SEEKING FORGIVENESS

سَيِّدُ الْإِسْتِغْفَارِ

عن شداد بن أوس عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم سَيِّدُ الْإِسْتِغْفَارِ أَنْ تَقُولَ:

Shaddad ibn `Aws narrated from the Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, who said, “The very best of istighfar is that you say:

اللّٰهُمَّ أَنْتَ رَبِّي، لَا إِلٰهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ، خَلَقْتَنِيْ وَأَنَا عَبْدُكَ، وَأَنَا عَلَى عَهْدِكَ وَوَعْدِكَ مَا اسْتَطَعْتُ، أَعُوْذُ بِكَ مِنْ شَرِّ مَا صَنَعْتُ، 

Allah! You are my Lord! There is no god but You! You created me and I am Your Slave! I am upon Your Covenant, Your Promise as much as I can! I seek refuge in you from the evil of what I have perpetrated.

أَبُوءُ لَكَ بِنِعْمَتِكَ عَلَىَّ وَأَبُوءُ لَكَ بِذَنْبِيْ، فَاغْفِرْ لِيْ، فَإِنَّهُ لَا يَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوْبَ إِلَّاأَنْتَ

I admit Your Favour upon me and I admit to you the sin I have committed. Forgive me! Indeed there is none that can forgive sins but You!

قال: من قالها من النهار موقنًا بها فمات من يومه قبل أن يمسي فهو من أهل الجنة ومن قالها من الليل وهو موقن بها فمات قبل أن يصبح فهو من أهل الجنة

“Whoever said this in the day with certainty in it and then dies before evening shall be from the People of the Paradise. And whoever said it in the night with certainty in it and died before daybreak came shall be from the People of the Paradise”.[1]
