The Best Du’a for Repentance – Sayyidul Istighfaar

Rasoolullah (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) said “The best form of istighfaar is to say: ‘O Allah, You are my Lord, none has the right to be worshipped except You. You created me and I am Your servant. And I abide by Your covenant and promise as best I can, I take refuge in You from the evil of which I have committed. I acknowledge Your favour upon me and I acknowledge my sin, so forgive me, for verily none can forgive sin except You.’ Whoever says this in the day with certainty and then dies before nightfall will be among the people of Paradise and whoever says it in the night and dies before daybreak will be among the people of Paradise.” [Bukhari]
