Dua Astaghfar (Forgiveness)

Dua Astaghfar (Forgiveness) ‎/دعاء أستغفر

Astaghfar means seeking forgiveness of Allah for the sins so far committed and turning repentant unto Allah.

Allah has created us weak and we are likely to make mistakes and transgress. At the same time Allah has allowed us to seek forgiveness. Forgiveness is very important in Islam. By constantly turning to Allah for forgiveness of our sins, we learn humility. Our Creator time and time again tells His creation to repent so that they may be forgiven. Read more

Satisfaction is richness and safety

Whoever fills his heart with satisfaction regarding the Divine Decree, Allah fills his heart with richness, safety, and comfort. And whoever becomes dissatisfied, then his heart will be filled with the opposite, and his heart will be preoccupied with matters that clash with happiness and success.
