The best way to ask forgiveness

Standard

Shaddad ibn Aws (May Allah be pleased with him) reported

 

that the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessingsof Allaah be upon him) said,

“The best way to ask forgiveness is to say,

 Allaahumma Anta Rabbee laa ilaah illa Anta, khalaqtani wa ana ‘abduka wa ana ‘ala

‘ahdika wa wad’ika maa asta’tu, a’oodhu bika min sharri ma sana’tu aboo’u laka bi

ni’matika ‘alayya wa aboo’u laka bi dhanbi, faghfir li fa innahu laa yaghfir al-dhunoob

illa anta

(O Allaah, you are my Lord. None has the right to be worshipped but You. You created me

and I am Your lave, and I am faithful to my covenant and my promise (to You) as much as I

can. I seek refuge with You from all the evil I have done. I acknowledge before You all the

blessings You have bestowed upon me, and I confess to You all my sins. So I entreat You

to forgive my sins, for nobody can forgive sins except You.).”

He [the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)] said: Whoever says this

during the day, believing in it with certainty, then dies on that day before evening comes, will

be one of the people of Paradise, and whoever says it at night, believing in it with certainty,

then dies on that night before morning comes, will be one of the people of Paradise.”

(Narrated by al-Bukhaari)
