Knowledge Section:

The following is an excerpt from Supplications of Amir al-mu'minin, Hazrat NOOR Mowlana Murtaza Ali (a.s.) from KHUTBA-81: A lesson about how to pray for His forgiveness, p. 46 Nahjul-Balagha:

"Lord! Forgive my sins which Thou know better than I. Lord! If I repeat these sins please let Thy forgiveness cover them again. Lord! I have always promised myself to obey Thy commands and have always broken these promises. Forgive this weakness of mine. Lord! I have always declared that I shall come near Thee but my mind (has) opposed this, forgive this fault of my mind. Lord! Forgive the sins committed by my eyes. Forgive my vicious and sinful utterances, and forgive my inability to resist temptations. (Ameen) "
[Source: Nahjul-Balagha: KHUTBA-81: A lesson about how to pray for His forgiveness, p.46]

Four out of the 99 Beautiful names of Allah pertain to the topic of forgiveness. These are:

014 Al-Ghaffaar The Great Forgiver He who is all forgiving, with His discreetness. Yaa-Ghaffaar
034 Al-Ghafuur The Great Forgiver He who forgives all with His discreetness. Yaa-Ghafuur
080 At-Tawwaab The Ever-Acceptor of Repentance He is ever-ready to accept repentance of His creatures and to forgive them. Yaa-Tawwaab
082 Al-'Afuw The Supreme Pardoner He who pardons all who repent sincerely, as if they had no previous sin. Yaa-'Afuw

Repentance is the mechanism to return to our Creator therefore it is appropriate to use the tasbi "Astaghafirullahi Rabbi Wa Atubu Ilayhi (Verily, I seek the forgiveness of Allah, who is my Lord and Sustainer, and I turn to Him in repentance)" to implement this Divine command. For today's session, let us use a bouquet of Astaghafirullahi Rabbi Wa Atubu Ilayhi tasbi to clear the path of our return journey to our Creator.

For today's session, let us use a bouquet of Yā Ghafuur, Yā Ghaffār, Yā Tawwāb, Yā Afuw tasbi to clear the path of our return journey to our Creator.

Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim
In the name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.

Yā Ghafuur, Yā Ghaffār, Yā Tawwāb, Yā Afuw
(O Great Forgiver, O Great Forgiver,  O Ever-Acceptor of Repentance, O Supreme Pardoner)

Al-hamdu lillahi rabbil 'alamin.
Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds!
