I seek your forgiveness O Allah..

It is reported that Ali ibn Abi Talib (May Allâh be pleased with him) said:”There were two safeguards against the torment of Allâh on the earth, one of them was lifted up, so, hold fasr to the other.
As for the lifted up safeguard, it’s the Messenger of Allâh (صلى الله عليه و سلم), and as for the other, it’s seeking Allâh’s Forgiveness.
Allâh, the Most High, said:
وَمَا كَانَ اللّهُ لِيُعَذِّبَهُمْ وَأَنتَ فِيهِمْ وَمَا كَانَ اللّهُ مُعَذِّبَهُمْ وَهُمْ يَسْتَغْفِرُونَ }الأنفال33}
“And Allâh would not punish them while you (Muhammad – peace be on him -) are amongst them, nor will He punish them while they seek (Allâh’s) Forgiveness.” (Al-Anfal: 33)”

A supplication to seek Allâh’s forgiveness:

(O Allâh! I seek Your Forgiveness for what I repented to You from, then I returned to it.

And I seek Your Forgiveness for what I promised You to do, then I didn’t fulfill it.

And I seek Your Forgiveness for what I seeked Your Face while doing it, but my intention has been mixed.

And I seek Your Forgiveness for the graces You bestowed on me, but I used them in disobeying You.

I seek the Forgiveness of Allâh – there is no true god except Allâh, the Ever-Living, the Self-Subsisting, the All Knower of the unseen and the seen, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful – for every sin I did, every evil deed I committed, and every sin Allâh had known.

I seek the Forgiveness of Allâh, I turn to Him in repentance, and all the praises are for Him

I say: “All the praises are for the Lord of worlds” as many times as the number of His creatures, in accordance with His Good Pleasure, equal to the ink that may be used in recording His words and equal to the weight of His Throne.

I seek the Forgiveness of Allâh as many times as the number of remembrance of Him by the tongues.

I seek the Forgiveness of Allâh until He’s pleased, I seek the Forgiveness of Allâh when He’s pleased, and I seek the Forgiveness of Allâh after His Pleasure.

I say:”I honor Allâh from all what (unsuitable things) is ascribed to Him, and all the praises are for Him, I honor Allâh, the Most Great, from all what (unsuitable things) is ascribed to Him” as many times as the number of that.
I say:” There is no true god except Allâh, Allâh is Greater, and there is neither might nor any power except with Allâh the Most High, the Most Great.” as many times as the number of that.

I seek the Forgiveness of Allâh, the Most Great, there is no true god except Allâh, the Ever-Living, the Self-Subsisting, and I turn to Him in repentance as many times as the number of that.

May Allâh exalt the mention of our Prophet Muhammad, all his household and companions.
