Reference from hadith

Ibn Abbas (May Allah be pleased with them) said: The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said,

“Whenever ever seeks forgiveness, Allah will set him away from all distress and relief from all trouble, and will nourish him from where he does not expect.” [Abu Dawud].

In another hadith, Abdullah bin Abbas (May Allah be pleased with them) narrates that Rasulullah (ﷺ) said:

“Those who say Istighfaar, that is, often repent to Allah for committed sins, will open up away from poverty and hardship. Allah Azza Wa-Jal. All sorrow and hardship will stripped away; happiness and fulfillment will give in its place. Unexpected and unimagined sources support one.

Rasulullah (ﷺ) has said in another Hadith:

Allah, Taalah, who seeks forgiveness for the Muslim men and women of Allah Taaala, will count this person twenty-six or twenty-five times a day among those who accept Du’a and, using the barakah, those who earthly gained Rizq.

Do tasbih of astagfaar at least 100 times daily, as it is the sunnah of the Prophet Mohammed (sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad). (Tasbih of Astaghfaar at least 100 times daily)

You can say more than a hundred times in a minute, “Astaghfirullah!” The virtue of the quest is well-known: to obtain forgiveness, to enter paradise and to make good supplies, to increase our power, to repel harm, to facilitate matters, to come down from rain, and to increase wealth and children.

Therefore do not delay your repentance in the hope of tomorrow because the future is uncertain, repent now and make it a habit to ask Allah forgiveness by reciting “Astaghfirullah.” The doors of repenting are always open.

Say I believe in Allah’s mercy, I have sinned, I have gone astray, I have been negligent, but still, I believe in Allah’s soothing mercy and forgiveness, I’ll not despair!


The Great Forgiver The Forgiver, who always pardons the sins of her slaves, is one of the 99 names that Allah has named Al-Ghaffar, The Great Forgiver. The Qur’an includes several verses about the value of asking Allah SWT for forgiveness.

“Seek the forgiveness of your Lord and confess to Him that He will offer you good pleasure, and offer every owner of grace (i.e., the one who helps, serves poor, deserving physically, with his wealth, and also in good words) his abundant mercy.” But I fear the torment of a great day if you turn away (i.e., the Day of Resurrection). [Hud 11:3]

Tell my slaves, “I am the most forgiving, the most merciful, indeed, I am the most humane. [Al-Hijr 15:49]

Then, surely! Your Lord is Most Forgiving, Most Merciful for those who do evil (commit sins, and disobedient to Allaah) in ignorance, later repenting and doing righteous deeds. [An-Nahl 16:119]

Your Lord is better aware of what is inside you. If you are right, He is always most forgiving, really, to those in obedience and with repentance, who turn to Him over and over. [Al-Isra 17:25]

And I indeed forgive him (in My Unity) and do righteous good deeds (to the time of his death) that repent, believe, and associate with Me. And I do not do righteous good deeds. [Ta-Ha 20:82]

And Say: “My LordLord, O Muhammad SAW! Forgive and mercy, because you are the best of the pitiful.

” [Al-Mumenoon 23:118]
