the result of seeking forgiveness and repentance

Source: Tafseer as-Sa’dee

“And (commanding you): Seek the forgiveness of your Lord, and turn to Him in repentance, that He may grant you good enjoyment, for a term appointed, and bestow His abounding Grace to every owner of grace”
~ Surah Hood, 11:3

Shaykh ‘Abd ur-Rahmaan as-Sa’dee (rahimahullaah) comments:

“{And (commanding you): Seek the forgiveness of your Lord} from the sins that came from you, {and turn to Him in repentance} in the lifetime that you are facing, by returning to Him with repentance, and by refraining from that which Allaah hates and turning to that which He loves and is pleased with. Then He mentions what will result from seeking forgiveness and repentance, so He says: {that He may grant you good enjoyment} meaning: He will give you from His provision that which you will enjoy and benefit from, {for a term appointed} meaning: until the time of your death; {and bestow His abounding Grace to every owner of grace}, meaning: He will grant the people who do good and are righteous from His Grace – as a reward for their doing good – the occurrence of what they love and removal of what they hate.”
