Seeking Forgiveness

Seeking Forgiveness /Repentance / Isteghfar

Istighfaar means seeking forgiveness of Allah for the sins so far committed and turning repentant unto Allah. Ibn Abbas relates that the was in the company of Imam Ali(as) when a man came and said Mawla, I have transgressed much "Imam told him: ISTIGHFAAR. Another man came and said : Mawla my land has become arid and parched, what shall I do ?. Imam told him ISTIGHFAR. After a few moments another came and said Mawla I am poverty stricken. Nothing I do bearts fruit. Is there any remedy. Imam said: ISTIGHFAR. Then another man came and said : Mawla Allah has not yet blessed me with a child. What should I do. Imam told him ISTIGHAFAR. I asked him : O AMIRUL MUMININ - though the problems were different, but to each of them you advised to pray ISTIGHFAAR. Imam said : Because Allah says in surah Nuh: And I said : seek forgiveness of your Lord. Verily he is ever most forgiving. He will send you abundant rain from the heaven and will help you with wealth and sons, and will make for you gardens and will make for your rivers.
Imam Mohammed Taqi Al Jawad (as) :"Touba" depends upon four things: sincere regrets, verbal "istighfar", deeds and determination never to repeat the sin.

First:Salat of Isteghfar
The Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.s.) said:
If your sustenance reduces and you have difficulties in your affairs you must remove them by asking your needs from the Almighty with the help of Namaz and Isteghfar. Namaz-e-Isteghfar is two rakats. In each rakat after Surah Hamd recite Surah Qadr once and then say Astaghfirullaah 15 times. Then go into the ruku and after the recitation of the ruku say Astaghfirullaah 10 times. Rise up from the ruku and again say it 10 times. Go into the first Sajdah and after the recitation of the Sajdah say Astaghfirullaah 10 times. Arise from the first Sajdah and again say Astaghfirullaah 10 times. Go into the second Sajdah and repeat like the first Sajdah. Get up from the second Sajdah and say Astaghfirullaah 10 times. In the similar manner complete the second rakat and conclude the prayer. Insha Allah everything would be all right.

Namaz-e-Tawbah
The Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.s.) emerged from his house on Sunday the 2nd of Zilqad and said:
O people! Who among you intends to perform Tawbah?
The people replied: All of us would like to do Tawbah.
The Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.s.) said:
Perform the Ghusl (bath) and Wuzu (ablution) and recite four rakats prayer. In each rakat after Surah Hamd recite Surah Tawheed thrice and Surah Falaq and Surah Naas once each and after the prayer do Isteghfar and then say: Laa hawla wa laa quwwata illa billaahil a'liyyil a'zeem. Then say: Yaa A'zeezo yaa ghaffooro ighfirli zunoobi wa zunooba Jamee'il mo-mineena wal mo-minaate. Fa innahu laa yaghfiro illa ant.
And the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) said:
No servant of my Ummat performs this prayer that a caller does not calls out from the sky: O slave of Allah! This deed has been elevated and your repentance (Tawbah) has been accepted and your sins are forgiven.
An angel will call out beneath the heavens: O slave of Allah! Congratulations to you and your family members.
An angel would call out: Your enemy would be satisfied with you on the day of Judgment. Another angel would call out: O slave of Allah! You would leave this world with faith. You would not be arrested. Your grave shall be expansive and illuminated.
Another angel would call out: O slave of Allah! Your parents are happy with you though they were dissatisfied with you before. Your parents and your descendants shall get salvation and there shall be increase in the livelihood in the world and the hereafter.
Hazrat Jibraeel (a.s.) would call out: At the time of death I would come with the Angel of death and would be kind to you and you shall not have any problem. Your body would not be pained at the time the soul is taken out.
The people asked: O Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.s.), how should one perform this if one desires to perform it in any other month? The Prophet (s.a.) replied:
In the same way with the merits.
And said: Jibraeel has taught me these words on the night of ascension (Shab-e-Me'raj).
