Do not suppose that a delay in judgment is a blessing while you persist in sin.
It is the harshest reckoning, as God the Exalted has said, ‘We give them a respite that they may increase in sin.’
Though my sins grow great and oppressive,
Your forgiveness of sins is greater still.
Yet as Your mercy holds me here,
I will need it more at the Resurrection!
