Power of Astighfar

Astaghfar and its Benefits from Quran and Hadiths

“Astaghfirullah” is a door of mercy through which you turn towards the right path.

“Astaghfirullah”.  It is the Sunnah of our beloved Prophet (SAW) to seek Istighfar 100 times daily.

The Holy Quran states:

“But surely the righteous will be in the midst of gardens and springs, receiving what the Lord will give them; for they used to do good before that. They used to sleep but a little of the night; and at the dawn of the day they sought forgiveness…”

(Quran, 51:16-19)

  • Astaghfar opens the door of mercy.

A person who constantly and regularly does Istighfar will be forgiven by Allah Almighty. Allah will not punish the people who always do Istighfar.

Allah says in Holy Quran:

“But not is (for) Allah that He punishes them while you (are) among them, and not is Allah the One Who punishes them while they seek forgiveness.”

(Quran, 8:33)

And whoever does a wrong or wrongs himself but then seeks forgiveness of Allah will find Allah Forgiving and Merciful.

Surat An-Nisa 4:110

Allah is Ar-Rahman, the Most Compassionate, and Ar-Raheem, the Most Merciful. He loves that we ask Him for forgiveness and He has promised to forgive. So we can say that Istighfar opens the door of mercy.

  • Prayers Are Accepted through Astaghfar

“And He it is Who accepts repentance from His servants and pardons the evil deeds and He knows what you do.”

Surah Shura, Verse 25

|bn Abbas (May Allah be pleased with them) said: The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said,

“If anyone constantly seeks pardon (from Allah), Allah will appoint for him a way out of every distress and a relief from every anxiety, and will provide sustenance for him from where he expects not.” [Abu Dawud].

Increase in Wealth, Children and Pleasure

 In Holy Quran, Allah Almighty says: “

Ask forgiveness (from) your Lord. Indeed, He is Oft-Forgiving. He will send down (rain from) the sky upon you (in) abundance, And provide you with wealth and children, and make for you gardens and make for you rivers.”

(Quran, 71:10-12).

In this verse, Allah Almighty is promising us that wealth comes with Istighfar, as does children. Istighfar will open the doors that have been closed until today. Wealth and children come from Allah and it is in turning to Him that we will get them, not in turning away from Him. So it means Istighfar is the gateway to productivity.

Avoid Punishment

A person who constantly and regularly does Istighfar will be forgiven by Allah Almighty. Allah will not punish the people who always do Istighfar. The Istighfar that we rejoin with a great deal of appreciation and guilty will also be able to withstand the coming of suffering and failure. Allah says in Holy Quran: 

“But not is (for) Allah that He punishes them while you (are) among them, and not is Allah the One Who punishes them while they seek forgiveness.”

(Quran, 8:33). 

  • Grantred Pradise

The Prophet Salallahu Alahi Wasallam said: 

“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.”

Sahih Al-Bukhari – Book 75 Hadith 318
