Details of the Question

Are there any repentance prayers (duas) taught by the Prophet (PBUH)? What prayer should we say when we repent?

The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

Abu Bakr as-Siddiq -narrates: I said,

"O Messenger of Allah! Teach me a prayer (dua) that I can say at the end of prayer (salah)." The Messenger of Allah (pbuh) said,

"Pray as follows:

"O Lord! I have done great injustice to myself; that is, I have committed many sins. Only You forgive sins; You are the real Forgiver and Merciful. Bestow on me a forgiveness from You, and have mercy on me. That is, save me from Hell and enable me to attain Paradise and your Beauty with Your grace and generosity, not with what I deserve." (Bukhari, Adhan, 149, Daawat, 16)

“O Lord! You are the deity. There is no god but You. You are free from all deficiencies. You are lofty. I have wronged myself. O Lord! I expect Your forgiveness.”

“Our Lord! We have wronged ourselves. If You do not forgive us and show us mercy, we will be among those who are losers.”

"O Allah! You are the forgiver. You like forgiving. Forgive us."
