Istighfaar, seeking forgiveness from Allah Ta'ala
A lady writes her own experience.
She was a widow of thirty years with five children. She had neither a proper place to live nor any source of livelihood. She was a single widow with five children. It is not difficult to estimate her grief and worries. During those days of anxiety, she heard this tradition on the radio.
مَنْ لَزِمَ الْاِسْتِغْفَارَ جَعَلَ اﷲُ لَہُ مِنْ کُلَّ ھَمٍّ فَرْجًا وَّمِنْ کُلِّ ضِیْقٍ مَخْرَجًا وَّرَزَقَہ، مِنْ حَیْثُ لَا یَحْتَسِبْ.
The man who opts for Istighfar i.e. always begs forgiveness, Allah rids him of every worry, trouble and grief and gives him livelihood beyond imagination.
She was a Mu'min slave of Allah. She began to say, "Now all my problems are solved."
She busied herself and her children with Istighfar daily. They begged forgiveness for thousands of times daily. Only six months had passed that they found papers of inheritance estate. So they constructed their own house with millions of rupees and every luxury.
Subhaan Allah! Those who ask forgiveness of Allah are very dear to Him. He does not render them needy of others. That lady thanked Allah and continued Istighfar. She set her children to get religious education and memorizing the Holy Quran.
