Sins more than the Foam on the Sea

Sins more than the Foam on the Sea



Abbas Abu Yahya

Abdullaah bin ‘Amr bin al-‘Aaas –Radi Allaahu anhu– said the Messenger of Allaah ﷺ said:

‘There is no person on earth who says:
لا إلهَ إلَّا اللهُ واللهُ أكبرُ
ولا حولَ ولا قوَّةَ إلَّا باللهِ

‘None is worthy of worship in truth except Allaah, and Allaah is the Greatest, and there is no capability nor is there any power except with Allaah, except that his sins are expiated even if they were more than the foam on the sea.’

[Tirmidhi declared it to be Hasan, & likewise Al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Jamia’ no. 5636]
