Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) said, “Every one of my followers will be forgiven except those who expose (openly) their wrongdoings. An example of this is that of a man who commits a sin at night which Allah has covered for him, and in the morning, he would say (to people): “I committed such and such sin last night,’ while Allah had kept it a secret. During the night Allah has covered it up but in the morning he tears up the cover provided by Allah Himself.”
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim]
From Anas that The Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said:
‘O Allaah there is nothing that is easy except that You made it easy, and You can make this difficulty easy if You so wish to’
(Allaahumma la sahala illa ma ja’alta sahlan wa anta taj’all al-huzna itha shitta sahlan)
اللهم لا سهلَ إلا ما جعلتَه سهلاً وأنتَ تجعلُ الحزنَ إذا شئتَ سهلاََ
