Al-Afu – The Forgiver

As for those who avoid the truly grave sins and shameful deeds —
even though they may sometimes stumble —
behold, thy Sustainer is abounding in forgiveness.
An-Najm 53:32, tr. Asad
Be cheerful, call for help
to the One who comes at the call,
saying, “Forgive us, You who love to forgive.
Rumi, Mathnawi 1:3252-3, tr. Helminski
