Benefits for this topic:
Lifts the pen for six hours: These six hours could refer to astrological time, or another time period.
The Muslim slave that errs or sins: Means the Angel won’t record the sin or error before the six hours passes. He simply delays writing it.
If the slave repents: This refers to the salve seeking sincere repentance for the sin or error he’s done.
The Angel doesn’t record it: Means the Angel on the left ignores writing it.
If the slave doesn’t ask Allah for forgiveness: This means the Angel on the left writes it down as one bad deed, unlike the Angel that records the good deeds. The Angel on the right writes down a good deed ten times.[ Faydul Qadir Al-Manawee]
