What is the Point of Repentance?

What is the point of repentance? Seeking forgiveness after wronging someone can be difficult, but how do we seek redemption from the Lord of the Universe? 


How do we know that our repentance has been accepted? And if God is All-Powerful, All-Knowing, and the Most Merciful, why do we have to seek forgiveness in the first place?


We explore these questions and more in episode 8 of DoubleTake with Sr. Roohi Tahir, author of the Yaqeen Institute paper, “Repentance, Redemption, & Salvation: An Islamic Framework.”
