because we will not be asked, "what happened?"
we will be asked, "what did you do?"
once the curtain parts and once the ghaib becomes visible, there is no taubah. too late. the door of taubah remains open as long as the ghaib is ghaib. but the moment the ghaib becomes visible, the moment we see the angels, the door of taubah is closed.
so when is the time to make taubah?
now. right now.
right now as we are sitting here, make taubah. sincerely and seriously make taubah and ask Allah SAW, "O Allah, forgive us for what we had done. we did it without knowing, we did not do it because we are rebellious against You, we did not do it because we want to irritate You or anger You. we did it because we are weak, we did it because we are enslaved to our nafs and syaitaan. O Allah, we make taubah. insyaAllah, O Allah help us, we will not go back to those things again no matter who said what."
