Ibn Ataa: Grace Emerges from Darkness!

Thus, honoring one with Allah’s Graces and Blessings is a great favor as He makes this act of honoring a means of telling the servant about His kindness and the mercy He showed to him.

One can realize the greatness of this favor conferred on him by Allah if he compares the following two cases.

Case 1: one who is comfortable with the sins and evil deeds he has fallen into; and

Case 2: one whose sins and evil deeds were themselves the cause behind the senses of alienation and resentment he found in his heart for them and the strong will he found therein to rid himself of them through seeking Allah’s Aid.

As in the first case, one was left on his own; to his self that urges to evil. Consequently, he would increase his evil deeds and enjoy his sinful actions. However, as for the one in case 2, sins were made hateful to him so that he would feel disinclined to continue doing them and would decide to abandon them all. Surely, this is a sign of Allah’s Grace and Kindness to that servant who should be more than grateful.
