Seeking forgiveness in the way that He loves


Allahumma salli ala Sayyidina Muhammad
habibirahman 'adadama yakun wama qadkan

It is Friday. So let's recite this salawat we learned albeit remotely from the honorable Habib Umar bin Hafiz. We are very distant from him yet he is near in our thoughts. Thanks to his English speaking mureed and thanks to technology, we are able to tap a few of his lessons.

In conjunction with the sacred month of Rajab, we would like to benefit from two istighfar of the many which Habib Umar has recommended for practice.

Astaghfirullah lima yaqlamuhullah
Astaghfirullah kama yuhibbuhullah

I seek the forgiveness of Allah, for everything that He knows
I seek the forgiveness of Allah, in the way that He loves

Astaghfirullah zal jalali wal ikram
min jami'il zunubi wal atham

I seek the forgiveness of Allah
the possessor of Majesty and Honor
for ALL my sins and wrongdoings
