My noble brothers, this lecture, upon the topic of seeking al-Istigfaar - asking for forgiveness for ones sins - deals with one of the most important topics to which the Muslim should give attention in his life and for which he should have the utmost concern. Included in it is the explanation of a tremendous way of seeking forgiveness, from amongst the various forms of seeking forgiveness that occur in the sunnah of the Prophet. We ask Allaah that it should be beneficial to us and a blessing for us.

Whoever says it in the night, with firm convicti in it, and he dies before the morning - then he is from the people of Paradise.” So it is befitting, O my brothers, that we give precedence to memorisation of this supplication which the Prophet described as the most excellent manner of seeking forgiveness ...
