-A'raaf 7:156]
The mercy of Allaah is what will admit His believing slaves to Paradise on the Day of Resurrection. No one will ever enter Paradise because of his deeds alone, as the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: "No one's deeds will ever admit him to Paradise." They said, "Not even you, O Messenger of Allaah?" He said, "No, not even me, unless Allaah shower me with His Mercy. So try to be near to perfection. And no one should wish for death; he is either doing good so he will do more of that, or he is doing wrong so he may repent."
Narrated by al-Bukhaari & Muslim
So the believer must remain in a state between hoping for the mercy of Allaah and fearing His punishment, for Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):
"Declare (O Muhammad) unto My slaves, that truly, I am the Oft-Forgiving, the Most-Merciful.
And that My Torment is indeed the most painful torment"
Mashaallah here we have Skeikh Adnan Abdul Qadir giving us a brief insight into the vastness of Allahs mercy. May Allah make this lecture be a benefit for us after watching it and to aide us to better ourselves seek His forgiveness and mercy.
