The act of seeking forgiveness is what gives us the opening we need after feeling ­overwhelmed by the burden of sin. Forgiveness means a way out, a second chance, a feeling of hope with which to turn a new page in life. It is through the seeking of forgiveness that we begin to understand that there is no reason whatsoever to despair of the mercy of Allah. Islam encourages us to not run away in fear of Allah but rather to turn toward Allah the same way a baby would run into its mother's lap. So lovingly does Allah, Most High, address His sinful servants: "Say (to humanity, O Muhammad): O My servants-those (of you) who have committed (sins in great) excess against their own souls-never despair of the mercy of Allah! For, indeed, Allah forgives sins, one and all. Indeed, it is He who is the All-Forgiving, the Mercy-Giving. So turn in penitence to your Lord. And submit yourselves to Him." (al-Qur'an 39:53)

The author
This collection of seventy prayers for forgiveness [istighfarat] is attributed to one of the greatest spiritual luminaries of the past, Hasan al-Ba.ri, and it has been presented here to offer a way for us to navigate through the complications and pitfalls of this life. Set out in Arabic script, with adjoining translation in English, this edition also includes transliteration of the prayers to facilitate reading for those who are not so well-versed in Arabic. Related by 'Allama Qutb al-Din al-Hanafi from Hasan al-Basri.

Excellent book.
I use this book in my daily prayer routing. I pick out about 7 prayers to read each day. I find the quality of the book itself and the translation to be very high. The prayers themselves are intense. You have to be pretty honest with yourself to accept some of these prayers. I find a few do not resonate with me but most do. I dont find it any problem to skip some.

You will truly cry for forgiveness with this book!
I was able to get my hands on this book from my uncle's house. It was on the shelf. The moment I took it home and started reading it, there is no way you cannot feel affected. Every du'a that you read will leave you feeling penetrated. Penetrated as though what you are reading is exactly how you feel. That is of course if you are truly sincere. This is a MUST HAVE! You will most definitely not be disappointed with this book. And the best part of this? It is less than $10. Don't hesitate. Get it!

I ordered 2 copies of this book after I borrowed it from a friend. Each prayer reaches to the depth of your being and makes you conscious of all the errors one might have committed in a lifetime. It has the effect of bringing about humility and awe of Allah's (swt)mercy. Highly recommend it.
