excerpt from the 7th discourse from Futuh Al-Ghaib.

....Thus he was trained to practice praying for forgiveness, because that is the best state for a servant, and constant repentance, because this involves acknowledgment of sin and shortcoming–properties of human nature inherited from Adam (peace be upon him), the father of mankind.

...."Our Lord! We have wronged ourselves. If You do not forgive us, and have mercy on us, we shall surely be among the lost!" (7:23).

Sabree: our clothes were white and pure, glistening under the light of the sun. But now there are stains.

we all are stained.

but with time, surely the dirt and grim would fade off, as long as we don't roll around in the dirt anymore.
