Its time to take heed and admit to our faults and turn back to Allah. We've all heard this before, 'forgive and forget' it's become clichéd, and hard to apply. Apologising in some people's eyes can be the easiest of tasks or the hardest in some cases. It takes sheer guts and determination to be the bigger person in a situation to say you're in the wrong and admit you're sorry. Haste is from the devil, so take your time before you say or do something you will later regret.
Istighfar, forgiveness is a vital remedy that all Muslims must adhere to, we must always be in a state of forgiveness, seeking refuge because without realising it but we may have committed a sin. Good things happen to good and bad people, though we shouldn't feel 'why has Allah afflicted me for..' it's not like we ask the same question when we have happiness in our life.
We should try and avoid any uncalled for behaviour, by staying in good company, speaking the truth, and trying our best to stick to the teachings of the Quran and Sunnah.
