SubhanAllah! How easy you get the PAST SINS Forgiven except for those BLIND followers!
Narrated Abu Huraira: Rasulullah Sallillahu Alaihi Wa Sallam said,
“When the Imam says ‘Amin’, then you should all say ‘Amin’, for the angels say ‘Amin’ at that time, and he whose ‘Amin’ coincides with the ‘Amin’ of the angels, all his past sins will be forgiven.”
حَدَّثَنَا عَلِيُّ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ، حَدَّثَنَا سُفْيَانُ، قَالَ الزُّهْرِيُّ حَدَّثَنَاهُ عَنْ سَعِيدِ بْنِ الْمُسَيَّبِ، عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ
إِذَا أَمَّنَ الْقَارِئُ فَأَمِّنُوا، فَإِنَّ الْمَلاَئِكَةَ تُؤَمِّنُ، فَمَنْ وَافَقَ تَأْمِينُهُ تَأْمِينَ الْمَلاَئِكَةِ غُفِرَ لَهُ مَا تَقَدَّمَ مِنْ ذَنْبِهِ ”

Al-Hamdulillah! How many ways Allah, Ar-Rahmanir Raheem has blessed those who believe in Him!
How many ways He, Al-Gaffar set the events and occasions to forgive His Ebadh!
SubhanAllah! Al-Hamdulillah! Al-Hamdulillahi Kaseera!
But again, unfortunately, we have an Ummah who do not use intellect.
Most of them do not even bother to learn Deen and the ones who learn Deen they are taught by sealing off their brain, therefore, a learned one says, “We do not have the brain to think, you have to take from what Ulema teaches you” as if they get the teaching, “You just shut your brain up and we do our business, Just keep following us blindly”
Think of this Hadith, I mean do the Critical Reasoning.
In which Salah you can hear Imam saying ‘Ameen’?
Salatul Fajr, Magrib and Eesha, right?
Then if you don’t hear Imam saying ‘Ameen’ loudly, how can you coincide and say with him when he is saying ‘Ameen’ silently?
Isn’t just a common sense that Imam must say ‘Ameen’ loudly for the follower to be able to hear him and say it at the sometime?
But they follow their Ulema over the clear understanding of the Hadith, over the common sense of being human.
So, unfortunate are they, they deprive of this Rahma that Allah arranged for them.
Unfortunate for them, their Ulema deprived them of getting easy forgiveness from Al-Gaffar, the Most Forgiving.
On the other hand, the purpose of using common sense is not to get a new understanding of Deen. Use common sense to understand the best!
And you already know that there are other Ulema, other Madhabs that practice this loud saying of ‘Ameen’ by the Imam. And clearly that goes with common sense!
So, why don’t you do that?
Only because they made you a sheep therefore, blind following tastes so sweet to you?
Only because you do not go for the best, you do not understand the best, you do not have the ability to understand the best?
Only because you follow the Ulema over the prescription of your Rasul, Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam?
May Allah guide you and me. May Allah make you and me live by the dignity being human!
