Muslim Quote of the Day

They asked her: 'When sinners repent, does God accept their repentence, or not?' She replied: 'Sinners can only repent if God gives them a spirit of repentence; and when God gives people this spirit, he accepts their repentance. But if people try to repent without receiving this spirit, he will not accept their repentance.'

-Attar, "Rabi'a"
