Same Response – “Seek Forgiveness”


A man complained to al-Hasan Al Basri about a drought, and he said to him •►“Pray to Allaah for forgiveness.” Another man complained to him of poverty and he said to him•► “Pray to Allaah to forgive you.” Another man said to him: “Pray to Allaah to bless me with a child.” He said•►“Pray to Allaah for forgiveness.” Another complained to him that his garden was dry. He said to him•► “Pray to Allaah for forgiveness.”

We asked him about his giving the same answer for all problems and he said
•►“This is not my personal opinion, for Allaah says in Soorat Nooh: 

۞“Ask forgiveness of your Lord. Indeed, He is ever a Perpetual Forgiver;He will send [rain from] the sky upon you in [continuing] showers And give you increase in wealth and children and provide for you gardens and provide for you rivers.” ۞

-Tafseer al-Qurtubi, 18/301-302.
