Sayyidul-Istighfaar (The best du’aa for asking Allaah’s Forgiveness)

  • This is the du’aa our teacher recommended to us during the lecture: How to Memorise!
  • Below is line by line to aid in memorizing.
  • Remember when you stop on a word to silence the last letter (read it with sukoon – no harakah).

 

اللَّهُمَّ أَنْتَ رَبِّي لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ أَنْتَ

 Allahumma Anta Rabbi, la ilaha illa Ant(a).
Oh Allaah You are my Lord, there is none worthy of worship but You.

خَلَقْتَنِي وَأَنَا عَبْدُكَ

khalaqtani wa ana `abduk (a).
You created me and I am Your slave.

  وَأَنَا عَلَى عَهْدِكَ وَوَعْدِكَ مَا اسْتَطَعْتُ

wa ana `ala `ahdika wa wa`dika mastata`t (u).
 I keep Your covenant, and my pledge to You so far as I am able.

أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ شَرِّ مَا صَنَعْتُ

a`udhu bika min sharri ma sana`t(u),
I seek refuge in You from the evil of what I have done.

أَبُوءُ لَكَ بِنِعْمَتِكَ عَلَيَّ وَأَبُوءُ بِذَنْبِي

 abu’u laka bini`matika `alayya, wa abu’u bidhanbi(y).
 I admit to Your blessings upon me, and I admit to my misdeeds.

فَاغْفِرْ لِي فَإِنَّهُ لاَ يَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوبَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ

  faghfir li, fa innahu la yaghfirudh-dhunuba illa Ant(a).
 Forgive me, For there is none who may forgive sins but You.
