The act of seeking forgiveness is what gives us the opening we need after feeling ­overwhelmed by the burden of sin. Forgiveness means a way out, a second chance, a feeling of hope with which to turn a new page in life. It is through the seeking of forgiveness that we begin to understand that there is no reason whatsoever to despair of the mercy of Allah. Islam encourages us to not run away in fear of Allah but rather to turn toward Allah the same way a baby would run into its mother’s lap. So lovingly does Allah, Most High, address His sinful servants: “Say (to humanity, O Muhammad): O My servants-those (of you) who have committed (sins in great) excess against their own souls-never despair of the mercy of Allah! For, indeed, Allah forgives sins, one and all. Indeed, it is He who is the All-Forgiving, the Mercy-Giving. So turn in penitence to your Lord. And submit yourselves to Him.” (al-Qur’an 39:53)

We constantly sin so this is such a fitting kitaab

I can't express my thanks in all involved in compiling this book, seems small but inshaAllah when recited sincerely I live in hope it will make immense improvement in my day if reckoning on the day of judgement. Ya Rabb if only I could magically gift this kitaab to every muslim in this world !! i purchased in Ramadan may my reciting this kitaab hold a weight of sawab to all who wrote or contributed to this books existence. buy it and read everyday the translations hit me and made me somewhat emotional...rightlyso we sin! May Allah forgive us all.

A lesser known gem

SubhanAllah beautiful duas for repentance. Every istakhfar feels like it’s specifically written for your condition. May Allah grant Hasan al-Basri (RA) janatul-firdaus.
