The best prayer of repentance

The Prophet (SAW) said “The most superior way of asking for forgiveness from Allah is”

1 Allahumma anta Rabbee

2 laa ilaaha illa anta

3 khalaqtanee wa- ana `abduka

4 wa-ana `alaa ah-dika

5 wa-wa’dika mastata’tu

6 a’oodhu bika min sharri ma sana’tu

7 aboo’u laka bini`matika `alai-ya

8 wa aboo’u bi-dhanbee

9 faghfir lee fa-innahu laa

10 yaghfirudh-dhunuba illa ant

Oh Allah, You are my Lord! None has the right to be worshipped but You.  You created me and I am Your slave, and I am faithful to my covenant and my promise (to You) as much as I can.  I seek refuge with You from the evil I have done.  I acknowledge before You all the blessings You have bestowed upon me, and I confess to You all my sins.  So I entreat You to forgive my sins, for nobody can forgive sins except You.                                                             


The Prophet (SAW) added:
“If somebody recites it during the day with firm faith in it, and dies on the same day before the evening, he will be from the people of Paradise, and if somebody recites it at night with firm faith in it, and dies before the morning, he will be from the people of Paradise.”                                                                            (Bukhari and Abu Dawood)
