Say: O my servants! who have acted extravagantly against their own souls, do not despair of the Mercy of Allah ; Surely Allah forgives the faults altogether; surely He is the Forgiving, the Merciful.' A few points must be noted from the above verse. Firstly, Allah says, ‘O my servant’ and not ‘O sinners!’ Even though he is addressing the sinners he addresses them as ‘my servants’. So that the hopelessness of the servants may be transformed into hope in His Mercy. Secondly, he says, “Who have acted extravagantly.” This denotes a soft approach. Allah does not say ‘O you who have acted blatantly,’ So that the sinners may not lose hope of obtaining pardon. The third point to be noted is that the Almighty Allah has told the sinners, “Do not despair of the Divine Mercy.” The use of a negative term signifies the prohibition of hopelessness. Also it means that to lose hope regarding salvation is Haraam. The fourth point is that Allah did not stop at this, He further adds, “Surely Allah forgives the faults altogether,” signifying that the statement covers all the sins. Fifth Point: The addition of the word ‘altogether’ at the end signifies that the statement includes all sins without any exception. Sixth Point: The last point is that at the end of the verse, Allah repeats, “Surely He is the forgiving, the merciful,” to stress upon the fact that Allah desires and wishes to forgive those who repent.
