Allah has described Himself in the Quran through His Names and Attributes.

أَفَلَا يَتُوبُونَ إِلَى اللَّهِ وَيَسْتَغْفِرُونَهُ وَاللَّهُ غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ

Will they not turn to Allah in repentance and seek His forgiveness? And Allah is All-Forgiving, Most Merciful.

―Quran 5:74

The most beautiful names belong to Allah: so call on Him by them

―Quran, 7:180

Most of the sins of the children of Adam are on their tongues.

Most of your sins are because of your tongues

― Prophet Muhammad, Peace Be Upon Him.

al-Mu’jam al-Kabīr 10300

وَالَّذِينَ عَمِلُوا السَّيِّئَاتِ ثُمَّ تَابُوا مِن بَعْدِهَا وَآمَنُوا إِنَّ رَبَّكَ مِن بَعْدِهَا لَغَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ

As for those who commit sins, and then repent afterwards and believe — your Lord, thereafter, is Forgiving and Merciful

Quran 7:153

If one falls into sin, all that is required is sincere repentance followed by seeking God’s forgiveness . When a person sins he or she pushes themselves away from the mercy of God, however sincere repentance brings a person back to God.

good deeds wipe out evil deeds

( Surely good deeds wipe out evil deeds )

Quran 11:114

When God sees the sincere repentance from one of the believers — a person who truly turns God with both fear and hope — He not only forgives the sin, but He replaces the sins with rewardable good deeds. This is from God’s infinite mercy.

The door to forgiveness is always open

( Then your Lord — for those who did evil because of ignorance, then repented after that and corrected themselves — surely your Lord is, after all that, Most-Forgiving, Very-Merciful ) Quran 16:119

always remember this

( do not despair of the mercy of Allah . Indeed, Allah forgives all sins. Indeed, it is He who is the Forgiving, the Merciful ) Quran 39:53

“ O son of Adam, so long as you call upon Me and ask of Me, I shall forgive you for what you have done, and I shall not mind. O son of Adam, were your sins to reach the clouds of the sky and were you then to ask forgiveness of Me, I would forgive you “

Prophet Muhammad pbuh in a Hadith…

your Lord is full of forgiveness

( And indeed, your Lord is full of forgiveness for the people despite their wrongdoing ) Quran 13:6

Never give up hope of Allah’s Mercy :

( Never give up hope of Allah’s Mercy ) Quran 12:87

( My Lord! Forgive and have mercy, for You are the best of those who show mercy ) Quran 23:118

Always have hope in Allah Mercy. Even when you think you don’t deserve it. The Almighty is there to forgive. And forgive. Remember, He loves those who turn to Him. Every single one of them. So what’s holding you back?

Just because you fall or commit a sin, doesn’t mean you’re evil. It shows you’re human. But how you fix yourself thereafter is what matters most. Get back up and turn to the Almighty as soon as you can. With each fall, repent and never give up.
