A man came to Sheikh Abdul Aziz Ibn Baz complaining that he wishes to have a child and that has been waiting for seven years but no luck…….
Sheikh Ibn Baz answered him with one sentence, he said: Increase Istighfaar (Asking Allah for forgivness by saying AstaghfiruLLAH). After one year this man came back to Sheikh Ibn Baz and said: Ya Sheikh I got the child I wanted Alhamdulilah.
A man came to the famous Al Hassan Al Basri and said: The sky is not raining. Al Hassan said: IstaghfiriLLAH. Another man walked in and said to Al Hassan: I suffer from poverty. Al Hassan answered: IstaghfiriLLAH. Then another man walked in and said to Al Hassan: My wife does not bare children. Al Hassan said: IstaghfiriLLAH.
The people who were present at the Majlis of Al Hassan said: how come every time someone comes to you with an issue you just say IstaghfiriLLAH!!!
Al Hassan answered: Didn’t you read the words of Allah when he says:
فَقُلْتُ اسْتَغْفِرُوا رَبَّكُمْ إِنَّهُ كَانَ غَفَّارًا (10) يُرْسِلِ السَّمَاءَ عَلَيْكُمْ مِدْرَارًا (11) وَيُمْدِدْكُمْ بِأَمْوَالٍ وَبَنِينَ وَيَجْعَلْ لَكُمْ جَنَّاتٍ وَيَجْعَلْ لَكُمْ أَنْهَارًا﴾
Translation: And said, 'Ask forgiveness of your Lord. Indeed, He is ever a Perpetual Forgiver. He will send [rain from] the sky upon you in [continuing] showers, And give you increase in wealth and children and provide for you gardens and provide for you rivers. 71:10-12
Allahu Akbar, all this is just in Dunia…..what about the Akherah!!? Isn’t it enough that Istighfaar protects the believer from the punishment….. Allah promised not to punish us for our mistakes in two conditions, the first: while the Prophet Mohammad peace be upon him is among us and we all know that chance is no longer valid. The second condition was seeking forgivness Allah says:
﴿وَمَا كَانَ اللَّهُ لِيُعَذِّبَهُمْ وَأَنْتَ فِيهِمْ وَمَا كَانَ اللَّهُ مُعَذِّبَهُمْ وَهُمْ يَسْتَغْفِرُونَ
Translation: But Allah would not punish them while you, [O Muhammad], are among them, and Allah would not punish them while they seek forgiveness 8:33 So this is a promise from the Lord of heavens and earths, what more do you need to start implementing this in your life?
The fourth Khalifa of Islam Ali Bin Abi Taleb may Allah be pleased with him said: It is surprising to see someone perish while he has the tool of survival, they said: what is it? He said: Al Istighfaar.
So never leave Istighfaar my dear brothers and sisters. The Prophet peace be upon him said: Fortunate is the person who finds in his record of deeds a lot of Istighfaar.
Imagine when you come on the Day of Judgment while you are terrified and everyone is so scared and you find mountains of hassanat waiting for you because of your Istighfaar….
Istighfar relieves you. When you feel that sadness within you, when you are disturbed and frustrated, when anxiety surrounds you, say “Astaghfirullah” “Astaghfirullah”…
Reciting Astaghfiruallah is an effective method of calming our self and wipes away the variety of worldly worries from our mind and body. It may also help us, if we are suffering from depression, it calm us and lessen our depression.
Not only that, listen to this hadith and rest assured that all your issues and problems will go away because of Istighfaar
Ibn Abbas (May Allah be pleased with them) said: The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said, “If anyone constantly seeks pardon (from Allah), Allah will appoint for him a way out of every distress and a relief from every anxiety, and will provide sustenance for him from where he expects not.” [Abu Dawud] Saad Ahmad and 17 others like this.
