Everything I have written in this book -- including verses from the Qur’an, sayings from the Prophet (bpuh), verses of poetry, stories, and sayings of the wise --- calls you to start a new life, a life filled with hope of a good and blessed ending. However, you will not be able to benefit from this book without true determination, strong resolve, and a sincere desire to rid yourself of sadness, anxiety, and nervousness. And you will do well to remember that Allah singled out those Messengers that had a strong will:
(Therefore be patient [O` Muhammad] as did the Messengers of strong will…) (Quran 46: 35)
Adam (may peace be upon him) was not from them.
(….. but he forgot, and we found on his part no firm will-power)
(Qur’an 20: 115)
And so is the case with his sons. To imitate one’s father is not wrong, but one should not follow him into sin on the one hand, without following him in repentance on the other. And it is Allah alone who helps us.
