Benefits of Istighfar

A man complained to Hasan Al-Basri (R) about a drought, Hasan Basri said to him: “Make Istighfar.” Another man complained to him of poverty and he said to him: “Make Istighfar.” Another man said to him: “Pray to Allah to bless me with a child.” He said: “Make Istighfar.” Another complained to him that his garden was dry. He said to him: “Make Istighfar.”

When asked how the remedy for all was the same, he said, “This is not my personal opinion - Allah says in Surah Nuh, Ask forgiveness from your Rabb, verily, He is Most Forgiving; He will send rain to you in abundance and give you increase in wealth and children and bestow you with gardens and bestow you with rivers.” (Tafseer al-Qurtubi)

Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) used to say: 'Astaghfirullah! Astaghfirullah! (I beseech Allah for forgiveness, I beseech Allah for forgiveness)'.” (Muslim)

“Surely Allah loves those who constantly turn to Him in repentance and those who keep themselves pure.” (Surah Baqarah – V 222)
