From the Consequence of Seeking Forgiveness is Enjoyment of Life

Allaah Ta’ala said:
وَأَنِ اسْتَغْفِرُوا رَبَّكُمْ ثُمَّ تُوبُوا إِلَيْهِ يُمَتِّعْكُمْ مَتَاعًا حَسَنًا إِلَى أَجَلٍ مُسَمًّى

《And seek forgiveness from your Lord, and turn to Him in repentance, that He may grant you good enjoyment, for an appointed term 》[Surah Hud: 3]

Imam Muhammad Ameen al-Shanqiti (d.1393 A.H.) Rahimahullaah said:

‘This noble Ayaah shows that seeking forgiveness and repenting to Allaah Ta’ala from sins is a means by which Allaah will grant enjoyment for the one who seeks forgiveness and repents.
       《مَتَاعًا حَسَنًا إِلَى أَجَلٍ مُسَمًّى 》
《A good enjoyment, for an appointed term.》

This is because Allaah made the consequence of seeking forgiveness, a life of good enjoyment.

As for repentance, the consequence is a recompense and reward.

The apparent intent of 《good enjoyment》 is: much Rizq (provision), a good life and well-being in the Duniya (worldly life).

The intent of《an appointed term》 means until death.’

*⭕ مـن فوائـد الإستغفـار

 قوله تعالى: ‏( *وَأَنِ اسْتَغْفِرُوا رَبَّكُمْ ثُمَّ تُوبُوا إِلَيْهِ يُمَتِّعْكُمْ مَتَاعًا حَسَنًا إِلَى أَجَلٍ مُسَمًّى.)*

 قال الإمام الشنقيطـي رحمه الله :

ثُمَّ تُوبُوا إِلَيْهِ يُمَتِّعْكُمْ مَتَاعًا حَسَنًا إِلَى أَجَلٍ مُسَمًّى.

هَذِهِ الْآيَةُ الْكَرِيمَةُ تَدُلُّ عَلَى أَنَّ الِاسْتِغْفَارَ وَالتَّوْبَةَ إِلَى اللَّهِ تَعَالَى مِنَ الذُّنُوبِ سَبَبٌ لِأَنْ يُمَتِّعَ اللَّهُ مَنْ فَعَلَ ذَلِكَ مَتَاعًا حَسَنًا إِلَى أَجَلٍ مُسَمًّى ; لِأَنَّهُ رَتَّبَ ذَلِكَ عَلَى الِاسْتِغْفَارِ وَالتَّوْبَةِ تَرْتِيبَ الْجَزَاءِ

 وَالظَّاهِرُ أَنَّ الْمُرَادَ بِالْمَتَاعِ الْحَسَنِ: سَعَةُ الرِّزْقِ، وَرَغَدُ الْعَيْشِ، وَالْعَافِيَةُ فِي الدُّنْيَا، 

 وَأَنَّ الْمُرَادَ بِالْأَجَلِ الْمُسَمَّى: الْمَوْتُ
