The Power Of Istighfar.

Post by Abu Zainab » Sat Feb 01, 2014 8:42 pm

Assalam alaykum,

We often forget the importance of the simple yet powerful du'a/supplication of ISTIGHFAR ie saying: "ASTAGHFIRULLAH" (I seek forgiveness of Allah). Some of its virtues and benefits are:--

-Istighfar removes anxiety and du'as are answered.

- It opens the door of sustenance.

- It opens the door of Mercy and Knowledge.

- Reciting Istighfar helps us to calm down ourselves and wipes out variety of worldly worries from our mind/body.

Ibn Abbas, may Allah be pleased with him, said that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless and greet him, said: "IF ANYONE CONSTANTLY SEEKS PARDON (from Allah), ALLAH WILL APPOINT FOR HIM A WAY OUT OF EVERY DISTRESS AND A RELIEF FROM EVERY ANXIETY, AND WILL PROVIDE SUSTENANCE FOR HIM FROM WHERE HE EXPECTS NOT". (Abu Dawud). You may also read this along with Ayat 3 of Surat Hud of the Holy Qur'an, where Allah Most High says:-

"....SEEK THE FORGIVENESS OF YOUR LORD, AND TURN TO HIM IN REPENTANCE, THAT HE
MAY GRANT YOU GOOD ENJOYMENT, FOR A TERM APPOINTED". (11:3)

We should, therefore, include recital of many ISTIGHFAR in the mornings and evenings everyday in our Zikr when we come to Remember our Lord, Allah Most High Lord of the Universe.
