Prohibited Statement of ‘Forgive Me If You Want’

Prohibited Statement of ‘Forgive Me If You Want’

Shaykh Sulayman ibn Abdullaah ibn Muhammad ibn AbdulWahhab [1233H] said:

❝Since a slave of Allaah cannot do without the Mercy of Allaah and His Forgiveness even for the blink of an eye, rather he is very needy in his essence to the One Who is not needy in His essence, just like Allaah [تعالى] said:

يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ أَنتُمُ الْفُقَرَاء إِلَى اللَّهِ وَاللَّهُ هُوَ الْغَنِيُّ الْحَمِيدُ

﴾O mankind! it is you who stand in need of Allaah, but Allaah is Rich [Free of all wants and needs], Worthy of all praise.﴿ [Fatir: 15]

Allaah prohibited the statement of ‘forgive me if You want’, since this statement has in it a deception of not needing the forgiveness of Allaah and His mercy, and that is opposite to Tawheed.❞

[Tayseer al-Azeez al-Hameed, (Page: 491) | Translated By Abbas Abu Yahya Miraath al-Anbiyya]
The Prophet ﷺ said:

“Make things easy and do not make things difficult. Give glad tidings and do not repel people..”
