If I realise that my most precious and irreplaceable outfit has been stained, what would I do? I would try every possible method to remove the stain. Similarly sins are ugly stains that spoil our hearts and minds and what can be more precious for a true believer than a pure heart and a sound intellect. So how can we remove these invisible stains of sins from us? Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) gives us a simple solution in His Book, “Verily, the good deeds remove the evil deeds. That is a reminder for the mindful.” (Surah Hud:114)
