Learning Sayyid al-Istighfar

The Best Du’a for Forgiveness

Shaddad ibn Aws

relates that the Prophet


“The best of forgiveness (sayyid al-istighfar) is to say,

‘O Allah! You are my Lord. There is no god but You. You created me and I am Your slave. As far as I am capable, I abide by Your promise and covenant. I seek refuge in you from the wrongs I have committed. I fully acknowledge the blessings You have bestowed upon me, and confess my faults. So forgive me, for none forgives sins but You.’ ”
The Prophet then said,

“Whoever says it during the day, with conviction, and then dies that day before night falls will be of the people of Paradise. And whoever says it at night, with conviction, and then dies before day break will be of the people of Paradise.” Narrated by Bukhari This du’a also beautifully illustrates the relationship between Allah and His servant.
