A most excellent way of seeking forgiveness


Ibn Mas’ud (رضي الله عنه) said:
The Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه و سلم) said,

“He who says: ‘Astaghfir ullah-alladhi la ilaha illa Huwal-Haiyul-Qayyumu, wa atubu ilaihi (I seek the forgiveness of Allah, there is no true god except Allah, the Ever-Living, the Self- Subsisting, and I turn to Him in repentance),’ his sins will be forgiven even if he should have run away from the battlefield (while he was engaged in fighting for the Cause of Allah).”

Riyadhus Saaliheen

This is the du’aa in arabic:

أستغفر الله الذي لا إله إلا هو الحي القيوم وأتوب إليه
