Some Sins may Erase Some Good Deeds (*conditions apply*)

The Strength of Yaqeen in Allah SWT

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم قَالَ يَـٰمَرۡيَمُ أَنَّىٰ لَكِ هَـٰذَا‌ۖ قَالَتۡ هُوَ مِنۡ عِندِ ٱللَّهِ‌ۖ   إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ يَرۡزُقُ مَن يَشَآءُ بِغَيۡرِ حِسَابٍ He said: “O Maryam (Mary)!

We know who helped here. Passive form: He was helped. We don’t know who helped him here. Notice: the active form has the […]
