Book: The Most Excellent Manner of Seeking Forgiveness

by Umm Muawiyah

Assalamu Alaikum.

Well, as the Month of Seeking Forgiveness is here, what is the best way to seek forgiveness?

Well, the best dua for that is the one called “Sayyidul Istighfar” (the best way of seeking forgiveness):

‘O Allaah, You are my Lord, none has the right to be worshipped except You, You created me and I am You servant and I abide to Your covenant and promise as best I can, I take refuge in You from the evil of which I committed. I acknowledge Your favour upon me and I acknowledge my sin, so forgive me, for verily none can forgive sin except You.’

Here’s an excellent explanation of this dua: The Most Excellent Manner of Seeking Forgiveness by Shaikh Abdur Razzaq Al-Abbad.

He starts off with a nice introduction about repentance and its conditions., and then goes onto to explain the wording of the dua. Excellent stuff.

(All his books and his father’s books are excellent, by the way. It must  be something in those genes.)

      Assalamu Alaikum Sister.

      Jazakillahu kheira for your kind words and ameen to your dua.

      [But I think Shaikh Abdur Razzaq deserves the dua more because it was his book.]
