However, when we admit that what we are doing is wrong and feel the guilt, then we stand a much better chance of attaining the Mercy of the Almighty.
This is because the guilt combined with the love of the Almighty will ultimately lead us to repenting from our misdeeds. For this reason we should never justify our wrong doings but rather choose to admit that we are wrong.
Repentance too, should not be delayed once we feel the guilt and realise what we have done.
In fact we should search through our deeds regularly to look for anything that is displeasing to the Almighty and change it with true repentance.
