The doors of repentance are open, and Allah is the All-Forgiving, the All-Me rciful, He accepts the repentance of His servants, and He forgives sins. Do not forget your share of the temporal world, and act with excellence, just as Allah favours you with excellence, getup, strive, endure and be patient!
