Istighfaar of Sayyidina Hasan al Basri Rahimahullah

From the 70 Istighfaar of Sayyidina Hassan Basri RA

اللَّهُمَّ إنِّيْ أَسْتَغْفِرُكَ لِكُلِّ ذَنْبٍ يَصْرِفُ عَنِّيْ رَحْمَتَكَ أَوْ يُحلُّ بِيْ نِقْمَتَـكَ أَوْ يُحَرِّمُنِيْ كَرَامَتَكَ، أَوْ يُـزِيْلُ عَنِّيْ نِعْمَتَكَ….فصلِّ يا ربِّ وَسلِّـْم وَباَرِكْ عَلَى سَيِّدِناَ مُحَمَّدٍ وَعَلَى آلِ سَيـِّدِنَا مُحَمِّدٍ وَاغْفِرْهُ لِيْ يَا خَيْرَ الْغَافِرِينْ

O Allah, I beg You to forgive every sin that turns me away from Your Mercy, or brings down Your wrath, or prevents Your Grace, or removes Your favors,…and. O Lord, send prayers, greetings and blessings upon Sayyidina Mohammed and the family of Sayyidina Mohammed and forgive me, O Best Forgiver.

A man came to the famous Al Hassan Al Basri and said: The sky is not raining. Al Hassan said: IstaghfiriLLAH. Another man walked in and said to Al Hassan: I suffer from poverty. Al Hassan answered: IstaghfiriLLAH. Then another man walked in and said to Al Hassan: My wife does not bare children. Al Hassan said: IstaghfiriLLAH. The people who were present at the Majlis of Al Hassan said: how come every time someone comes to you with an issue you just say IstaghfiriLLAH!!!

Al Hassan answered: Didn’t you read the words of Allah when he says:

فَقُلْتُ اسْتَغْفِرُوا رَبَّكُمْ إِنَّهُ كَانَ غَفَّارًا (10) يُرْسِلِ السَّمَاءَ عَلَيْكُمْ مِدْرَارًا (11) وَيُمْدِدْكُمْ بِأَمْوَالٍ وَبَنِينَ وَيَجْعَلْ لَكُمْ جَنَّاتٍ وَيَجْعَلْ لَكُمْ أَنْهَارًا

Translation: And said, ‘Ask forgiveness of your Lord. Indeed, He is ever a Perpetual Forgiver. He will send [rain from] the sky upon you in [continuing] showers, And give you increase in wealth and children and provide for you gardens and provide for you rivers. 71:10-12
